      Cuz the money goes a long way in Detroit. Cost of living is hella cheap. And Michigan has the coolest people in the country

    The amazon brand is worth it. FAANG on your resume is so good

      Even for HR

      No. Not in HR. Nobody cares anything about FANG in the real-world outside our tech bubble.

    I’d say amazon! Boston is def a better city to live in but expensive!

      Lol no, it's not better

    I’m guessing since you work for staples, you’re in Boston. Amazon makes more sense since you don’t have to move. Amazon is still growing so HR will be busier.

    Ford looks like the better offer to me. Unless you prefer one city over the other.
