Corporate Recruiter & Sourcing Researcher (Former Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – May 4, 2016
Says it all in the title. Very good higher ups but some weakness in mid level management which makes advancement and navigating the company difficult. Have to be extremely self starting and able to deal with a lot of ambiguity, chart your own path.
Get ready to lift and carry heavy boxes! Most of the time you flex up and have to stay longer hours. People are mean they make fun of you. A lot of jealous managers; if you tend to work better than them then they will give you a hard time. Then they will use the workers to against you. They lie about the blue badges stating if you work after 90 days you will get a blue badge.
Electromechanical Assembler (Former Employee) – North Reading, MA – May 3, 2016
it was a well organized company with with alot of opportunity. a really fast pace job. working side by side with co-workers, helping each other. learned alot about the product we builded. it was a great experienced.
i work here and 10 hours looks hard to do but is easy when u get 2 breaks and 1 lunch time but the bad thing about amazon is the leaderships are always in their office, they don't care that much about their employees, if u do a good job where you at u have to know that they will keep u in the same position unless u apply for another position and to apply for another position u have to wait 90 days working there to have that benefit. 10 hours of job is hard sometimes because every time i go to sleep, when i wake up, i just have like 2 hours gap to do whatever i want and then go to the work again.
ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Murfreesboro, TN – May 3, 2016
Usually, stayed busy with sometimes not enough work, however, it was a great place for promotion. People were pretty much friendly for the most part, but management did whatever they wanted to most of the time.
Provided with lunches during peak season, raises were presented.
Short breaks, healthcare benefits were only provided for certain doctors.
Assembly Line Packer (Former Employee) – Chester, VA – May 3, 2016
The employer gives an assignment daily. Each day you have to check to see where your work area will be. This is a stand up job, therefore management required pre-stretching daily in a group along with a safety meeting reminder. I believe this job added to my production skills. For me the hardest part of the job was the location. The most enjoyable was the ability to obtain additional work hours.
Amazon is a great job. I love the ability to be able to work extra hours and the opportunity the allow for you to advance. I would recommend Amazon to anyone looking for a good job with great room to grow.
Management hardly ever communicates with employers before making major decisions involving the employers. They expect the employers to go from one job function to the next with little to no training and master it.
Constantly changing environment with many opportunities

For being such a large company, implements changes faster than most places I have been to take advantage of emerging business opportunities or meet customer needs and wants. For those that are able to adapt to the culture there is plenty of places to enrich your career.

Fullfillment Associate (Former Employee) – Lewisberry, PA – May 1, 2016
The job isn't that bad, it's the management that Make this entire experience horrible! They are so disorganized and unprofessional. The do not train you like they are suppose to or explain the job details.
a typical day at work is non stop I learned how to strive in a competitive work environment management are always to busy with productivity to work with the associates people are pretty nice but the fact they can move you around at any day keeps you from focusing on one set goal sometimes it can prevent you from making your rate honestly the most enjoyable part is going home

Senior Editor (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 1, 2016
An Amazonian's experience varies greatly depending on the business--and there are many, many businesses within Amazon. It also varies greatly depending on the manager; while at Amazon, I've had the best manager in my 20-year career, as well as the worst manager.
Amazon is a great workplace if you're looking for a career-building opportunity to work with incredibly bright people and to refine your ability to make data-driven decisions in a (almost prohibitively) lean environment.
Great medical benefits, stock incentives
Difficult to promote, runs too lean, management hit/miss
