    Current Employee - DSP Driver in Charlotte, NC

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salaried day, regardless of how early you end a day. Elgiblw for overtime.

    Cons

    Risk of DSP routes slashed, thus impacting driver schedules... thus making it harder for people to pay bills. Benefits are a joke too.

    Advice to Management

    When interviewing be candid with everything. Do not sell a lie to motivated people, to then slash everyone’s days due to route cut backs... be up front with the risks of working for a 2.0 DSP.

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

    Pros

    Great dental & vision plans After 30 days you get 5 days off every 3 months to use whenever you want, they stack up to 20 days. Short shifts Some of the managers or PAs are fine.

    Cons

    Safety is something they say is a concern, but really isn't. PAs are never on the same page. Pays less than competitors. Can't request time off, once you're out of hours even if it's planned in advance, you're fired. Can't get time off for family medical emergencies. When I first started, there was always free food and snacks to congratulate us for doing well, after the newest manager took over, this stopped....

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. Listen to your employees. This job is very strenuous and I think management is clueless as to what the employees go through.

  5. Bias

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

    Pros

    You only have 1 thing to do the only rule is to get it done, that’s what i like about it you didn’t have 10 other tasks to get done just 1. I also loved that you didn’t have to speak if you didn’t want to just go there and work and leave. Break room was nice

    Cons

    Favoritism environment. Couldn’t move up in the work force unless you kissed butt. If you get written up in the department that you work in you can’t switch to another for afew months and that doesn’t make sence to me; if I’m struggling in an area or if there’s conflict between you and the manager/lead of a department they should get you out of that environment so you can excel somewhere else not keep you there to fail....

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    relatively easy work, raffles during holidays

    Cons

    management doesn't care if you have previous experience, abysmal pay for warehouse work, cliquish high school environment, make it seem like you have a lot of opportunities but really you're just a cog in the machine.

    Advice to Management

    take into account when someone has experience in a certain field or with operation of certain equipment as opposed to training new hires with no experience while the experienced individuals stand at a conveyor belt scanning boxes

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

    Pros

    I liked how they provided a shuttle service for workers that didn’t have reliable transportation

    Cons

    Management has little to no experience, hiring kids that don’t have a degree in management or background in management. Also, trying to meet impossible rates.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits...they start on day 1. Fast paced environment, fun and energetic.

      Former Employee - Problem Solver in Charlotte, NC

      I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Free to wear whatever made you comfortable, Fast pace, nice environment, Incentives

      Cons

      Management has the power to create disciplinary acts if they "don't like you". If you are favored then a lot of things would be over looked.

    • Nice job, but very zombie-like

      I worked at Amazon part-time

      Pros

      Very fast paced and really great pay for unskilled labor. No interviews, just a general meeting with a recruiter. Lots of available shifts and overtime is almost guaranteed.

      Cons

      They take in anyone, meaning you'll be working with a lot of lazy people and in turn become one of them once you realize your hard work is overlooked.
