Business today revealed that today’s biggest tech and e-commerce build up Amazon delayed the on boarding of hundreds of recruiters over months. Arush Nagpal, an Indian engineer claims the same that after he moved from bengaluru to Vancouver, Amazon cancelled his job offer.
Not only Arush, but many other techs and freshers have similar stories regarding the same. Even in a linkdin post Nagpal posted “ I decided to move to Vancouver to join Canada, but my offer has been rescinded, after a long immigration process, just before my joining date post landing in Canada. I served my notice period, have already shifted to Vancouver and received my work permit.”
This does not seem fair to the people who traveled to a different city for the sake of their jobs and did not get anything in return and Amazon being one big company is no expected to do that. Even other freshers who have experienced the same came together and connected on reddit and Discord.

Amazon fresh, Amazon prime, Amazon web services, Amazon experience and tech, Alexa, health , selling partner services and even entertainment, devices, consumer , services etc all other new recruits are awaiting to join the company.
And due to the delay it has caused a lot inconvenience to most recruits lately. Fears affecting regarding this situation has created an average delay of 181 days. This news was the shock of their lives for the people who were in there for their jobs. Even it is heard that amazon may fire some people in the upcoming days.
