    "No MBA? No Future!"

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Positive work environment. Dogs allowed at workstations. Online resources to self-teach.

    Cons

    Company actively pursues and recruits MBAs with no relevant experience and discriminated against Bachelor holders with relevant experience! No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    You need a good balance of education and experience. Graduate school can't teach you everything!

    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.
