Amazon is offering to fund up to ten thousand dollars in start up costs…and provide three months pay…for employees to start their own package delivery businesses. There is other training and help available too. Amazon’s Amanda Ip…
“Amazon has a long history of creating programs that empower employees to pursue their career aspirations. So we’re really excited to be offering this new career offering for our employees to take this next step in their career and build their own delivery business.”
