Needs to embrace standardize training over "tribal knowledge" training.
I began working here after having been assured that my education would play a key role in deciding factors for advancement. This is 100% untrue. Amazon doesn't care how educated you are, advancement is based on seniority and favoritism.

Working at Amazon can be tough when you first start working there, but it gets easier the longer that you work there. The hardest part of at Amazon is getting used to having to do the same tasks over and over.
This is a very challenging place to work and the turn over rate is unbelievable. The salary is is not commensurate to the work that is required. The CEO needs to revisit a number of issues about the work environment and the balance of management as it relates tows to ethnicity.
Good For The Pocket, Bad For The Natural Sleep Schedule
Packer (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – June 16, 2018
I worked the late shift and I would get there and use my ID card to get in and clock in for work. we would stretch and depart into our job stations... we would work for so many hours then have a break the finish what we started and clock off.. during the holidays we would have over time. they are very strict on following the rules so don't break any. if you want to move up, just say so and prove your work ethic and you'll be noticed.
great pay, great benefits, satisfying work
sort of far away, tiring if you aren't used to the work load
Productive and functional workspace keep up the good work

Full-time Fresh Associate (Former Employee) – Vernon, CA – June 16, 2018
Very challenging work considering its physical effort and tolerance working most especially at chilled and the freezer.
Hoping the company would state flexibility and more choices straight at the hiring process for some wokers are willing to work at the freezer & chilled without any problem so do the wage rate may differ for them giving them more favor and rewards for doing so.
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 16, 2018
amazon is pretty straight forward it is a fast pace working job and you most learn to find things quickly with being alert that you have found the correct item being a picker. They allow 15 minute brakes and they give you more than one a half hour lunch, and it the dress code is pretty laid back and the pay is just as good the managers are friendly and make sure we are prepared for work with stretches. Also allow us to leave if we sick and depending we how long we have worked.

First off the benefits they offer is great considering you get them day one and dont have to wait 90 days like many companies. There is a lot of room for advancement. So far i am liking the job, hopefully i can improve and move up.
