learning experience of something new for myself
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee), Dunfermline, SCTJuly 8, 2014
Pros: lots of opportunities
Cons: long hours
I would start work at 8am and finish at 6.30.
I would perhaps learn a new area or task if I was required to do so.
I learnt to be patient if I was training a new individual. I also learnt a lot about how the warehouse operated and learnt new computer skills.
I found management very informative and very approachable for any reason.
I built up great relationships – more... with my co-workers and also found if I required help I could approach anyone to ask for information.
Standing for long periods of time and sometimes learning new areas and computers could sometimes be a challenge.
I enjoyed the work and the people and found this employer treated their staff well with different fun activities and treats for break times. – less

Amazon - A Great Employer!
CSA [Customer Service Associate], CS Lead (Former Employee), Huntington, WVJuly 7, 2014
My time working at Amazon.com in their Customer Service team was time well spent. The most enjoyable part of the job was often the most challenging - assisting customers with their issues and resolving problems in new and creative ways. Later as a CS Lead, I was able to assist CSAs with both their professional and personal development.

enjoyable place to work
Inbound Associate (Former Employee), DoncasterJuly 4, 2014
Team meeting at start of shift look to see which task you were assigned to or if you was to be trained on something else I was trained to receive goods onto the system initially, I was then trained to cubiscan items this was to measure and weigh items to ensure the correct box was used or if one had to be specially made for it, and whether it was safe – more... for one person to lift or not.
I was then trained on stow, putting items of varying sizes into specified locations.
The line managers and area managers were always available and it was overall a pleasure to work there, safety was paramount and you was reminded constantly about safe lifting, not putting yourselves or your co-workers at risk of injury.
Although you had targets the training you received meant that you were able to achieve it after a week, and there was nothing hard about any of the jobs there – less

Favortism at its best
warehouse associate (Former Employee), Hebron, KYJuly 3, 2014
Pros: the pay is above minimum wage
Cons: short breaks, long hours on feet, poor management
Your job duties vary depending on where you are assigned to work. I learned how to sort products and palletize boxes. Management is a joke. Especially AMs. Favortism is rampant. They LOVE associates who are lazy and unproductive. They get away with anything! If you are one of their favorites and you happen to have a low rate, they can adjust your rate – more... for you. Time and time again I see associates who don't make "rate" still employed at Amazon.
Most associates are nice. You will encounter some unpleasant people but that is normal.
Hardest part of the job is standing for 10 hours every shift. – less

Fast Pace and Constantly Busy
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJuly 3, 2014
Pros: always meet new people.
Cons: management moves on too fast, you are a number not a face
A day at Amazon.com can be described as Non-Stop work and Fun.
With this company I became aware of the areas in which I needed to improve and did; for example when I began my career with Amazon.com I was a quiet and shy person and now I am loud and outgoing. Management with the facility that I was working at was alway changing; you got a taste of every – more... character type there. There were quiet manager, loud managers, aggressive types, goal oriented type. Very few managers stayed at the facility for too long; opportunities for management opened up quickly. There was always a good sense of camaraderie; you could always walk up to someone and strike up a contestation and never feel awkward or uncomfortable; it was always fun. There never was anything difficult about the job, once you got the hand of it; there is no stopping you, but the most enjoyable part of the job will always be the teaching experience you gain from doing the work yourself. Teaching a new batch of people every "Peak Season" is in and of its own reward. – less
