    Former Employee - Area Manager in Hebron, KY

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - great experience, kind of a sink or swim environment so being proactive and taking the initiave and quick learners are a huge plus. Either way, you are going to put in situations outside of you comfort zone.
    - Nice signing bonus, mediocre salary
    - great resume builder, especially for any candiates that came straight from college like me
    - Lots of responibilites so the work is more rewarding

    Cons

    - Long hours, I had to open the building at 6:30am (my shift was 7am-5pm), didn't end up leaving til 6pm every nite
    - Even longer hours during "peak" season, I'm talking about ridiculous long hours like 6 days a week/12hr days for a couple months is normal during holiday peak season
    - The environment, between the managers, it is very competitive for your department to hit rates, this creates an environment where any manager will talk behind you back at your expense to make themselves look better
    - Yes you have vacation hours but using them is very unlikely, hard to take time off. You can count on not making it to you family thanksgiving/christmas events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - More involved in daily operations, as in periodic visits to the floor, just so the area managers feels more involved with senior management
