Applications - EEO self-identification
Every non-employee candidate for a US position at Amazon must complete an application and be provided the opportunity to self-identify their gender, race, protected veteran status, and disability status. Outside the US, for jobs in many countries, but not all, Amazon also requests candidates to self-identify their gender as part of the application.
If a candidate completes a profile on Amazon.jobs then they will be provided the application and self-identification forms. However, if you are working with a passive candidate, please be sure to send the candidate the applicable req# and direct them to Amazon.jobs, create a profile with a password, and complete the application. If you only send the application iForm in iCIMS then the candidate will not get the self-identification forms. While you can also send the self-identification iForms in addition to the application, it is best to complete the application through Amazon.jobs to ensure compliance. RA's should ensure the application is completed before a phone screen or interview is conducted.
Temporary agency workers selected to be converted to Amazon employees in the US, blue badge, must also complete an application and be given the opportunity to self-identify.For hires in the US and South Africa, the opportunity to self-identify must be provided again to new hires as part of the onboarding process.
