Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Jeffersonville, INOctober 20, 2014
its a decent job just too far out for the amount of pay. A typical day at work would be to clock in. Go to group meeting, then go get scan gun and start working. I learned how to work with others. Management is fairly decent, they don't stand over your shoulder. They only track you down when your off and your rate is down. Co-workers are friendly and – more... love interact with others. The hardest part of the job is just doing it repetitively with minimum breaks. The most enjoyable part of the job is leaving. – less

Amazon Financial Analyst
Financial Analyst (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 20, 2014
I worked 2 years for amazon as a financial analyst starting in Seattle and transferring to NY. For the most part I have had a good experience working for amazon with fair competition and hours. Every department seems to be unique but my growth opportunities were not as plentiful as I would have hoped.

Graveyard shifts with some fun
Seller Support Associate (Former Employee), BangaloreOctober 19, 2014
Pros: free lunch, free transportation
Cons: rotational night shifts
A typical day at work is log into your system and start pulling cases from the lobby to meet the days criteria and maintain your performance metrics. While your at it you will be learning how its like to stretch out your workload so its less stressful and maximizes your productive with minimizing mistakes and system or employee crashes. The management – more... hierarchy is open for everyone to interact on different levels and while you report to a specific manager you will be able to go on the floor and interact with other teams and other managers. The hardest part of what seems to be the greatest job is the rotational shifts that require working hours stretched from 10 in the night to 6 in the morning that is excluding the time for transportation, and when you think it can't get worse the shift changes to morning 8 to 4 in the afternoon in a blink. Which leaves you looking like a zombie at work and productivity marginally goes out the window. Repeat this over a course of time, you end up with a hay wired biological clock that has no set sleep timings or food timings. The greatest part of this job was the energy filled teams that brought in so much of fun while at work it just seemed to be everywhere for that 9 hour shift, keeping you entertained and energetic for some more of those customers to satisfy. – less

The largest retailer in the world
Receiver (Current Employee), Middletown, DEOctober 17, 2014
Pros: fast pace and friendly staff
Cons: short breaks/lunch period
The company sells everything under the sun and gets it to you quickly. Prices are reasonable and so is shipping. This is one of the most unique places I've ever been employed. It's a different culture, they think outside the box and it has brought a great diversity of people and technologies together. There are many good people who work at Amazon.
I – more... receive thousands of pieces of merchandise each day that are delivered to me. I take each item and code/load it into the Amazon inventory system. One of the most advanced inventory systems in the world. It is then moved to a stowing department where each item will get stored in an assigned bin.
Management is fair, will listen to your advice and work with you on how to better your production or show you how to do things easier.
Coworkers are all very good people who work hard and concentrate on their work. Very friendly staff. Hardest part of the job may be lifting a few heavy items
The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing when your rate is high and the department has met its goals. – less

A Day in the ER
Picker (Former Employee), Campbellsville, KYOctober 17, 2014
A typical day in the Er was usually very busy non stop. I learned so much while i was working there. I learned how to work codes, do inventory, put doctors orders into the computer, how to put a cath in someone. Management and co workers were wonderful... The hardest part of my job was having to tell someone there family member didnt make it. The most – more... enjoyable part of my job was knowing that i was helping someone!!! – less

Work/Life Balance=Career Limiting Move
Designer (Former Employee), Seattle, WAOctober 16, 2014
Pros: excellent healthcare
Cons: no work/life balance, frequent leadership changes
If you are lucky enough to have a good manager in a good org, you can have a great experience. This is very rare here. Almost everyone I knew the entire time I was there was overworked to the point of exhaustion. It was not uncommon to receive (and be expected to reply) to emails at 10pm on a Sunday. You are always expected to be available. Sick days – more... are not sick days. They are days that you *only* respond to email from bed. Almost all of the management team will tell you that they believe in work/life balance, but take this with a grain of salt. If you clock out at 6, you will not be promoted. And if you are not promoted after 2 years, they will start to make moves to have you removed. – less
