Amazon Seattle perks?

Jul 15, 2019 39 Comments

I know Amazon is frugal (read: stingy), but they have to have _some_ perks, right? Is there even a gym? Any local discounts? What perks can I expect in the HQ?

    When I interviewed there as part of a cohort of new grads, our lunch was Dominoes. They didn't provide any napkins, so the coordinator had to go mooch some from a few catered lunch meetings for bigwigs.

      You were spoiled. When I was interviewed, the coordinator brought a couple of apples and some chips from the vending machine.

      You guys get food too when you interview? All I got was a rejection 😂

    Corporate discounts (generally the same that every company has), an employee retail store (it’s trash), 🍌(for everyone in Seattle), $100 annual discount in purchases (must spend $1000), subsidized parking (you spend $160/mo), access to internal betas (must be at the company for 1 year). Umm. That’s it.
    Oh, an Orca card.

      Does the employee retail store just sell Amazon-branded clothes/swag?

    I feel like a downtown campus is a great perk over say boring campuses in Bay area (not SF)

    I feel cheated. I didn't get lunch when I interviewed. Just Whataburger at the airport before I flew home.

    Also 30% discount on Bose, which is pretty good and is available for all Amazon employees

      Hold on. First I've heard of this. How do I use this discount?

      Go to inside amazon and search for bose speakers it should redirect you to a page for bose/amazon where you can directly buy and the discount is applied

    On-site interview involves restaurant. I ordered a burger. I refused all other on-site food. I did accept coffee. I got an offer and accepted.
