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

    Pros

    Paid time off so milk it.....

    Cons

    Write ups mandatory it seems. It’s all about rates, doesn’t matter if your sick or injured, they’ll still work you to the max. Depressing/oppressive environment where management will harp on you every hour about your rate or something else. They want people to be robots, don’t act or be human, just shut up and make that rate, they even got signs with robot as an acronym, and drill that into your head.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as humans and listen to what they say.

    Pros

    They give you hours with decent pay
    Their benefits are pretty good
    They have snacks and microwaves and TVs and games in the break room

    Cons

    If you get stuck in a role you hate, too bad.
    They don’t accept doctors notes (???)
    10 hour shifts are wayyyy too long if you’re in a boring department like ICQA.

    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
