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

    Pros

    Get to meet some really cool people, if you like to stand nonstop then this is the place for you

    Cons

    Limited to moving up. Sometimes hours flex down because not enough work/volume

    Advice to Management

    More work hours, better managers/shift leads running the place. Give everybody an opportunity to learn and move up.

    I worked at Amazon part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible Time Off Fast Paced Friendly Managers Security Posted Entry Awesome HR -24/7 available Pays above minimum wage to start

    Cons

    Cannot get a straight answer from supervisors if seasonal would convert to “regular” employment HR is not able to provide a definitive response as to the specific requirements. Once employment “assignment” ends you have zero access to any of your personal recorded hours/days worked/policy, etc

    Advice to Management

    Just explain to seasonal/ new hires and anyone else it may or shall impact, that YOUR SHIFT CHOICE selections Do have an extremely vital role in “what the building needs” are...

    I worked at Amazon part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees are given free food and there are activities to do on certain days of the month.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen and it takes a while for procedures to change. Supervision is spread too thin and that lets people slack off. Some supervisors do not do their part in tracking your labor hours by taking you on or off the clock. People are not vetted, they are just pulled off the street for the sort center. Some of those people are good people that work hard, others are not. There was no interview for Amazon's...

    Advice to Management

    Don't just run the business by the numbers, you'll run it into the ground that way. Take care of your people and they'll take care of you. Hire for fit and train for skill, when I was there we got a lot of people who would care only of themselves and not the team. This meant that the work was done in a sloppy way that needed to be redone by someone later. Provide employees with training workshops so they can develop that...

    I have been working at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    Pretty relaxing environment. It's still solid hard work, though. They offer cool perks here and there, especially during the holiday season. Seems like there are potential opportunities for growth also.

    Cons

    With so many employees, often times can feel like just a number. Also, there aren't too many opportunities to connect with other associates.
