  1. "Kindle - good experience"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Manager was responsive to what I wanted.
    Lots of engaging problems.

    Cons

    Nobody stays for long - you soon become the oldest in the team.
    This leads to you having to be available. You no longer have enough time to focus!

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

    Pros

    I worked in the warehouse as a Fulfillment Associate and feel that management did try to listen to their team's concerns and at times, resulted in a change that would help the associates be more successful at their jobs.

    Cons

    Management would, at times, avoid conflict among their associates, instead of addressing the issue instead of sweeping them "under the rug".
