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

    Pros

    Your support system is amazing and is always there to help you

    Cons

    You bid on shifts every 3 weeks and if you don't preform well you get a crummy shift

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

    Pros

    VTO, benefits, decent pay, good co workers, HR and other great personnel available when needed.

    Cons

    Consistently on your feet all day if you don't take VTO. A lot of moment with the body (walking, twisting, bending), have to walk through multiple sets of stairs to get to the break room which the breaks and lunches are short (roughly 15-20 mins) (only 2 breaks in a 10+- hr day)

    Advice to Management

    A fully operating cafeteria with cafeteria workers and a full half hour lunch would be great. That way associates don't have to pack food for work everyday.

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

    Pros

    Starting pay was $12 an hour, with benefit enrollment available from day one.

    Cons

    The job can be incredibly boring and repetitive. I count inventory all day long, ten hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people so quickly only to pressure them to take time off day in and day out every week.

    Pros

    Amazon gives you the opportunity to think outside of the box; never bounding you to predetermined decisions. Managers have the freedom to solve problems independently but have a team of managers to turn to when in need of second opinions. No two days are the same which creates excitement and new learnings every day.

    Cons

    Working for one of the most popular countries in the world comes with sacrifice. In Amazon fulfillment you can work 100 hours in a week and nobody will give it a thought. Time management is a necessary skill in order to create work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Stock , paid time off and unpaid time off

    Cons

    Quality and standard should be more looked at closely. I’m a counter and I’ve gotten wrote up because of building issues , meaning I’m told to move a lot , I’m stuck searching for workable equipment. I’m opening up problems due someone else’s errors and I get reprimanded. My supervisor loves to write people up but never ever post rates or even concerned enough to let you know how you are doing . I’ve seen good works termed and bad workers still there .

    Advice to Management

    Train supervisors how to do something else but write people up.

    Pros

    Benefits are great
    Health Ins is BCBS

    Cons

    Pay is not
    Feels like your working in a prison
    Always on you about TOT

    Advice to Management

    Careful with your employees that work on the induction lines. Train your floor managers on restroom break protocol for induct employees. I see a lawsuit in your future.
