It'd be way cool to be allowed to take our dog to work occasionally.

I think people say they are allergic to almost everything these days. The perfume that women and men wear to work these days it vial, the smokers put on soooo much as they can't smell as well as non-smokers. Sometimes I have to leave the area, makes me feel ill.

The dog policy is awful. Before DH moved to a new building with cubicles instead of open areas, he came home every night sniffling and miserable. You can't say anything because then you upset the dog owners. And if you request getting moved to another building, you're isolated from your team.

Also not appreciated: a dog sniffing your balls while you are programming.

I love dogs so I am actually very excited about the dog policy. I do not have a dog though so I see it as the next best thing...an opportunity for me to play with dogs without having to deal with the hassle of cleaning up after it.

My husband loves the dog policy (and I love just being in SLU with all of the dogs around) but he doesn't bring ours. Mostly because she'd drag his desk around trying to play with other dogs. Not awesomely conducive to working.

Default Amazon Interview Process - Last Step

I have read through the forums for the last steps of the Amazon Interview Process. I have done 1st and 2nd phone screens, have flown out last week and had my interviews (I had a blast - so fun!). So... what happens next? Some of the interviewers were going out on travel that evening or the next day and they would be getting together late last week.

My question is this - for those who work at Amazon and those who have been told no... how long after the on-site interview did you get contacted? The more recent experience the better as they are swamped at the moment so this may be a different answer than it was a couple+ years ago.

Thanks in advance for your insights.

My husband is undergoing his 2nd round of interviews with Amazon....he went through the process last year, and even after flying him out for an onsite interview....they did not offer him a job Turnaround time is quick---about a week. He is undergoing the process again (different department) so if you don't get this particular job, keep on trying! Good luck!

Direct message sent. Best wishes. I know the process is long and challenging. I think it's a positive that there were only two phone screens (I hear there are sometimes three), and that they chose to fly you out there. Hopefully it'll have a positive outcome.

My husband just left AMZN after almost 5 years. He always tired to turn around hires in his group within the week. The comments all go into a central system pretty quickly but still have to be managed to make a decision. Wouldn't worry quite yet.

My husband just started with Amazon this week. His first go round he did not get the job. This time well, as I said just started this week. He heard back about a week after the interview.

I just heard from Amazon today, 10 days after my in-person interview that I was flown in for after 2 phone screens.
