    I have been working at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    "Working three days a week" (Working more than that would make me slit my wrists

    Cons

    Constant threats about scan rates...regardless of circumstances (ie No boxes to scan) you are written up by someone who is very happy to do so. Hard work is not seen or appreciated by any manager. African employees are the favorites and treated as such. They are not sanctioned by any company policy (wearing pants low and showing their behinds, calling baby daddy while on the sorting floor etc.) or wrote up about their scan rates, showing up at work high on spice and nobody says a word.
         They act like having day off without pay is a benefit. Time and a half after 40 hours is taunted like a benefit when its a federal law

    Advice to Management

    Equal pay for equal work, enforce the rules including drug policy, Stop the constant threats.

    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.
