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

    Pros

    I could work overtime if I wanted to. I was off three days a week. You get one big break and two small breaks.

    Cons

    I hated just being a number and a log in name. I didn't like walking for 10 hours straight. If I had to run use the restroom they were right on me asking why I was time off task for that amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if the management knew us other than by a number or a log in name and if we are struggling in an area then find out what they can do to help.

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

    Pros

    Benefits on day 1. Good opportunities for growing in the company.

    Cons

    Treat employees too much like robots. Walk over 10 miles a day as a picker. I can already begin to see Amazon preparing their warehouses for robots to take over.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees more like humans instead of robots. Everything is about rate, rate, and more rate.
