https://www.glassdoor.com/Salary/Amazon-Senior-Human-Resources-Assistant-Salaries-E6036_D_KO7,39.htm Seems to be on the lower range even for 0-1 years experience, but if you don’t have a background/internships in HR that may be why.

As others have said, seems a bit low but that is probably because of your degree. Welcome to the PNW!

That seems low - especially for the company and geo location. I'd definitely ask for more.

Yeah that seems like a really low base salary. Was stock offered? I had a friend who just took a role at Amazon (3 years experience) and got 7 shares.

Seems about right for an HR assistant role. You’d make much more in a finance role

Seems a little low. I would ask for higher.
