    Pros

    I have been a full associate at the Edison nj for 9months now. The mangers and my coworkers have been great. Work is very tedious and long but you get used to it. The pay is decent and health benefits at $81 a month for full coverage is great. Compared to $700 on my own. The job is what you make of it . As long you make your rate your good

    Cons

    Breaks are short, mangers constantly reminding your of your rates every hour,

    Advice to Management

    Longer breaks for the 12hr shifts

    Pros

    Great benefits from day one, decent level of time off available, plenty of opportunities to move up, open to training you wherever your interests lie, attentive managers, as long as you work hard you will reap the benefits.

    Cons

    Can be unpredictable volume- wise but that's as to be expected with this industry as it is based on customer demands

    Advice to Management

    The sort center I work for does an amazing job!

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, perks, competitive environment and career progression.

    Cons

    Management is all about numbers and doesn't really care about your well-being.
    HR, New Hire Orientation and Training were unorganized.
    Employees who've been with the company for 3 weeks will train you.
    Work-life balance who? 3 x 12 or 4 x 10 plus mandatory OT where you have to use your time if you don't want to work that day.
    A hostile work environment where people are cussing and fussing all the time!
    I recently asked for schedule accommodation or schedule shift but they told me that I have to wait until January after the peak season. I resigned and they decided to let me go than work a schedule that would be mutually beneficial.
    I hope the company would treat employees as HUMANS than NUMBERS and I hope these practices will be exploited soon.

    My perspective of Amazon as a customer and as a former employee entirely change after this experience.

    Advice to Management

    Goodluck!
