Sharie Warmack worked at a fulfillment center in Phoenix, AZ as an associate for two and a half years when she decided to take advantage of the Amazon Career Choice Program.
Sharie, who is a single mother of eight, had thought about becoming a commercial truck driver for a long time but the cost of the training program had been a deterrent from her pursuing it. When she learned that the Career Choice program would pre-pay 95% of the cost of the program for her and that she could take the training course right at her fulfillment center, she signed up.
In her own words “Amazon has helped me out a lot. They care about my other options and goals in life. I can see myself in this big 18-wheeler, driving through cities and enjoying every moment of it.”
Sharie successfully completed her commercial driver training program and now drives for Schneider Trucking.
