    Pros

    Good seasonal income--work pace is very fast and time goes by quickly. Work is through Integrity Staffing unless hired as a permanent employee by Amazon. You are allowed time off without pay after working a few weeks with Integrity.

    Cons

    Plan to work hard and switch tasks frequently during shift. It can be frustrating because you are moved around a lot. It seems like the only goal of the company is to complete the work--not a lot of concern for the employees themselves. Plan on a lot of overtime - can be very tiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly keep employees at one task for more than half a shift or even a quarter of a shift.

    Pros

    The days go by fast and never boring. The pay is great and the people are very nice. They care about their people and will help you succeed in everything you do.

    Cons

    Way to many people in one place. You loose track of time and miss your break time, they need clocks or send a message to everyone on the scanner when it's time for breaks.

    Pros

    Smart people; Solid pay when factoring in restricted stock units

    Cons

    Ironically, information systems are bolted together with no coherence...just one-off solutions that get rolled out company wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest some capital in professional information systems

    Pros

    Money, career development, learning, growing potential, opportunities, stability, brand, recognition, very smart people around this will stretch you to limits you never thought about.

    )

    Cons

    Work - life balance...due to the business model it is hard to meet life and work balance. AMZN won't stop moving forward or fast, you must be willing to put 60-70 hours of work/week, if not this is not the place for you. Q1 and Q3 could be an awful experience if you are not an Amazonian at heart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to listen more.
