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

    Pros

    It's a good workout, and it's normally a consistent schedule.

    Cons

    Not enough time off, no room to grow
    Working hard will get you no where in this company. I have been here a year, and I have only seen certain genders and races get promoted. They were the laziest, worst workers you could imagine, and they get promoted to higher statuses. I only see females being promoted, and while that is not a bad thing, these females cannot do their job.
    Best advice at this job, be lazy and you will possibly get promoted if you're the right race or gender. Their "Management" here, pretty much twerks on their shifts (I have seen it multiple times), and cannot act like an actual professional, and that is why they cannot get even the simplest of tasks done at this facility.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional people who take their job seriously. These people are literally scrapped off the streets it seems in their professionalism.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, easy work, same daily routine

    Cons

    No consistency with standard work processes, poor communication, lazy employees, most of the workforce can’t read and have a sense of entitlement, job is too easy and there is no excuse for all of the work errors

    Advice to Management

    The true power is not with the on-site management team. Lazy managers who don’t care about the work or employees shouldn’t be allowed to keep their jobs.
