An alright place to work if you can dedicate yourself solely to the company.

Amazon isn’t a great place to work. The hours are long and tedious, and the three days you have off arent really what you think. You definitely won’t have a ton of time to yourself, especially not when they enter their peak season or prime week, where you can expect to work 60 hour weeks, likely 4-5 weeks in a row. If not more, should your FC management get permission to extend it. All being said, if the pay was worth it, it probably wouldn’t be as much of an issue. But with a starting wage that, at least in my area, wasn’t even livable, it’s really hard to convince yourself to go back to work day in and day out. Make no mistake, no one in the work area will care who you are, unless your rate is amazing or you go out of your way to cause issues. You’re under constant surveillance, so best of luck if you say or do anything big brother doesn’t like.
Tons of overtime
Long hours, weak starting wage, disorganized management, high pressure

Overall they deman alot from you physically, you are on your feet 10 hours of the night and are not allowed to sit. those employeed throguh the agency dont get same perks as employees hired straight through amazon and must keep their rates up all the time or should be worried about getting let go. During peak they do a mass hiring and afterwards a mass firing so keep your rates up and dont get pointed. have to kiss up to the managers to have a secured job.

Long hours relentless "rates" for the associates to meet miserable work environment high turnover because people cant stand it low pay people get hurt constantly opportunities for advancement are few and far between and many higher positions are filled from external sources
Well mantained workplace with very well sanitation and friendly environment

Here in amazon i learned to be hardworking and it was a good place to learn responsibilities and to be a good person. Here i become passionate towards my work and feel comfortable to do long shifts of work.

If you are not a people's person then this is the company for you. Just do your job and go home. You don't have to interact with anyone. Whole system is supported by IT to track your activities. Managers have very less say about your day to day activities. Overall, good culture but to rise you have to be a part of the group else you are left out like in any other company. This company has its own share of a** Hol**. Pay is less than 4-5$ than its counterparts but benefits are good.

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.

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
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.
