Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Salary was satisfactory, but not worth the headache.

Cons

After returning from maternity leave, I was laid off. This company functions without a heart and treats employees like factory workers.

Advice to Management

It functions with childlike management that don't appear to understand process. This company needs to get a few adults in the mix.

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

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a 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 Management

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

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, management was very understanding and helped you accomplish your goals. It is a very competitive atmosphere and the strong competitors will rise to the top and begin moving upwards. College graduates have mobility.

    Cons

    Constant work and tight schedules. You are only allotted two 15 minute paid breaks and one 30 minute unpaid break. Typical warehouse work for those who are suited to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a little more personal leave to employees, not necessarily during high volume hours, but more available time to request off during down times and low peak days.
