This is a very dynamic company: it should your goal to hier in permanently

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)
Hebron, KY

I worked at Amazon.com as a contractor for less than a year

ProsIt is rarely boring. You'll do something different each day. Always a mini-peak season i e college sessions, holidays. You'll get in shape by walking, lifting , & prolonged standing. You will gain physical flexibility when you participate in group stretching exercises. Meet some interesting new coworkers; and maybe a few with whom you're already acquainted.

ConsMight be a lot of long hours during peak time. Production quotas may be difficult to meet.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen. Empathize. Be forthcoming, especially with potentially bad news.

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