Our Approach Amazon strives to be a great place to work, whether our employees are building lifelong careers with us or developing skills to help them on their professional journeys. This begins with offering competitive starting wages in locations around the world, and continues with benefits, support, and opportunities to help employees reach their full potential. Going Above and Beyond With Starting Wages We’re proud that our average starting wage has increased to $18 per hour in the U.S. In the UK, Germany, and France, our minimum starting wages are 10 GBP, 12 EUR, and 10.88 EUR, respectively. Providing a Range of Employee Benefits We believe that a diverse, passionate workforce is key to a successful business. Amazon is building a strong culture and making investments to attract and retain the talented employees we need today and in the future. The Ripple Effect Sylvia’s Café, a Caribbean-style restaurant run by wife-and-husband team Sylvia Burke and François Theodore, is located near a 2.4 million square- foot Amazon fulfillment center in Opa-locka, Florida. Throughout the pandemic, the presence of Amazon employees looking for great food meant that the doors of Sylvia’s Café didn’t shut. This was thanks, in part, to employees like Nelly Nelson, whose higher wage means she can make better food choices. “ Instead of fast food, I’m able to eat better, healthier food,” she said. There are similar stories across our operations network, from EastBrew Café and Bakery near a fulfillment center in Eastvale, California, to The Parlor Salon and Spa in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. These are small examples of the big impact our wages are having on communities across the U.S. 2021 Awards and Recognition #1 LinkedIn’s Most Desired Place to Work in the U.S. #2 Fortune ’s Top Companies in 2021 #4 Forbes World’s Best Employers in 2021 #1 AmbitionBox Best Place to Work in India Amongst Mega Companies 2021 Top Employer In France, Italy, and Spain (Top Employers Institute) Amazon also received several awards from Comparably, a company that reviews and compares company cultures and market compensation to showcase the most fair and accurate display of employer brands.
