    A Thank You bonus for Amazon front line employees and partners

    31 July, 2020

    Today our front-line employees and partners—those who have been preparing orders in one of our fulfillment centres, delivering orders to our customers’ homes, or one of the many roles in between—will receive a Thank You bonus for their service.

    On June 29, Dave Clark, SVP Operations sent a message to our front-line operations teams, announcing a special one-time Thank You bonus totaling over US$500 million to show appreciation for the incredible journey they have been on over the past few months.

    All front-line employees and partners, who were with the company throughout the month of June (June 1 – June 30, 2020), will receive a bonus in local currency of:

    • AU$1,000 for frontline Associates
    • AU$2,000 for all front-line Amazon leaders
    • AU$300 for each Amazon Flex delivery partner with more than 10 hours in June

    Amazon Australia Director of Operations Craig Fuller echoed Dave Clark’s message of thanks: “I’m proud of our team of Amazon Associates and Amazon Flex delivery partners who have remained dedicated to serving our customers so they can stay home and stay safe during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your ongoing commitment.”
