I really enjoyed working at Amazon, however I went through Integrity Staffing and they are the real reason I enjoyed working there. Integrity Staffing is an amazing company to work for and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking to work at Amazon. They pay incredibly well, better than Amazon, their benefits are good, they have PTO, UTO (Unpaid Time Off) and Vacation time that are available the day you start working, (along with your benefits and health insurance), and they have an incredible staff. They will work with you and with Amazon to make sure you are doing the job that suits your needs and schedule best and if you are looking to advance, they will see to it that you do. I can only speak for Integrity Staffing in Chattanooga, TN. Amazon offers a lot of the same benefits, a little better health insurance, room for advancement, and as long as you are willing to show up on time and do your job, you can count on job security. I highly recommend Amazon as a great place to work.

Be sure to nail your virtual interview with these tips.
If you are struggling to find a job due to a criminal record, Amazon has options as warehouse workers or delivery drivers that could be available for you. While the work isn't always easy, the pay is decent starting at $15 an hour and often they are willing to give you a chance.
For Ex-Offenders: Amazon's official policy is that they will not discriminate against someone with a felony. The potential candidate needs to meet all the job requirements, and pass a background check. Amazon, like most companies typically looks as far as 7 years back into your criminal history, so if your felony was earlier than that you have a better chance of getting the job. However, regardless of when your felony happened, you should still apply and make a full disclosure about your past in the application.
Starting out as a delivery driver in their Amazon Flex program is the easiest option as it require no interview or drug test outside of a standard background check. However, you will need to own a car and have a clean driving record. If your felony is connected with assault, robberies, car theft, etc, you will likely not be hired.
If you don't own a car, working at one of the Amazon Fulfillment Centers as a fulfillment associate is also an option. The requirements for warehouse roles are more stringent though. It does require you to attend an in-person hiring event with employment documents like a passport or birth certificate and pass a drug test in addition to a background check.
For warehouse roles, if you have been charged with any type of violent crimes, sex related crimes, theft and drug related crimes you will most likely not be hired but you should apply anyways.
According to research from hirefelons.org, being 100% honest about your conviction is a key factor that can determine your chances of employment. All felons that report about getting a job at an Amazon fulfillment center, share that they have been very forthcoming about their criminal past.
During the interview, make an effort to establish a personal connection with the manager and try to get him/her to empathize with your situation. If the hiring managers likes you, they will be much more willing to offer you a job, despite the felony conviction.
