Did you know:

Amazon calls the five-day period from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday the "Turkey Five?" We prepare year-round for this time of year. We’re hiring more than 100,000 seasonal employees this year, and are committed to our COVID-19 safety measures to ensure our teams are able to safely pick, pack, ship, and deliver customer orders on Cyber Monday and throughout the peak holiday season.

To thank our employees for helping deliver to customers during the peak of the holiday season, we announced on Friday we’re providing a special recognition bonus, totaling more than $500 million. Combined with other holiday pay incentives, in this quarter alone we’re investing over $750 million in additional pay for our front-line hourly workforce, on top of our industry-leading $15 national minimum wage and comprehensive benefits. This brings our total spent on special bonuses and incentives for our teams globally to over $2.5 billion in 2020, including $500 million in thank you bonuses earlier this year.

Delivering smiles on the job:

Every day at Amazon, employees come together to deliver for our customers. Whether they pick, pack, stow, sort, ship, or deliver orders, each person plays a key role in bringing the holidays to life. Meet some employees who bring the magic of Amazon to your doorstep this holiday season.
