Application Process

I need help with my password, who do I contact?

Follow this link to contact our applicant support team:

The application says that the position is listed in Seattle but I want to work in a different location.

The main application is tied to the Amazon headquarters in Seattle. Later in the process, you will be able to select the location and start date of your choice.

I’ve applied but didn’t have the option to choose a location.

If you have previously worked for Amazon, your rehire eligibility will need to be verified. Upon verification, you will receive an e-mail with a customized link to apply.

Can I be added to a “wait list” for a location that is full?

No, there is no wait lists but announcements will be made to current applicants if additional opportunities are made available.

If I decide I want to change assignments and I move backwards in the process, will I be at risk of losing my previous choice?

Yes, if you withdraw from an assignment, that opening will become available for other applicants to choose.

Virtual New Hire Event

What is the Virtual New Hire Event?
The Virtual New Hire Event or VNHE is a required information session that all applicants will need to attend online after applying. You will be able to choose your session date when you apply. Be sure to mark your calendar and contact us before the event if a conflict comes up. If you miss your VNHE, the system will automatically rewind your application to the assignment selection step and your previous assignment choice may no longer be available. 

What time is my VNHE appointment? 
All VNHE sessions are at 9am PST, 10am MST, 11am CST and 12pm EST. 

How do I log into the VNHE appointment?
You will receive an email 24 to 48 hours before the event with information on how to register.

If I have a travel partner, do we both have to log into the session from different devices?
Each travel partner must register for the event but can watch the presentation together. As long as one of the pair logs into the session, travel partners will be given credit for attending.

What if I need to reschedule my appointment for my VNHE session?
Please e-mail before your scheduled event. 

What if I won't be in town for the VNHE?
The event is virtual so you will not physically attend the event. You will log into an online presentation.
