    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!

    Learn how to treat your Employees and go the back for them when you know the whole situation that is brought about is wrong. Don’t just ignore Just because your trying to get a higher position. Facts...

    Pros

    the pay is good , nice work flow some nice managers

    Cons

    the only way to move up at their FC'S is to kiss butts and know the right people some Area Managers are nice and reward hard work but don't get use to them because they'll get over to another department , they force u to cross train in other departments ie: shipping and picking

    Advice to Management

    keep the good manager that reward they hard workers in their own department you would keep a lot of hard workers in said department ie: shipping
