Amazon is really a great company. The company rewards excellency in productivity, quality and safety. You can also move up the ranks internally. The benefits offered by the organization is equally very good.
I gained good work experience while working at Amazon. 10 hour long work shifts. You are always on your feet. Management was alright. We had periodic meetings that was very informing about what was going with the warehouse. It was long hard working hours but it gave me further insist on the in and out of a warehouse job and learned a few valuable lessons about team work.

Amazon was convenient and helpful while in college. It gave a space for my leadership skills. I love learning the business side of Amazon. Along with working on projects to pitch Amazon Headquarters coming to Atlanta. I was the youngest on the team.

There is no chance to continue working for the company because of the poor organization of the hr. department. Mostly the communication between hr and employees are a lack of phone use. There is no chance for one on one consultation with hr. in the building because of the over use of security. There is a web site that is not useful to just to further more trouble that help.
FC Associate I (Current Employee) – North Las Vegas, NV – February 16, 2019
There’s numerous of employees so if one minds their business it’ll be a decent placement to work. There is too much favoritism so if one wants to advance in a position you can’t. Also one has to stand up the whole 10 hr shift, 30 min unpaid lunch two 15 min break. They give you unpaid time, paid time and vacation so use your time wisely.
Snack area, free coffee
Short breaks, back pains, stocks program unavailable
Pathways Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – February 16, 2019
One of the largest firms globally to work for. My experience at Amazon was extremely challenging at the same time highly rewarding. The learning curve is steep but with that comes high level of learning.
Problem Solver (Former Employee) – Robbinsville, NJ – February 16, 2019
you have 3 bosses they all have to yell at you if you make a mistake. if you use the bathroom for more then 15 mins they write you up. The CEO said he doesn't want people working there more then 2 years. so they make your job harder the longer you are there.
SEASONAL FULLFILLMENT ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Hazelwood, MO – February 15, 2019
Amazon offers great pay for the type of job responsibilities and it perfect for a second job or a student . My only negative criticism of the company is the lower level management is slightly dis organized and seems to lack experience supervising a large work force and tend to treat workers like children.
Hourly wage and attence point system
Lack of career path and disorganized lower management
Order Picker (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – February 15, 2019
you start off with a managers meeting and stretching, you grab your scanner and all your information is on the scanner. you go to work picking your items Amazon walk is 2 steps a second. you will walk 10-12 miles a day. the scanner will tell you where to go what to get and if your taking too long the manager will send a message to your scanner. you will get a 15 min break at 2 1/2 hours but it starts from your last scan and ends with your new scan after break. then youll do the same till lunch. after lunch you have another meeting with a different manager and it starts all over. the shift is 10 hrs.
work on your own, no manager over your shoulder
short breaks, they want over 110% of the daily goals
