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

    Pros

    I really don't see any except callers were generally nice.

    Cons

    No regards for employees needs.

    Advice to Management

    You run a big company and want almost unreal results, at least for VCS, provide better systems or allow people to use their own, have the tools ready and going when the agents need them, and if they're not, then don't demand them of such results, it puts a bad experience for employees and customers alike. And please do not play with your employees expectations (that you previously set), time and emotional health.

    I worked at Amazon as a contractor

    Pros

    Work when you want, good pay, don’t have to deal with customers

    Cons

    After you are with the Flex program over 5 months you don’t see the blocks the brand new drivers see, warehouse workers well most don’t care about you, your just another number to Amazon, if you have a issue & contact Amazon support you get a scripted response, use your own car & gas

    Advice to Management

    Treat veteran drivers who produce well as good as you do brand new drivers. I’ve seen so many hard working reliable drivers get deactivated for absolutely nothing. Don’t blame the drivers for stolen packages.

    I worked at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    You can pick your schedule

    Cons

    You cannot change the schedule you pick.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility is key. Don't draw a hard line with schedule changes. Due to your lack of flexibility in scheduling, I had to quit the job. At first I chose to work six days a week, which they gave to me. Then after I discovered how strenuous the job was, I asked to change the schedule to 4 days a week. I was advised by the HR associate that no schedules can be changed until Jan 3, 2017. I said then I will have to quit the job and she advised me that was a decision I would have to make but she could not help me. If you don't care about me, then I don't care about you. Bad impression for a new associate.
