    Pros

    It has many benefits.

    Cons

    .There is limited room for promotion
    . It has low employee retention history
    .Favouritism is becoming the salient feature

    Advice to Management

    . Work on employee satisfaction as equally as the attention you give for productivity and quality,
    .Amazon needs to work on devising a clear road map of promotion with a hard work,
    .Some managers are corrupted and show direct or indirect favouritism. Amazon need to work on to ensure its rules! There is poewer abuse!

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

    Pros

    It’s rewarding and has incentives to working hard. There are also paid holidays in addition to getting time off. They offer extra shifts when other shifts need extra people

    Cons

    The volume of work varies. Some of the management doesn’t communicate well to the associates. Associates aren’t always motivated and don’t work consistently.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pros about Amazon is that you get 3 days off and during peak you can win prizes. They also provide thanksgiving meal for associates .

    Cons

    Amazon has a high turn over rate. Managers are untrustworthy and there is hardly room for growth. You get a new manager every couple months and wont even know it , so when you have a issue and need to talk to your manager you wont even know who to talk to because new managers never introduce themselves to you.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You only have to work at Amazon for 90 days and you can be promoted to the next level if you want. The benefit package is wonderful. There is a lot of time off.

    Cons

    You are on your feet for 10 hours or more so wear great shoes. Short breaks. Moving up can be hard when you're competing with hundreds of internal employees.

    Advice to Management

    I know they want to move senior level management around for experience, but if a great manager comes along, you should leave them in place instead of rotating them out every 6 months or so.

  8. "Flexible Environment"

    The flexibility to work in different areas
    You can take time off

    Cons

    The inexperienced people they put in positions
    Favoritism shown towards friends
    they over work the hard workers and don't hold the people who do not do work accountable.


  9. "Was a good place to work"

    Pros

    Lot of various race and lots of pretty women

    Cons

    Could not get a good response to what method productivity was being judge so no matter how many units I did always was short of production level

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest in your request to get more out of employees

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

    Pros

    Co-workers tend to band together.
    Process Assistants are basic the "Goto" workers in the company.
    Seasonal Overtime Pay helps a lot of people.

    Cons

    Long hours and Standing for a long period of time, and short breaks/lunch breaks.
    Management needs better training with dealing with others. Most of the Management are straight out of College and never been in Management before.
    Pay could be a lot better. People with forklift and special machinery skills should be paid better than starting out as everyone else ($13 hr).
    The constant trying to terminate people for time, instead of offering a better time off package.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management would be:
    1. Listen to your staffs needs.
    2. Don't make a promise you can't keep.
    3. Genuinely try to help those in need.
    4. Treat your staff with respect and they will respect you.
