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

    Pros

    when I started I could make my own schedule but they don't do that anymore. You can cross train and learn different aspects of the job.

    Cons

    the pay, working in the freezer, can't keep good managers, they don't give raises. Many worked 1-2.5 yrs. without a raise and they were very loyal and hard working. Amazon makes way too much money to treat their employees like this!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees! Give us our due raises every 6 months!

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    BENEFITS!! Benefits start on day one(vs 30-90 days for other companies). Accrued vacation/Paid Time Off, Quarterly Unpaid Time Off, Stocks, performance and attendance bonuses, training opportunities, schedule(I currently work 4 nights a week). Lateral transfers are fairly easy.

    Cons

    Depending on your building, it can be hard to move up. Management can be a pain & VERY incompetent. They care way too much about numbers and sometimes not the well being of associates. Hours can be very long during peak season(think six 12hr shifts). Pay is insanely low for the amount of work that’s required.

    Advice to Management

    Most FC Associates are definitely not being paid livable wages. We can pay bills with the stocks and benefits that’s offered so please don’t take that into account when determining whether the building in question will get a raise.
