    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate in Fernley, NV
    Former Employee - Warehouse Associate in Fernley, NV

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Las Vegas, NV

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is lots of opportunity for career advancement if you are willing to put in the work and study Amazon's core leadership principles. The fast paced days makes time more bearable. The benefits may be a pretty penny out of your pay, but it is worth it when you need them. Stock benefits are a bit plus. Your voice may not be much as one sometimes, but Amazon makes sure it hears their associates in numerous ways such as associate surveys and round table meetings.

    Cons

    The vigorous work schedule messes with your life outside of work. The pay may be nice once the check arrives, but there isn't much time to enjoy it. They also do not have much help for single parents without spending the rest of your paycheck, which can lead to times of turmoil at home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step up your engagement and really hear what your associates have to say. Just a thought.
