    Upward mobility and the benefits.

    There’s a lot of set backs.


  2. "I loved working for Amazon"

    Former Employee - Safety Ambassador in Smyrna, GA

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

    Pros

    There was always room for advancement if you're a go getter, there was always extra hours to pickup, and I truly enjoyed the people that I worked with.

    Cons

    As a blue badge if you go over the allotted time you're able to miss even if you have a doctor's note it's automatic termination. I lost my job because of this. I took a serious fall outside of work and was seen at the ER, I was told not to return to work before a certain time and I had doctor's notification but Amazon was not hearing that! I was immediately terminated and locked out of the employee portal.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that management wasn't the issue. HR was the issue and they need to understand that life happens, there should be some concessions given certain situations.

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth, stocks(sorry, no more stocks for new hires), benefits.

    Cons

    Culture can be better. If you’re liked, you’re “in there”. If you’re hated, you’re better off quitting before they find a reason to fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t put numbers above the well-being of your associates.

    Pros

    The job itself, no matter where you're stationed is pretty straight forward and easy.
    The culture is diverse and interesting. You work with different people often and management is supportive. Fun atmosphere. There are some really great benefits.

    Cons

    The physicality of the work can be pretty brutal, particularly for those with arthritis or other bone and joint issues. Working on hard concrete for up to 10 hours a day is hard on the body. Pay attention to how you schedule your shifts, because it's on you if you can't keep up. Breaks are wasted of time due to building setup.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a solution to the 'jiffy' issue and the 'break time' issue. If you didn't come up through fulfillment to get your job at Amazon, take the time to shadow a few associates in each position to understand what we do and where are frustration points are better.

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

    Pros

    Pay is okay. Could be better for job duties where you are required to act about your role without compensation. It’s more for experience.

    Cons

    Communication could be better across management team. More training should be provided to employees so everyone is on the same page. Also associate feedback should be taken more seriously by management

  8. "Atl6"

    Pros

    For part time excellent pay, great hours

    Cons

    No organization, no real direction, need to train associates in professionalism, need a dress code, workers threwing boxes, burn out extremely easy

    Advice to Management

    Learn to forecast correcting, learn to correct people when pallets not built correctly, not wrapped correctly, too many accidents

    None other than if you're not willing to learn the content and work hard and fun then this company isn't for you.

    Management has been great to me, each and every point of contact.

    Pros

    -$15 an hour
    - new break room

    Cons

    - will use you like a mule and then let you go (fire you) once they don’t need you
    -VTO called an hour after your shift on slow days
    -Management all over the place
    - Overall horrible place to work besides the pay
    -will change your shift with a day notice and if you cannot make it they tell you not to come back.
    - horrible parking

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with one another. No reason management shouldn’t know what’s going on. Have respect for your employees.
