    Pros

    You work alone, at your own pace... almost. This is speaking as a Picker, you get to know about interesting stuff as well because of the diversity of items you see. Prepare to walk, a lot.

    Cons

    Lots of walking. Lonely. No cell phones/music players.

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive.

    Pros

    Worked 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.

    Cons

    This 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.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your employees
