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

    Pros

    The pay is decent, medical, dental & vision insurance are good, the time off options they give us are great.

    Cons

    The mandatory overtime during peak season with a assigned extra day, even if that day absolutely doesn't work for you they don't give AF. Also the promotion process is scetchy. I've worked for Amazon twice the first time I put in for a promotion, went for a interview the managers looked at my training and experience and made a decision based off that. This go around employees are getting told "you have to tell good stories" in order to get promoted. There seems to be a lot of favoritism and nit picking.

    Advice to Management

    Take time out to work the floor and engage with associates.

    I worked at Amazon (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Three day weekends
    No hassle getting time off
    VCP monthly compensation
    Overtime opportunities
    Mundane easy work

    Cons

    Mundane easy work
    No work life balance around the holidays
    No real challenges in the work
    Negative UPT gets you fired, no exceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people to higher positions solely based on their rates in direct roles. Just because someone can pick or pack fast doesn't mean they know how to manage. Favoritism is also a big reason why you lose talented workers. People don't leave jobs, they leave bad managers.

    I worked at Amazon part-time

    Pros

    This company has one of the best work environments I have ever had the easier of bring employed. The employees have a great comroderie. It is very efficient in operation. Great place to work!!!

    Cons

    The only downside is if you meet your quota early, your shift ends early. The pay is awesome that is a certainty that made me uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    I would start surveying my peak times and low peak times and scale back accordingly so that the employees would have a better certainty of their income.
