    Current Employee - Customer Service Associate in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good experience, many resources, fun environment, surrounded with high achievers and knowledgeable pro's, opportunity to work from home.

    Cons

    Herd mentality, impersonal approach, rules for every occasion, impossible and unfair performance goals even for a call center environment, you're set up to fail from day one. Bad tech (surprisingly) - too complicated, systems incompatible with each other, lots of redundant work required for simple tasks like timekeeping. Training is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer-centric company mentality is making employee concerns insignificant. To get great performance from employees, cover their backs too, not just the customers'. Amazon operates like a typical retailer yet expects much more than a Walmart.
