Stower (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 26, 2014
I would come in and clock in and we would have a meeting to say where the area we would be working at. Go to that area and report to the person in charge and get doing where they want wanted me to start at. Get merchandise and check for damages and scan in products and put them away.
Had a few free lunches, we exercised on breaks.
Was fast moving and it was move fast or scan faster.
Associate (Current Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – February 26, 2017
a typical day at amazon is managing all of the product. I'm in charge of making sure every package at my station is packed/fixed and leaves the sort floor. hardest part is all the liquid/hazmat damages we receive. the most enjoyable part of the job is learning new computer skills since I'm always using amazons software such as logistics. management just leaves us alone and lets us deal with our own issues, they just want it done.
other than that has a lot of great benefits and some good incentives when you show up for work everyday. Also has some good management but you just have to show up and do the work and benefits will follow.
Home Agent - Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 26, 2017
Amazon is the most difficult work from home job I've ever had. The shifts are long, and there is little flexibility until after peak season. Once you feel as though the job is getting easier, metrics take over and make it even more difficult to handle. Amazon is ALL about metrics. Their standards seem almost impossible to meet.
Chat Representative (Current Employee) – Work at Home – February 25, 2017
Communication is not enough. No say in changes which are made. Performance driven. Many things could have been better. Conversion is offered after four months which makes an associate permanent but that is not guaranteed. Pay leaves a lot to be desired. I love being able to work from home
Order Selector (Current Employee) – Dinwiddie, VA – February 25, 2017
I work nights and weekend shift. I have learn how pick orders. Management is pretty reasonable. The hardest part of my job is that they don't give you enough hours. I enjoy interacting with my team members.

Associate (Current Employee) – Schertz, TX – February 24, 2017
I have worked for Amazon for 4 months. It is honest, hard work. You can come to work in very casual clothes and the people that work there are very nice. You will be standing, lifting, bending, kneeling for 10 hours a day, which makes it very difficult to function after work. I come home exhausted. It is good exercise, a decent living, just not a job I can see myself doing for a long period of time.
Good atmosphere for large warehouse environment type of job
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 24, 2017
Nothing about the job is difficult and it is not much to meet the scan rate goal they ask for. Shift starts off with A short briefing of the work load followed by stretches. The work is not difficult to do but the hours are short only four hours a day on average for part time. On occasions there are opportunities for extra work but they a far and few between. The dental and vision is great for only about 20 hours a week and the pay is decent at $12/h. The management could be better and a little more open when they decide to change things on the fly. Overall a pretty good work plaace. My only complaint or the few hours outside of holiday.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 24, 2017
Amazon is a job where you are on your feet all day, everyday. The workplace was very busy during the day, everyone is moving around. The hardest part of the job is that you have very little breaks for a long hard day at work. The enjoyable part was competing and scanning most of the items.
