Amazon Germany offers career development to depot staff

Monday 25 August 2014 | 11:12 CET | News
Amazon said it is offering up to four years of professional development to staff at its German depots under its 'Career Choice' programme. Amazon will cover 95 percent of the costs with a cap of EUR 8,000 per employee. The training could be in logistics or in a less directly relevant area such as IT, commerce, book-keeping, health care or languages. Amazon has more than 9,000 permanent members of staff at its German warehouses. It says remuneration is at the upper end of the pay scale for logistics.
