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

    Pros

    Facility was very clean is pretty much it.

    Cons

    A/C set at 87 degrees in Phoenix in July. Employees are rude and run into you. Many employees sporting gang tattoos and apparel. Was not told during orientation or first few days that 10 minutes were allowed daily for bathroom breaks, if needed, which means in the calculated 24 minutes a day, per shift, that you can sit down on a break/lunch, you deduct more time if nature calls. They see sweaty people rushing about like ants on crack but will not allow PowerAde or Gatorade onto the floor, where health wise, when you sweat like that, water doesn't cut it when you marathon walk for three hours at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the A/C temperature. Be nice to your employees by giving them 20 minutes per break and 45 for lunch. Maybe having a variety of schedules of part-time or 8 hour shifts. Stop hiring gang members - that tats give them away, hint, hint. Have staff go around checking on employees to make sure they are not having heat exhaustion. Drop your times so they are not so "only a professional athlete" could run the mods -- I had two minutes to get from one end to the other and there was no way I could do it, it wasn't fair.
