    Manifest Clerk - generated BOL's, monitored work flow via computer system, ensured timely release of trailers.

    Manifest Clerk (Former Employee)
    Fernley, NV

    ProsWorked in a team environment to complete timely loading and departure of trailers. This was a challenging position which used full resources of my knowledge plus encouraged me to learn new skills.

    ConsThis Amazon.com facility was a "Learning Facility" for up and coming managers. As a result there was a large number of turn over in managers caused by promotions.

    Fast paced, innovative, and extremely demanding

    Amazon Area Manager (Former Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsExposure to all aspects of business, good compensation, opportunity to advance both vertically or horizontally, good networking, excellent distribution experience.

    ConsUpper management is very rigid, expectations are often unrealistic, relatively poor working environment (no AC in Las Vegas DC), culture is "cultish", things move so fast the human element is often lost, many hourly employees are extremely dissatisfied and are challenging to manage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fast Paced, Customer Orientated Atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Las Vegas, NV

    ProsThere 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementStep up your engagement and really hear what your associates have to say. Just a thought.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
