I went through the interview process with Amazon. I am currently employed and was looking for a new challenge. I work as an industrial electronics engineering tech and am more than qualified for the positions Amazon had to offer. Amazon saw that I was qualified as well. When it finally came to the pay, they offered $15.00 per hour. I am not greedy, but I am versed in many skill sets in the electrical,electronics, and mechanical fields. I spoke with people I knew who also went through the process and were insultingly offered less. Needless to say, I turned it down. The bottom line is here we have a company that is making billions worldwide and more than likely are not paying their employees squat. I didn't care about the tax issue, but after the offer that was made to me, researching their profitability, and their arrogance of dictating to the state that if they have to pay taxes on sales they will pull out, then I feel it is necessary to rethink my doing business with Amazon.
