Amazing at first..Until a few weeks in.
Associate (Former Employee) – Easton, PA – December 8, 2018
The first time you walk into an Amazon Fulfillment center it's like walking into Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. It's so amazing to see all of what goes into just one customer order. But don't let the glamour fool you. There is so much more "under the hood" once you start working there and actually see what is going on and how unorganized some of the management is it will make your head spin. Rate is a HUGE deal at Amazon, if you don't meet rate your area manager and PA's (Process Assistants) with be hounding you constantly about it. I was even told by someone that they got written up for being less than under 100% for the week they were at 99.08%. If you're not doing 100% per week they will find you and talk to you about your rate, yes. Even if it's at 99.08%. They will try to accommodate to what fits you best. Besides that, Amazon is not a place for everyone if you thrive in fast paced work environments this place is for you. If not.. Well better go find another job.This is why they will pay up to 95% of college after 1 year of being at the company. Not everyone wants to stay Amazon, and those who do, either move up in the company or stay a Tier 1 associate. I hope this helps some of you out there and gives you more of a concrete answer if you should work here or not. Have a good one!
Three breaks, the pay is really good, The other co-workers are what make this job really worth it, I've met some of the most amazing and diverse people that I'll probably ever meet, They truly make the normal 10 hr shifts go by quickly
During peak season expect Amazon to be your new home, they will make you work up to 60 hours in a week, The HR at the fulfillment center I worked at was terrible, they always treat the associates as if they are less valuable than they are, Even some of the managers have a problem with HR and are treated the same way, Use your PTO UPT and vacation time very wisely
