Area Manager Intern

May - July 2021 • Lewisville, TX

What I liked

I liked how I got to learn about operations and further my knowledge in supply chain. I was also given a lot of responsibility and autonomy, which was great because I got to make actual change within the delivery station.

What I wish was different

This shift schedule was pretty brutal (I worked 12:30 am to 10:30am), but that's just kind of the nature of Amazon operations.

Advice

Placements take a while to come out after you get hired, so be ready to wait a while. Also be prepared to work the night shift.

more flexible hours that could have allowed me to continue working at amazon when i returned to school for the fall semester

Applying for an amazon warehouse position requires you to be able bodied, have high tolerance for long hours and manual labor, 40+ hours a week minimum, etc. It is a time and labor consuming job that requires adjustment and high tolerance.

Area manager intern

May - July 2021 • Beaumont, CA

What I liked

The challenges I was faced with. Everyday brought a new barrier I had to over come and made me learn a lot from these experiences. I also enjoyed my managers and they were extremely helpful and showed me a lot.

What I wish was different

Some days were very unorganized. I worked at a new fulfillment center that was still getting broken into. This made some days challenging but I over came this through asking questions and being resilient even when things didn't go my way.

Advice

I would highly recommend applying to jobs out of your comfort zone. I was nervous for the job being a manager in a completely different state but ended up being the best experience of my life.

What I liked

Great location, nice offices (though there were no snacks), manager was pretty chill

What I wish was different

I would have preferred to work with my team in-person more. Also, my team was not at all diverse (in my team of 10, there was no STEM minority representation).

Advice

Reach out to team members early and often.

Jr. Developer

June 2021 • San Luis Obispo, CA

What I liked

The learning experience and all the full time devs that you work with have been super helpful.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been more open to help in the beginning. Initially I've just tried to do too much by myself without asking for help, which is different now but I wish I'd started that sooner

Advice

Get ready to learn! There's so many new things introduced that it might feel overwhelming but don't be afraid to reach out to other devs to help.
