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

    Pros

    Sorting out the pickers orders and preparing the orders for the packers to pack to go for shipment to the customers.

    Cons

    Sometimes pickers pick wrong items and then again we do double orders then.

    Advice to Management

    None really because it's always different problems different times or different employees processing the online orders.

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

    Pros

    benefits, lots of work, tasks are simple

    Cons

    poorly trained management, HIGH production rate of 192 items PER HOUR which is hard to maintain for the whole day and week. Very physical some orders are heavy and you are being watched constantly and short breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Be more approachable and help your staff when you see they are struggling; lower their rate set and set weekly goals, or transfer them to areas better suited for their skill-set. Also, when writing them up comment on the good things they are doing well don't just list all of what they are doing wrong on need to improve on and DO NOT do this around other team member this is embarrassing for the associate.
