General Laborer/Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Hebron, KYOctober 28, 2014
Pros: time off
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work is tiring from the 10 hour days to lifting boxes all day every day with minimal breaks.
My co-workers were wonderful as a place like amazon has people from all walks of life and a huge age range, so there was never a shortage of people around.
The majority of the management i know are very rude, do not explain your job well, and – more... seem to be on a power trip, while i'm sure this is not true of all of them, that was for the most part my experience.
its nice that you come in and know what your doing every day there are only so many options on the other hand that gets very monotonous. – less

Best Job Experience Ever!! Working in Amazon is like being a student. Everyday, you get to learn something new.

People can easily find teams working on their favorite technologies and ask for an internal – more... transfer. This is one of the few companies where internal transfer is highly encouraged. – less

Packer (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNOctober 26, 2014
Pros: cheap food, easy work, competitive pay
Cons: management can be a bit lacking, little in the way of advancement.
If you're expecting a place to advance, I would look somewhere else. Amazon works you to the bone, with no care for your limits. In some cases people are put in positions where the was no training. It seems like the difference between the temp and the hired on is impossibly large. And, in a way it is. But, with all of that said. Amazon is a good place – more... to work. I did enjoy it, and that sentiment is shared by many. Amazon is either a place you like or don't. – less

A typical day at work as a facilities technician at amazon.com includes answering calls thru-out the building, completing p.m.'s on various equipment.

Working at Amazon.com is great! Going to work, working in a fun working environment, and meeting great people. Amazon.com is very proficient in training.

Stowing (Former Employee), Chester, VAOctober 22, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of ten hours of stowing. While at Amazon, I learned how to stow and I also had got trained in the receive department. The management there was fair and I had great co-workers. I don't consider the job hard and the most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work well with others.
