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

    Pros

    I worked at Amazon as a seasonal employee over the holiday season. Amazon is a fun environment to work in. I worked night shift, and management would make it fun, which help the time go by fast. Love how the assembly line is structured. Allows employees to learn different skills sets within the warehouse. Management rewards employees with food or raffle giveaways periodically.

    Cons

    When shipments are in high demand, the work load can be a lot.

    Advice to Management

    More recognition for the hard work employees put in.

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

    Pros

    Great starting pay and the ability to get raises very quickly. Full training in all areas are offered and if your willing to work hard and sweat everyday for 10 hours a day, 4 days a week, then this is the job for you. The 4 day weeks go by quick, it can be exhausting so proper rest and a healthy lifestyle will help you stay strong within this company. Beat benefits as well once you are a hired on as a full time employee.

    Cons

    After 3 years of working with the company you "cap out" at $15.75, meaning you can no longer make any more money than that as a tier 1 associate. Your expected to want to move up in the company and that is the only way to make a better hourly wage, by advancing into management and operations management positions if there are any openings.

    I worked at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    -four day work weeks
    -always have the opportunity for more hours
    -benefits starting day one

    Cons

    -disconnection between managers and bottom level employees (depending on the manager you get)
    -physical job that should require at least a doctor's physical before starting employment, there are way to many people who are not physically qualified for the job which hosts the majority of the negative reviews

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

    Pros

    Great pay, they offer benefits, offer unpaid time off when slow

    Cons

    If you don't make an impact you get nixed as seasonal, many people were previously employed seasonal and didn't make the cut on several occasions.

    Advice to Management

    HR misinformed that full-time conversions were available but that was incorrect, they also lack tact and professionalism as HR Staffing members.
