    Pros

    Flexible Hours and Shifts. As long as you understand the process and procedures it can be a stress free job. Good Team building in the beginning.

    Cons

    Only Part time hours availble at this location. Poor wages $10 an hour but many gave quit because of low wages and no raise after being with company for over 2 years. Just increased wages overall to $15. Turn over is high because of management and not appreciating good employees and lots of favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Make all employees feel important not. just a,select few

    I have been working at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, fun managers, good pay

    Cons

    Too short of a break

    Advice to Management

    I am hoping to be kept after this season because I like the job. I take initiative and do what I can to work as a team so I hope it is being seen.
    Don’t put so much emphasis on scan rates because most only care about making that. Dont base someone’s performance on just that either because I’m one of the people who want to make sure pallets are safe and always get stuck rebuilding it. Watch the lanes more closely. There are too many people that are taking up space because they don’t want to work hard. The premise is teamwork but it is far from that with some of the lanes so I steer clear of them. The ones with attitudes or just scan envelopes need to be weeded out. It’s unfair. I am there to do my job & I work hard. These other people just make it difficult to get the job done when you ask them to push the lane or help me with a heavy box.
