    We seek to hire highly ambitious people. Where would you like your career with Amazon to take you?

      How to Answer

      It is recommended to research Amazon enough to know how their internal hierarchy works. They have various departments and management levels, offering you choices when carving out your career path. Talk to the interviewer about your career ambitions specifically related to this role and their organization.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "One of the reasons I was so excited to interview with Amazon is because of the endless growth opportunities you appear to offer your high-performing employees. My biggest ambition is to be awarded a management role in the next 3-5 years. I am happy to begin at the Tech U level and work my way up until your team believes that I am ready."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "What interests me most about your company is that there are so many options when it comes to career growth. Ideally, I would like to earn my way into a team lead role, then a division manager position in the software development department. Of course, I understand that this will take many years of dedication and hard work."

      Good personalization! What will it take, specifically, for you to earn this promotion? (i.e., additional coursework?)
