He is usually introduced with the label "Billionaire", he rules over a trading and entertainment empire, builds rockets, irritates with one or the other statement, attitude or development of his private life as well as with the working conditions in the Amazon warehouses, which he wakes up But once Jeff Bezos was just a man in his early 30s who wanted to sell books over the Internet.
However, in order to grow his fledgling empire in 1994, he needed employees - even a Jeff Bezos can't do it alone. The visionary, who was still based in Seattle at the time, therefore placed a job advertisement - which gave a little idea of his attitude towards work ethic.

You probably have to think carefully about whether you really want to work for Amazon and Bezos. However, what was probably a pretty good deal at the time: The employees who started the company all received shares in the company – this point is also pointed out in the job advertisement. If one of the candidates at the time stuck to them, the shares would of course be worth a lot of money today.
