What most excites you about your new job?

Having an opportunity to influence the backbone of Amazon's operations.

Where were you previously?

Amazon! (I was part of mass layoffs, I had to re-interview to get my job back).

What was your preparation strategy?

Between actual interviews and prep, I spent easily over 70 hours preparing. I used a variety of resources including TryExponent and Dailyproduct prep. I did mock interviews with friends and then with IGotAnoffer coaches. And I also used Lewis Lin's prep schedule suggestions.

What was the hardest part of the whole interview process?

Securing the interview!

Do you have any final tips for other candidates?

It's very easy to get discouraged but trust that the right role and opportunity is out there to be seized.
