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

    Pros

    Employee shops for food, though a bit pricey. Free ice, coffee and hot chocolate. Tends to be a lot of give aways for doing your job. Your voice has weight if you are willing to put in the footwork even as a new employee. Amcare...first aid services on sight.

    Cons

    Safety concerns that arise frequently due to the rapidly evolving nature of Amazon. A problem at hr level to me and several others for years being told we would be getting a higher pay than the actual pay during the recruitment process.

    Advice to Management

    Fight the machines. Help employees be proactive with rates by helping them make rate. Having one person do heavy boxes all week can really kill productivity...try to spread the load.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazon when it first opened up was an amazing place to work, Management was friendly and everyone worked hard and together to get daily and weekly goals met while still having time to work on projects that would further improve the company hence why I'm giving them 2 stars instead of 1.

    Cons

    Over the years, things started to change. Managers began to practice heavy in favoritism and upper management began asking for more and more as they should in an ever growing company like Amazon. However, they would demand and no manager would ever show backbone(one of the company standards) and state that certain things where necessary before productivity increased. They would agree to increase the burden on their corresponding departments try to survive for a year or half because that's all they had to last before they were transferred or promoted, leaving the mess they left to lower management(process assistants, shipping clerks, even the oncoming area manager sent to replace them). I witnessed an entire department fall in my years there and become notorious. I showed backbone not because I was fighting back, but because I was passionate about my job and just wanted to see my department succeed. I don't believe a company can be evil, but my latter time at Amazon was some of the most frustrating and horrendous years of my life and it bothers me to this day still how people are treated in the building known as Ont2.

    Advice to Management

    Amazon is a huge company and work ethnics need to be improved. Please stop mistreating and bullying your employees.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, 40 hours, pay, supervisors are great, break room, overtime!!

    Cons

    constantly hearing employees complaining, long tiring hours,

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, don't forget that warehouse jobs are physically draining and should give great opportunity for chiropractors or such to refresh employees. Just something. I personally love labor work but everyone needs a break.

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

    Pros

    It is a job that'll work if you are a student and are on summer vacation and need to be able to pay rent.

    Cons

    Management is horrendous. I didn't even know who my supervisor was. I talked to about 2 people who said they were my supervisor, but that was only a couple of times. The rest of the time I was talking to this completely other dude. It was very confusing. To top it off, their training is so unclear on what exactly it is you do and how to do it effectively so you can make rate (their rate expectations are crazy by the way). When I brought issues that prevented me from doing the job as best I can, they dismissed them and gave some weak excuse like "if you have a problem during your shift, go talk to (insert name) and they'll fix it for you" yet to go to those people and they did not help.
    I feel like I was setup for failure. I should've known going into it because of their employee turnover, but I needed money for the summer to keep a roof over my head.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people, rather than numbers. You'll be surprised how much stronger a team of motivated workers is than ones who are in constant fear of either being fired because of not making rate, or being fired for bringing up problems that prevent them from making rate.
