    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits day 1. Relatively inexpensive. Voluntary Time Off. Paid Time Off

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations after ineffective and non existent training on a 9000 lb machine. Unrealistic picking rate for everyone, my first day I was called to speak with 2 people about why my numbers are low and why do you have too much time between picks. It was my first full day in this position. 1 hr of driving training only because I pushed for it otherwise it was not offered. From day 1 training in this position,...

    Advice to Management

    Amazon is to blame, not management. It’s company wide unrealistic expectations. Training needs major overhaul, pay needs to be higher for tougher physical demands. Recommend 5 day week 8 hours a day

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Pay can be great when they are not offering VTO. Monthly bonus based on building performance and your attendance. Stock after 90 days, that you have to allow to rest for two years aka you can't sale it until 2 year. The stock is yours after 90 days if you claim it, yes even if you quit or are fired. Again you can't sale it though, you have to wait two years. Health, vision, and dental are all very cheap. Easy to apply...

    Cons

    Management in ICQA at MDW9 is terrible. Theh are never around for night shift and will write you up quickly. Almost everyone has been written up, about 10 out of 15 people. They like to rush you through training and proceed to complain about OP accidents. Literally trained for about 30 minutes and was thrown on a machine and was on my own. They don't take you through the building to show you how things work you have to...

    Advice to Management

    If safety is truly important spend more time training people. Allow those that truly don't like hieghts stick to packing or the loading docks.

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Has good benefits. Life, stock, matching 401 k, pto, vacation, adoption assistance , maternity - Paternity leave, full time forty hour Week , new skills, great main break room. Plenty of on site parking. Easy access to tollway.

    Cons

    Get your location correct ie city. Provide more security cameras in Break areas so employees do not have their lunches stollen . Have quotas that are impossible to achieve just starting. They constantly are calling you away from your job to do something then they complain that you aren't making quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Be more patient with employees just starting. Give your employees full breaks, understand sometimes people do have to go to washroom out of their break time.
