    I worked at Amazon part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are pretty decent

    Cons

    Every day things get harder on your body, and management expects more and more out of you. Blames the workers when the shift is understaffed. Lots of lies from management to get you to work harder eg "we're almost done, tonight is gonna be light" when the opposite is true. Breaks are taken away for no reason, rules are constantly changing. Doesn't value the employees. You feel trapped because of the decent pay

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure they'll just replace everyone with robots anyway

    Management is the problem The managers have favorites The managers can dictate whether you are doing the same job everyday The managers have too much power The managers if they do not like you can find ways to get rid of you or make you quit

    Pros

    If you don't want to sit around this position. Warehouse Associate at Amazon is it

    While they do things to show there "Fun" It felt forced and in honest they grind you to the bone with high job turnover. Where I was They went through 5 managers in 18 months. Not good at all.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is heavily needed in management then more then 3 months.

    Cons

    Job is very high paced and very demanding which may lead to managers freaking out and quitting; understandable but one should push themselves to take on this huge challenge instead of running from it. Depending on how well your site runs you should be regularly NOT doing overtime (except for 1 week and 1 month in a year (prime day, Peak season)). Expect 40-45 hour work weeks with up to 60 hours during peak and prime....
