    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cons

    Pay scale stays pretty stagnant until you reach salary. Hours are long but 3 days off makes up for it.

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

    Pros

    - Better than average benefits (medical, dental, vision, 401k, life insurance, flexible spending accounts, immediate stock bonuses vested after 2 years, etc.)
    - Monthly bonuses (up to 16% of your wages [32% during peak months]), as of 02/2017.
    - Wide variety of fulfillment center jobs, and employees can transfer to any department after 10 weeks of work.
    - Fast-paced work environment makes the time go by quickly.
    - Internal promotions.
    - Full-time employees work four 10-hour shifts per week, thus have three days off.
    - Variety of day, night and split shifts available.
    - 24-hour on site HR, medical and security teams.

    Cons

    - Warehouse atmosphere may be a con to some.
    - Most positions require constant lifting, bending, walking or standing, so may be a con to some (but to others, it's like a free gym workout).
