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

    Pros

    Pay is good, I think it depends on the area your in so you get paid enough to live comfortably off of. Great benefits, paid time off, unpaid time, and vacation, holiday pay, made some friends with my co-workers.

    Cons

    Job security can waver based on how long you’ve been there and if your working up the later, and you must meet Quality and Productivity every week.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely need to chill on Productivity just a little, I mean I’ve been written up for Productivity because I was at 99.7%, I almost lost my job. Also managers that get hired on from the outside and have no idea how to help us out.
