Software Development Engineering Intern

May - August 2020 • Tempe, AZ

What I liked

The team I was in for the internship is absolutely amazing. The manager is really caring, and was giving feedback each week. My mentor did a great job to direct me during my internship project. Although I made a mistake which caused a sev-2, the manager is kind enough to give me chance to correct my mistake, and gives me a return offer after the internship.

What I wish was different

I wish I will be more caring about my project, as I caused a small trouble during my internship. But it is a great experience to correct your mistake overall.

Advice

Do your own research before asking questions to the manager and the mentor. They are busy, especially during this special time, the COVID19 makes the communication a lot harder, but make sure to speak up when you cannot handle the problem on your own. But the most important thing is, you need to enjoy your work, and learn from your mistake.

What I liked

I really enjoy working and networking in such a big company, I loved learning about cloud services and how impactful enterprises can be for small and medium businesses.

Accounting Intern

June - September 2020 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

Salary was great, as well as the relocation bonus Amazon gave us. We still got the relocation bonus even though we interned virtually due to COVID. I obviously liked the fact that Amazon didn’t cancel the internship, and kept it a 12-week internship as previously accorded. I also liked how Amazon gave us real meaningful projects, which really impacted the company and the accounting organization.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship had been in person, but we all know this was not possible due to COVID. I did miss the human interaction part, and I think that made the internship a bit more challenging. Also, I wish my project was more focused on operational accounting or technical accounting, rather than in project management.

Advice

Amazon is a very different and peculiar company. It is unlike anything you have seen or heard before. That being said, people are there to help you. Amazon assigns mentors to every intern, which is great. Do take advantage of your mentor, your buddy, as well as your manage. Ask for help. People understand you’re an intern and you probably have no clue what you are doing or should be doing. It will take you some time, or at least it took me some time, to adjust to Amazon’s fast paced culture. It’s normal, and it’s totally fine.

Software Development Engineering Intern

June - August 2019 • Tempe, AZ

What I liked

I was on a fantastic team of talented software engineers that were casual yet effective. I learned a lot from them throughout my internship. Also, we travelled to Seattle twice, one week each, which was a blast. The overall work atmosphere was pretty chill and conducive of learning.

What I wish was different

Honestly can't think of anything.

Advice

For one, really try to get an internship at Amazon over Summer, it's great. Second, don't be scared to ask a bunch of questions and take notes while doing so. I literally had a list of questions and their answers by the end of the first couple of weeks, which proved helpful. Your mentor and manager actually like it when you are expanding your understanding as much as you can.
