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

    Pros

    Full Benefits, More than Minimum wage....Barely. Dress extreamly casual, no real need to for any education plus the ability to count to 100 and read at the 3rd grade level.

    Cons

    The FC associate position is best for the young or physically fit. The only requirement to maintain or advance is the ability to move fast. If you are 40+ and not use to the demand of 10 hours+ on your feet moving fast think twice....then again. Much like field positions before 1865 the better you perform the more is expected.

    Advice to Management

    None, AMZN is the behemouth that ate Retail America, who am I to advise the 100 billion Dollar Man
