Fast paced, high stress, high pay, but tough on the family

Area Manager (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

ProsPay and benefits are very good for management. You can also get promoted faster than just about anywhere else. You are judged on your performance, not just who likes/dislikes you.

ConsExpect 80 hrs/week from mid-Nov through December, 60-70 for another 6 months of the year and 50 for the rest of the year. Micro-management is the standard, not the exception. It takes senior management in each building to make even the smallest changes. It is common for one shift or department to leave another in a bad place in order to make goals/set records.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop leadership skills along with management ones. Allow lower-level managers some freedom to make decisions. Develop teams, let them grow.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
