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

    Pros

    Potential to learn a great deal about the operations of one of the largest companies in the world.
    Some great people to work with, although your mileage may vary.

    Cons

    Unpaid leave and PTO is too restrictive, does not allow for any unforseen circumstances in life that may prevent you from making it to work (kids, wreck, etc).
    Extremely fast paced and exhausting work. You will be expected to hold pace and be productive non-stop and you will be held accountable for every second while on the clock.
    Very limited growth potential. PA and leadership positions within the FC are kept at a minimum, and upper management will stay in their positions forever. In order to climb, transferring locations to other FC's (many times across the country) are more or less a requirement.

    Advice to Management

    Most of my managers were great understanding people.

    I think the issues lie at the top of the foodchain and with operations. Allow the grunt workers who are in the trenches day in and day out to have some leeway with their time off. Burnout and exhaustion are too rampant.

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

    Pros

    BENEFITS!! Benefits start on day one(vs 30-90 days for other companies). Accrued vacation/Paid Time Off, Quarterly Unpaid Time Off, Stocks, performance and attendance bonuses, training opportunities, schedule(I currently work 4 nights a week). Lateral transfers are fairly easy.

    Cons

    Depending on your building, it can be hard to move up. Management can be a pain & VERY incompetent. They care way too much about numbers and sometimes not the well being of associates. Hours can be very long during peak season(think six 12hr shifts). Pay is insanely low for the amount of work that’s required.

    Advice to Management

    Most FC Associates are definitely not being paid livable wages. We can pay bills with the stocks and benefits that’s offered so please don’t take that into account when determining whether the building in question will get a raise.

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

    Pros

    Fixed hours, easy work, weekly pay (if you're seasonal).

    Cons

    The easy work can become repetitive very quickly. The equipment always seems to be broken and with as much money as Amazon has coming in, there's no excuse for it.

    Advice to Management

    Please replace your equipment more often.
