    Fast-paced work, which is rewarded by great pay and all-you-can-drink coffee and Gatorade.

    Current Employee - Packer in Indianapolis, IN
    Current Employee - Packer in Indianapolis, IN

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay and the daily benefits (all-you-can-drink coffee and Gatorade), reward system for reporting unsafe conditions ($20 gift card)

    Cons

    not for the slow-paced, no ability to accommodate people with school schedules, i.e. no part-time, boring 8-hour-long class to sit through on your very first day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please offer part-time opportunity to those in the staffing-company phase of the job!
