We are excited to congratulate the latest group of Amazon Career Choice graduates. Hourly associates at our fulfillment centers in Delaware and Tennessee recently completed certifications for high-demand fields and were honored at their schools’ graduation ceremonies.
Today, Amazon had the pleasure of hosting Canada’s Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, for the official launch of Amazon's first robotics fulfillment center (FC) in Canada. On his tour of our brand new Brampton, Ontario robotics facility, the Prime Minister, learned how to stow and pick customer orders at a robotics work station, packed a customer order, and then gave his very own “All Hands” to the Brampton team of more than 500.
Four years ago when Amazon launched Career Choice, I don’t know that anyone realized just how profoundly the tuition assistance program would impact Amazon employees and their lives. We knew it was a peculiar idea, and we knew that helping people pursue their passions and career goals was the right thing to do.
