Getting Paid To Quit: Amazon Offers 2-3 Month Salary and $10K

Getting Paid To Quit: Amazon Offers 2-3 Month Salary and $10KAmazon is unveiling a new business plan… asking its employees to quit.

In what is a pretty unusual job perk, Amazon has announced a program that will pay employees two to three months salary and ten thousand dollars in start-up costs. But here’s the catch, those start-up costs must be spent on starting a package delivery service.

Amazon has too many boxes to deliver and it wants to make good on its promise to prime members to cut delivery time in half. The offer is open to most employees, including those who work in the warehouse. Everyone must be accepted into the program and so far Amazon has not said how many workers will score this deal.

But, those who do will lease blue vans with the Amazon smile logo on it. The company estimates someone with twenty to forty of these vans, will make about three hundred thousand dollars a year.

But don’t forget you have to hire drivers for those vans, insure them, manage schedules and make sure every package gets delivered. But at least you’ll be your own boss.
