    Former Employee - Associate in Chattanooga, TN

    I worked at Amazon.com as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Experience to see the inner-workings of Amazon.com distribution centers.

    Cons

    Organization within the distribution departments were poor, and could have been much better managed.

    Prepare for the mandatory overtime during the holiday season!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be better communication between your staffed workers and your own Amazon.com employees. Standards between the two groups were different, and communication issues led to some staffers being fired for not meeting Amazon.com standards, although they were meeting the staffing company's standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Does this company really understand the local customers before she call herself customer-centric in other marketplaces?
