Amazon relocation

Moving to Amazon SF. I chose comprehensive relocation service. The relocation company told that I will get 45 days of accommodation or 1.5 months of rent paid. Did anyone opt for company provided accommodation? Would that be a motel or an apartment? Or should I choose 1.5 months of rent (in this option I must rent a place as soon as possible, and I am not sure if I can shop a decent apartment online).

    I did choose the white glove service and it was excellent. Depending on the availability in the city you are going to, it could be an apartment or an extended stay. You can always ask for a change if you don’t like a place. They will help subject to availability. It definite gave me time to explore neighbourhoods where I wanted to stay.

    If it is possible for you book apartment immediately that’s a best option because you can save 2 months rent.

    I did the accommodations to take the edge off because I was stressed, it was a furnished one bedroom apartment, furnishings made it feel like a hotel room in a lot of ways, but it was nicer and closer to the office than my eventual apartment. A- would put off move in again

    I took the rent every time. Unless it’s changed it’s a set rent reimbursement in dollars not months. If you find a good price you can get more (less if you over pay)

    You should also get a house hunting trip as part of your relo package so you won’t need to depend on online hunting.

      They said that I will be paid 45 days of rent based on my apartment monthly rent.

    Thanks. I was an internal relo and only got 30 days, must be better for external hires.
