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

Pros

Great work environment. The opportunities for career growth are numerous. Flexible work schedule. Inventors can invent, and most teams can spend time to drive quality into their products.

Cons

PAGER DUTY...BEWARE! Get a good sense of what type of situation your perspective team is in before entering (broken glass zones, etc).

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

    Pros

    Some nice coworkers that I got to know for two weeks.

    Cons

    Out of work for a year, I could not afford a cell phone. Two weeks working at Quidsi, I was accused of having a cell phone and dismissed. As soon as I was off premises, I ran into other black and brown people also dismissed for similar reason. How do you prove that you do not have a cell phone when management accuses you of having one? Looking into the building you can see others pointing out people they used to work with like it was a common game. It was surreal. The Department of Labor really needs to look into why there is such a high turnover in product prep. People that knew Quidsi told me to stay away from the job but I did not listen because I thought it was an exaggeration. YES, it is that bad and it is an abstract form of discrimination...you can't prove it...yet it exist.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management, I will personally not shop through Amazon.com or any other etailer that uses Quidsi for distribution.

    Pros

    Brilliant People. Great experience. Great pay. Great benefits. Good stability.

    Cons

    Fast paced, which is challenging. Little room for error, but still worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Be on your A game.
