Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC14 November 2017
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
Pros
Learn the hard way to make it in tough environme t
Cons
You are fired without given a chance. Unreaaonable

Very Bad Management
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Delta, BC11 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!

Longs hours

Very physically demanding
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Surrey, BC13 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.

Easy to get hired untill you find the carrier you want
FC associate (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC13 September 2017
In all FC's the amount of work is unbalanced, area managers may put you on rate and work very hard to meet it, or they may put you in direct moving stuff around relaxing but it get boring after a while, rotation of jobs never happens no matter how many time you ask because the rate of quiting the jobs in first weeks very high and most associates quit like me get fed up and quit after a year or so. I don't recommend advancement or what they called it you getting same wage if you moving pallets around or problem solver which is very stressful job for most people, if you are lucky and get to process assistance position the amount of stress in this position not worth the money. In my FC driving pit is a must in bc min wage of driving pit same wage as process assistance however they justify low wage by having what they called great benefits its great in states but in canada all get basic healthcare and most other warehouses offer full package even the worse one offer extended heath package. If you have week to waste try it your self and see if you can have fun as Amazonian say
Pros
Benefits from day one piad trainning
Cons
Too many

Consistent pay, but not that worth it
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 August 2017
It started off good (because of the pay), however the long hours and job duties are very offsetting. The job is very mind numbing and painful to your feet especially.
Pros
free lunches sometimes, understanding supervisors
Cons
long hours on feet, gets boring, mind numbing, feels like you are worthless

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.

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
