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

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

Good company to start with and learn from.
Tier 1 Associate (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC29 July 2017
- It's very physically demanding job and after awhile the body starts to take its toll. I did everything from 12-15km of walk per a 10 hour shift, repetitive bending, lifting from 10 to 45+ pounds and so on.

- There's no seniority here, so everything is fair when it comes to schedules.

- Management and HR is good and They are there when you need them for anything.

- Workplace is always constantly busy and everyone has to do what they're assigned to.

Anyone who has worked shipping, picking, packing, sorting and etc for different companies will see this Fulfillment Centre in Delta,BC to be different and interesting.
Pros
Good varieties of food and drinks, Clean workplace, Transit accessible, Free Wifi
Cons
Long hours of walking

Okay work... Just don't make a mistake...
Picker (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC22 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....
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
No desire to help you succeed

Picker/Stower (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC16 June 2017
Working in amazon is great. Great people and great work, but favoritism is seen there. They don't give equal opportunities to other people. They tend to favor a certain batch of people.
