    Holiday was given for around 17+ days, but during my time there I actually was getting married and Amazon was nice enough to actually give me extra days.

    Generous paid and unpaid time off. Getting a negative balance in unpaid time off is termination, watch these hours carefully

    They offer employees 40 hours of paid time off for the year, which is a fantastic perk.

    Paid time off is given in increments from January to May and then its up to the employee to manage it. Bad Idea majority of workforce is tapped out by June.
