Prepare to walk 15 miles a night.
Warehouse Laborer (Former Employee), Lewisberry, PAAugust 15, 2014
Pros: physical, pretty good pay, nice people.
Cons: hot, dusty, dirty, dangerous, and deceptive.
While it was one of the most physically grueling jobs I have ever had, I found the Amazon employees to be upbeat, friendly and helpful. The SMX staff however is an entirely different story, and between the staffing management's attempts to throw accountability for on the job injuries to out of work activities (You fell off of the step stool and sprained – more... your ankle. You sprained your ankle before? Must be an old injury.) and willingness to lie to your face in regards to your moving to a fulltime position with Amazon (this happens to anyone who is hopeful of getting a fulltime position), and the work environment (Clean but hot with no air conditioning, constant PIT movement), I wouldn't work here again for twice the pay unless being hired directly by Amazon into a fulltime permanent position. – less

Packer (Former Employee), Cayce, SCAugust 12, 2014
Pros: free snacks, pay
Cons: short breaks, and long walks
A lot of walking, short breaks, fun co-workers. You had so many temps you were hard to be remembered if you wasn't loud. A lot of very young workers. The hardest part was the standing for 10 hours.

FC Associate (Former Employee), Carlisle, paAugust 10, 2014
Picking, packing, shipping and loading is the typical daily routine. Learned how to fulfill orders for customers. Management and co-workers were okay to work with. Nothing was hard about the job, and the most enjoyable part was loading trucks.

It was my first ever experience in a ware house. It was very organized on where things were and what you were doing. You did your job and tried to always improve.

SMX (Former Employee), Nashua, NHJuly 23, 2014
Pros: job
Cons: job
It's a temp to conversion job. You do everything they do but for $10.50 for 1,200 Hours. If you're bad you're fired, if you're good you're held on and then potentially converted or let go.

SMX/Amazon
Warehouse worker (Former Employee), Patterson, CAJuly 1, 2014
Pros: air conditioning in the whole building, free gatorade and coffee
Cons: 15 minute breaks did not include the 10 minute travel time, from your assigned department to the break room.
My typical workday involved endless shelf stocking.
During the first week on the job i was trained in powered industrial equipment however i was not given any opportunity to become certified.
Management would tell each temporary employee that we would be trained in each department however when one department needed extra hands several temps were laid – more... off and new hires were brought in.
Most Amazon employees didn't have any time for answering questions from any temps.
The hardest part of the job was keeping your sanity between the constant threat of losing your job for not making metrics and the endless inventory replenishment with little shelf space for many items.
The best part of the job was the 10 hour days, 4 days a week work schedule. – less

Decent work but awful management
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Murfreesboro, TNJune 20, 2014
Pros: decent pay
Cons: boring work, deceptive management
I worked at an Amazon warehouse under SMX. The management will intentionally lie to you and keep you as confused and misinformed as possible. For example, I was offered a bonus after completing 30 days. I was originally told I would receive the bonus on the paycheck the week after qualifying for it, but then they decided to not process it when it should've – more... been, so I received it a week after when I was originally told I would. Also, the staffing office likes to tell you they cannot answer your questions, referring you to the warehouse office, and vice versa. In general, you feel like you have to stay on top of them just to make sure they aren't going to cheat you out of your money; not a very comforting feeling, and stressful to work under. The job itself was very boring, packing boxes or picking/stowing items for 10 hours. The pay was decent, at $11.50/hour. They hire anyone who walks in their office, so you work with a variety of individuals. I would not recommend working at SMX unless you have no other options. – less

Cool place to work if you like being behind the scenes, and pushed hard.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), San Bernardino, CAJune 17, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: breaks, lunch, and attendance system.
Work begins with stretches and team break-off's, and were sent to go pick. We have two 15 minute breaks and a 30 minute unpaid lunch in four ten hour shifts a week. Management could work on attendance rules, co-workers are great. The hardest part of this job is keeping up rates. In some circumstances it is nearly impossible. The most enjoyable part – more... about it is the pay. – less

Warehouse Picker (Former Employee), Murfreesboro, TNJune 11, 2014
Pros: looking at all of the amazon merchandise
Cons: they're insane!
To succeed with SMX/amazon one must be 19-20 years old and have the body type that is congruent with being a marathon runner. If you do not fit this description then don't waste your time because you will be run out of there by the SMX people that walk around with their clip boards--following you around and giving you their interpretations of how to – more... succeed. They're expectations of ordinary humans are insane! – less
