    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of locations to transfer to around the world.
    Full benefits on your first day of employment.
    Relaxed dress code

    Cons

    The pay for tier 3 is too low. They only pay their supervisor $2 more than the associates that they supervisor. Supervisors run the shifts and don’t get paid fairly for the responsibility that they have. Tier 3 pay is to close to tier 1 pay and to far away from tier 4 pay. Amazon should really look into increasing the pay rate for their tier 3 position. This is the reason amazon has a high turn over rate , they don’t pay their staff in critical roles enough to deal with task and stress they have to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Have a bigger gap between tier 1 and tier 3 pay. Your best tier 1 associates don’t want to be tier 3 because the pay difference isn’t worth the stress

    Pros

    Schedule is fixed. You get to work overtime frequently. Awesome benefits, nice brand new FC to work in. Amazon, supplies you with everything you need to do a first class job.

    Cons

    They can take a long time to fill job openings.

    Advice to Management

    Let the Managers on site fill the job openings. HR in Arizona takes forever to give our FC quality candidates to interview.

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

    Pros

    Amazon provides so many opportunities for growth and development. It is a constantly evolving company and if you can learn, evolve, and adapt to change, you will do very well here!

    Cons

    Because Amazon is growing so fast, I had a shortened training time and didn't have the best experience, however, in the long run, having to jump in and learn as I went, made me stronger and better at my job!

    Advice to Management

    Always explain the "whys" behind associate's tasks and responsibilities. If we don't know why we are doing something, it is hard to put the puzzle pieces together.
