Amazonians share stories about why they love their work

Amazonians share stories about why they love their work

 May 07, 2019

At Amazon, people have the chance to fulfil their potential. They can develop new skills for their job, train for new opportunities within Amazon or pursue what they are passionate about outside of Amazon through Career Choice, an innovative programme that provides fulfilment centre employees funding for adult education, offering to pre-pay 95% of tuition fees.

All of this means that Amazon is the employer of choice for thousands of people across 12 fulfilment centres in the UK - and Amazon employees have the chance to share their reasons why.

Sharing their stories of working at Amazon

I Found the Right Place is a collection of stories from Amazonians working in fulfilment centres across the UK. Through these stores, they share their thoughts and feelings about why Amazon is the right place for them.

From associates handling customer orders, to those in HR and IT roles, these Amazonians love delivering for customers, developing new skills and creating new friendships.

More than 500 people told a range of different and fascinating stories through the initiative, from chance meetings of husbands and wives, to incredible team work and new friendships. Others shared the pride and satisfaction they feel fulfiling customer orders or their thanks for Amazon benefits and the positive impact this has made to their life.

Working hard, having fun, making history

At each of Amazon's fulfilment centres a panel of judges picked one standout story that would take the winner all the way to the US - such as Catherine Wintle, from Amazon's fulfilment centre in Swansea.

Amazon found that what all these people had in common was that, like true Amazonians, they ‘work hard, have fun and make history’. Amazon has proudly shared their personal stories and a video of their personal highlights from their visit to Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle.
