Picker (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 22 June 2017
You are trained very well so that you cant really screw up safety wise. Safety truly does come first too bad your needs as a worker and helping you be successful at your job comes last. They want you to be fast but just don't make a mistake. Pick at least 600 items a day but if one of them is wrong you get reprimanded and they wont tell you how to fix it going onward. You end up just making the same mistake until you are fired or want to leave. No one stays too long. Don't get too comfortable. If you think you are doing well you probably aren't. Loved working there too bad no one else did or no one else wants to keep you there. They are just looking for a turnover in associates. They don't want to keep you for too long....
do not work here unless like punishing you're self

The working environment was very good and productive. the team is very supportive. Salary benefits are good. The work you are assigned to is always according to your area of strength and you are always given new opportunities to learn something new.

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.
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 2 June 2017
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.
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 1 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.
Associate (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 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
Just that long standing or walking time
Good culture and organisation, it not typical warehouse job
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 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.
Talent Acquisition Consultant (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 May 2017

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 10 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.
Stock Clerk (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 9 May 2017
I earned sufficient money to fulfill my basic needs myself. It helps to increase my financial level. It is the one of the famous company in the North America. I am very happy that i worked in a a warehouse. I never expected in my life before.
