    Former Employee - Delivery Driver in Hazel Park, MI

    I worked at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Schedule. The typical schedule was 10-12 hours a day, and 3-4 days a week.

    Cons

    Fast-paced. Constant dispatch calls. Very hard on the knees and ankles jumping on and off the truck. The older you are, the harder it is on your body.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits that start the first day. You get good time off hours that can be used without your supervisors approval.

    Cons

    The work is very tedious and exhausting. No electronics are allowed on the floor there's also no music played. They expect you to be a human robot for 10 hours and only pay $15. Meanwhile this is a multi-billion dollar company. They dont want you to sit down in your station or rest even when the machine is down. My body aches so bad I dont feel like signing up for extra hours. Use your UPT first they try to take it...

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, starts at $16.00 which is hard to find anywhere without experience in most places. Get paid weekly

    Cons

    Favoritism is big here, if your not cool with management then you will NOT move on from the driver position nobody knows anything, most managers haven't even been managers longer than 5 months most people have horrible attitude which is due to the job being easy to get hired Don't stay here, the first month you will love it but after that, the managers start showing their true colors one manager seems like he doesn't...

    Advice to Management

    Talk to each one of your drivers to get to know your works, don't single out one guy who hids and tells management everything. I use to love working here but I understand why people quit

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They pay at least $15/hour

    Cons

    They have no respect for work/life balance. They expect workers to work overtime and through lunch breaks. They only care about delivering packages on time. Many of my coworkers have developed significant injuries while working. Yet our insurance doesnt kick in for 90 days, and it doesnt cover the first $1500 of costs. I honestly think they want robots, not humans. That is why they are working so hard on drone delivery....

    Advice to Management

    Respect work/life balance. Don't reprimand or punish workers for wanting to go home to their families when their scheduled shift ends.

    I worked at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    The pay was good and lots of overtime.

    Cons

    The supervisor never tells you how many boxes you have to pack in a couple of hours. Also the ambassadors just walk around not doing the work on a computer everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Better training for employees coming in.
