Finding the right place at Amazon

 April 20, 2017

Amazon associates working in fulfilment centres across the UK shared 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 have a passion for delivering for customers, for developing new skills, and for forming new friendships.

Rebecca Mowat (above) has been at Amazon in Dunfermline for over two years and is currently working in the Learning & Development team, training associates into specialist roles.

“I was very shy when I first started at Amazon. Supportive leads and managers encouraged and believed in me which boosted my confidence, helping me make new friends and go for job positions I never thought I'd get. This is one of the best jobs I’ve had because I’ve grown and learned so many new skills.”

Cara Eaton (above) has been working at Amazon for three years and is a Learning Co-ordinator in the Peterborough FC.

Cara feels 100 per cent more confident than she has been in any other job; she believes that is down to the pride and satisfaction she feels working for Amazon.

“Amazon is the right place for me because my personality can shine and it has helped me grow as a person. I am 100 per cent more confident than I have been in any other job and I believe that is down to the Amazon culture. I feel like I belong and that I can achieve anything.”
