PROBLEM SOLVER (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 April 2017
Typical day at amazon included receiving, stowing products The new heritage dc has minimum walking and light weighed products. You may be surprised by small lunch parties that your manager might treat you with if you perform well
Stower (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 23 April 2017
Amazon does not value it's workers and treats everyone as if they are expendable. They hold unrealistic standards for their employees and threaten them with their jobs if they do not work to these standards.
TRANSPORT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – ON – 15 April 2017
I loved working in Amazon. I felt it was like my second home. Lot of opportunities. I have learned many things at work like people management, leadership skills , open to opinions , etc.
When it comes to management, everything is balanced and ocean of opportunities to work inside Amazon. Every person is given importance.
The hardest part of the job would be, getting a load of unexpected work to do. But at end it is worth the services and salary they pay. You must learn to balance work and personal time.
The most enjoyable part of work is you are open to free culture. where you have no dress code, you are allowed to give your opinion irrespective of you level in the firm. You get to have fun. As the quote states "work hard , have fun and make history" :)

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 8 April 2017
It is a very fast-paced working environment where quantity is valued more than quality.Very long hours in a day. Pay rate is very good with benefits available. Very easy to get a day off but also very easily fire employees.

Picker (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 12 March 2017
this workplace has had a great vibe with helpful people. On a typical day is an everyday routine, come to work, do you job as told and make sure you get it done on time before the timer runs out. The workplace culture is simple but interesting people, all kinds of people. The hardest part of this job was having a timer that gives you very limited time to pick the product and give it to the packers for shipping.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 24 February 2017
Productive workplace no proper breaks to much pressure . If employees need to use the washroom have to wait for someone to come and cover there station which can take up to 10 minutes managers not very helpful all of the supervisors seem to be just standing around I guess that's what there job is
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 21 February 2017
This is not a job for the unmotivated. Shifts are long, and you are standing, walking or lifting something the entire time. It's great if you wish to get in shape, but gets very monotonous fast. Most of the management want you to personally succeed at the job, and will do whatever they can to make sure that you do. However, if you don't try to succeed, you won't be able to hold a job here.
Also, a warning to all potential thieves out there: You WILL get caught, and you WILL get charged for your thefts. There is even a TV that lists all of the reasons people got fired/arrested in the previous months (without giving any personal details of who the employee was of course).
3 day weekends, great benefits
10 hour shifts, 60 hour work weeks during the peak season
warehouse worker (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 20 February 2017
good for workers to get a lot of steam and stress of their heads and also the staff was very kind and caring also helpful in a lot of ways if needed help to solve problems. they never cared if you worked long hours or overtime it was up to you. safe work handling practices taught in training how to lift heavy objects and rotate your whole body when picking up boxes.
