    Education of transportation and logistics if allowed to advance.

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

    Pros

    They recently increased the pay to $15/hr, which is really the main reason why and I so many others applied. You don't interview at all. Just pass a drug test and background check and you are hired. You are allowed to pick the schedule that works in your favor and the work is crazy easy. The people are all super friendly and helpful as well. I never once felt intimidated or nervous. You also can have any sort of look there, no restrictions on that. I worked in the sortation warehouse where all we did was take the packages off the line and put them in pallets to match their zip codes. Pretty much mastered it on the first day.

    Cons

    You feel like cattle being herded to slaughter. They ship you all in at once and you clock in and mindlessly stack boxes for hours with a really sad excuse for a break in between. I honestly only worked one full day before getting another job offer. I am about to send in my resignation right now. You just feel like a drone working in a windowless warehouse all day. It may be easy, but it is very draining. I also feel like I am back in high school with how some of the coworkers act. If you are looking for an easy, okay paying gig then this is for you, but expect to get burned out FAST.

    Advice to Management

    Management was super nice and helpful. I really liked them tbh. No problems on that end.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazon recognizes the contributions of it's employees, and offers tremendous growth opportunities for Top performers. I have been fortunate to be surrounded by an amazing team and strong leaders, enabling me to promote 3 times in four years, and branch out from an Operations Leadership Track to a Business Intelligence Support Track with no issue. I've also come to know several Tier 1 associates who have also grown substantially in their career to become operations leaders.

    I've also been humbled by Amazon's Think Big Program, and how open leadership is to new ideas. I'm proud to have been part of the launch of Prime Now, and to have submitted the idea of Release Night Delivery which leveraged the Prime Now platform to deliver Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and the newest Harry Potter Book, among others.

    Cons

    Be prepared for short deadlines in some cases, as well as high visibility to your performance. There is no expectation to work long hours, but you have to get your job done, or you will be stagnant in your career.

    Amazon's culture is one of self learning. You are expected to seek out information that may not be handed to you on a silver platter. You control your own growth. If you choose not to seek out new opportunities, it's rare for someone to come find you for them.

    Advice to Management

    Amazon's rating system is designed to identify top and bottom performers. Top performers are rewarded, bottom performers are coached and developed, but the middle is often omitted, and not given enough coaching to become a top performer in some cases. Management should look for new ways to develop the steady middle of the road performers. Also, look to promote more from within, vs. hire from the outside. We tend to hold internal candidates to our high hiring bar vs. our internal promotion bar which allows for growth since we know our internal candidate already fits Amazon's culture.
