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

    Pros

    Great starting pay and the ability to get raises very quickly. Full training in all areas are offered and if your willing to work hard and sweat everyday for 10 hours a day, 4 days a week, then this is the job for you. The 4 day weeks go by quick, it can be exhausting so proper rest and a healthy lifestyle will help you stay strong within this company. Beat benefits as well once you are a hired on as a full time employee.

    Cons

    After 3 years of working with the company you "cap out" at $15.75, meaning you can no longer make any more money than that as a tier 1 associate. Your expected to want to move up in the company and that is the only way to make a better hourly wage, by advancing into management and operations management positions if there are any openings.

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

    Pros

    Great pay and health insurance

    Cons

    Management is poor, and it doesn't seem like they actually care for their employees even though they say they do.
    If your are planning on making a career out of it. they try getting you fired after you been there for 5 years or longer so they don't have to pay as much in stocks or the raises you earned. they just get new employees so they don't have to pay them as much. Very stressful to work in since you don't know if you will make rate to stay.
