    Amazon makes people sign noncompetes. They have not enforced it for anyone I know. At that level very unlikely they wont.

      I know someone who they enforced it on, in California it is hard to enforce from what I understand. Be careful, make them get as specific as possible and see if you can negotiate some cash $$ in the event things don’t work out, particularly while the non compete is in force

    Amazon competes with every company on the planet. Ask them if they can enumerate specific competition.
