How To Get A Work From Home Job With Amazon
So what is Amazon looking for in an applicant? How can you stand out and get the highly sought after position?
Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO, told CNBC Make It in September that he “likes a rebellious streak in employees — and believes it leads to a more innovative company.”
During the hiring process, Bezos looks for people who are willing to challenge the status quo. He says a manager must ask: “Does this person like to be innovative? Do they have a bit of a pioneering spirit?”
“Maybe they’re also a little bit annoying because they might be … a little bit radical or a bit of a rebel,” he continues. These “mavericks” are not always “the easiest people to get along with,” says Bezos, “but you want them at your organization.”
Bezos goes on to say that an applicant must also be organized and able to help the team. Customer obsession and frugality are principles that the current CEO is famous for emphasizing.
