"It is the best warehouse job."

Pros

The pay is good, you work 10 hour days and only work 4 hours. i worked the night time shift which still wasnt that bad.

Cons

It gets really hot in the summer time. Depending on your job it can get repetitive and some jobs require more exercise then others.

Advice to Management

Place more water throughout the warehouse.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I appreciate some of the benefits but employee costs needs to be lower to compete with other companies.

    Cons

    Time off needs to be updated - vacation time and only having a total of 6 holidays per year is not competitive. Ability to be promoted is talked about in the interview process but in the end if you come in as a mgr or sr. manager the opportunities are few and far between at the next level. You are expected to relocate laterally across the country for a same levle job/lateral move - no additional money and hoped you will be promoted but then does not happen. If you can get promoted you are expected to do the job for a long time (12 - 18+ months) before promo and increased occurs. Increases to base pay will be very small. Many employees are not friendly and throw others under the bus in order to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on opp's for middle mgmt - create more opp's, change promo process, focus on retention - if not it will catch up very soon.
