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

    Pros

    -its a job
    -after a year(my location at least)choose you're own hours(a plus for students etc.)

    Cons

    _if you're looking fora long term with possible of moving up you best look elsewhere(or maybe a different department).

    Advice to Management

    instead of filling in spots by massive cattle calls to save money,how about rewarding those that actually bust their backs and help improve the company.You might keep more good employees instead of having armies of apathetic, lazy drones.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Too many hours. Want no more than 40 max and moving from Orange County,Ca to Bullhead City, AZ for a more peaceful life

    Cons

    They pay no OT. Work us as long as they need us. Put you at low priority if you don't always do all the extra unpaid overtime. Extremely physical compared to the original opening information.

    Advice to Management

    Things could be minimized with less mistakes if everyone worked more like a team whether you worked for Amazon or the driving companies. More maturity could handle
    80% of the issues and how amazon handles the customer I've heard good and bad. Some refuse to use amazon ever again and some love it! Can please em all. Too pressured before and not using our own cars is bonus.

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.
