Productive work place with family environment
Put Away/ Picker/ Reciever (Former Employee), Shepherdsville, KYAugust 11, 2014
Pros: free lunch at the time, rec-room area, free vending
Cons: favoritism, long flights of stairs
A typical day would be doing one job to the next and then going to another area if they needed help there. Putting shoes on the self and having a friendly conversation from time to time. I learned a lot in a little time. I learned how to build work related relationships with my co-workers. How to apply team work into a working environment. I learned – more... a lot of different skills and time management.
The management had its up and downs. I liked my managers and they helped me out a lot. Sometimes people felt they were favoritism being put in role. But I did enjoy having the feeling they were there for me and would help if I needed it. My co-workers were friendly and polite. They made the job fun and interesting. I met some great people while working there.
You always have those few rotten apples in the bunch but management did a good job at getting them out. The hardest part of the job was the adjusting to moving departments two or three times a day. Once you got the hang of it that all came natural. The most enjoyable part of the job was the "family time" you get when we would have culture days. Those were days when they take maybe 15-30 minutes off the work day and do activities in the warehouse to get you involved and meet people you work with and get to know them better. – less

Fun co-workers
Problem Solver (Former Employee), SpartanburgAugust 8, 2014
Pros: fast paced work environment and co-workers
Cons: lack of accurate information from managers and inconsistent evaluation of perfomance
As a problem solver I would help fixed problems with inventory such as unrecognizable bar codes and non existent bar codes. I would also help with locating items placed in wronged stow bins or missing items from stowing carts. Also recording items as damaged if the items were considered unsatisfactory to ship to a customer. I learned a lot about how – more... warehouse work can be and how organized a warehouse needs to be to run effectively. The management was a challenge because some would leave and a new one would come in from a department different from where I worked. The co-workers were an incredible enjoyment to be around mostly because everyone got along. The hardest part of the job was just dealing with issues that not even the managers knew how to deal with. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to meet and interact with people of different ages and backgrounds. – less

Very busy work environment, tv's in lunch rooms and vending machines
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Middletown, DEJuly 28, 2014
Pros: bonuses, pizza, t-shirts
Cons: very crowded and unorganized
A typical day at work would require stretching prior to beginning my shift. The building is huge and there is a lot of walking and pushing of carts full of products that need to be put on shelves. The hardest part of the job is finding enough spaces on the shelves for the products and having to put a certain amount of products in a specific period of – more... time. Management would always encourage room for improvement when having issues. Most co-workers would be separated into different sections so they could concentrate on their work. Monthly bonuses was very much appreciated as well as pizza parties and nacho and pretzel days. Human Resources would also hold monthly Birthday round tables for people who had birthdays on specific months. – less

Typical Distribution Center
Packer (Current Employee), Chester, VAJuly 22, 2014
Pros: great benefit package
Cons: not stable in work hours - get sent home if no work is available
Positions range from stationary work to high volume walking throughout shift. Some supervisors are really good at helping; others have a fit when you ask. Some departments don't want to do their jobs - they just tell you to reference a guide and do it yourself. Most of the co-workers are lazy and just want to sit around and talk all night. There is – more... a lot of heavy lifting involved in all positions. – less

strict and micromanaged workplace
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Chester, VAJuly 20, 2014
Pros: benefits received, raises
Cons: short breaks, long hours, tedious work, micromanaged, change in sleeping pattern
A typical day at Amazon consist of being on your feet for 10 hours with short breaks with tedious work. I have learned that sometimes your best is not good enough. Management made things very challenging for people and pushed everyone to work past limitations. Some can handle it and others can't. You weren't permitted to talk much depending on who you – more... worked for. The hardest part of my job was staying awake, the work is so repetitive and tedious that in a way its boring. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you get to switch positions and get trained in something new. – less

Fun place to work
Ops Admin - Human Resources - Current Title (Current Employee), Tracy, CAJuly 15, 2014
Pros: 4 ten hour days, it was nice having 3 days off every week.
Cons: just being on your feet, the physical aspect of the job.
I worked 4 ten hour days on the night shift. A typical night for me is running the required reports each night. I would check the call out line twice a night to see who was not going to make it in to work. I attended meetings and walked the floor nightly to talk to associates to address any issues they may have.

I loved all the area managers and they – more... always made me feel appreciative. There really was nothing hard to the job except on the body. I enjoy this job but would like something where I can work behind a desk and actually sit instead of stand. – less

Work hard
Order Picker (Former Employee), New Castle, DEJuly 6, 2014
Pros: benefits, wages, growth, incentive program
Cons: management, employees, work hours
Like any warehouse job, it will require a lot of energy, and endurance. It's not a bad job choice if your seeking to improve your life financially. Management has been in & out which causes lower morale. Co-workers are sometimes friendly but sometimes they segregate themselves with certain people which cause those to feel uncomfortable. The job requires – more... (depending on where you are place in each department) standing, walking, lifting, and sitting for eleven hours. It is a four day job for which you receive three days off. It does have annual employee incentive programs to recognize employees for their effort. Even so, they throw annual events for it's employees. – less

Interesting place of work
Stower (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 2, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: not enough interaction with co-workers
A typical work day at my workplace usually consisted of me placing random items on shelves to be included in the websites inventory. I didn't learn much there, everyone mostly kept to themselves while working. Management was pretty good, I didn't see as much of them as I would have liked, but I still saw the managers. I didn't really get to know my – more... co-workers due to everyone having to keep to themselves while working. The hardest part of the job was finding a spot to be able to place the items on the shelves. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to see so many items that I had no idea even existed. – less

Enjoyable work place but poor HR Staff
Associate (Current Employee), Murfreesboro, TNJune 28, 2014
Pros: work enviroment
Cons: human resource department is equivalent to not being there
Work is sometime hard and sometime simple but all the people working there are fun to work with. on the downside the HR department there is very poor and rarely takes time to return calls (because they never answer the phone) or emails.

very productive and active job
picker/ambassador/problem-solver (Former Employee), West Columbia, SCJune 25, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits
Cons: very active, everything is timed
A typical day at work was you clock in, go to stand up area for a quick meeting/pep talk or updates from your supervisor or PA. Then, you are off to your work area and quickly begin working (scan first item within 5 minutes) and keep up your pace throughout the night. As a picker, you walk 12-15 miles a day. It is challenging, but perfect job to get – more... fit. Coworkers are friendly, and tired. The hardest part is constant walking the whole shift, with few, timed chances to sit down. The most enjoyable part was talking with coworkers.
Tip: nice pair of running shoes, stay hydrated and limber. – less

Long and tedious
Stow (Former Employee), Chester, VAJune 22, 2014
Pros: free gaterade
Cons: low pay, long hours, mindless
Mindless 10 hour night shifts of putting items on shelves. Short breaks, and there isn't much communication with your co-workers, because you are by yourself the entire time.
