I worked at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

(Reviewed as SMX Temp, from Nov-Jan)
Good starting pay, lots of hours during peak.
Lots of focus on safety and quality.

Cons

11 hour days during peak, could have had more breaks.
30 minute lunch is quite rushed.
Odd shifts, mine was Sun-Thurs.
Horrible, repetitive music.

Advice to Management

Please no music, or if music, require it to be changed every hour or so. Hip hop all day long was quite annoying. 11 hour shifts should have longer breaks or at least a longer 45 min lunch.

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

    Pros

    Good salary, Fair opportunity for advancement, smart people

    Cons

    Unfair manager rating systems. Popularity contests, too much of a "ME, ME, ME" culture where people try to exceed at the expense of their peers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent and look at merits rather than popularity
