    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Leadership Principles are used in developing employees who excel at their job. Managers support upward and lateral mobility as well as encouraging employees to do their best!!! Never experienced anything like it, positive experience.

    Cons

    Really no cons with my experience, just keep in mind that you have to be very flexible. Company is an incredible opportunity if you are flexible and motivated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep us the good work.

    Former Employee - Sorter in Nashville, TN
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good for the work. Most people will help you if you are visibly struggling. Most of the supervisors were friendly. There is always overtime opportunities and sometimes chances to leave early if you want. They often have prize giveaways and incentives.

    Cons

    - Working in there with no music feels like absolute DEATH. -The floor feels awful on your feet - get comfy shoes. -The break starts from the moment you punch out, and you spend half of the quick breaking walking to and from your station. Overall, the job is mentally draining for a person that hates silence (except for Machines 247), and doesn't like working independently for too long.

  3. "Great seasonal job!"

      Didn't need a resume, didn't have to interview, great seasonal job!

      Cons

      It takes forever for your body & especially your feet to get used to the job.

        I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Amazon doesn't live up to the hype that they are slave driving maniacs. They do not change their mind every other day or week about what is important. They operate off of a very solid foundation. Yes they are dynamic and change quickly and expect you to be part of the solution, but it is not chaos and the senior leaders are top notch in every respect. Most people I see that do not like Amazon or the culture don't...

        Cons

        Amazon is very focused on a positive associate experience and has a low level of accountability for the work force. This is not always bad but it presents certain challenges in achieving success

        Advice to Management

        Compared to other companies I have worked for and know of, this is the absolute best run company. Keep the day 1 mind set!

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Amazon part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Get paid to become more physically fit; AMZL managers, for the most part, at least seemed to appreciate employees as there were numerous pizza and treat opportunities, at least on the shifts I worked on; can pick shifts that work best for you.

        Cons

        Can be very physically demanding, especially for people not used to working in a warehouse environment; the people working in HR seem to have more power than even the managers you work with day to day, and most of them are just not that friendly to the warehouse employees. There was really only a couple that treated people consistently with some respect, the majority were just unnecessarily rude. Though AMZL was not evaluating...

        Advice to Management

        Please put the "human" back in your human resources department by hiring people who actually like serving customers (i.e., the warehouse employees). Be more up front with seasonal people about the whole blue badge conversion and what that means right from the beginning. Don't send them emails right after Christmas telling them they will soon be terminated and placed into a non-existent alumni program that will "fast-track"...

        I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        My number one reason for working for Amazon is the benefits. Not just the killer health, vision, and dental. Oh, no, no no no. The stocks, the 401K, the paid time off, the vacation time, all the employee resources, the career and personal development. Not to mention the amazing people you're going to meet along the way. Plus you get to be a part of a company that does so much for technological development, as well as...

        Cons

        I don't see this as a con, but it's something I warn people about when they first come in- you will be expected to work, and sometimes really hard. FC jobs can be very physical and it's a dog eat dog world.

        Advice to Management

        Associates know when you're new. Listen to them. And wear comfortable shoes. :)

        I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        I get to work with the smartest people on the planet which can only serve to help me better myself. I am constantly learning everyday! This is like no other company in the world, we always start with the customer and work backwards. I am constantly amazed when given a choice, Amazon seems to always make the right long term decision that favors customers and employees vs making the typical business decision geared toward...

        Cons

        This company is not for everyone, there is a very high bar that must be met and unless you are ready to work hard, have fun and make history everyday you could get burned out quickly

        Advice to Management

        Remember it is always Day 1, don't change. We cannot afford to become a Day 2 company....
