We strive to maintain an environment where people can learn, adapt, and excel. We’ve made a $1.2 billion commitment to upskilling our employees by investing in free skills training, tuition reimbursement programs, and a variety of certifications. Amazon believes everyone should have the opportunity to learn new skills and build their career – whether that means at Amazon or elsewhere.
Career Choice Program
Amazon provides a benefit to front-line employees that pays for education in fields that will lead them to in-demand, high-paying jobs – regardless of those skills being relevant to a career at Amazon.
Amazon provides funding for employees studying aircraft mechanics, computer aided design, machine tool tech, medical lab tech, nursing, and other fields. Currently, we pre-pay 95% of tuition, fees, and books towards certifications and associates degrees.
Beginning in January, Amazon will fund full college tuition for Bachelor’s degrees, a high school GED, and English as a Second Language (ESL) proficiency certifications. Employees will be able to participate in the Career Choice opportunities after a much shorter window – 90 days, and participate for as many years as they work at Amazon.

I believe it is "Powered industrial truck" like a forklift or electric pallet jack. I have worked slews of warehouse jobs and often saw that on there.
06-07-2014, 06:21 AM
Good to know this information about working conditions. Never worked in a warehouse or on a assembly line. I think people have to take a test to see how fast you are on the assembly line? Been told must work 10 hours at least a day.

Called Amazon SMX and they told me I will not need forklift experience. They talked like the production line speed is slow and no speed test or any other test is not required. I will need to be able to work between 8-12 hours a day on my feet.
