Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow Spotlight on: Amazon.com AMAZON.COM And you are done. Employees: 7,800 Net sales for 2001: $3.12 billion 2001 profits: $5 million Amazon.com is the Internet’s leading e-business, selling books, CDs, DVDs, videos, toys, and gifts. The company also owns significant stakes in other online retailers, such as Drugstore.com, Pets.com, and HomeGrocer.com. Amazon was formed in 1995 by CEO Jeff Bezos, and has its corporate headquarters in Seattle. The company recently acquired its 25 millionth customer, the first online retailer to reach this benchmark. Despite this success, and despite revenues of $3.12 billion on 2001, Amazon did not show a profit until the fourth quarter of 2001, and that was only $ 5 million. End of unit test.9.HP2 2 “There are two types of retailers: those that work hard to raise prices, and those that work hard to lower prices. Though both models can be successful, we’ve decided to follow the second model”, says Jeff Bezos. Amazon’s mission is to use the Internet to transform books buying into the fastest, easiest, and most enjoyable shopping experience”. The company operates international websites in the UK, Germany, Japan, and France, and has customers from more than 220 countries. Amazon’s goal is to be the world’s most customer-centered company, where customers can find and discover anything they might want to buy online-what they call “the Earth’s Biggest Selection.” 70% of Amazon’s 7,800 employees have been with the company for less than a year, but very few leave the company after joining. One reason for this is the company’s policy of giving stock options to its employees, which gives them a sense of responsibility towards the company’s future. In 2001, however, 1,300 lost their jobs when the company restructured and closed some of its operating centers. Choose the best answer 1. What type of retailers did Amazon.com decide to follow? a. Those that work hard to raise prices. b. Those that work hard to be successful. c. Those that work hard to reduce prices.. d. Those that work hard to motivate employees. 2. Amazon.com was the first online retailers a. to be successful in its first year of business. b. to acquire 25 millionth customer. c. to have stakes in other online retailers , such as Drugstore.com, Pets.com. d. to have websites from more than 22 countries. 3. Why do very few employees leave the company after joining? a. because Amazon’s mission is to deliver books into the fastest way. b. because it is a leading e-business which has websites in 220 countries c. because it is the world’s most customer’s –centered company. d. because its employees are given stock options, which gives them a sense of responsibility towards the company’s future. What does each of the following underlined words/phrases refer to? 4. …… by CEO Jeff Bezos, and has its corporate headquarters in Seatlle (para 2) 5. ………. two types of retailers: those that work hard to raise prices…………… (para 3) Which words/phrases in the passage mean the following? 6. the money that an organization receives from its business…………… 7. to organize sth such as a system or a company in a new and different way……… 8. the person in a company who has the most power and authority………… Fill in each blank with ONE suitable word from the passage.
