    2 What exactly is Amazon looking for

    At the end of each interview your interviewer will grade your performance using a standardized feedback form that summarizes the attributes Amazon looks for in a candidate. That form is constantly evolving, but we have listed some of its main components below.

    The interviewer will file the notes they took during the interview. This usually includes: the questions they asked, a summary of your answers and any additional impressions they had (e.g. communicated ABC well, weak knowledge of XYZ, etc).

    Your interviewer will then grade you on technical program management competencies. They will be trying to determine whether you are “raising the bar” or not for each competency they have tested. In other words, youll need to convince them that you are at least as good as or better than the average current Amazon TPM the level youre applying for (e.g. Senior TPM).

    Your interviewer will also grade you on Amazons 16 leadership principles and assess whether youre “raising the bar” for those too. As mentioned above each interviewer is given two or three leadership principles to grill you on. Here are some of the most commonly tested principles for TPM roles:

  • Customer Obsession
  • Ownership
  • Bias for Action
  • Have Backbone; Disagree and Commit
  • Etc.
  • Finally, each interviewer will file an overall recommendation into the system. The different options are along the lines of: “Strong hire”, “Hire”, “No hire”, “Strong no hire”.
