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

    Great family owned operation. Wonderful staff.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay for part time work
    Managers put forth effort

    Cons

    HR unwilling to change your schedule even months into the job
    HR disconnected with management on the floor
    10 minute breaks
    Not enough parking spaces and the alternate parking lot is over a mile away(which you will be punished for when it causes you to be late)
    Grunt work

    Advice to Management

    MCI5 HR needs to improve. Please either provide enough parking spaces for your workers or don't punish them when it causes them to be late. One shuttle bus that doesn't have designated pick up/drop off times to a location over a mile away isn't enough.

    Pros

    Easy work and very flexible schedule. Not bad pay either.

    Advice to Management

    Show a little more interest in what your employees are good at and let them do those jobs instead of just grouping everyone together.
