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

    Pros

    Employee benefits and fairly set market value pay. @15.75$ an hour for all the walking

    Non stop running around for 10:30 hours a day with bossy team leads threatening that I might lose the job. Like Everyday was my last

    Advice to Management

    Give employees freedom to use washrooms. Not like it's going to make a difference.
