    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    It has many benefits.

    Cons

    .There is limited room for promotion
    . It has low employee retention history
    .Favouritism is becoming the salient feature

    Advice to Management

    . Work on employee satisfaction as equally as the attention you give for productivity and quality,
    .Amazon needs to work on devising a clear road map of promotion with a hard work,
    .Some managers are corrupted and show direct or indirect favouritism. Amazon need to work on to ensure its rules! There is poewer abuse!
