Amazon is a second chance employer that hires individuals with criminal backgrounds. They do conduct criminal background checks as part of the hiring process. Results of each screening are handled on a case-by-case basis for an individualized assessment of the candidate. Amazon will take hard looks at backgrounds with convictions for violent crimes though these are not automatic disqualifiers as the case-by-case assessment applies.
