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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Unpaid time off, paid time off and vacation. Able to take personal leaves with no explanation. Gift cards during peak and some shifts get pay raises. Part time work has a shift differential for pay. Free coffee. Diversity. Lax dress code. Don't have to deal with costumers. AC. AM Care for injuries. Breast feeding room. Quiet room/prayer room

    Cons

    Cannot sit at any time while on the floor. No phones. Most positions keep track of rates which can be really high. Most positions keeps track of time off task. Few bathrooms that are very far away. Lots of walking and using stairs. A lot of positions lack the ability to socialize. Doing the same thing for ten hours. 15 minute breaks start Immediately no matter where you are in the building and you must be back and scan first item exactly after 15 minutes. Break rooms can be hot and humid. Always push for speed.
