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

    Pros

    There are no pros: Most places offer benefits if your full time. Amazon offers benefits but I’ve had better. My co-pay is ridiculous ! The vision option still requires that you pay an exorbitant amount for glasses. I went to get an eye exam and walked out without glasses. (I’ve never experienced this before.)

    Cons

    1. I am a picker. Our pick rate is 380 items in one hour. I have to consistently pick 380 items in one hour. (You do realize that even the Kiva Robots break down. I’m human, it’s not possible for me to pick this much consistently)

    2. Due to their pick rate being so high, my feet ended up experiencing numbness. It was so bad that I asked to go to AMCARE. AMCARE is the glorified nurses office but they have no nurses and the people have no formal training. Amazon, you realize you have Licenses CNAs on staff, right ? You hired a formal NFL player but does he have formal training ? Anyways, I was treated like trash. How ? “You could have come in to “ice” your foot.” I was questioned in an office rather than being allowed to leave to go to the hospital. I ended up needing new shoes with protective insoles. They don’t care about your safety or well-being, they care about their numbers.

    3. Management in fulfillment center is uneducated as in they don’t have degrees or formal training. A lot of management sleeps with employees. Like, this is a low key brothel.

    Advice to Management

    Really evaluate the type of people you are.
