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

    Pros

    Shifts are no longer than 6hr, opportunities to work more shifts, free exercise, VTO options & weekly pay!

    Cons

    Every work place has their favorite by the time you start working so you really have no option of moving up with the company. But it is good money while it last!

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

    Pros

    It's ok as a temporary job.

    Cons

    This company is just begging for a union to come knocking at its door. They'll hire anybody that applies, and fire them just as quickly. Huge turnover rate.

    If you have a job, don't quit to work for amazon. I made the mistake of quitting a decent job, because i heard amazon was a good company to work for. So far, I've been disappointed with it. I've seen countless people fired, including managers.

    I only recommend it as a temporary place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Management are pawns... They're hired to do what the computer tells them to do.
