Former Employee - Delivery Driver

I worked at Amazon full-time for less than a year

Pros

They are a company that wants you to succeed

Cons

Just it takes a long time to get prepared for your first drop

Advice to Management

Just have packages sorted out early enough

Current Employee - Expansion Pack

I have been working at Shopify full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great company culture, colleagues in SF are wonderful, regular travel opportunities, interesting problems to work on, growth opportunities, great benefits.

Cons

Some internal politics and battles for resources (but I've seen much worse). It can be challenging to be a small US office of a large Canadian company but the HQ offices are getting better at... remembering about us.

Advice to Management

I have high confidence in the way things are going.
