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

    Pros

    Good place to start a career as long as you like to work. Must have an outgoing personality if you want to become an ambassador/manager. You will get some benefits even as a part time.

    Cons

    Just like any major billion dollar company you must achieve their number.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great sense of team. Relaxed atmosphere. A real sense of accomplishment as docks clear at end of dispatch.

    Cons

    Changes happen fast and communication doesn't always keep up. Also you have to switch between multiple tasks on a timetable outside your control.

    Advice to Management

    Have more of a dialogue regarding changes, seek to include people at the ground level in discussions regarding work processes.

    Pros

    Lots of hours, clear goals, fun coworkers, plenty of parking, wide array of schedules, easy opportunity to become full time with full benefits

    Cons

    lots of hours, constantly monitored, different positions do not get paid differently despite different workload (loading/unloading trucks gets paid same as people packing boxes), season workers don't get full benefits

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

    Pros

    Good managers that are generally positive, easy to change schedule at sort centers, easy work just building pallets, they attempt to motivate you, regular breaks same time everyday, HR is helpful once you go to them, they're willing to accommodate you if you actually talk to HR about disabilities and limitations, at my center they don't get on to you much about your scan rates you just stay later if everyone does bad,...

    Cons

    Boring as hell, repetitive as hell, people don't build pallets well, they barely talk to new hires about attendance policies to the point where people have almost gotten fired because we don't know what they are in depth, you can only miss four days every three months, if you pass six attendance points they fire you within like 24 hours, only can have one medical excuse per year for absence, scanners don't work a lot...

    Advice to Management

    Find better motivation because not all of us care about company gear, do proper amount of stretches consistently, don't be as condescending when you do actually talk to people about rates and such, make sure scanners are working, outline attendance policies in depth since it's something relevant to every employee, and generally try to motivate people a little better universally since it's such a boring and repetitive...

    Pros

    Part Time, Weekly Pay, 4 HR Shifts, Non-Customer contact, a nice job to have to supplement your income.

    Cons

    You are expected to be on your feet for an extended period of time. There's no sitting down for this job you're constantly moving until it's time for your 15 min break.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    *Competitive pay and good benefits *Growing company open to change and innovation *Inclusive

    Cons

    *Lack of development from above. They say "own your own development" but that is such a cop out for managers to not be invested in your growth. *Operations is not a fun place to work. Leadership is so stressed all the time and thinking of themselves and how they are going to look good. *Peak season (from Thanksgiving - Christmas day) prepare for overtime. Lot's of overtime.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to advertise that this company is a great place to work and grow, please follow through. Great talent is lost YoY due to unclear or unrealistic or even nonexistent career development goals. There are so many jobs within Amazon, help the bees pollinate by spreading their talent instead of strapping them down until they leave the company.

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

    Pros

    Weekly pay. Voluntary time off (VTO) and voluntary extra time (VET) opportunities. Work equipment provided for free. Flexible for school purposes.

    Cons

    Hard labor on the body. They depend on scan rates of 150 packages or higher or your out of the job / penalized. Unsafe environment with packages being stacked incorrectly on pallets. 10 minute break. Not paid enough for the work required. No paid bereavement time off unless your a blue badge employee ( permanent).

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate scan rates entirely and just focus on the idle time to spot employees who aren't working when they are supposed to. Not everyone is Superman out there.
