Former Employee - Ambassador - ISS - Sherlock Researcher in Chester, VA
Former Employee - Ambassador - ISS - Sherlock Researcher in Chester, VA

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

Pros

The pay is decent that is literally the only plus

Cons

No stability
Constant threats from upper management
They love writing people up
Very, very limited on personal time allowed to take off
Do not accept doctors notes for illnesses
Ruled by favoritism
60 hour weeks even outside of peak
Shifts are awful- there is no family/work balance
HR never does their job and if you have a problem it takes days to fix and multiple tries
known problems with their equipment that causes problems for employees never gets fixed
Favorites are allowed to walk around and do nothing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit acting like you are better than everyone else and actually do your job. Learn how to support your people and actually listen to what they have to say

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

    Pros

    The pay for managers is higher than competitors, good benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours, no flexibility for single parents, people caring for aging parents, reservists, children calling home sick from school, ect ect.....Which isnt uncommon for most employers these days...they run so lean, that there is no replacement for flexibility for you to be out of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
