    Pros

    Great chances for promotions. The company is growing fast year after year. You can get a promotion every year. You work hard but play hard as well. They take good care of each other.

    Cons

    Like most retail jobs the hours can be very long. Especially during the holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing now. The atmosphere is good and the opportunity is great. Remember to keep it fun across the table. Work life balance should always be considered.

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

    Pros

    Full time job with benefits the rate of pay was ok. Co workers are very friendly for the most part

    Cons

    They treat you like you're teenagers. I've never had a job that had so many "system issues" it was so annoying working there for that reason alone. There would be "mandatory" overtime but no work. Stupid. Just stupid

    Advice to Management

    Someone who's certified to operate a machine shouldn't be paid the same as someone wrapping a pallet.

    Great oppurtunity for growth; Great benefit package; 24 hour access via internet to EHR service; 4 day work week; exceptional work enviroment.

    Cons

    Long hours and continuos standing on your feet; short breaks and lunch; breakroom and bathroom location depending on your assigned area.

    I would like to increase the 15 minute breaks during non peak time to 20 minutes and have a 45 minute lunch.
