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

    Pros

    I applied online and got hired immediately it was a direct hire hiring event no interview just orientation about the job they let you pick your schedule but they place you in your position.. Basically it's a good job if you're full time for me the benefits were amazing because I'm out of state and I recently moved to the east coast so I didn't have to worry with their benefits package and the pay was good if you're willingness to work there's overtime like crazy and voluntary time off that doesn't affect your points good pay . Given the high turnover rate and volume of employees if you want to be recognized you need to make initiative to get to know. Management.

    Cons

    Only downfall is probably how psychically demanding it is... No pair of shoes Will suffice lol its intense but it's manageable

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really given the high turnover rate and so many employees it's hard to know everyone

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

    Pros

    programs to enroll in classes at the facility at a discounted price to allow you to have a career after you leave amazon in such areas as billing and coding, phlebotomy, medical admin and more. stock given after 2 yrs of employment. great medical dental and vision insurance at low rates!

    Cons

    the job is simple but its exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    try to show more appreciation to the people who work the hardest. there are people who do the bare minimum on purpose and people who work extremely hard...provide more incentive for everyone to work harder by giving out rewards that people actually want.

    Weekly pay on Fridays. Chance to leave early. Keeps you busy.

    Advice to Management

    Offer VTO at first stand up to public transportation associates first. That way they are stuck without any means of getting home. THEN offer VTO at 2nd stand up to those are able to drive themselves to and from.
