A good place to work
Packer/Shipper (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 18, 2014
Pros: positive work environment, free coffee, good insurence plans
Cons: short breaks, ten hour work days, boring work
If you like doing the same thing over and over again amazon is a good place to work. The hours are long and all the jobs are repetitive. After getting into a rhythm you can go on autopilot and wait for the shift to be over.

Productive and work-friendly
Picker/Packer (Former Employee), Milton KeynesJuly 17, 2014
Pros: surprise free smoothie day/ chocolate fountain
Cons: long hours in excruciating heat
A typical day at work is just a regular day, start at 8 and work till 10.45 then 1st 15 min break in the canteen, then back to work at 11 till 1.45 from working different sections and on different floors. Then at 1.45 a half hour lunch break to which we chill in canteens or outside in the smoking area then back to work from 2.15. Then work from 2.15 – more... till 4.30 then the last break of the day for 15mins, 20mins if the heat in the FC is near 30 degrees. Then same routine, working on different floors in different sections. Then back to work from 4.45/50 till 6.30 when work finishes. I learned alot about how the company works to it's best for the customers and their needs. The management there were productive, always keeping the workers on their toes. Certain co-workers were rude and incapable of working with, but the majority were friendly and hardworking. The hardest part of the job is being on your feet for too long of the 10 1/2 hours we are there and lastly the most enjoyable part of the job is working in the J/H sections on Multis as it makes your targets go up also you get more done throughout the day. Would definitely recommend working here. – less

Stower (Former Employee), Murreesboro, TNJuly 15, 2014
Pros: thanksgiving dinner
Cons: short breaks, long hours
It was a very physical job, with long work hours. Our managers were very helpful when it came to problem solving. The most enjoyable part of working there was the Thanksgiving dinner our managers provided. The hardest aspect of working there was the short breaks and having to walk a mile to the break rooms.

worst job I ever had
Stower (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 12, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: everything else
All they care about is how fast you work.
Since your working with a scanner all day, they know how your performing & where you are every second.
You fast walk about 20 miles a day for 10 hours, 4 days a week.
You get 2 15 min. breaks on the clock, & 1/2 hour for lunch off the clock. If your even one min. late getting back from break or lunch, you get – more... written up.
If your not working 100% or more of what they expect, you get written up.
Leaving is like going through airport security. – less

Productive Fast Fun Pace
Stower (Former Employee), PAJuly 12, 2014
Pros: great overtime, and free time off after two weeks
Cons: maintaing your rate
I have learned a lot working at Amazon such as what products are important what goes to what location. Also Management is very organized there , they care about there workers. The hardest part of the job is maintain your rate, once your rate is at a low level, its a write up and considered possible termination.

It was hard work and long hours.
Batch Packer (Former Employee), Lexington, KYJuly 11, 2014
I usually had to be up by 5am to be there at 6:30am, traffic was always bad. I learned basics on how to scan and arrange items. The management was alright if you could find them and we weren't allowed to really converse with the co-workers apart from our breaks, although that suited me fine, but overall the co-workers were nice. The hardest part was – more... probably standing for so long and getting up super early however I really didn't mind after awhile. The most enjoyable part was the work, sending off the orders wondering who it was for and imagining scenes of when the package arrives and I am sure that sounds very silly but it was my favorite part and kept me going all day. – less
