Former Employee - Operations Leadership Intern in Reno, NV
Former Employee - Operations Leadership Intern in Reno, NV
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Great compensation. Extremely fast growing company. Amazon shares with you how they manage one of the largest supply chains and how there are able to handle their operations to meet high demands.

Cons

Amazon encounters many problems day to day with their operations. This creates tension between managers within fulfillment centers. They are growing at such a fast rate it can be overwhelming for employees.

Advice to Management

Communicate the aspects of the internship more clearly. The desires of an intern's manager gets in the way of the desires of HR and what they are looking for in return from the interns.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you can get away from the legacy technology there's a lot of cool new stuff being worked on, and the people there are generally brilliant and passionate. It's a good place to learn a lot about technology and best practices.

    Cons

    Your job has to come before your life -- beyond the dreaded pager rotation, people routinely work evenings and weekends at home, and in general you need to have your head in the job 24/7.

    Amazon has a deservedly bad reputation for how it treats low-level employees, partners, and basically everyone it does business with. Not a place to work if you want to have a warm fuzzy feeling about your employer.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The only pro I can think of is that the hiring process was very very fast, maybe too fast for me to make an informed decission to work there.

    Cons

    The list can be so long. hard back breaking work, not easy on the body. the company and management treat you like a slave. more than 1 second late from a break and you get writen up. Written up really? is this Jr. High? Break starts from the time you leave your "station" and it takes 5 minutes to walk to break area. So in a sense your break is only 5 minutes long.

    Management has an attitude that they are better than you.

    It's a low paying job at only $12.50 an hour and you are rated on how many packages you handle on top of that.

    bad company policies for employee's

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue how to treat people. People are not numbers, we are not machines. Have a little humanity. You are a manager in a wearhouse, get over yourself, you are not that special. maybe do something about company policy as well.
