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

    Pros

    Benefits, competitive entry level pay, location

    Cons

    Unrealistic metric goals, false sincerity from everyone in upper management to human resource, labor intensive, expendable associate culture, indoctrination of customer obsession, non supportive enviroment. Orthopedic nightmare from tasks without ergonomic support.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting based off favoritism, listen to your associates concerns and recognize that they are the backbone of the entire operation and are what retains your consumer base. Keep passing promising employees over and you will lose more than just an associate for we are customers with families as well.

    Pros

    I definitely agree that this job isn’t for everyone however, it is a warehouse job and that does mean physical labor. The turnover rate is high because a lot of new hires see early on it isn’t for them and that shouldn’t reflect negatively on Amazon, if anything I find it great that they hire in bulk, they seem to give everyone a chance which I know a lot of us need. It boggles my mind over these negative reviews, your employer created the rules...follow them or quit? It’s really that simple. Benefits rock, atmosphere is great, you do feel valued despite reading that we are just a “badge number,” in reality the badge numbers are crucial because if your family calls in for an emergency they NEED to know where you are to connect you as soon as possible. They only require 24 hour notice for vacation, you can take pto if you feel like leaving, break rooms are fantastic and a wide variety of food/drinks/etc. I would definitely encourage everyone to apply, you won’t know if you like it until you try. If you excel at your job you are noticed right away, even on the first day.

    Cons

    Breaks could be longer
    10-hour shifts are hard on your feet but honestly, stretch and get good shoes.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have your ambassador’s on the same page when training new hires, it was tough to figure out which guidance to listen to when being taught.

    Pros

    Lunch room is cheap and has a large assortment of items, the benefits are great, many discounts are offered,

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism, managers are at many times sub-par

    Advice to Management

    Some of the draw backs were the operating system. Many times the operating system would momentarily fail and cause errors on my behalf. Even with video and testimonial evidence the error stained my record and put me on 30 day probation. Continuing off of that the draw back is how other employees mistakes may cause you to fail. If a "water spider", the worker which provides you with the product to stow, were to be slow it can negatively affect your rate. Managers and'or PA's (Personal Assistants) rarely cared for "andon's" (digital messages which relay an error on the production line). It is rather infuriating.

    Pros

    Can't find a good reason to work there.

    Cons

    They work you to death. During Christmas can take 1/2 hour to park and another 1/2 hour or more to go through metal detectors to leave when your shift is done. If you have any metal in you.....artificial knee, etc.....you will need to be double scanned everytime you leave the building for break or when you leave after your shift. This can take half hour, but you have to clock out first. They need to find a better way!

    Advice to Management

    Think more about your employees......we are not machines.
