Do not work here
Associate in Packing Depo (Current Employee) –  Schertz, TXApril 23, 2017
They may have great benefits but they're management and workplace culture is something to be laughed at. They work you until you are dry, then once you finally think you have a day off. They'll give you a 24 hour notice that theres mandatory overtime. If you have anything medical related happen to you, they wont cover you. Just take out the time they give you, such as UPT (Unpaid Time) and PTO (Paid Time-Off) which you accrue every pay period.

quick turn around
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 23, 2017
working as an FC Associate is fun and easy with average pay. But the company doesn't stop hiring people and there ends up being too many people all trying to schedual work on the same days. This is why there is a high turn over rate.
Pros
benefits, fun work enviroment
Cons
company over hires too many employees for flex shifts

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYApril 23, 2017
Amazon was a great place to work. The managers as well as my co-workers were really friendly and understanding. I would recommend Amazon for employment to anyone eager to work and make really good money!
Pros
Snacks, free coffee, events to boost morale
Cons
could sometimes definitely use longer breaks

Picker (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNApril 23, 2017
The job is fast pace , very tiring, leadership is poor due to lack of communication, the pay period is bi weekly, the health insurance is good but the company policy and benefits aren't all that great when it comes to your family or extreme weather conditions, they expect you to be there on your expected shift no matter what is in the way .
Pros
Insurance benefits
Cons
Poor communication, at will employment, strict company policy

A Stressful Culture
Full-time Associate (Former Employee) –  West Columbia, SCApril 22, 2017
Performance is the beginning and end to any day at Amazon. If you cannot preform your life will become very difficult. Management will only notice you if you do not meet expectations, don't expect any real relationship to be created desired. The culture is the same, it exist to promote performance, nothing more, and it leads to high turnover.

good benefits but not enough pay for work and management shows little attention to employees who work so hard.
Process Guide (Current Employee) –  Groveport, OHApril 22, 2017
packing,process guide, slam, kickout. feels like managers play favoritism. lots of heavy lifting and to much pressure put on one person at times when its really busy. managers wont help out and wont find someone to help even though you voice how busy the volume is to get caught up especially after lines go down or sorter goes down. I love all the other employees everyone of them were super friendly and down to earth since day one. we all try and help each other when possible because management wont.
Pros
co workers. benefits.
Cons
management. HR. lack of communication when things change.

Process Assistant (Current Employee) –  Moreno Valley, CAApril 22, 2017
its not as bad as the online reviews say, if you work hard and are able to stay on task you will have no problem making rate. Amazon has been the most stable place i have worked as far as set hours and ok pay.
Pros
paid time, control over your own hours, set work schedule
Cons
rate

It pays well, fast paced, has a on site medical care center. Hardest part of the job is balancing your work and family. Best part of the job is getting paid.

Mixed Feelings
Human Resource Assistant (Current Employee) –  CTApril 21, 2017
It is a love hate relationship with Amazon as I really enjoyed working here while at the time hate the culture. Most centers are chaotic and politics is an integral part of moving up in the company.
Pros
Swag, experience, free lunches sometimes, and flexible working hours.
Cons
Internal promotions are valued less than external applicants.

Becoming a sweatshop
Process Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hebron, KYApril 21, 2017
Greed driven. Starting to treat employees like machines. Not a fun place to work. It's all about creating a fast process then make it faster. Your just a number and nothing else.

Fast paced, part time work.
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDApril 21, 2017
I worked at an Amazon sort center which is a part time (3 to 4 hrs.) building. During peak season it is usually very busy. During the rest of the year it varies. Somedays it's busy other days it's slow and you have the option of not coming in or leaving early which is called VTO. Overall I found the job the be very repetitive and boring especially if you are scanning everyday. If you're working in other areas, like facing, inbound, sort slide, or problem solve the job may be more interesting and your day will feel like it's going by fast. For an entry level no experience job, it's a great way to gain experience and build your resume. In my area the starting wage was $12.50 an hour which is good for a warehouse worker.
Pros
Pay, good for a part time job.
Cons
Very short breaks, can be very boring at times, aching feet.

Stressful doesn't care about family at all
Amazon Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXApril 21, 2017
If it's not numbers it doesn't matter at all. At Amazon you will get wrote up for any and everything. I would not advise working here if you have children and want to spend time with them.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Doesn't care about family
