As one of the fastest growing companies on earth, Amazon has made it a priority to offer quality entry-level positions that can lead to either a career in management, or participation in our tuition pre-payment program for a certification or associate's degree. To demonstrate our commitment to our hourly workforce, we recently increased our minimum wage to $15 per hour for all entry-level positions across the country, irrespective of location, and we provide a retirement package. Whether your students are looking for a long-term career or just to earn extra money, we offer full-time, part-time, seasonal and flexible schedules for a variety of jobs in urban, suburban, and rural areas. Our basic hiring requirements are only to be at least 18 years old and have a GED or equivalent.
