"Satisfied experience, learned an enormous amount as Software Engineer college intern"

Former Intern - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

I worked at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Many systems and products, so huge opportunity to learn, do anything, and move around. Company takes customer experience seriously, so you learn to be in an environment that can not fail, and must perform. Flexible hours and work schedule.

Cons

Very independent work, and difficult to learn so many systems at once. Seeking help is difficult because only a select few know the systems, and they're extremely busy.

Advice to Management

Better mentorship and more help on ramp up.

    I worked at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    they are just good in price and they treat customer like angel but treat their employee like dirt

    Cons

    this is place is too much pressure to work especially in pick department, they push you too hard to make atleast 100 items per hour and that is impossible to do specially in the pallet land.. they think that you are a robot can walk fast. and number 1 safety rule "no running" but workers are almost get to the point of running so that they can make the rate of 100% coz if you cannot make it they will fire you.. and you get only 15 minutes break, but you have to walk 3-5 minutes to breakroom, they just want you to go sit in the break room and go back your ass to work.. WORST COMPANY TO WORK EVER!!!! they are very bad about calling you over the phone for your termination because they are chicken to see you in person, and sometimes they let you come to work but dont tell you and your badge is not working so you will not get into the gate.

    Advice to Management

    management they need to listen to their employees and lower the minimum rate, before the workers end up hurting therselves just to make a rate.
