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

    Pros

    Benefits. Culture, Learning, Opportunity is plentiful if you have what it takes. Others in leadership roles working together to develop and hire the best. As in any ORG, everyone has a specific skill-set. Many in the same roles rely on one another to hold the team to the expected standard. If you are petty, gossip or complain you should work elsewhere. In working in several buildings, there is always plenty...

    Cons

    Constant change due to explosive growth, not a bad thing but you must be prepared to accept the challenges presented. Parking at many buildings are a premium. Be prepared to walk to your assignment. If you expect to just come in do nothing just to collect your earnings this is not the place. Jealousy by those who cannot meet the highest standards and try to inject discord or fabricate and gossip. Thankfully,...

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Benefits were great! Associates work really hard to meet customer demands. Customer service is top of the line.

    Cons

    Amazon warehouse in Tampa have a lot of deep-seated issues. Very prejudice and only seek to work with employees if they are favorites. Very distasteful place to work for. I imagine the whole company is not like this; however, leaders above the warehouse level need to investigate and observe management and employee relations on the warehouse level. No work-life balance; they work you until you are sick and unable to work...

    I worked at Amazon for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Pay is ok. 2. Clean bathrooms.

    Cons

    1. Attendance points. Calling out sick will result in 1.5 attendance points, with 6 points within 90 days, a worker is fired. As an hourly, you already don't get paid if you don't show up, why the points system also? 2. 15 minutes break are actually 5 minutes. Not only it takes 2-4 minutes to walk to a breakroom, it is 15 minutes SCAN TO SCAN, it means before 15 minutes break was over, you should be able to walk...

    Advice to Management

    Following are for the corporate, not the local management: 1. Less concern about "making rate" and allow people to do things BETTER. Instead of asking workers to race to 5K, why not telling them "it's fine as long as you pick X amounts of total items during the day"? It's not like you are paying your workers according to their rates anyway. The pressure of "making rate" increases unscannables, false pick short and...

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

    Pros

    hourly pay is awesome @$15 an hour. Decent environment

    Cons

    I haven't been able to pick up a shift in 6 weeks. Nothing shows on my "Moment" screen despite constant refreshing. Tried to get help from ERC...totally useless. Condescending at best from pretty much anyone I spoke with including my site manager. Obviously I'm doing something wrong, would be nice if someone...ANYONE acted like they gave a crap.

    Advice to Management

    Remote management is a joke. You have great shoppers who feel like they're not cared about. There are real people working and looking for direction. Skype and emails are ok if you like the non human connection. You know, Team building, moral and stuff. It may work for some but I'd say you'd get better results if you cared a little more. After all, these are the folks doing the labor end.
