    I worked at full-time (more than an year)


    I would recommend, but with strong hesitancy:

    -Straight out of college I made $50k with no experience in Human Resources. Heck, my degree was in liberal arts. Very few of my peers could say the same.

    -If you want to see different places, Amazon has a lot of different locations around the US and transfers are pretty commonplace.

    -You will meet enthusiastic, intelligent people who you will learn to love like family.

    -You will grow an incredible amount professionally, I do appreciate what Amazon did for me professionally. I went from a Sr. Human Resource Assistant position at Amazon to a Human Resources Manager position at another company after my stay with Amazon.


    -Zero work/life balance. Do you have children? Are you married? If you answered yes, look somewhere else. You will virtually never see your children and/or your spouse. I know mothers and father who were constantly torn between family and career, don't do that to yourself, no paycheck is worth it.

    -High turnover in HR and in other departments is a definite discouragement.

    -They say you can take personal time at "any time" but for Human Resources, that is a joke. Unless you are sick/doc appt/car trouble, you will be guilted into coming in every day except for the precious 7-10 days you take off for vacation. I used my personal time for coming in 10 min late every day for several weeks because I knew I was never going to take off a whole day and I was reprimanded.

    -You will be expected to do in 40 hrs a week what should really take 50-55 hrs a week. I was hourly but I regularly took my computer home to work on work without pay.

    -They do tell you upfront that you will work the holidays, I was told that in my first interview. But, you have to work the holidays. You will learn to semi-dread the holidays.

    -I received little to no training coming into my role. I've heard they're finally setting something up, but Amazon is like nowhere you've ever worked before, and a 2-3 week training is quite simply, never going to be enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Running lean will only get you so far until you've exhausted your employees. Human Resources doesn't have the resources (ha!) to do their job adequately, mostly in the realm of sufficient manpower. \

    -Personal growth: Really really difficult to change out of your position or get into another track unless you hound upper management that an Amazon coworker of a coworker who's boss occasionally pings someone in upper management. Make it more streamlined and offer more variety, especially to those in fulfillment centers.
