    I worked at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    Just making a little (emphasis) money on the side.

    Cons

    Boring, monotonous work with no chance of advancement. Walking or standing for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Longer breaks and better pay instead of bringing in and letting go of people like cattle.

    Pros

    The benefits were nice. 4 day workweek was great. Uh....there was free coffee in the breakroom? Excellent advancement opportunities for young people with a college degree.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The pay vs job responsibility was so unbalanced it often induced rage among my peers. At any job, you're given goals and expectations - but at Amazon you're expected to succeed with zero resources. Seriously, you can try to justify overtime all you want - you aren't getting any help. Unprofessional, callous managers that don't care about employee development...I could go on. As someone with leadership experience in a warehouse setting, I'm comfortable saying that the building I worked at was a prime example of how not to run an operation.

    Advice to Management

    Look before you leap. Many of my issues stem from an obvious lack of planning during the setup phase. Hire experienced leaders - a college degree means nothing if a candidate is a true greenhorn. Do things to help employee morale that don't involve throwing the phrase "customer obsession" around in a cavalier manner.
