    Pros

    The money that is just about it. The ability to make your own schedule as well, and chatting with Rusty who is cool as heck

    Cons

    Constant ware and tare on your car. Constant construction going on so have to drive more just to make deliveries on time. They will terminate you even tho you have a reason why with police records, hospital records, or etc. I has my car broken into so my phone, cash, and other things was taken. I had no idea that I had to be at work on Sunday which was a new week. I have a police report on Saturday. I received an email from amazon telling me I missed my block and etc. I responded with my reason stating allow me to make it up. They responded telling me it will not reflect on my rating. I went into work that Friday 8hr drive day. I go home get another email telling me I was terminated for missing deliver blocks. So I work and they fire me after telling me I was okay in a prior email. Going to labor board and attorney to seek damages with my police reports.

    Advice to Management

    There are no managers to speak too. Only email.

    Decent warehouse job for the area. Nothing is that difficult and the pay is ok. I got along with co workers easily. overtime is a possibility.

    The job entails a lot of physical movement and exercision. This along with long shifts can take a toll on your body.

    Advice to Management

    More respect could be paid to the employees.

    I worked at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    They will easily hire anyone to work for them. All you have to do is pass a spit drug test and you're in- which says a lot about the staff.

    Cons

    There is nothing good about this company. It's basically crude slave labor; employees are pushed to work past the ethical threshold for manual labor. The harsh working conditions actual weigh in peoples' health- skin conditions and breakouts, breathing problems from fumes and micro materials found in the air, and hair loss. The employees are treated badly by management and HR. They are forced to work through their break time because if they are 1 minute late - which happens if you have to walk the half mile to go to the bathroom- or step away to use the restroom at any given time they are punished - written up. Awful company all and all.

    Advice to Management

    They need to practice and enforce basic human rights and federal working condition laws.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good starting pay and overall compensation package, and the work really isn't that difficult. I started as a tier 1, and by the good graces of having a great facilities boss, I got pulled out of production and put into a facilities track where I was able to progress to Level 4 hourly.

    Cons

    Level 4 hourly is where it stalled. Despite never getting written up in almost 6 years, and despite leading the facilities team in my boss's absence for weeks on end, I was told I didn't have leadership skills to take the next step. That same day, I got suspended, then terminated for a category 1 safety infraction, while doing a job that wasn't mine to do, because no one else was doing it and it needed to be done. That on 2 hours of sleep after getting lambasted by the site leader for something else that wasn't my responsibility, but the responsibility of operations, loss prevention, and the custodial crew. Arrogance and lack of respect are common traits of upper management at Amazon, and especially at LAS2.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your high horses. You put your pants on one leg at a time like the rest of us, and some of us have been doing it a lot longer than you have. A little respect goes a long way. Some of you give no respect whatsoever.
