Amazon perks for employees

Apr 22 33 Comments

I’m going to join in Seattle soon.

Does amazon pay for gym ? How about amazon prime membership.

Also Is there any employees forum for posting classifieds (I’m looking for roommates)

    No perks except free bananas. There are some nice corporate discounts though. Various local gyms, 30% off Bose and Sennheiser products, etc.

    Edit: I guess the recent $160/month for ride-sharing is a perk too

      I saw that in offer letter. So this 160 bucks can be used towards bus 🚌

      Well you're already given an Orca card so bus/ferry/light rail is free wherever you go. This reimbursement is specifically for LyftShare and UberPool to get to and from work

    Feel free to take another banana. When your parents visit they can each grab their own banana too.

    Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for but there is a discord channel mostly of interns and new grads where a lot of people are looking for roommates.

    Banana is more of a Seattle downtown perk though. It's not limited to employees. Anyone on the street near a banana stand can grab one.

      If you did a quick Google search, you'd know it's called a "community banana stand" and Amazon on its official website tells "We welcome everyone to come by and enjoy a banana; you don't need to be an Amazon employee."

    Amazon is the only company that gives free food (bananas) to the public. That counts for something.

    At least the classifieds should be possible. That doesn’t cost anything 😀

      Amazon has an email list. forsale@amazon.com, where most of the people post such stuff.

    Corporate doesn’t but that said my team on our floor has a shared cost pool and our kitchen has regular fruit deliveries, cereal, fountain soda, and once a week lunch. Plus we have a snack stand on our floor (chips, popcorn, nutrition bars, candy etc) that is stocked daily.

    We also have team lunches and team activities on a pretty regular bases that are expensed by the SDM

    Frugality is an Amazon LP and is encouraged in everything. That said managers etc are allowed certain amount of discretionary spending - most don’t cuz they are a$$wipes.

    Are the bananas organic? Or at least locally sourced? Will kinda suck if not, imo.

      Locally source? I don't think banana grows in Washington 🤔
