Employee Benefits

Amazon offers a range of great benefits that support employees and eligible family members, including domestic partners and their children. These comprehensive benefits begin on day one and include health care coverage, time-off, and other resources to improve health and well-being.

Financial success
We help our employees build successful futures through fair pay, and other compensation.

In addition to fair pay, employees have opportunities to own Amazon stock, and enroll in paid life and accident insurance. Financial counseling and estate planning services are also available, plus paid short-term and long-term medical leave, if needed.

Employee health
Taking care of our employees’ health and wellness is a priority. That is why we offer medical, prescription drug, dental, and vision coverage to all our full-time and part-time employees, regardless of their level, tenure, or position.

When employees want to take time away from work, they have paid time and paid holidays, in addition to other leave benefits that are available for various life events.

Caring for families
Our employees are recognised for their work through compensation and valuable benefits for themselves and their families.

Parental leave
Amazon supports employees throughout all stages of their lives.

We celebrate the growth of all our employees’ families through a variety of benefits. We offer up to 20 weeks of leave to birth mothers and six weeks for birth fathers, and parents who adopt. Our Leave Share program allows employees to give six weeks of paid parental leave to a spouse or partner who is not eligible for parental leave from their employer. Plus, our Ramp Back program offers birth parents eight consecutive weeks of flexibility and partial work hours as they readjust to work schedules as new parents.
