    Pros

    Anyone can apply and receive employment easily.

    Cons

    Dust build up from cardboard items and warehouse environment. Must work for company a long time to earn raises and perks. Company culture not put into action.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when we are asked for our opinions. I have voiced my concern for item sent to customers. No raises after other big corporations across country that gave employees raises or crumbs from result of tax reform.

  3. "Delivery"

    I worked at Amazon as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. To be able to work when is convenient was the main incentive.

    Cons

    Low pay. Even though you take a photo of the package, delivered and showing the correct address, if the customer decides to report the package as not delivered, Amazon penalizes the deliver driver by marking the package as "NOT DELIVERED". The photo is not used in any sort of way for evidence.
    If you return it to the distribution center it is marked against you also. They want you to deliver the packages to the doors and "HOPE" no-one steals them. Either way the delivery drive is the scape goat if anything goes wrong.
    Low pay, high overhead, most of the time a 4 hour block will take you 6-8 hours to complete. You still only get paid for the 4 hours. Most areas of delivery are 30 minutes away from the distribution center, if you have to return and packages its another 30 minutes drive back and those are counted against you also. Driver pays for personal vehicle, maintenance, fuel, phone for app, data, wait times, and any mistakes made by anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Amazon has gotten greedy and needs to pay its fair share back to the employees that make the company what it is. Jeffrey Bezos was just reported as the richest man on the PLANET and yet he pays employees far less than a fair wage.

    Pros

    Huge company that sells everything, financially stable.

    Cons

    My experience here was awful. I tried to get a new position with the company and the HR dept. worked against me at every step. It’s impossible to get a new job here once you are hired. I’m disappointed that Jeff Bezos is overseeing such a terrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your hard working employees at every level

    Pros

    Dental for blue badge and Amazon discount. Human resources are professional, available but ultimately serve Managment.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive for warehouse work in Metro Denver. Amazon Fresh is even worse.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers a living wage and maybe you wouldn't have to spend so much on marketing the positions.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, and freedom to handle schedule is great. Easy to connect with more experienced co-workers / leaders. Flexible career paths + the ability to tailor career plans to personal interests / desires. Once onboard with Amazon, there are plenty of opportunities make internal moves / work on exciting projects

    Cons

    Onboarding with such a large company is time consuming / can be stressful. Designing / implementing projects that depend on other team's work can be difficult

    Advice to Management

    For teams that own company wide tools; push them to support / maintain project documentation.

    Provide ways to make remote office locations feel more connected to HQ

    Pros

    Overtime Pay, Benefits, Fun Co Workers

    Cons

    Overworked, uncompensated, minimal training, high disregard for personal life

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to live. If you give them a peak season, let them work their peak season. Dont force them to bleed into another department's peak season because MANAGEMENT fired over half their emoloyees for nonsensical reasons, and then not even train them to fill those positions and have the same expectations. Its absurd, mentally and physically draining and disorderly.
