I recommend to those with a great work ethic
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON11 October 2017
A typical day at work would consist of independent tasks, that require lots of rest prior to commencing your day. I personally learned that this workplace is a very diverse, place full of amazing people.

Order Picker (Former Employee) –  delta, bc1 October 2017
This place is the worse place to work. They treat you poorly and don't listen to anything you have to say. They are not a team company and only care about their rates.
Pros
nothing
Cons
everything

Area Manager (Former Employee) –  Redlands, CA30 September 2017
Working as an Area Manager with Amazon Fulfillment requires you to be on the move all shift. Everyday you walk in with a new goal, and what you do is to motivate your team to make it happen. Always fun and never a dull moment.

Excessive micro management of staff
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC30 September 2017
Felt like I was in the novel 1984. Everyone is encouraged to watch their coworkers and report on any bad behaviours. This creates an environment of mis-trust. Would not recommend this place except to those who don't mind Big Brother continuously watching you.
Pros
encourage staff activities
Cons
always looking over your shoulder

Cutthroat and Heartless
Receiver (Former Employee) –  BC27 September 2017
Really displeased with Amazon's zero tolerance policy of mistakes. My second week I made three mistakes out of five thousand items scanned into the warehouse and got fired even though I was on time every day, am very safety-orientated, and showed lots of initiative. Their standards are ridiculous, communication among departments/management is essentially nonexistant, would definitely say that this is not a good company to work for. Don't work here.
Pros
friendly employees
Cons
the hellish nightmare of this company

I would rather jump off a bridge
Picker (Former Employee) –  Surrey, BC20 September 2017
The absolute worst place to work. Ready to work with absolutely horrendous working conditions? Ready to never, ever have a life again? (Mandatory overtime).
Ready to work like an underfed horse for basic pay? Ready to start in an environment that gives not a single care in the world about you because you are nothing but a robot to them?
Amazon is the place for you.
Even if you're doing really well, if you fall to the lower half of the list they will bark at you about it.
I wouldn't recommend this job to a poverty ridden country... It's slave labour....
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything, I wish I was exaggerating

great workplace and ppl to work with
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON18 September 2017
Overall review working with Amazon, for the type of heavy workload being in a order picking machine, working constantly on your heavy steal boots all day picking and carrying heavy items that weighs more than 40 pounds at a long period of 10-12 hours a day, they should pay more for this type of job! $13.90 really??????????, More responsibility and most required attention & safety is at most priority when operating this heavy order picker machinery! I believe they should pay more than this rate that they require!
Pros
good environment and great ppl to talk to
Cons
short lunches

Good experience
Intern (Former Employee) –  Canada16 September 2017
A very result-oriented, continuous improvement focused work culture. If you work hard and make sacrifices, there are opportunities to advance. However, working for this company is not for everyone...

Associates are worked hard, and management is pressured to ensure that the rates are sufficient.

The pay is above average, but if you work 40 + hours (most managers work 50-60), it's actually not that impressive... Managers are not paid for mandatory / voluntary overtime...
Pros
Resume builder, Massive company that is still growing, Continuous improvement
Cons
Limited work outings / team building, Work life balance, Cafeteria is very limited, Discount is very low (Prime should be offered instead)

Easy to get hired untill you find the carrier you want
FC associate (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC13 September 2017
In all FC's the amount of work is unbalanced, area managers may put you on rate and work very hard to meet it, or they may put you in direct moving stuff around relaxing but it get boring after a while, rotation of jobs never happens no matter how many time you ask because the rate of quiting the jobs in first weeks very high and most associates quit like me get fed up and quit after a year or so. I don't recommend advancement or what they called it you getting same wage if you moving pallets around or problem solver which is very stressful job for most people, if you are lucky and get to process assistance position the amount of stress in this position not worth the money. In my FC driving pit is a must in bc min wage of driving pit same wage as process assistance however they justify low wage by having what they called great benefits its great in states but in canada all get basic healthcare and most other warehouses offer full package even the worse one offer extended heath package. If you have week to waste try it your self and see if you can have fun as Amazonian say
Pros
Benefits from day one piad trainning
Cons
Too many

Consistent pay, but not that worth it
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 August 2017
It started off good (because of the pay), however the long hours and job duties are very offsetting. The job is very mind numbing and painful to your feet especially.
Pros
free lunches sometimes, understanding supervisors
Cons
long hours on feet, gets boring, mind numbing, feels like you are worthless

Good company to start with and learn from.
Tier 1 Associate (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC29 July 2017
- It's very physically demanding job and after awhile the body starts to take its toll. I did everything from 12-15km of walk per a 10 hour shift, repetitive bending, lifting from 10 to 45+ pounds and so on.

- There's no seniority here, so everything is fair when it comes to schedules.

- Management and HR is good and They are there when you need them for anything.

- Workplace is always constantly busy and everyone has to do what they're assigned to.

Anyone who has worked shipping, picking, packing, sorting and etc for different companies will see this Fulfillment Centre in Delta,BC to be different and interesting.
Pros
Good varieties of food and drinks, Clean workplace, Transit accessible, Free Wifi
Cons
Long hours of walking
