I have had my first interview- playing phone/email tag to schedule my second. Right now the status for the job I am interviewing for has gone from "Submitted-Under Review" to "Under Review"

So can we say that "Under Review" means you are in the active process? Seems like it to me at this point. The waiting is killing me though!

My profile said under review-not selected through my entire interview process, even after I accepted the offer letter. While a good indicator, YMMV with the status. Best bet is to just keep a good communication line with your recruiter.

I am wondering what the average time is for the recruiter to get back to someone after an onsite interview. Is it a week? Two weeks?

Had my second phone interview yesterday which went very well. Got the green light to go to the next step. From what I have heard it will either be another phone interview or an on-site. Process is torture waiting to hear after each step!

Well so much for that! Got passed over. I think it was because I don't have an MBA- even though I was clear with the recruiter about that and he said it wouldn't be a problem with my experience. He did say that I was a good fit for Amazon and that they will contact other departments to see if they want me. So bummed out right now though! Oh well.

Sorry to hear that. I had a poor first interview and I dont think I will be moving on. However, one of the biggest red flags for me with Amazon is their poor reputation for work-life balance.

Obviously not great but I would hold out some hope. There are many situations where another team will snatch you up. There is a way that they can recycle you internally and since a lot of teams are desperate to hire, you can get picked up. They will not lower their hiring standards but many teams need people right now...

RVD.

I was wrong. Made it to round 2. But I think I am going to withdraw from the process. After talking to a few ex employees, I dont think the culture is a right fit. Apparently average lifespan is 18 months as they burn people out really quickly.

Really depends on the job and the team.
My husband's passed the 18 months mark and loves his team and his job. He's even said that if we were suddenly fabulously wealthy, he'd still work there because it's a challenge and fun.
To each their own though.
