Amazon expands in Phoenix with onsite classroom
Arizona State Representative Diego Espinoza and administrators from Maricopa Corporate College joined Amazon leadership and associates at a special event to formally open its new Career Choice Classroom. The Career Choice Program is an innovative benefit that pre-pays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether they are related to a career at Amazon.
The onsite Career Choice Classroom, an exciting new addition to this fulfillment center, is a dedicated classroom to make it even easier for associates to take advantage of the Career Choice Program. Bringing the same amenities you would find on a college campus into the fulfillment center saves Amazon associates the need to worry about transportation, commute times, or fitting class into busy work and life schedules.
Since the onsite class program launched in 2014, Amazon has been proud to partner with local institutions including Maricopa Corporate College to provide associates with a wide variety of classes at the fulfillment center.
