Employee groups helps make Amazon a great place to work
Elizabeth, Jonathon and Tomas. Three different stories, but one aspiration in common: the desire to accelerate their careers. They got a chance with Amazon’s apprenticeship programme.
Technical Recruiter, Daniel Walker and Ewa Priestley, Talent Manager and Leadership Development talk about their careers at Amazon.
“Amazon is the right place for me because my personality can shine and it has helped me grow as a person. I am 100 per cent more confident than I have been in any other job and I believe that is down to the Amazon culture. I feel like I belong and that I can achieve anything.”
“Amazon is the right place for me because I feel I develop each day which gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Plus, without Amazon I wouldn’t have met my other half and had our pride and joy Sebastian.”
“I love my work. Amazon is a great place to work as you can learn new skills and progress to a higher tier role. No matter what FC you are in, you will always have a great team.”
“From the first day I started I knew it would be the right place. There are a lot of reasons why. Amazon is a community. You get many people from many countries and everyone respects each other.”
“Amazon is the right place for me because I work with like-minded people from all walks of life with diverse backgrounds, cultures and nationalities. Amazon is constantly evolving which makes it an interesting place to work. I wonder where we will be in ten years…”
“I genuinely love working at Amazon. Meeting and coaching new staff makes me remember the kindness, patience and help I was given when I started. It’s like working with your best friends doing something you enjoy – what a job!”
“Being able to do what you love as part of your job is rare. I've realised there is plenty to learn here and so I am taking every opportunity to know more and be further involved. It's astounding how much training and knowledge I have been offered from the very beginning. What I like most about Amazon is that everyone is very friendly and cares about their area. You can't find that kind of passion just anywhere. Amazon is the right place for me because it is more than a job, it is a community.”
“Amazon has truly helped me develop my skills and I'm currently using Career Choice too, so thank you! I don’t know where I would be without the support of Amazon.”
