    I have been working at Amazon.com

    Pros

    I absolutely love working in an Amazon Fulfilment Center in Schertz, Tx. I will be sad indeed when seasonal peak is over and they start firing seasonal workers. All of the bosses are wonderful and really contribute to the team feeling you get there. The work is hard but at the end of the day you feel great about yourself.

    Cons

    The only major con is not really to do with amazon... During peak they hire so many people some are hard to work with but most of my coworkers have great positive attitudes. The only other is the long hours. It's exhausting work and an 11 hour shift leaves you tired.
