Starting in January, Amazon front-line employees will have access to even more education benefits through Career Choice:

Funding for college tuition. More than 750,000 operations employees across the U.S. will be eligible to have their full college tuition paid for at hundreds of education partners across the country. In addition to funding associate and bachelor's degrees, Amazon's Career Choice will also fund high school completion, GEDs, and ESL proficiency certifications.

Pre-paid fees. Amazon will pay employees' tuition and fees in advance rather than offering reimbursement after coursework completion, ensuring employees don't need existing funds to start accessing the education options they want.

Limitless learning. Amazon front-line employees will have access to annual funds for education as long as they remain at the company, with no limit to the number of years they can benefit.

Fast starts. All 750,000 U.S. hourly employees are eligible to participate in Career Choice 90 days after starting at Amazon. This makes all 400,000 employees who joined the company since the start of the pandemic eligible to access Amazon-funded education opportunities.


Not to mention a higher payrate than UPS. Ft opportunities from Day 1. Insurance from Day 1.

Good luck convincing a 19 year old to take 15/hr job with no insurance and a 500 union initiation fee.

And if you stay with Amazon versus UPS 10 years later will the pay difference and benefit difference be?

There's no telling.

Someone could go to Amazon. Get a Stem degree paid for by Amazon. And be gone after 4 years. And guess what have health insurance from Day 1. The Teamsters seem to think Day 270 is when people deserve healthcare. Beyond pathetic.
