    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is great considering you can get hired with no warehouse experience. They hire a lot of people right out of college and ex-military. Lots of opportunity to learn other jobs.

    Cons

    Advancement is limited unless you have a bachelor's degree (great place for college graduates). Most jobs are numbers driven.

    Advice to Management

    Better training needed. Understanding why a task needs to be done a certain way would improve work quality. Many employees cut corners (cheat) in order to make their numbers.
