From Amazon Milton Keynes to Amazon Seattle for one lucky employee
Daniela Cotoros, one of Amazon's employees at our Milton Keynes fulfilment centre, is going on a special trip to Seattle to visit Amazon's global headquarters.
Amazon invited employees at its fulfilment centres across the UK to say what they like best about working at Amazon and why it is the right place for them.
More than 800 employees from across the UK and dozens from each site took part.
One person from each fulfilment centre will visit Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle this October as part of the ‘I Found the Right Place’ programme.
Daniela was the lucky Milton Keynes employee chosen for the trip. The fulfilment centre associate, who has worked for the company for three years, wrote: “For me Amazon is such a great place to work because it fits around my schedule well, I work nights so I am able to take my girls to school in the mornings. I have also found the Career Choice programme to be a great benefit as my dream is to work in finance so I am currently studying accountancy; I have completed level 2 and am now starting level 3.”
During the five-day trip to Seattle, Daniela and Amazon colleagues from sites across the UK will be shown around the city and enjoy a trip up the Space Needle.
They will also go on a tour of the Amazon campus and the robotics fulfilment centre in Kent, Washington, where they will meet Amazon’s Chief Scientist.
Daniela said: “At Amazon I feel like I am part of a big family where each individual can contribute to making customers happy, especially at Christmas time! Achievements are recognised and lead to career progression and the benefits are great! I also enjoy the family events we have.”
Scott Wharton, general manager at Amazon’s Milton Keynes fulfilment centre said: “We take pride in providing a positive workplace and a great environment and I am delighted that Daniela will be jetting off to Seattle for the trip of a lifetime.”
