Still, working at Amazon comes with perks.
Amazon realizes that working at fulfillment centers is tough and hopes that people will use these jobs as a stepping stone to a better career. For example, after an employee has been with Amazon for a year, they can take any training related to a job currently in demand. And Amazon will pay for 95% of the training fees.
Even if their goal is to become a nurse or programmer at another business, Amazon will pay for it. The idea is that a competitive wage plus benefits acts as a stepping stone for people who want to earn some money and have development opportunities to pursue their ideal careers.
