Decent pay, unrealistic expectations

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee)
Fernley, NV

ProsAmazon.com has a great benefits package for their employees, and the pay is pretty good. Most of the people are really pleasant and hard working.

ConsThe company uses up temp workers and spits them out like garbage. They have unrealistic quotas that seem to be set arbitrarily by people who have never done the job. The quotas create a very competitive environment in the warehouse (people trying to get the best/easiest work) that makes for unsafe conditions. The repetitive tasks lead to injuries that the companies safety department won't acknowledge.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry doing some of the jobs before you set quotas for them.

    Cheap company, bad decisions at lower level management, and other than developers, lack of direction.

    Technical Analyst (Former Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com


    Pros: Compensation. They pay you a lot to get you in! Cons: After your big signing bonus and good salary don't expect much more. 2% raises are basically the max. When the stock goes up a bit… Advice to Senior Management: Lighten up on budgets. Do more to get morale high and stop the, "frugal," mentality. It's time to spend money to retain top talent and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
