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

Pros

Amazon is very nice to interns and summer in Seattle is very comfortable. Interns have the chance to complete a project independently.

Cons

Projects designed for interns could be very different from each other in different groups. Some are very well designed while others are not. A little bit unfair.

Advice to Management

Human resource turnover is little bit high?

    Pros

    great city, the office is very nice, interviewers are pretty nice and patient

    Advice to Management

    Each interview during the on-site tested a specific skill/topic required for one to be successful in the position, ensuring that there are no glaring gaps in knowledge. I would say it was one of the best interviews I’ve done for a front-end position in terms of getting a full picture of the candidate’s knowledge and experience.
