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

    Pros

    Great starting pay and the ability to get raises very quickly. Full training in all areas are offered and if your willing to work hard and sweat everyday for 10 hours a day, 4 days a week, then this is the job for you. The 4 day weeks go by quick, it can be exhausting so proper rest and a healthy lifestyle will help you stay strong within this company. Beat benefits as well once you are a hired on as a full time employee.

    Cons

    After 3 years of working with the company you "cap out" at $15.75, meaning you can no longer make any more money than that as a tier 1 associate. Your expected to want to move up in the company and that is the only way to make a better hourly wage, by advancing into management and operations management positions if there are any openings.

    I worked at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management was professional and treated employees fairly.

    Managers listened to feedback from employees.

    Lots of opportunities to train others and be a leader.

    Something new always happens everyday.

    Culture was laid back.

    Cons

    No medical leave.

    Can be physically taxing if you have bad lifting posture.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps try to update the scanning devices. The android operating system is outdated on those devices.
