Amazon Transport Services - Sortation Trainer - Bardon
We are Amazon; we pioneer.
Since opening our virtual doors in 1995, we've been pushing the boundaries of possible further and further.
Our entire business works hard to delight our customers – from the second an order is placed online to the seamless coordination of that order behind the scenes, we strive to stay agile, fluid and intentional. That can be described in one of our core Leadership Principles, which is Bias for Action. This means that our teams band together, roll up their sleeves, and aren't content with just standing still. We're aiming to become the most customer-centric company on Earth.
To help us maintain our high standards of service, we are seeking experienced, innovative, hands-on, and customer-obsessed Trainers to play a critical role in improving safety, productivity and the overall customer experience. The Learning & Development team is responsible for supporting change within the sites and for ensuring that all Associates are provided with the appropriate skills and tools to reach new heights of success. The L&D team is also responsible for hosting inductions, cross training, performing skills assessment and delivering Health & Safety training.
