Doesn't Recommend

I worked at Amazon full-time

Pros

Sometimes you would find an open box of candy to eat.

Cons

They worked you like a slave. The breaks were not enough for all the running we had to do throughout the ginormous wear house. They should definitely pay more. In the summertime it was beyond unbearably hot and it is very hard to make rate as a picker.

    Pros

    Cons

    Only good for rockstars, if you are not planning to be the best - don't bother. Even from a money perspective, only rockstars get promoted and the big bonuses.
