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

    Pros

    When I find one I will let you know.

    Cons

    In 2.5 years I have been discriminated against, sexually harassed, over worked and under paid. If these are qualities you are seeking, You have come to the right place!

    Advice to Management

    Zero tolerance of sexual harassment should mean ZERO tolerance. Not- lets sweep it under the rug and hope you do not go through this again.
    Clearly everyone promoted in the Florida region was a white male; regardless of work ethic/ education/ experience/ or leadership skills. I certainly hope things get better with this organization.

    Pros

    Pay
    Benefits
    Fixed work schedule (4 days in 3 days out)
    overtime pay

    Cons

    expected to work overtime, always.
    always replaceable, they make sure you know.
    no standards and responsibility boundaries, upper management will throw blame down to preserve their place.

    Advice to Management

    Operations Manager should take on the administrative role fully so that Area Manager can focus on over seeing the operations by doing so it lets assistant managers be more tactical and engage with the associates while they work along with giving them time to develop new ideas to better the processes in place. If upper management does come to warehouse and help it should be done so with a helping hand and not notepad to point out everything they did.

    I worked at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice but that's it.

    Cons

    Oh where to begin...
    So first let's start off with the fact that they changed my job code without my consent to one that dropped me from $15/hr Full-Time to $10/hr Part-Time before I even started there.

    I had repeatedly informed the supervisor of this, & hoped for some sort of resolution but nothing happened.

    I called HR, & they said speak to my supervisor even though I had already said that it was not fruitful after MANY attempts to do so.

    So I filed a complaint with an Amazon Employee Processing Centre, & that lead from my job code being changed from a specific location to "bouncer"...

    I was then bounced around from location to location working various shifts for various hours at constant pay $10/hr for 8 weeks...

    After my first week of bouncing around I noticed I had not received my hard-earned paycheck, & I called the location I had worked at the day before to ask why this was so...

    They told me to contact HR, so I did.

    I was told that because I had not been associated with a specific location my check could not be processed or sent anywhere to receive my payment, & when I mentioned that I had direct deposit I was told that even though I had direct deposit the "check" needed to be associated with an exact location...

    After about 45mins of getting fed the same [explicitive], I hung up, & went back to the Employee Processing Centre in hopes that I might receive my "check" but rather, I was told that I will receive my check once there I've been situated in a specific location, & had my status changed from "bouncing" to a job code which should only take about 2 weeks according to the associate.

    I had been left with the "bouncing" status for the 8 weeks of employment I had experienced with Amazon, & as a result had not received payment as well.

    My lack of income lead me to search for another job to supplement my lack of financial closure all the while still retaining employment with Amazon in hopes that I might finally see my well-deserved "check".

    Eventually I was called in for a meeting in hotel conference room along with 20-30 other employees to be told we were fired, upon hearing this news I shot up, & asked for my "check", & was told that because I was not an associate of Amazon anymore I would not be receiving one.

    When I elaborated, & requested my "check" for the past 8 weeks of my service of which I had not received, the associates repeated themselves stating that I was no longer an associate, & would not receive a check.

    I then asked why I was being fired, & I did not receive an answer.

    When I asked for severance papers, I was denied them.

    When I asked for the information of the associates who had fired me, they adamantly refused.

    After a heated argument, I left with their business cards (which I had to take from their clips).

    Amazon, expect a lawsuit. If this is how you treat your employees, then this company is the most unconscionable, & deplorable outfit I've ever had the absolute displeasure of working with.

    Advice to Management

    Figure it out for yourselves after you read this.

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

    Pros

    Set schedule. Possibility to work overtime when it is offered. Given time off (even though it is only unpaid time off.)

    Cons

    Too much favoritism in the facility based off who is well known by management. No pay raise for any of the employees. As an Ambassador I am given more responsibility to be in charge of inbound or have more work done, but no raise is given. Many of the individuals employed at the facility put forth no effort in their work. Pallets are constantly falling over and needing to be fixed. Management never does anything about employees who are talking and not getting any work done. Overall it is a joke working at an Amazon warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce consequences for employees who want to just stand around and talk for four hours and not get any work done. Give a raise to the employees who step up to become ambassadors. Not fair to take in more responsibility with no pay raise.
