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

    Pros

    Get to work alone
    Good pay
    Good Benefits
    Management is at least kind

    Cons

    Very unorganized facility
    Inexperienced and incompetent management
    Poor on the the road support team
    Complete lack of a dispatch team
    Expect you to move at the speed of light and obey road laws at the same time
    Hardly enough time to complete entire route, take all breaks, and get home on time

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to prepare for the holiday season 2019 cause you all messed up this year. When you open up a new delivery facility, bring in experienced workers that can actually answer simple questions, and make sure you have a parking lot capable of supporting the amount of drivers you hire, rather than having them loading their trucks in the street right next to busy traffic. The load up process every morning is an absolute nightmare and I'm not surprised at the amount of drivers quitting by the week. Despite the pay hike, no one is going to put up with poor working conditions.

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

    Pros

    If you meet standard requirements, show some initiative and an eagerness to learn you will be provided the tools to succeed within the company. After 30 plus years in other fields that never required punching a clock, I was hesitant to begin a new career as an associate in the fulfillment center at Amazon. It has been an incredible 4 months in which I've learned 5-6 different specialties within the FC. I don't know from one shift to the next what I will be assigned to do. It's never boring and the majority of my associates work hard. While having several specialties means nothing in terms of pay, It does make me a more valued employee if ever there need to be lay-offs. And it brings me closer to an advance to the next pay tier.

    Cons

    As my Title states, There's the AMAZON in Seattle with free lunch, an arborium lobby, dogs at work etc...Then there's the AMAZON that I know with things like half working scanners and work areas held together by packing tape. We could use a little more Seattle in New Jersey.

    Advice to Management

    We walk out through a metal detector to prevent theft. But anyone with an employee badge can walk right onto the main floor with any weapon they want because there are no metal detectors on the way in. One could perceive that they value the merchandise more than the employees. Make us feel safer.

    Pros

    15hrly. Good benefits. Indoors. Breakroom has food.

    Cons

    Inadequate training. Very poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being dismissive of your employees when they give feedback about their job performance. Training period should be at least 3 wks, not a day and a half!!!! Make sure ALL equipment is in working order!!! Fully disclose and explain on the online application what job the employee will actually be doing in day one!!!
