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

    Pros

    Good At Making You Feel As If The Job IS Secure When In Truth It Is Not

    Cons

    Not A Secure Job With Career Advancement & Wrongful Termination/Write Ups For Low Productivity Which Amazon Is At Fault For (i.e. Bad Freight, Packed Pods, Bad Mixture Of Products)

    Advice to Management

    Don't Use People & Don't Wrongfully Terminate Or Write Someone Up For Something Which Is Clearly Related To Amazon Not The Employee Which Effects Their Rates & Productivity
