    I have been working at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    You get tiny a paycheck.
    Sort of a fixed schedule. They may change it (and they will) at any point.

    Cons

    DMI2 is overstaffed of sortation associates, so much that they are going to send you home early frequently, not completing your minimum 20hrs/week.
    Extra hours / over-time? forget it!

    They will not show you how you use their equipment, you have to figure it out yourself. You would expect at least to shadow someone.

    Their attendance point system is useless, you will get hit with points against you even if they “requested a ticket”.

    Not enough parking.

    High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people if you don't need them!
    Shut down the place, it’s a complete mess. You should know better Amazon..

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

    Pros

    I honestly have no pros about this job, you get paid basically nothing and work your butt off 11 hour shifts.

    Cons

    Little pay, a lot of work and stress. Been working here 2 years and my pay went down going part time to full time. No night shift differentials nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Give a higher pay to your associates!! You are one of the biggest companies in the world!

    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.
