    I worked at Amazon part-time (Less 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.
    There is no upward mobility.

    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.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less 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. They make it hard for you to go to the bathroom what i mean by that is you can go to the bathroom as much as you have to but it’ll pull your productivity score down and the metrics there are all off. They cater to temps before full time permanent employees. They don’t do right by your UPT and PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Do better

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less 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 (Less 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.

    Advice to Management

    Find new careers

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Competency level of tier I associates. Managemnet has little power to hold associates accountable for not performing job functions up to par.

    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.

    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.
