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

    Pros

    Work from Home, Flexible Schedule, lots of help and resources available, Provides laptop.

    Cons

    Dealing with the different carriers....however that is not Amazon. If you enjoy being on the phone for long periods of time it is for you. Starting pay is rather low for all you are asked to do, but it is room to move around and get a possible increase.

    Advice to Management

    None

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits, quick hiring process, great exercise, no need for a gym membership if you work in a FC

    Cons

    Work-life balance, no on board training (1 and half days worth of "training". Long period of time walking. They don't tell you what your goals are.

    Advice to Management

    All of my on boarding training and orientation was full of telling me what not to do instead of helping you know what to do and how to be successful.
