    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and great benefits for having no previous work experience

    Cons

    Other employees tend to bring down the moral as well as a couple of the managers that are new/know nothing about processes.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees with respect.

    I have been working at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    -Just about every job here can be learned in a day
    - They do give extra pay for overnight workers
    -They actually weed out the lazy workers as best they can
    - Make it easy to change shifts when available
    -Sometimes they give gift cards for working longer hours
    -My current managers do the best they can to ensure the safety of employees in every form

    Cons

    - NO AIR CONDITIONING IN DLV1!!!!( And we are talking 90 -110+ degree weather)
    - Managers unfortunately play favoritism ( certain people can stay for as many hours as they like)
    - No full time positions ( instead they just create more part time shifts and hire more people)
    - Not many REAL benefits
    - Most equipment work for a day and is broken for like a month afterwards
    - Managers hardly let others do a different job without begging for it
    - HR doesn't really exist ( we have to talk to them through someone and majority of us never meet an actual HR person)
    - Takes way too long for them to train others in other fields
    - Mostly dead end job ( opportunities do happen but not often , at least at DLV1)

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to really push for more care at our division instead of sucking up to them to make it look like everything is okay. We could us SO MUCH improvement at this facility that could make everyone happier to be here. As it stands now, this is the most bittersweet job I have ever worked at so far.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The benefits happen to be the only positive here and NOT worth it

    Cons

    NO practical training
    No support
    80 hour work weeks
    No work life balance
    No coaching
    Place is like a cult
    Managers are mistreated
    Associates can lie and HR believes them without ever checking facts
    Worst place I have ever worked

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your leaders and realize employees don't always tell the truth. Train leaders in the business before throwing them to the blood and life sucking wolves

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

    Pros

    - Growth potential unlimited; I feel well compensated
    - Amazon hires great people so you have competent managers as peers, up, and down
    - The interview process is exaxtly as advertised. Its not easy but no mind gales and no surprises.

    Cons

    -If you aren't prepared to work hard, this is probably not the place for you
    -If you were entitled in your previous job with parking spaces and corner offices, Amazon is not your company. We don't have them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing hard
