loved the atmosphere. it was fun working there. great co-workers. i learned how to handle a package and box it up fast and place on the conveyor belt. for it to be shipped on time.2- 30 min lunch breaks. they have nurse office on-site, they didn't have no dress-code. I enjoyed it.
you can't have your cellphone with you at all times.

Hi, I am updated/informed often by the company which I appreciate. This shows that Amazon wants everyone to be informed and are concerned for the safety of their workers. I enjoy the co workers' spirit to help enjoy the job more. The hardest part is traveling long distance and working 10 hours a day.

Working at Amazon was great, all the free coffee and bottled water you want.I would leave my home to be at work before 9am. If you have to buy steel toe boots make sure you get a size larger than your regular size just to be comfortable.

No matter how hard you work to prove yourself, you are never appreciated. They don't care how exhausted you are, you must meet the rate, if you don't you get warning, the third warning ...termination, even if you are regular employee with full benefits, so don't take it for granted you are secure. They keep hiring and firing. There is no second chance for mistakes you make, you will just guided out of fc..thats AAMAZON
Learn the hard way to make it in tough environme t
You are fired without given a chance. Unreaaonable
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 12 November 2017
After applying to a specific location and having the New Hire Orientation; that specific location two weeks following said it no longer hiring in that location but another still has ours available.
Keep in mind that everyone who got hired at this specific location has chose their hours. Those at the orientation from the other location too had choose their hours. So after two weeks they email saying that the only hours available are night shifts at the other location and not at the specific location!
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 11 November 2017
The benefits and salary is the only good thing in there. The management sucks a loooot. They will hire new people and not even a month later, they will fire them just because they are not reaching the quota. I mean, they've only been there for a month and they will receive warnings already. It should be expected from them because they are still learning. It's like amazon thinks the people will do what they want them to do just because they work for them. And what's with the ratings??? It's bs!
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 13 October 2017
The job was very physically demanding and would not be fit for someone who can not continuously bend, squat, or walk for a long period of time. You were not allowed to keep your electronics with you in the inner lunch room.

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.
Area Manager (Former Employee) – Redlands, CA – 30 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.
