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

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

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

One of the best company to work with
TRANSPORT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  ON15 April 2017
I loved working in Amazon. I felt it was like my second home. Lot of opportunities. I have learned many things at work like people management, leadership skills , open to opinions , etc.

When it comes to management, everything is balanced and ocean of opportunities to work inside Amazon. Every person is given importance.

The hardest part of the job would be, getting a load of unexpected work to do. But at end it is worth the services and salary they pay. You must learn to balance work and personal time.

The most enjoyable part of work is you are open to free culture. where you have no dress code, you are allowed to give your opinion irrespective of you level in the firm. You get to have fun. As the quote states "work hard , have fun and make history" :)
Pros
fun as well as work. Balanced culture
Cons
Little pressure with deadlines
