Two of Our Facebook Members Share Their Recent Hiring Experiences
One of our Facebook members, Carrie Rich Hadnot, shared her “I Got Hired” experience today on our Facebook page. Thank you, Carrie! (Be sure to like our page to get our job posts fast and find “the inside scoop” like Carrie’s.)
“I applied for this position at the end of June and heard back at the end of August. Due to my degree and experience, I was not required to do any type of interview. I received an email inviting me to a ‘hiring event’ which was a WebEx online meeting room with the presenter going over the particulars of the job. All you do is listen, you do not speak or participate. If you get to this step you are hired.
“Afterwards you will get an email to submit your background check and complete the new hire paperwork. The I-9 has to be completed partially online (just the part with your contact info) and submitted via either an in person Amazon office or a local business that has contracted to provide the service-they need to see your documents. My location was 20 miles away.
“After completing the I-9 form, I got an email that allowed me to pick my post training schedule from among several. They were all 2nd shift schedules (not sure if this changes). Training is 4 weeks and mine is from 10a-7p Eastern. They will send out emails a couple times of week during the hiring process to remind you of steps you need to complete.
“This seasonal position will be anywhere from 3 to 6 months in length with the possibility of staying on longer depending on your performance. The tech requirements state that you must have an internet download speed of at least 10mbps and an upload speed of at least 5mbps. I have not had to show any type of proof of this yet and I have completed all the other listed hiring tasks. I’m not sure if not having this is a deal breaker. The email I received states you must, ‘Confirm Adherence to System Requirements.’ This seems like very high upload speed for this type of work.”
Another RRR Facebook member, Lori Wilson, also shared her experience (thank you, Lori!):
“I attended another [Amazon] hiring event and it was WAY different than the last one. It was pretty cool, lots of info and they said they are not doing interviews. They are fast tracking people who did well on the assessment, straight into giving them an offer for employment. It’s a 3-6 month contract, with potential for overtime.
“They DO Offer benefits, but you have to work for 90 days before you can get benefits. I was offered the position officially, however I will be declining it because they said the pay does *NOT* Change from $10 an hour once you completed training – unless you are in a state that the min wage is higher than $10/hr.
“*IF* you are offered a full time permanent position, you could go to $12/hr or more. He said that 1% of the hires get offered a permanent position. There were almost 200 in this group and he said about 5,000 people have been hired so far and they are still hiring.”
