Current Employee - Buying Assistant II in Miramar, FL
Current Employee - Buying Assistant II in Miramar, FL
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

Great career opportunity and a fun job if you are doing what you like in this company which is I guess 90+% of the employees. They make sure that they hire the right people with desire to work and have fun on the job. The interview process is kind of thorough I my point of view is that it is also effective. They don't want people coming from the street just for the money. They seek for people with passion and expertise in the area that they are applying for. Employees are getting rewarded accordingly with stocks and other benefits.

Cons

Their Headquarters is in Seattle which is not the best state. They have fulfillment centers all over US, however if you would really like to get a job in the Headquarters you have to move to the state were it rains the most throughout the whole USA. In addition, everybody is saying that Seattle has the highest suicide rate because of the weather. If you are applying into FC (fulfillment center) you have less positions to choose from, however you have more states and locations open for opportunity and international revocations are also good opportunity to see the world and enjoy life.

Advice to Management

Appreciate the work that the employees are doing for you and reward them. If has saved you 8 hours a week of your job by automating a process, reward him. Don't think it's his job - it's his creativity and knowledge and everybody likes to be rewarded.
