    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.

    Pros

    Good health benefits , easy to leave early

    Cons

    Been working at Amazon since Nov. All the mgrs. care about is quota they will write you up if you can't meet th.e quota no matter how hard you work. They say safety is #1 that's a lie. Been promised for the last 2 months or so to be trained for different position in depth but keep getting running around and you get PTO that stops accumulatingafter 5 months they don't take in consideration for working 60hrs week during peak which is mandatory overtime

    Advice to Management

    To keep good workers start treating them like people not robots not everyone can hit those STUPID QUOTAS

    Pros

    You can meet some very interesting people.
    Good potential for strength building in correct positions.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Endless opportunities in all sorts of fields. Rapidly growing company with no signs of slowing down. Taking over the world.

    Cons

    Depending on what site you work at, management can be fickle. Certain sites, managers really care about your growth, other sites will leave you in the dust the moment they can. Unfortunately, I was at the latter.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell people they have all the potential in the world and not develop them into that potential.

    Advice to Management

    Have a program to train employees computer skills so they can advance in the company.
