Featured Review

Former Intern - Intern

I worked at Central Garden & Pet

Pros

Great atmosphere and culture, absolutely loved it.

Cons

None that I can think of.

Current Employee - Learning Ambassador

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

Pros

The people are usually happy because of the benefits, paid weekly, company bonuses, promotions available if you work hard

Cons

The pay is not as much as you would think for a company so large, management is too driven by hourly rate

Advice to Management

Make sure all employees are good at their job so that we can have better success. Train for positions you think people may excel at and not just bodies in the positions.
