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

    Pros

    It amazed me to see such a large company giving their employees major benefits from day one.
    From what I have seen, management is amazing. They support teamwork and try to encourage employees rather than treating us like a number, which others have claimed in their reviews. I see it as a good place to work and I am glad for the opportunity. I consider Amazon to be a wonderful employer that provides so many benefits that most other employers would not even consider. I am going to stick with it, because it is refreshing to feel appreciation through the many ways Amazon takes care of it's employees.

    Cons

    None that I have seen.

    Advice to Management

    I can honestly say I have not seen anything but what you would expect from a great management team. Seems like a great place that I am proud to work for. I just wanted others to hear the good, because it really is a great company to work for.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, sweat, competition, overtime, sometimes fun, 3 days off.

    Cons

    Pay tops out at warehouse normal, long days, stressful peak, forced overtime managers that only care about hitting their numbers

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates, build your team better instead of only caring about yourself, fight for your teams success

    10 hour days/ 4 days a week
    They start off good hourly wages

    In my opinion not enough training for the amount of work they have us do, I had a good 26 hours of training then I was set out to ride a PIT or powered industrial truck
