Amazon

Amazon delivery

July - October 2020 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

The flexibility and the good/decent pay.

What I wish was different

For the pick up stations to run smoother and more efficiently instead of cutting into my delivery time block even though I’d get there early.

Advice

Organize your packages either by size or packaging material, have a full tank and have a phone charger.

Software Development Engineering Intern

May - August 2020 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

I liked being given the chance to take ownership of my project from beginning to end, including designing it and developing it

What I wish was different

My internship was virtual, and so I had to work on Pacific time despite being in Eastern time. I wish I had some more flexibility in my work hours, but understand why it made sense to work based on the team's hours.

Advice

Be realistic with your expectations, and flag issues ahead of time

Software Development Engineer Intern

June - August 2020 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

Worked with really cool technologies, everyone on the team was really smart and kind and helpful. I learned a ton.

What I wish was different

I had a poor work/life balance trying to keep up with the demanding pace of my internship. But I'm happy now that I sacrificed over the summer to receive a return offer.

Advice

In a virtual work environment, it is very important to maintain a relatively structured schedule. Also, at least at Amazon, there is a ton of documentation on pretty much everything you would need. I found it much more useful to scour documentation than asking someone for help directly.

Software Engineer Intern

June - September 2020 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

Team was very supportive and friendly, Amazon was very adaptable to online learning environment and didn't cancel the internship. They sent a laptop, monitor, and other materials. They had a planned out project for the summer which had a tangible impact and was feasible for me to complete.

What I wish was different

I wish they told me what team I would be on before I accepted the offer.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask your mentor/manager for help all the time, always work on unstucking yourself so you aren't blocked for long periods of time. It's their job to help you and they really don't mind!

Software Development Engineer Intern

June - September 2020 • Sunnyvale, CA

What I liked

The work was challenging since I had to understand the team and all the systems, design my project, and complete it all in the duration of my internship. The scale of my project was intimidating at first but once I started working, I surprised myself with how much I was able to learn and figure out. I also learned a lot from my teammates and mentor, especially from their code reviews. They were very supportive and encouraging throughout my internship.
