    Pros

    Good medical insurance, Vacation and Paid time off from Permanent Hire Day 1, 3 days off a week

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, Hard to meet quotas if you do everything the right way, managers are often hired straight out of collage with little to no work experience

    Advice to Management

    clean out the water coolers, clean the employee bathrooms, stop hiring people to administrative and managerial positions straight out of collage with zero work experience

    Pros

    a lot of walking was involved, lost a lot of weight but if you were sick it was horrible.

    Cons

    the facility was huge, so you would see different people all the time, not ones you knew.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, amazing benefits, respectful leaders, and a decent pay rate.

    Cons

    A little too strict on rules, tiring indirect jobs but still receive the same pay as those in direct jobs for each department, and most equipments are breaking down or can no longer function properly.

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

    Pros

    The insurance is great. PTO and Vacation time is good.

    Cons

    The rate for associates is very high. They give written action even when you make 90 percent rate. It is crazy. They keep raising the rate also. When you have a written action you cannot change jobs either. There is not any opportunity for advancement unless you have a degree. I am very disappointed with Amazon.

    Advice to Management

    Stop raising the rates. Make the the rates for large items lower than for small. We continue to bring this up in the All Hands meetings and it is not addressed as it should be. The equipment needs to be repaired on pick carts. This is a billion dollar company and the equipment is in disrepair.
