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

    Pros

    As a seasonal employee, there is slight coverage such as medical and sick leave. Coworkers are nice and helpful. Ambassadors are really helpful when you don’t know how to do a specific job because you are learning multiple key jobs as a warehouse associate. Pay rate is good, for the starting. Just gotta keep working hard and aim for management. You get what you put in overall. Try to take as much VET as possible and put in the effort because management looks at the work you put even when you don’t think so.

    Cons

    No unpaid time off yet, and feet hurts after awhile of doing physical labor. A lot of employees quit because of the labor but people come and go and there is always a lot of new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up motivation morale is low, I recommend key incentives for employees such as food or something. Currently from my management, their giving us pizza next week because of our hard work which is very appreciated.

    I worked at Amazon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun to work as a team and be a part of making history. HR is awesome and very informative. They will really help you.

    Cons

    Too repetitive and you only get promoted if you kiss up to management. They show favoritism amongst employees. They treat you like a robot.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate your employees so they don’t get burnt out. Stop showing favorite’s because the employees see it and it’s not fair.

    Pros

    Easy really liked it until my third day.

    Cons

    Not enough parking for all the employees required to show up to work. You could end up with your car towed while working.

    Advice to Management

    Tell employees before hand that Amazon has insufficient parking for all employees.

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

    Pros

    Getting in your car and going home.

    Cons

    Human resources helps the bullies get away with bullying you till you fight back and they think its your fault. Supervisors two face back stabbers, they tell you to vent and talk to them, once you vent they use your own words against you. I hope donald trump shuts you down for trying to rip off the post office.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you guys shut down


  7. "An okay place to work for some decent pay."

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

    Pros

    Fixed hours, easy work, weekly pay (if you're seasonal).

    Cons

    The easy work can become repetitive very quickly. The equipment always seems to be broken and with as much money as Amazon has coming in, there's no excuse for it.

    Advice to Management

    Please replace your equipment more often.

    I have been working at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very "go get it" culture. Enables you to chase your goals from the start. Provide you with the resources you need to succeed whether that be online lessons or company events to aid development.

    Cons

    Cut throat sometimes. Very easy to get discouraged because they want people to fail and learn from it quickly. Managers can be distant sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on aiding the development of future managers. Teach them how to develop others, and you will create a self-sustaining talent pool.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay and health benefits. Fast development model. Look to hire the best for roles higher than tier I.

    Cons

    Company doesn’t screen applicants for FC besides basic background and drug screen. So many associates come in and just don’t want to come to work. FC HR ends up having to deal with basic employee relations and attendance management majority of time. Benefits administration, LOA, many other functions are decentralized so not truly the spot for a HR Generalist.

    Advice to Management

    So much focus on associate engagement and retention that support roles are forgotten. Don’t forget the constant beating that support roles have to endure because management will send all problems to support’s way to deal with. Many support roles in the FC are not given the same consideration as associates and other leadership.

    Management team really takes notice of your value, even when you dont think they do.

    Cons

    No cons really to add.
