We do not charge any fee for employment and the same applies to the Recruitment Partners who we work with. Amazon is an equal opportunity employer. Employment decisions are based on merit. Additionally, we do not ask for any refundable security deposit to be paid in bank accounts for employment purposes. We request candidates to be cautious of misleading communications and not pay any fee/ deposit to individuals/ agencies/ employment portals on the pretext of attending Amazon interview process or seeking employment with us. These would be fraudulent in nature. Anyone dealing with such individuals/ agencies / employment portals will be doing so at his/her own risk and Amazon will not be held responsible for such loss or damage suffered directly or indirectly. Such fake job offers and appointment letters shall not be treated as any kind of offer or representation by Amazon. Please note, Amazon does not send offer letters from Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail or any other public email accounts or demand a fee in lieu of an employment offer / interview. If you receive such e-mails, please do not pay any fee or deposit. We request that you report such offers to email@example.com. If you have already made a payment, please log a complaint with the local police for necessary legal action to be taken.
How do I determine if I am restricted from seeking employment or having employment discussions with Amazon or its subsidiaries?
You may be restricted from having employment discussions with Amazon or its subsidiaries if you are currently participating, or previously participated, in government acquisition or other matters involving Amazon or its subsidiaries. To learn how the rules apply to your specific situation, please consult your employer’s ethics officer.

I am a government employee working on a procurement involving a large government contract. One of the competitors for the contract is Amazon. May I apply for a job opening with Amazon?
Certain government employees who work on procurements for government contracts are required to file a written disqualification memorandum if the employee commences to seek employment. According to the U.S. Federal Government rules, the employee is also required to provide written notice of employment contacts even if the employee or contractor rejects the possibility of employment. Please consult your employer’s ethics officer for advice on your specific situation.
I formerly worked for a current government customer of Amazon and while there I served as a technical advisor overseeing decisions concerning one of Amazon’s contracts. If employed by Amazon, could I meet with employees of my former Federal Government agency to discuss issues pertaining to the Amazon contract?
You may not meet with employees of the government client to discuss the contract with which you were closely involved during your time with the government. Please consult your employer’s ethics officer for advice on your specific situation.
Do the government restrictions on seeking employment apply to merely sending my resume to Amazon?
The U.S. Federal Government restrictions on seeking outside employment apply broadly to include contacting prospective employers about possible employment. This includes sending resumes to a prospective employer.
What do I need to know if I am a government employee?
Notice to current government employees: Certain laws and regulations place restrictions on employment discussions between government employees and non-government entities. Before proceeding further, please review the following FAQ’s pertaining to current government employment. By proceeding to engage in any employment discussions with Amazon.com and/or any of its subsidiaries, you are representing that you have confirmed with your employer or through other reasonable inquiry that you are permitted to engage in such discussions under the applicable laws and regulations.
What do I do if I suspect a fraudulent source is offering me a job at Amazon?
Please be cautious of common scams that offer unauthorized Amazon employment opportunities. Our recruiters who contact candidates — whether it be via text, call, or email—will never ask for banking information, or request an enrollment fee. We encourage those who think they may have been contacted by a fraudulent source offering a job on behalf of Amazon to report it via http://www.amazondelivers.jobs/contactus. We actively investigate reported employment scams, and as a result, dozens of fraudulent recruiting websites have been taken down.
How does the stock split impact the number of RSUs in my offer letter?
On May 25, Amazon’s shareholders approved a 20-for-1 split of our common stock. If you receive RSUs as part of your offer on or before June 3, 2022, the RSUs in the offer are in pre-split figures. By the time the RSUs are visible in your account, the split-adjusted amount will be reflected. If you receive an offer after June 3, 2022, the RSUs will be split-adjusted, meaning that the RSUs in your offer letter will match the total amount you will see in your Amazon stock account.
