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

    Pros

    - 3 day weekends (most of the time) - flexible - work with very smart people - great opportunity to move up in the company - great benefits - they are trying to improve the company and how they treat people - rewarding work. Work on projects and sometimes get to travel to other buildings

    Cons

    - long hours ( ~12 hour days) - call over time a day before your weekend so you can't plan much - have 0 say in your location - at least for - relocating can get tough depending on which building you work in especially out of the less desirable ones - physical work. Was so exhausted after my shifts due to lifting heavy boxes and walking 10+ miles per day - claim they care about Area Managers but treat them like door mats - act more as a baby sitter ( depends on the type of associates you have) - People in the distribution centers get treated really poorly - Held up to very high standards and have to write people up if they don't meet the goals

    Advice to Management

    You have people working for you, not robots. Stop treating people like robots!
