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

    Pros

    I could work overtime if I wanted to. I was off three days a week. You get one big break and two small breaks.

    Cons

    I hated just being a number and a log in name. I didn't like walking for 10 hours straight. If I had to run use the restroom they were right on me asking why I was time off task for that amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if the management knew us other than by a number or a log in name and if we are struggling in an area then find out what they can do to help.

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

    Pros

    - Great benefits, including dental and vision, at a reasonable price.
    - Plenty of opportunity for voluntary time off during the slower months.
    - Literally ANYONE can get a job here.

    Cons

    - Back-breaking work weeks during Peak Season (November-December) and in the lead-up to Prime week (June/July).
    - Little opportunity for advancement.
    - While some coworkers are decent people, the vast majority of Amazon's workforce is comprised of the absolute dregs of society. Expect to interact with junkies and criminals on a daily basis.
    - Ridiculous rules that have no bearing on job performance.
    - Complete lack of empathy from middle management.
    - Bait and switch "incentives" like the Variable Compensation Program that rarely deliver what recruiters advertise.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The medical benefits and stock that you receive after your initial two years are the only good things about this job.

    Cons

    You have to make rate and quality every week no matter the barriers. This job his hard on your body.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more offer incentive pay.

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

    Pros

    Ive dune mult jobs in the amazon warehouse. Its okay pay and paid vacation/time off

    Cons

    Rate is stupid when work is slow they should lower rate. Alot of hard workers have been fired over stupid rate! Also dont care for you or family.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the rate crap its really stupid! And stop doing dumb things like example easter egg hunt for easter but yet when people who actually have children try to include them like yall do for Halloween and not just the workers egg hunt!
