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

    Pros

    The health insurance Benefits are amazing, Diverse work place. Hiring process is easy when fulfillment center opens. They hire anybody as long as you can pass the drug and background test.

    Cons

    Long Hours and not enough pay for the work load. Management is unqualified. They are hired right of college and have no experience managing 20 people. No transfer opportunities, they tell you when your hired you can transfer after 6 months if you are in good standing with no write-ups. That is a lie exspecially if you are on the RT shift (reduced time). warehouse job was very physically demanding, you are on feet for a whole 12 hour shift. Breaks are short. Not a good place to advanced your career. They only promote under performing employees. That way the over performing employees stay in that role to help with their numbers and make the rate, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect. Completely do away with on-site HR they are useless and unhelpful.

    Pros

    Four day work week is the BEST!

    Cons

    The pay could be better seriously working for 10 hours a day for 12 an hour is really a downside for this company 15 an hour would be appropriate everyday we are getting push to move faster and the leadership is SOO unappreciated while you’re busting your butt to get the CPTS out on time the team work SUCKS Deep down I know amazon can do better by their employees .. first off I want to say I was super excited to work for Amazon and on day 1 we was told a lot of things about our benefits, pto, vto, vet and much more but one thing that stood out was getting a .50 cent rise ever 6 months once I reached my first 6 months the rise was on .25 cent I DONT KNOW... 🤷🏽‍♀️ You could image how many people was at hr. Trying to figure out what happen to the other .25 cent so now I’m at 12.25

    Advice to Management

    You see how hard we work at Amazon I know I’m not the one feeling this way we deserve to be paid more for what we do everyday we’re being pushed

    Pros

    Easy job task and if you try something new they don't hold it against you if you mess up.

    Cons

    The points system is really strict. Want to know if and how u can restore my 6 points. Some wasn't completely my fault.

    Advice to Management

    Give chances to earn your points that were deducted due to leaving a little early and arriving under 10 minutes late. Something's are beyond our control.
