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

Pros

Palletizing, stacking totes; so easy a monkey could do it; for the most part, you won't lift more than about 30 lbs...not that heavy.
As long as you make rate, you are left alone for the most part.
Most employees are very nice and respectful.
The job pays extremely good money for such easy work---especially night shift
4 nights a week (off-peak)

Cons

The job procedures are a bit nitpicky (EX: above 4 pallets, get a partner, which ain't always possible especially when there are few people on the EOL line and you get weighed down with so many totes)

Some associates like to boss you around as if they are your supervisors...annoying

The job is extremely boring and tiresome; you do the same thing over and over and over for weeks and weeks before being given another assignment

Advice to Management

Make the job more exciting by switching up assignments every other day.

    Pros

    Opportunities to influence change are abundant. Continuous change, so if you don't like something...just wait around a bit. Lots of OT during the holidays.

    Cons

    Long days. Can be stressful depending on your position. Lots of OT during the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be as transparent as possible...it allows your associates to accept change easier.

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

    Pros

    Amazon offers great benefits like stock shares when you are full- time. Always busy so hours aren't and issue and competitive pay raises**! You receive a raise every six months then they are given annually. Quick and easy to make money with a seasonal position.

    Cons

    Seasonal is comparable to sweatshop work! Very tuff physical labor and expect a mandatory schedule of 60 hours.- full time positions have been rumored ( and lived up to) unemployment after " maxing out on their payroll scales... Warehouse workers will make about $14 hourly and they find ways to fire people ( not my experience) after they have been maxed at the $14** hr mark.... You max out after about 4 years, right when employees are comfortable with their position and relying on the income... Amazon hubs do not seem to value their employees and do not tell a whole lot about their company in whole upon highering... Let alone your position and what your position means to the company.
