Associate Worker - Seasonal Hire

May - September 2019 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

Weekly pay schedule, no dress code, consistent hours

What I wish was different

expectations need to be lowered, general organization needs to be improved, an increase in the variety of shifts available is overdue

Advice

one must be fully mentally and physically committed to the workload at Amazon. If you work at Amazon solely for the above-average hourly wage, you will be worn out by the end of your first week. Since you have a set schedule it's easy to mentally prepare yourself for work in the future, not to mention the work is always consistent, meaning you're constantly moving packages and not dealing with unpredictable costumers.

Software Development Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • Santa Clara, CA

What I liked

The work I was doing was impactful. Code I wrote was being put into production while I was an intern, so I got to see the development process from start to finish. The team I worked with was also very easy to work with, and the manager was very relaxed about scheduling. If I had a conflict or needed to shift my hours around one week, it was very easy to do so. Also, I heard from other internships that sometimes the companies wouldn't really know exactly what to do with their interns, and might not have work for them. Amazon was very prepared for me, and even had extra features for me to work on if I was to finish the main goals early.

What I wish was different

Not much honestly. It was a great experience and I'm glad I got to work with them

Advice

The interview was harder than the internship, so don't feel stressed out if the interview seems really tough and you aren't prepared for it.
