    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Numbers aren't the only factor in running the warehouse.

    You have to work hard, really hard, to stand out. They don't care too much about what you've done in the past or your education until you have put in your time.

    Amazon is not a place for low profiles from day 1 you need to be ready to take on challenges and prove that you can outperform. High flexibility and you will learn at your own pace bounded only by your limits.

    Cons

    I was working for another 'big' technology company and there were better benefits
