Amazon.com provides a full range of benefits for employees and eligible family members. While the benefits may vary slightly from location to location, here are the basics for full-time, U.S. employees.
Best thing about Amazon.com is the leadership principles
The best is that they offer health insurance, paid time off, unpaid time off, paid vacation, and restricted stock units. Most benefits take effect almost immediately. The worst part of the benefits package is that it takes 2 years for the stock units to vest (worthless until they vest), and most associates will likely never stick around long enough to take advantage of them, or any of the other benefits.
Vacation and health is okay. Parental leave is mediocre.
Amazon has 401k plan, covers medical, eye and life insurance, great benefits!
I like that they offer this benefits unlike other companies.
Benefits are comprehensive, and lower cost than both of my last two companies. Vacation/time off is good but not the best I've had. 401k not the best, but stock options great! Employee discount minimal. Many small perks.
Amazon's benefit package is very good, as with all companies it may be expense but worth it. The package comes with stocks that can be sold after two years and every year after that.
There were pros and cons to working as a part time associate at Amazon with regard to benefits. Pros: Part time could obtain vision and dental after 90 days Cons: Other benefits were of course not offered to part time, and part time associates were distanced and treated as "others" in that management and HR did not know the specifics of what is offered to part time. Part time did not receive paid or vacation time so attendance was almost mandatory and missing work was extremely punishing.
Have to wait 2 years to receive your stocks.
The package for full time employees is fine. For part timers all one gets is vision exams and dental exams and cleaning.
