Amazon
Picker/Stower (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC16 June 2017
Working in amazon is great. Great people and great work, but favoritism is seen there. They don't give equal opportunities to other people. They tend to favor a certain batch of people.

It's fun working at Amazon and finding new opportunity. People find their growth and learn something new with the time.

Working at Amazon is like you are learning something new on daily basis. It's simply easy to work and working schedule is little different than other industries which is beneficial for employees.
Pros
Good pay rate, other benefits
Cons
Mandatory overtime

Work life not great, too much of a hassle
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON9 June 2017
Work is better operating a machine and not working in the aisles. If you get hired, they have good benefits and pay, amazing benefits but should be greatly qualified.

fun place to work at
Stock Person (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC6 June 2017
i really enjoyed working there, met new people, worked as a team very well. the hardest thing probably for me working there was that it was graveyard shift which is really hard, even if you are busy all night long.

excellent human resource department well manage and safe production area, diverse community and good workplace environment, it is hard to walk for the entire shift 10hrs a day but i think it is the nature of work and should deal with it. i just have to move to another location that's why i left Amazon.

Warehouse shipping clerk
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON1 June 2017
Good pay and benefits. Community was very close knit, knew a lot of people by the time I quit. Managers were very understanding and helped out whenever there were problems. Work ranged from very easy to moving heavy boxes depending on the days needs. Lots of walking/standing up is required for almost the entire day.
Pros
Good starting pay/benefits
Cons
Harder to move up in the company

Good place to work
Associate (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON25 May 2017
This company is good for people who want to stay on and grow
Lot of benefit by the company like paying for education after one year of service
Company is strict on performance but that is bound to be as it is customer eccentric organization hence they will like to go extra mile
You are able to sit only during your breaks hence you need to be physically strong
Promotion available to those who are good in performance and willing to grow
Pros
Just that long standing or walking time
Cons
Good culture and organisation, it not typical warehouse job

Agency sucked
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON25 May 2017
Amazon was a great community, however working through the agency provided no job security and no benefits. We were constantly threatened with "points" going towards being let go, including requesting a sick day or going to a doctor.
Pros
Free lunches, raffles, nice management
Cons
Hard work, long hours

Unsafe and unprofessional
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON10 May 2017
the workplace is incredibly unsafe, fire exits constantly blocked by pallets stacked over 6 ft. causing you to find another if there were a fire alarm. managers were very young and promoted only attractive girls, and after you call that out you will be targeted and singled out causing any associates to have no voice for themselves.
Pros
Friendly Co-workers
Cons
Managers were very Immature and young
