It's not vague at all. I've already answered you.

It is up to the individual recruiter, whether you will receive further contact. Typically, they'll notify you by phone if you haven't been selected after an interview loop as a courtesy. They may even decide you may be a good fit for other roles. But that is literally impossible to determine. What is certain is that for that particular job ID where it says "Reviewed, Not Selected", you are out.

Try looking at the candidate expense form.
It may give you some indication based on the recruiter level.
For example, the form may read L6+ Recruiting Manager. That means the position is at least level 6.

Hi guys, I applied for a PM position. And I noticed the changes of status. What does it mean when the status Accepted - In Progress was switched back to Under Review? The job post is also no longer viewable for two weeks but the status continued to change.

Hope some Amazon recruiters can shed light on this. Thank you!

It's actually not certain...unless the HR I am communicating with made a mistake. My job ID says "Reviewed, Not Selected", but they sent me an e-mail a few days back saying they would like an on-site interview with me.

Yep. I surprisingly made it to on-site after a difficult 2nd phone interview with the hiring manager's manager, who needed to drop a few hints on a case study question.

Guys, great thread, and this sounds ungrateful, but I don't want to sift through all 38 pages. I am starting the sales interview process. Is there anything I should do to prep? My friend said to stick with the leadership principles and I would be fine.

Hello All, so I had my first phone interview last Thursday after which the interviewer very specifically said I would be contacted within 24-48 hours. It has now been a week with no contact. I've reached out to the recruiting coordinator to check in, but no reply either.

Should I just give up? Contact my interviewer? Keep waiting? What's the normal protocol for response time? Am I being ghosted??

Waiting 1-2 weeks isn't a big deal except that she gave such a tight initial timeline that I'm now in full panic mode.

Perfect advice, Hermione. Just like the character from which you received your namesake - great acuity and wit. I was wondering as much myself, having not attended the Onsite yet, and upon reading this advice noticed immediately that it read exactly that L6+ Recruiting Manager.

As for others, I have not put too much reading into the how/why/etc. on interviewing. My story might be completely different, I applied years ago to a position and let it go without ever following up. I received an email about 5 weeks ago noting that Amazon was interested in me for a position. I sent them a revised resume and then got a note that they wanted to schedule an interview.

Telephonic interview went decently, not as great as I would have wanted but I had really been busy in a new job and forgot the time so I was caught off guard. They returned back within 2 days that they wanted an onsite, handed me off and it took about a week for communication, then another couple of days for scheduling and I'm now prepared for an onsite, got a pre-prep 45min set up and a call with the travel agent set up, and it appears I was approved for 2 nights hotel, and (based on your statement) it appears to be for an L6+ position.

Nice.

I am not sure if I plan on reading the forums too much as I don't want to over prepare, my main view was looking at compensation and seeing if any for my exact position were here. I have read the Amazon Leadership Principles before and find them very close to my own personal values and do not think I will have any trouble correlating my experience to them. I'm used to the STAR method as I've worked for the Federal government before whose sole method for interviews resolves around this.

I'm really curious about what to expect from Dress Standards and Grooming Standards. I left an executive position to a laid back position recently, moving from suits to jeans and Deadpool T-Shirts and grew out a hipster beard, I'm thinking I should trim it back to a goatee and pull some slacks and a button up on but avoid the French Cuffs, that about right? Or -- should I go jeans and polo?

Anyways, regardless of answers here - thanks for the sound advice!

So, first off - if I get an 2 day deadline (example), I usually look at the date to determine response, if this was given on Monday, then I will normally write back end of day Wednesday or Mid-day Thursday. If the deadline were given on Wed/Thu then I will usually give it all the way until the next Wednesday (weekends really put people off schedule).

Just remember, everyone in this chain is human. My responses have been pretty quick, but I have heard "... in 2 days" and the instance was actually a week. I would say shoot an email to the HR/Recruiter/whomever you are working with. While waiting, read up a bit on the position and study for the interview to better yourself and when it comes, you're ready to jump in - if it doesn't, you're ready for next time. The point is, they've interviewed you and will contact you back either way, while people have correlated (fast v. slow) response time to behavior, this isn't necessarily the case.

General response is easy, just be honest and throw an offer to assist, like this:

Hello ${toname},

I was advised to contact if I had not heard of any outcome within a few days. I did participate in the interview on ${date/time}, it was very informative from both directions and I enjoyed the process. I was curious if there was any feedback that might have emerged as a result of this interview! Please let me know if you need anything else from me!

Very Respectfully,
${byname}
