    Pros

    A place to meet new people and gain new experiences.

    Cons

    Some of the managers can be very lazy or don't give recognition to the current employees which makes them feel unappreciated.

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

    Pros

    Great management, decently quick training for greater responsibility, seasonal jobs that turn into full time, and a great crew of people that are sticking with the company. If you were RJ hard, you can take your pick of positions.

    Cons

    Mass hiring, so there will be quite a few idiots, if you make it to any position in the yard, most Amazon flex drivers are extremely absent minded and have a complete disregard for safety.

    Advice to Management

    Talk more with the associates. We notice a lot more than you think we do and want to help.

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

    Pros

    Lots of good people to work with, they do have several schedules to choose from. But I will say we were told some untruths when we first signed up.

    Cons

    On the other hand there are many not so good people. The worst part is the management doesn't seem to know if they are coming or going. They have no control over the not so good people and seem to have no concern what so ever. I hate to say to say it but them seem totally clueless. They make promises that they don't keep and for that reason no one believes a word they say.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with your people and show some concern for them, show them that you care about what happens to them and the business.

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

    Pros

    Easy to apply! Great job for an active person. A shift for every situation. Can pick up extra shifts when available.

    Cons

    The short shifts make a living wage difficult. Short notice flexing the shift up. Sometimes you don't actually know until the buzzer doesn't sound.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your equipment is up to date, as well as logistic practices. A big company using small company equipment makes no sense to be competitive.

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

    Pros

    Work from home is nice

    Cons

    If seasonal Amazon tries very had to keep you that way. I had my manager and her manager vouching for me to convert to a regular employee and the third higher up manager would not allow it after 8 months. No benefits, vacation, or sick days if you are not a regular employee.

    Advice to Management

    Management could use a bit more training on policies

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

    Pros

    The hours are flexible and it's generally a good second job to support with yourself with.

    Cons

    The hours don't fit into a natural shift setting like 8-4 or 4-11 or 12, and you honestly can't support yourself on this job alone.

    Advice to Management

    Give more trial periods to employees who bring up ideas and just make more rounds on the floor. A lot of behavior goes unpunished for slackers.

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

    Pros

    Great starting pay, good for someone who needs employment who is in between jobs or as a second income. During peak season expect a great deal of extra hours if you need and want overtime holiday $$$.

    Cons

    Can't get 20 hrs at times during non peak, working in a hot warehouse, short breaks

    Advice to Management

    Longer break periods.
