Order Selector (Current Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – July 25, 2016
no recognition for a self motivated hard workers. pretty much about who you know and not what you know or what you can provide to the company as an individual. been there for over 2 years now, and its very rare to make it that long in this FC.
Sr. Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 24, 2016
Amazon is a great company with a vibrant, fast-paced culture. Compared to many companies, the level of responsibility and freedom to make decisions, is higher than it would be for equivalent positions elsewhere. Management tends to be an area of weakness, where many times leadership and team-building is de-prioritized over a highly competitive results-driven mindset. This can burn some people out pretty quickly.
I enjoy working at Amazon. However, I am having a tough time with the night shift, which runs from 6pm-4:30am. I am a wife, and mother of 3. I am one of the few odd ones, who enjoys all of the walking, and physical aspects of the job.
Good workout plan! Great HR team, as well as management. Always trying to keep you upbeat.
Long walk to get from back to front for breaks. Always feel rushed during lunch break.

(Customer Service Associate) Reserves (Current Employee) – Greenfield, WI – July 23, 2016
I love that I came across this job opportunity when I had. My youngest son had just turned 5 months and I was ready to return back to work but had been worried about leaving my baby so soon. The hiring process went quickly and smoothly, only downside to working from home is you have to travel to complete your I-9 registration.
Once hired and on my first day I began self progressed training, given a "due date" to have everything completed by. Easy as pie. Supervisors make it a point to introduce themselves and answer any and every question one could have.
After you have completed the beginning steps of training you are required to do a session of live calls to get a feel for what you are doing while talking to a customer. Following that is another session of training-then that's it!
The hardest part of the work is getting passed the bad days, not every person you talk to will be the most understanding or forgiving.
The most enjoyable part of the job is frankly in my case not having to leave my house and only working for a few hours a day to just a handful a week. I make my own schedule that works for my family.
staying at home, helping customers, having interaction with people
reserve position does not guarantee hours, no benefits included
Warehouse Associate/trainer/seasonal pa. I (Current Employee) – Moreno, CA – July 23, 2016
good job for first job experience,But pace you are expected to keep could be difficult for older employees,There is no recognition for hard work and no advancement based on effort.All employees make the same pay regardless of how hard they work or don,t. The company itself has good benefits ,nice lunch facilities, management changes a lot,you never know how long you boss will be there.
premiere packaging (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – July 23, 2016
Everyone including myself gets straight to work in their own little area can be frustrating sometimes standing in one spot that's the hardest part but you get use to it with time. What I enjoy the most working at this job is being able to have your own space .
you work in your own space everyone is helpful and about their work
its hot sometimes, the break doesnt feel as long, it takes a little to get to the break room due to how big the building is .
Process Assistant (Lead) (Former Employee) – Breinigsville, PA – July 23, 2016
Worked here for 2 years, advanced quickly. Now things are changing new management every month seems like. People were just unhappy. Pay was decent, holiday season was good money but a nightmare 60hrs shift during the holidays but easy money. Met some awesome people tho. Only a few managers care about the people and HR was a mess.

Scanner/Sorter (Former Employee) – Joliet, IL – July 22, 2016
Not fun to work at. How to scan and move totes properly. Management did not care for it's employees,nor respects them. Coworkers were extremely nice and kind. Hardest part was to scan 100 items in 2 hours every morning and being told you were not scanning enough items on time. Lunch was the only good part.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Breinigsville, PA – July 21, 2016
The actual job is easy but it is very physically demanding therefore it is a very tiring job. By the time you get home you just want to sleep. It is a 10 hour shift which makes it worse, maybe if it was an 8 hour shift it would make it less stressful. By the end of the day everyone is cranky and drained. Managers come and go so any time you get comfortable with your manager they will either get fired or get moved to different shift, building etc.
