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

    Pros

    Lured in the same way it seems everyone else was - $$. $12/hour with no experience and a 4-day work week with paid vacation and PTO seemed great. Chose the job as a temporary fit while finishing my BA.

    Cons

    Managers monitor employees ridiculously close. When I worked as a packer, I'd be questioned if I left my station for three minutes to get a water or slowed my packing speed, even when there were no orders to pack.
    Warehouse was hot, coworkers were creepy, and HR screwed over employees frequently by taking hours despite them being at work.

    Advice to Management

    None. They know what they're doing. Amazon has a crazy employee turnover so they can replace whoever has a problem with their leadership style. Employees are overworked and generally unhappy, particularly in roles where they are left alone with no interaction all shift.
