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

    Pros

    12.00 is decent not enough for all the work but because alot of entry level people have never made that much. Good selection in breakroom to buy. If you happen to be placed at a station by someone cool it will make the day go by faster but if you're in between two antisocial ppl the day will be quiet and boring.

    Cons

    Ugh. Managers and supervisors don't care about you. Favoritism is very high at this warehouse. If you quiet or the supervisor don't like you then you will never advance. They make you clock out on the 4th floor knowing it takes 5-7 mins to walk down four flight of stairs to the breakroom. Phones don't work AT ALL in the building so you have to go outside to make a call. All the supervisors do is worry about promoting themselves never the crew. You have pallets of boxes after boxes to stow at 250 units per min!! in at a 10 sec rate. No eating on work floor although you are working 3 hrs straight like a lab rat in between 2 short breaks. It's just overwhelming. No Thanks.

    Advice to Management

    Build your team up. Give everyone a chance not just the ones you pick. We are all talented. People feel as if they are insignificant and don't matter. Give out more Amazon bucks. Reward us for good work once in a while.

    Pros

    I can't say i know any pro's as i haven't been given a start date and just keep receiving preformed e-mails and generic scripted answers.
