Amazon Support Engineer Apprenticeship Opportunity
I have my on-site interview tomorrow with Amazon for a Support Engineer Apprentice position in Herndon, VA.
Apprenticeship consists of 12 weeks of instructor led training (Linux+ and other training) followed by 12 months of on the job training.
While in the program they pay $32.93/ hr (~$68.5k). After 12 months then you are eligible for sign on bonus ($10-15k) and annual security clearance bonus (up to $45k).
The pay is low but I'm new to the industry and would like to get my foot in the door at Amazon or Google. I'm not sure I can ask for higher base pay or any other bonuses.
Anyone have experience with this program? I just found this app this morning so don't rip me too hard if I forgot something 😅
