hardwork, intensive work, clean work
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 28, 2016
I was graveyard shift , it was the hardest part of the job.
It was continuously learning about safety, merchandise control, quality control, and work intensive.
To work with people of different cultures, countries and different ages was a good experince.
To make my job with quality within supervision and to be motivated for my supervisor or my co-workers was the mostly enjoyable part
Pros
two breakes of 15 minutes and 30 minutes for lunch
Cons
graveyard shift

I did not have a good experience with Amazon
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  West Columbia, SCJune 28, 2016
The environment was unsafe. The place is always hot, when break time came you had to walk almost a mile before you got to the break room then if you needed to warm up anything to eat the microwaves were not available so that sometimes took up your break time and your 30 minutes of Lunch time. Some of the co-worker did things that was not allowed and when going to management to inform them of such work habits nothing was done. Too many injuries and when one did get injury you were sometimes released from the company.

Working for Amazon was a fun but demanding job espically during peak season. Enjoyed the job & the people. The hardest part of the job was being inside all day.

Great job if you can work like a robot.

Demanding work pace; extremely repetitive labor. Staring at computer monitors with a beeping laser gun in your hand for ten hours a day.
Pros
Great benefits that start on your first day. 4/10s (3-day weekends).
Cons
Monotonous...

The most appreciable asset that amazon has to offer would be there ability to allow their associates an opportunity to create their work schedule to be flexible with their college schedule.

An uplifting environment from co-workers
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) –  Kennewick, WAJune 27, 2016
With such a large amount of employees it can be difficult for outside hired managers to handle and run a department they know as much about as the new hires in the summer. A very uplifting and positive environment is provided from the co-workers and veteran managers. Spending 8-10 hours on phones being berated by some very angry people can become taxing on a person, more than most think. But, at the end of the day, I loved every minute at that job and would give up a fair amount to be given a second chance with the company.
Pros
Steady hours, pay, and great people to work with
Cons
How easily things slip between the cracks

Good place for young kids to work
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Whitestown, INJune 27, 2016
Filled orders to be packed and shipped. 10 hour shift using hand-held scanner to locate and process orders. Management was not really there for you. They were impersonal and distant - the hardest part of the job. They just didn't want to help you out if you had problems.
Co-workers were easy to work with. They were the best part of the job. Long shifts walking 15 miles on concrete was hard! Doing a good job and co-workers' help were best part of the job.
Pros
Good co-workers that helped as you needed
Cons
long shifts, concrete floors, uncooperative managers

Fast paced, fun and exiting
Forklift Driver (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CTJune 27, 2016
Amazon worked as one of there many shipping facilities. It has a very clean environment and a very encouraging staff (always promoting success and fun). the biggest issue I've seen with amazon would have been the massive layoff in 2015 where they let go of about 3000 people in under a month.
Pros
learned how to drive fork
Cons
strict rules

Warehouse Part time worker (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXJune 26, 2016
Working in Amazon is a real challenge, the environment is very good, mates are very friendly, but you need to be standing through 8 to 12 hours is a row and it's no too easy sometimes.

It's all about the numbers
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  DuPont, WAJune 25, 2016
The Amazon motto is work hard, have fun, and make history and it is false. All they care about is the work hard part. The have fun goes out the window as well as their idea of fun is similar to the Army's mandatory fun days. The moment you try to have fun at work to keep things from being too serious, they get on your case and tell you to stop talking and get back to work. All they care about is rates and currently giving 100% isn't good enough for them. They want you to give them 120% or better everyday but that starts to take its toll when you have to work 10 hour days doing the same thing everyday because they don't know how to rotate your tasks for the week.
