I got through the first stage for a summer internship at Amazon. They send me a link to a technical test with a 7 day deadline to complete.

The link brings me to a 404 page. Fuck.

I contact customer support, reach out to Amazon directly, don't get any response whatsoever. The week has passed and the link is still dead and I s received no word from them.

FML. And fuck Amazon for teasing me like this and for having such shitty technical support.

    Did you view the source for the 404 page? Maybe it's a test within a test...

    Meh, I'm probably giving them too much credit... 🤓

    @cdrice I can confirm it was a test of a test, it's a fake 404 with the basics of looking at source to find the real link to start it, sorry op

    If you didnt make any connections that you could reach out to directly during tbe course of your internship... then you fucked up.

    @Ronald He didn't start the internship yet, so what connection is he supposed to make?

    @deadlyRants oh sorry. For some reason I read this as he already did the internship and is trying to come back fulltime.

    @Ronald how did you end up at such a conclusion; that is nothing like my original post XD

    @gears @cdrice I already looked at the source and console and page inspection and there is nothing there. It would have been clever for them to do that, but I honestly think I ended up with a genuine 404 page.

    What is bothering me, though, is Amazon not responding whatsoever...

    @Koolstr did you check the headers? (⌒o⌒)

    @gears That would be pushing it quite a bit though, don't you think?

    @Koolstr not at all, I once have a review that took me over 3 hours to finally see they key I was looking for was in the literal packet sent by the server to my client test app and I had to dig really deep to find that information to continue, some companies are very serious about the kind if people they are looking for.

    @gears Interesting. Welp let's hope they weren't that serious >. <
