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

Pros

Working with latest technologies. Team mates are smart, knowledgeable and always helpful. Learning a lot everyday. Can practice leadership skills.

Cons

Challenging work environment. Work life balance is not that great. On call pressure. Too much operational works. Less time for coding. Frugality is too much.

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

    Pros

    Good pay relative to other minimum wage and wharehouse jobs.

    Cons

    Terribly designed quota system. Physically exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know anyone who stayed longer than 3 months. Your turnover rate is astronomical. I would consider lightening the load on each individual.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, enjoyed the exercise, gave senior citizens a chance too work, loved the management in outbound shipping.

    Cons

    Rate standards are absurd, no consideration given to obstacles (wrong box size, dunnage and tape machine constantly going down or being empty, pieces missing or wrong items in tote, add-on time not being recorded from start of problem to problem being solved). Drove nearly 3 hours a day getting back and forth on top of the 10 1/2 hours in the building. Two 15 minute breaks that weren't 15 minutes because it took 5 minutes to walk to and from your station.

    Advice to Management

    Jeff Bezos is out of touch reality...greedy self absorbed egomaniac...
