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

    Pros

    Good pay
    Great benefits
    Paid time off
    When your shifts over you stop working
    Amenities in the warehouse
    Multiple job opportunities
    Good exercise

    Cons

    Long hours
    You must understand this is a warehouse, it's big. Really big.
    Amazon gets orders that have to be fulfilled, they promise those orders in a certain time, so naturally the job is fast paced. You don't have to push yourself management sees that your trying and not hanging out nothing happens to you. The people who talk bad about Amazon are the same people standing around talking and not doing their job, and are mad when they get in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Not to have favorites when it comes to picking people to do jobs, just because someone has been there longer doesn't mean they are a better worker

    There is not a lot of opportunity to move forward when we don't have barely any work they increase rate and find reason to fire people.

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

    Pros

    when I started I could make my own schedule but they don't do that anymore. You can cross train and learn different aspects of the job.

    Cons

    the pay, working in the freezer, can't keep good managers, they don't give raises. Many worked 1-2.5 yrs. without a raise and they were very loyal and hard working. Amazon makes way too much money to treat their employees like this!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees! Give us our due raises every 6 months!

    Pros

    There is a lot of voluntary overtime. Plus if you don't miss any days in a month you earn 4% bonus.

    Cons

    There is a lot of INvoluntary overtime. During the holidays you will be working over time.Then during the whole month of December you'll be working 6 days a week.

    Advice to Management

    most are very friendly.

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

    Pros

    It pays well, everyone gets trained on a machine. Plus you can get by hardly talking to anyone or talking with everyone, up to you. Your starting pay is better than most other jobs, but it makes sense, considering work hazards and what's expected of you.

    Cons

    Warehouse is full of dust, everything is heavy so the potential for injury is high, machines aren't for everyone, soul-crushing at times, you'll possibly get a forced partner every day depending on your job/department

    Advice to Management

    Bless you for trying to keep things safe. Let people work by themselves if they want.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, Know what to expect daily.

    Cons

    Refuse to remove restraints. Expect you to increase your output without regard to safety standards and rules only count when you have an accident . Want you to use RR only on break. Having an upset stomach can cause a write up for TOT

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like adults. Show compassion. Care about safety more than productivity
