Hear what our interns have to say about their experience as a Zebra intern/co-op.

“As this was my first real summer internship, my expectations were primarily that I would be able to see what the industry and corporate world was like in general. I almost immediately realized, however, that I was not going to be a passive observer – I was immediately assigned meaningful and engaging work.”
-Eric N., Firmware Engineering Intern (2008) and CAG Intern (2009)
“Overall, I felt that my experience here has reinforced my decision to become a mechanical engineer and my interest in design. I felt that the internship program at Zebra is well organized and the project I worked on was relevant to the company. I also feel that my time here was worthwhile and that my actions have benefited Zebra.”
-Chapin N., Mechanical Engineering Intern (2009)
“I have gained valuable experience using Pro/Engineer. This experience has not only improved my ability to communicate design concepts, but also my ability to visualize and understand other design ideas.”
-Nick S., Advanced Development Mechanical Engineering Co-op (2009)
“I feel that I have gained much more confidence and independence when it comes to my work. I have learned to solve problems and find solutions more independently first as opposed to asking for help right away.”
-Corrine B., Technical Documentation Intern (2008)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Zebra Technologies (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Just 2 phone interviews, one with the HR and the other with the hiring manager. It was for the Emerging Technologies Office with very few people on the project, and hence the process was fairly simple.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of basic questions about Android SDK and Agile development methodologies. I was also asked to describe the projects I had listed on my resume.

      The HR asked me to provide her a short introduction about myself, and about my general knowledge regarding the company.   Answer Question
