    Culture fit is important to us at Amazon. How would you describe your personality?

      How to Answer

      Going back to Amazon's 14 Leadership Principles, we learn a lot about the culture and workplace expectations within the company. Amazon refers to themselves as 'peculiar' quite often, saying, 'we don't mind being called peculiar. We have our own way of doing things. We're obsessed with customers, we see beauty in simplifying the complex, and we're comfortable with being misunderstood. That might sound unorthodox, but our unusual approach and our culture - focused on removing obstacles so builders can build...'

      Briefly discuss why your personality will work well with Amazon's principles and peculiarity.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I would describe myself as a customer-obsessed do-er. I like to give and receive feedback, which I implement immediately. I am adaptable and not stuck on particular rules. I believe in flexibility and creativity while remaining considerate to my employer and my coworkers."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I believe that my personality will fit well with the Amazon culture since I am an independent decision-maker who widely accepts and implements feedback."

      "Being a curious, organized, and passionate about technology individual, I like to build ideas for the future and not for the present. I always think about what I'm doing right now and then scale it multiple times. My creativity helps me think out of the box, and to do that, I usually push my boundaries. I feel that I can bring my voice to your team and embrace its challenges."

      Rachelle's Answer

      The fact that you look at scaling multiple times is an excellent touch that a company like Amazon would certainly appreciate. You do a great job explaining why you are a fit for the Amazon culture!

      It's wonderful that you are ready and willing to take feedback! Besides this, to dig in even deeper, are you able to describe your personality traits and how they fit into Amazon's culture?
