    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.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I cannot yet compose a review of all the PRO (s) I am certain to experience whilst being an Amazonian. I was one of the first 100 candidates to attend the Amazon Hiring Event in Sept. 2016. Unfortunatly, a few miscommunication challenges, delayed my onboarding. I remained relentless, professionally tenacious...Amazon I my gateway to reinventing myself . For this I know, I will achieve promotions, contribute ideas and finally enjoy going to work everyday

    Cons

    Although I answer this question based upon the plethora of research I've completed. I cannot e any cons
