How does Amazon handles relocation request after 1 year of employment. Do they pay relocation expenses? Do they adjust pay? Etc? Any experience?

    Relocate existing Amazon employee on Amazon's tab? They'll have a good laugh.

      Completely untrue. There are both short term assignments (with relo both ways and stipends), and long term relos. Long term come with the same expectation of 2yrs additional employment or pro-rata payback that initial offers have.

      If they send you. If. I had 0 business trips and only free coffee while working there for years.

      StickyClam the axe grinding is cute but the question is about relo not whether you got to go to Miami on a “business” trip

      I don't have an axe to grind. I am thankful to Amazon for giving me enough to double my comp in Google. I never heard about Amazon paying for anything though. May be if you're L7+ different rules apply? Someone form my team moved to SF in a Mazda 3, Amazon gave him vacation to do so. I've been told that Amazon is working on getting less cheap to talent, may be they did. Good for them.

    One of my old teammates transferred from Seattle to NYC and they gave him full relo. They packed and moved all his stuff and gave him a month of housing. Pretty standard at Amazon.

      Re: change in pay, new hires get a ~9% bump in base for working in NYC or SF to adjust a bit for CoL (obviously not enough). I’d expect transferring would get about the same

    Relo package depends on position your are applying, usually hiring manager has a choice to offer or not relocation package for position and finance department approve it or not.

      And by the way - employee can transfer starting day one and even if employee is in PIP.

    They offer domestic or international relocation if you get the transfer offer

    Internal transfer can choose to offer relo. Same team for no reason seems unlikely.
