    Advice to Management

    Stop doing wright ups fro rates.. tot is to make sure we are working.. we can't control wheather we get big or small items for rate

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

    Pros

    Tons of locations to transfer to around the world.
    Full benefits on your first day of employment.
    Relaxed dress code

    Cons

    The pay for tier 3 is too low. They only pay their supervisor $2 more than the associates that they supervisor. Supervisors run the shifts and don’t get paid fairly for the responsibility that they have. Tier 3 pay is to close to tier 1 pay and to far away from tier 4 pay. Amazon should really look into increasing the pay rate for their tier 3 position. This is the reason amazon has a high turn over rate , they don’t pay their staff in critical roles enough to deal with task and stress they have to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Have a bigger gap between tier 1 and tier 3 pay. Your best tier 1 associates don’t want to be tier 3 because the pay difference isn’t worth the stress

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

    Pros

    Schedule is fixed. You get to work overtime frequently. Awesome benefits, nice brand new FC to work in. Amazon, supplies you with everything you need to do a first class job.

    Cons

    They can take a long time to fill job openings.

    Advice to Management

    Let the Managers on site fill the job openings. HR in Arizona takes forever to give our FC quality candidates to interview.
