Meet some of our apprentices



“I’ve had some great experiences shadowing our automation engineers during their daily routines. It’s been fantastic and inspiring to work with such experienced and knowledgeable people, and I’m excited for what the future has in store.



“I think an apprenticeship is one of the best things you can do for your personal and professional development. If you want to have a career and develop personally, an Amazon apprenticeship program is the perfect way to achieve that.”



Adil joined Amazon as an apprentice in the Reliability, Maintenance, and Engineering (RME) team in LIL1, France.



“I’m part of the Reliability, Maintenance, and Engineering (RME) team, which operates in the maintenance area of facilities. Being an apprentice means I benefit from continuous training, both at work alongside technicians and in the classroom with other professionals.”



Bechir is training for the role of RME Technician. He says, “The Reliability, Maintenance, and Engineering team is one of the pillars of the fulfillment center. We contribute to the efficiency of the great machine that is Amazon.”



Lana-Michelle started her apprenticeship program in mechatronics. She joined Amazon as an associate in a fulfillment center after completing school. She’s passionate about technology, so when she heard of the mechatronics apprenticeship program, she decided to apply.



“I was attracted by the mix of theory and practice at Amazon, a large international company that’s still growing. The things you learn in university can be put into practice almost immediately. It also works the other way around. You can analyze and discuss your practical experiences at university.”
