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

    Pros

    Great pay for entry level manager.
    Ability to start projects that influence your department/team or facility.
    Open door policy with top management means that managers are always in check.
    Comprehensive daily grading system for all managers that get rated by their direct reports which ensures that all managers are always trying to improve and learn.
    Able to drive meaningful results.
    Management really does try improving the experience for area managers.

    Cons

    Job is very high paced and very demanding which may lead to managers freaking out and quitting; understandable but one should push themselves to take on this huge challenge instead of running from it.

    Depending on how well your site runs you should be regularly NOT doing overtime (except for 1 week and 1 month in a year (prime day, Peak season)). Expect 40-45 hour work weeks with up to 60 hours during peak and prime. This will be different for launch buildings

    Advice to Management

    Keep on maintaining the mindset that you are not the perfect employer, keep on trying to improve, this will lead to bettering the experiences for all of your new hires.

    Pros

    Good pay, fair and nice supervisors

    Cons

    Just found out unless I get ssi or assistance or fall into one of there tax credit areas I won’t be hired on permanently. So basically reverse discrimination. I was wondering why a lot of employers ask those questions , go figure.

    Advice to Management

    Hire based on good work ethic not based on tax credits. Amazon is about the bottom dollar,, nothing else. Does not value all employees , only ones that get them tax credits.

    Pros

    Amazon customers are absolutely amazing!

    Cons

    There is no pay raise for cross training into a different department. I have worked for 2 other very large companies and was considered a very valuable employee since I was able to quickly be moved around where I was needed. Not at Amazon! I trained in 5 different departments and still made $10.00 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what their worth!
