    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Amazon continually drives improvement for business and employee growth. Whether you have drive and wisdom from education or a strong work ethi/experience, both are rewarded as we shape the future.

    With excellence, comes longer hours for management, but also reaps benefits. Demanding fast pace will test your fortitude and endurance and learning curves are steep.

    You own your career, advancement, and time off. You'll be paid well, so manage your time accordingly and focus on long-term, but don't lose sight of the short-term gains.

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

      Pros

      at face value the starting pay is great and you can pick your hours/days, shift goes by fairly quickly if you are a stower, you have the option of never interacting with your co- workers so there is very little drama

      Cons

      you pretty much are asked to do the work of 3 to 4 employees that amazon refuses to hire due to benefit pay outs, you will get over loaded and you may or may not get help, when you are caught up on your work your co-workers will steal the little work you have to boost their own points/levels/scores or whatever management calls it these days to evaluate your performance. it is scorching hot on the one side and freezing...

      I have been working at Amazon part-time

      Pros

      The company pays out weekly

      Cons

      Amazon needs to use machines to work the factory and sorting because they are not paying the employees enough and get harassed to move faster. The company doesn't care about their employees. They only care about getting the packages to the customers on time. But half the time the company equipment doesn't even work in order to perform the duties accurately. Many managers have no idea what is going on or if they are even...

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

      Pros

      Very safety conscious and good at on-the-job training.

      Cons

      Virtually no time off at all. They expect maximum work out of employees without returning the favor in terms of bonuses, raises, or promotions. Very bad about nitpicking output rates.

      Advice to Management

      Stop micromanaging employees and allow them to do the work without the constant fear of messing up. Look at overall output numbers of a shift.

      Pros

      -Large company with opportunity to grow -Competitive pay with stock options -Opens a lot of doors for networking

      Cons

      -Big transitions happening right now, easy to get lost in the sea of faces -If you're not cutthroat you will not advance -For the world's wealthiest company under the world's wealthiest man, they could stand to take better care of their employees (401k, actual raises after positive reviews, fostering some kind of positive work environment etc...)

      Advice to Management

      Care about your people.
