How long does PIP stay on Amazon’s employee records?
I was put under PIP at Amazon many years ago. I desperately needed the insurance, so resigning was not an option so went through with the PIP. To the best of my knowledge I survived the (extremely stressful) 3-month PIP, or so my manager said to my surprise when I asked him specifically on the last day. A week after the PIP ended, I resigned (I was fortunate I had found a job outside while I was on PIP). I did not have the talk or the walk of shame.
I have since been through other jobs with good performance reviews, promotions and pay raises.
If there are any HR folks here:
I wanted to know if PIP and performance history is kept forever on records? How would it appear on my records?
How does it affect the hiring decision?
Upon getting through PIP, is there a letter or document the manager gives stating that one is no longer under PIP? it has been many years, so I do not recall.
I am not intending to interview with Amazon, but, just curious how things work.
