Poor Management /Favoritism/Rude HR/ Work You to death and still, find something to complain about. Feel like you doing your beat but all they care about is rates and numbers. That's all you, are. Promises when you, start but fee months past everything changes. Was not the job for Me thankfuly I was blessed to find somewhere where I'm valued and enjoy going to everyday.

Lab126 is a relatively small company, but maintains strict standards in product design. Hence its a great place to learn. The open culture also promotes access to information and resources to improve one's career - both technically and leadership qualities.
Amazon Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – June 25, 2017
Amazon Fresh was a decent place when I first started working there. A little slow and whatnot, not too much work but not too little, just right. That is until they switched the managers, everything then went downhill.
Benefits, relatively easy work to learn and handle
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – June 25, 2017
managers had a horrible tone when working. they would walk away as your in midsentense talking to them. they picked favorites and played around more than work. If you weren't a favorite your work day was horrible.
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) – Fall River, MA – June 25, 2017
High paced competitive atmosphere with stress levels through the roof to meet performance goals. Daily/hourly reports to senior leadership often to over stress the employee. When folks begin to regress they pile more on your plate until you can't continue.
Picker (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – June 25, 2017
I hated the job, that is nothing that I would like to do again. you have to be there at 5. you park so far away. sometime your badge does not go throw. you are on a time management. people hurt themselves all the time at that job. it is a super super fast job.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Lewisberry, PA – June 25, 2017
Learned how to drive an Order Picker and scan bar codes that are placed on the bins. Its a pretty cool facility to work in. You get a certain amount of Unpaid Time Off (UPT) points in case of tardiness.
Process Guide (Current Employee) – Joliet, IL – June 25, 2017
Working for a company like Amazon is great if your looking for job and need to make money. They have great benefits and other amenities to make you want to stay there. The 4-days shifts they offer are pretty sweet. A lot of people there are pretty awesome. Its actually pretty difficult to move up pass assistant manager unless you dont currently work for Amazon. A lot of employees will find themselves doing the same every single day. Constantly repeating the process with little to no change. There seems to be a lot of disconnect between different building, shifts, and departments. Wish the was more moving around and more teaching of skills inside the warehouse instead of doing one task everyday.

Picker (Current Employee) – Middletown, DE – June 25, 2017
Compensation is not suitable for required work. Workplace policy is heartless. No room for advancement. People have literally been there 15 years and are still in entry level positions. Its good a good place to work for students over the summer or christmas break as a college student but do not make the mistake of making a career out of this job.
Picker, Packer, Sorter (Former Employee) – Hebron, KY – June 25, 2017
This is a fairly common job for people looking to make some good honest money quickly. The workers were good and the pay was decent but it would be hard to advance unless you worked there for a long time.
Amazon Flex (Current Employee) – Springfield, VA – June 24, 2017
It was a long and hard journey knowing right from the start "flex" stands for short term. As a contractor carrier its a risk-but i was able to completing any task that was handed out to me. Surly, I have taken a good amount of experience away from this program and have improve my personal timing record -with each assignment i might add. In conclusion, you might see me popping on the grid here and there to collect a few digits -but its not a solution what I've been looking for and so others will have there chances. AS for me, it's time to move on.
Process Assistant (PA) (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – June 24, 2017
Dig in! Enjoy everyday with associates. Love the daily challenges. Would like to see more internal transfers and promotions. The company allows you to gain the knowledge to be an asset to any company especially Amazon. I love it!
Amazon is a great place to work for for boys and girls of all ages. the work is fairly easy and well organized. They offer great benefits and opportunities for all employees. The culture around the warehouse is pretty friendly and helpful. Pretty well managed workflow in all departments. The biggest challenge was always meeting customer expectations when even having to overcome the biggest barriers, but well worth the feeling of accomplishment over a hard challenge.
Amazon was a fast paced warehouse where all they cared about was getting orders together. Luckily, I was in ICQA so i just had to keep inventory of the warehouse. During peak season, they will cross train you in other departments that they are lacking in. It was an okay job. Breaks were awful and you were on your feet all day. The best part about the job were my coworkers. Drama of course went on but what job doesn't have drama. Overall, i would recommend this job but not for a career. It pays the bills.
