Sortation Associate (Former Employee) –  Wallingford, CTJune 26, 2017
Shift management (8p-1a) did not appear to be in sync, or knowledgeable in regards to exit strategy regarding safety of all employees.

Work culture was at times very verbally ignorant & uncomfortable. Some employees were laid back beyond reason and not respectful of co-workers. Management totally clueless.

Great Benefits No Energy To Enjoy Them
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 26, 2017
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.
Pros

RF Systems Engineer - Desense design (Current Employee) –  Sunnyvale, CAJune 26, 2017
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.

Decent at best.
Amazon Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAJune 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.
Pros
Benefits, relatively easy work to learn and handle
Cons
New Management, expect lots of OT

rude unprofessional managers
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAJune 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.

Very Tough and stressful
Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Fall River, MAJune 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.

Big Warehouse
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Lewisberry, PAJune 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, ILJune 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.
Pros
Health Insurance, 401(k), Stock, Monthly Bonus, Time Off
Cons
Management, Lack of Communication, Repetitive Job Tasks

Not a long term job
Picker (Current Employee) –  Middletown, DEJune 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, KYJune 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.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long hours, far from Cincinnati

Amazon Flex (Current Employee) –  Springfield, VAJune 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.
Pros
home route

Fast paced work environment with great co-workers.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVJune 24, 2017
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.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
sometimes too many workers, overcrowded.

WAREHOUSE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCJune 24, 2017
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.
