I found if you didn't do it the amazon way and have inhouse experience this was a waste of time. They're effectively after advanced resourcers - this isn't a 360 recruiter role.

All in all, a good experience but a very rigid company and not one I'd encourage folks to join unless they're very admin focused. Less
