    Pros

    Cafeteria with food A lot of people to talk to Very down to earth Coaches you, no discipline (only if you screw something royal)

    If people cannot physically carry out a task, assign them to another place to work at!

    Pros

    Affordable benefits and great coverage

    Former Employee - Fulfillment Associate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay Opportunity for advancement but your seniority is basically only recognized by your manager so of they switch out or leave then you're screwed.

    Cons

    Management is constantly changing so it's not easy staying in informal roles.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize management so employees have a stable place to work and be confident in.

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable work. Not that hard.

    Cons

    Not much room for improvement

    Advice to Management

    10 hours a day for four days straight isn’t that bad at first glance. Let people listen to music while working and have longer breaks like just one hour instead of two 30 minute breaks since it takes a while to walk to the break room. I get the whole no phones on the floor thing but offer some kind of way to let people have some kind of MP3 player to at least get them through the days instead of the sound of conveyer...

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great beginning wage to start

    Cons

    Blackout dates show no mercy for illness and will have you lose your job if you get sick. For example. Start 4 weeks and then get the flu, even with a doctors note, you will lose your job if you have to be out more then 3 work days if it happens during Blackout days.

    Advice to Management

    Gave me no choice but to quit due to illness because HR was unwilling to excuse my sickness. You lost a great employee due to a random uncontrolled sickness. Seems unfair to both sides and management should be more considerate.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    $15 / hour and no interview makes it easy to start up quickly Safe and clean place to work

    Cons

    It's hard work and the only thing they are interested in is productivity

    Advice to Management

    Let people choose their role coming in.

    Pros

    You get to meet new employees every week.

    Cons

    White over40. Need not apply! Out of a job in 30 days. Management could not explain "Amazon Culture"!! If you do something wrong or do not meet quality expectations you are left out in the "Amazon" to survive! Letting many people go to justify 15.00 pay raise? Job not for "everyone"!

    Advice to Management

    Article read about "Trust" builds a consumer relationship with business. How about trust and respect towards fellow associates? This would lead to the endless loop of meeting new hired employees every week!

    I have been working at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    I've only worked here for a bit over a week, so I can't comment on much. But so far, most employees and the management are all very friendly and helpful, and that counts for a lot. I am generally given the option to leave early if I need to, and on the flip side have the option to stay for a bit longer to do additional work near the end of each shift (changes things by about an hour plus or minus). The environment is...

    Cons

    The work is physically demanding. You are basically exerting yourself for hours on end, though you do get a 30 minute (unpaid) lunch break and also potentially a 10-15 minute (paid) break if you work for more than 5 hours. It's fast-paced, and while you can go very slowly, if you are actually trying to do a good job you're basically looking at working 3-4 times harder than most minimum-wage positions requiring manual...

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to have safety rules, you need to enforce them. People break them fairly often in order to boost their "numbers." Given that we're compared in many ways to our coworkers based on our numbers, and promotions or advancement could be linked to our performance, seeing many long-term employees routinely breaking the rules in order to benefit their "numbers" is frustrating to say the least. Then again, the...
