Great temp co-workers, horrible management
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONDecember 14, 2015
Pros: free lunches, great temp co-workers, 4 day work week
Cons: 10 hour shifts, leadership with no empathy
Loved working with my temp co-workers and making jokes during mandatory break times since most of the work outside of break time was independent. Leadership is not very caring or understanding if you are injured. If they deem your injury so severe that you can't work, they find some other reason to fire you that is completely bogus. The work itself was easy, but the physical toll is not worth the pay. There is zero room for growth and no job security.

very tiresome and tough job
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONDecember 4, 2015
Pros: frequent prize draws
Cons: long hours and non stop walk.
if you are person who can walk non stop for upto 10 hours then you are made for this job. Almost 25-30 km of daily non stop fast paced walk will certainly peel your weight off but you will certainly be left with frequent foot ache.

HIgh energy environment with low pay
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Amazon fulfillment (brampton)November 9, 2015
Pros: Order Picker
I work in Amazon as Warehouse Associate The work is physically demanding. Pay is low. Overtime is mandatory. Felt like a robot. Breaks were short because it took time to walk from warehouse to break room.

(i want the management of Amazon do picking at least one month in a year then they will know why people have so much complained)

Fast paced - great fellow associates - great benefits - fun Zone
Trainer (Current Employee), Delta B.COctober 9, 2015
Pros: cultural days, treats of the world, family BBQ's
Cons: Mandatory overtime
Typical day would be fast paced, new requests coming at you from all department equally urgent.

What I learned at Amazon is to prioritize in order of importance and schedule everything you need to do for the following day in your calendar, else you would never get any thing accomplished - starting everything and finishing nothing.

Co-workers at Amazon are what made the job fun, cooperative, hard working and always willing to help one another.

Hardest part of my job is leaving, don't want to, but need to pursue a new career.

Place to learn a lot
Software Development Engineer (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCSeptember 8, 2015
Best place to learn a lot and do a lot of interesting things. But the problem would be the non technical managers deciding architecture of the systems.

Good place for a temporary work position
Administrative Assistant-Imaging and Marketing (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONSeptember 1, 2015
If you are transitioning from school to a career job, and are currently unemployed, this is a good temporary job. However, the pay is not the best, and opportunities for growth are few and far between in the department I work in. Good work environment, with high regard for work place safety.
