Amazon – How much we worked and what we got paid…

How much we worked and what we got paid…

Overall we were offered several overtime opportunities. While they did offer VTO quite often, you are not required to take it. They did, however, cancel 2 MET days, and just didn’t schedule us for one of our overtime days. So that’s lost money, but I feel like our take-home pay was about what I anticipated. What I did not account for was the Boone County Tax, and I felt like the KY state tax was quite high. I kept playing with my W-4, but it didn’t seem to do much. At Married and 2 they were still withholding about 19% total for federal, state, and county. As of 2018 Amazon can only require Camperforce associates to work a maximum of 50 Hours/Week and OT Hours can only be on your scheduled OT day. Camperforce associates do not qualify for holiday pay. And while Amazon cannot force you to work more than 50 hours if the OT is available you can work a maximum of 59 hours per week. Plus during our 10 weeks we accrued 5 hours of Paid Time Off, we only found this out 2 days prior to our departure, so on our last day we did a half day and used our 5 hours of PTO paid at regular time. This will not impact your bonus, take or lose it!
