Productive workplace
Prime Now Associate (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAAugust 15, 2018
Amazon is a productive work place but offers no true job security, shifts are on a first come first serve basis. You are not guaranteed a shift as you have to make your own schedule and pick your own hours. The concept is good if you are a student/looking for a second job. Only managers are allowed full time positions the rest are part time. Pay is slightly above minimum (MA) but you get no annual raise, your pay stays the same.
Pros
Sometimes lunch is given, fun environment, fast paced
Cons
No annual raise, you make your own schedule, only part time is available

Working at Amazon
Fulfillment Associate and Receiving (Former Employee) –  Edwardsville, ILAugust 15, 2018
Amazon is a very fast paced, demanding place to work. The medical benefits are really good. Plus side is Health insurance is good as soon as you start.
Pros
Health Insurance
Cons
Treat everyone as a number and the favoritism is out of control.

Good Job
Full Time Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 15, 2018
The amazon warehouse job is a fast paced environment but really relaxed (as far as attire). They promote work life balance, advancement of education, etc. However I was let go after 3 months with no explanation.
Pros
Good pay, work life balance, education advancement.
Cons
They can ax you at anytime, especially if you aren't keeping up with quota.

Very fast paced
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Patterson, CAAugust 15, 2018
Rate is very important there, if you don't make rate you can get a write up. You do the same thing all day everyday. You are on your feet all day. They want you to work like robots. If you get hurt and go to AMCARE they act like you get hurt on purpose they are not thinking that you get injured just doing the same thing every day.
Pros
Great benefits, different schedules available, and flexible.
Cons
Short breaks, Salary is low, and is on your tough on your body.

Fulfillment Associate, Schertz, TX
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Schertz, TXAugust 15, 2018
The number of hours you get can vary a lot from week to week, from 50+ hours to almost nothing depending on sales volume. Its probably not a good place to work if you depend on your check to survive. It would have been better if not for mandatory overtime days. It's a four day work week typically, but Amazon holds one or two days not on your regular schedule hostage, and requires you to be there for those days when called on with almost no notice. It makes it difficult to find a second job to supplement the slow weeks.

They will train you into new job roles after a certain period in the role you are hired into.
Pros
Large break room with TVs, games, free coffee machine, and overall great people to work with.
Cons
Variation in number of hours you get per week

A Grueling Experience
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TX 76177August 15, 2018
Working at Amazon is a chore. When they're not depriving workers of bathrooms, they are requiring them to stand for upwards of 3-4 hours at a time, with no respite, with the constant threat of pay cut or termination lingering over your head if you aren't fast enough to meet their demanding schedule.
Cons
Short breaks, no bathroom breaks, constant threat of termination/pay-cut

productive and fun workplace with basketball hoop
Amazon Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Windsor, CTAugust 15, 2018
a typical day at work is basically working at our own pac. we do have to meet a certain rate for the week. the hardest part about the job is making sure we dont mess up when it comes to stowing things in the wrong bin. the most enjoyable part of the job is the breaks because we get to sit down. being on yor feet for 10-12 hrs a day sucks a lot. the management team is pretty good. they keep you updated for where you are for the week.

Fast Paced, action packed, and a daily workout to boot.
Sortation Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Milford, MAAugust 15, 2018
Fast paced work, requiring a lot of hustle to keep up with the volume of packages. Mostly good group of people to work with, but not a place for low motivation slackers. Some good managers, but not very experienced. Also not a good place to try to advance if you are an older worker.
Lots of walking, generally 6-10 miles in 5 hour shift. Lots of heavy lifting, no need to go to the gym after work.
Pros
team building give aways, small

hours
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLAugust 15, 2018
you are asked to work many hours while being under staffed while not allowing adequate break time. i would recommend this job as a part-time only job not a full time career.

Hard work and little reward
Amazon Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Robbinsville, NJAugust 15, 2018
You will be hired no matter what you're previous job experience is. The hours are long and grueling. You will be working 4, 10 hour shifts a week. Sometimes in the year, they will call for mandatory overtime, which means 44-60 hours a week, no exceptions. Little room to advance, and when you do, you will be bogged down with even more work and longer hours.
Pros
Benefits, Job Security, Easy to get in
Cons
Hours, job culture, physically/mentally draining

Extremely stressful environment
Amazon Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  DuPont, WAAugust 15, 2018
The work schedule is set nothing changes except for overtime. I learned how to stow ( put items that were brought to me from the trucks ) away in bins. The hardest part of the job is the rate and how the communication just wasn't there. The most enjoyable part of my job was my fellow coworkers
Pros
the pay
Cons
very little communication between manager and employee
