Growth & Development

This is a culture of empowerment. We know that hiring and developing the best people is critical to our mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, and we recognize that every Amazonian is a leader who can help us to innovate and grow. We also recognize that helping individuals grow is always in the best long-term interest of the company.

We strive to maintain an environment where people can learn, adapt, and excel. All Amazonians are encouraged to take the time to develop themselves by taking advantage of learning opportunities and finding ways to make their jobs more productive and efficient. There’s an almost endless list of resources available to employees for self-directed learning, and others like our mentorship program and various affinity groups that allow Amazonians to connect and learn from each other.

The Amazon Career Choice Program

A magnificent benefit available only to our hourly associates, the Career Choice Program empowers participants with the flexibility and financial resources to learn new skills.

After you've been employed by Amazon for as little as one continuous year, the Amazon Career Choice Program will pre-pay or reimburse 95% of tuition and fees for you to earn certificates and associate degrees in high-wage, in-demand occupations such as aircraft mechanics, computer-aided design, machine tool technologies, medical lab technologies, nursing, and many other fields.

In addition, Amazon will also reimburse 95% of the cost of all required textbooks. The program will pay up to $3,000 per year in tuition, textbooks and associated fees for up to four years.

We exclusively fund education only in areas that are well-paying and in high demand according to sources like the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and we fund those areas regardless of whether those skills are relevant to a career at Amazon.
