Amazon is the most desirable places to work in 2019, I applied for a tech position, I was phone screened then promoted to the next round, an online assessment. If I pass I will be prompted to the next round which is the in person technical interview/assessment/discussion. I believe I will pass the online assessment and I am full of hopes for the in person meeting with them. The online assessment is scheduled for mid February.
Today I was contacted by a good local mature company asking for a phone screen around mid February as well. I believe that the fact that I am being assessed by Amazon adds a value into me. But I would like to know, what would happen if I mention it to other companies?
In other words, if I am asked by the later company whether I am interviewing right, would I want to mention that I am being assessed by Amazon? Any unintended consequences to saying yes?
I am overthinking this because if I get an offer from the later company, then an offer from Amazon, I don't want to look bad to the later company or/and burn bridges. At the same time, if I fail with Amazon, I don't want to look weak to the later company.
EDIT: The marked duplicate does answer whether to say yes/no, but does not mention the harm in saying yes, or no.
