For the past three years we’ve welcomed parents to Amazon's Seattle campus to give them a glimpse of the work their sons and daughters do on behalf of customers, and to enjoy some fun activities around campus. Teams from across the company - from Amazon Music, Prime Video, Prime Air, the Horticulture team, and many others - participate in the event. But how much do they know about their child's job? As you'll see below, some of their answers surprised the Amazonians who brought their parents to work.
