Amazon.com Inc. pays one-time bonuses of $500 to most frontline staff who helped hold the corporate’s e-commerce operations working through the coronavirus pandemic this month.
The bonuses, which Amazon introduced in a weblog submit on Monday, will value the corporate some $500 million, mentioned Dave Clark, the senior vice chairman who oversees Amazon’s logistics group.
“Our front-line operations teams have been on an incredible journey over the last few months, and we want to show our appreciation with a special one-time Thank You bonus.”
Full-time warehouse staff, supply drivers, and Whole Foods Market workers will obtain $500. Employees and contractors could obtain completely different quantities based mostly on their function, the corporate mentioned, from $3,000 for the proprietor of one of Amazon’s supply franchises to $150 for drivers in Amazon’s (AMZN) gig-economy Flex driver program.
