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

    Pros

    No one bothers you while you do your job. It is easy to come to work, do your job, and go home. The hours were decent; allows time for classes or a second job. I worked the 5:15am to 9:15am shift and loved it. Overall a pretty cool place to work. It can get busy at times, but nothing overwhelming.

    Cons

    Training could be more organized and the communication between management and the employees could be a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more effectively!
