SOME OF THE PERKS OF WORKING AT AMAZON ARE AWESOME!

If Atlanta is chosen as HQ2, Amazon's next headquarters, it could bring 50,000 new jobs to the city!  And the perks of having one of those jobs...are pretty great!

Here are six current Amazon employee perks or benefits to drool over:

Top-rate tuition reimbursement. Both full-time and part-time hourly employees are eligible for Amazon's innovative Career Choice program that prepays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a future career at Amazon.

A "network of support" when it's a jungle out there. It provides confidential 24/7 support for multiple aspects of work and personal life. This assistance runs the gamut: from access to financial counseling and estate planning to online assistance with children's developmental disabilities.

Dental and vision insurance for part-timers. According to the Amazon jobs link, employees who work more than 20 hours per week still receive "funding towards medical insurance" and dental and vision insurance with "premiums paid in full by Amazon."

A bias-resistant interview process. Amazon did get a glowing review of its ongoing interview process improvements.

Enhanced ability to adopt. The company also gives full-time employees help with qualified domestic and international adoption expenses including attorney fees, court costs and travel. The adoption edge at Amazon also includes leave prior to, and following, the birth or adoption of a child

Bring your dog to work.. On any given day, you can find hundreds of dogs roaming the company's campus, where they happily enjoy doggie water fountains, a dog park, and treats at the reception desk."
