Good company on the outside
Onsite Medical Representative (Former Employee), Fernley, NVNovember 13, 2014
Pros: nice benefits and pay
Cons: not sure if you will be employed from one day to the next, management does not stand behind employees
Amazon is a good company and does pay well, however an employee never knows if they are going to have a job or not everyday they come in. Management does not stand behind their employees and most co-workers are out for themselves.

Packer/Shipper (Current Employee), San Bernardino, CANovember 13, 2014
Pros: manageable benefits, stocks given, guaranteed 40 hr work week
Cons: small room for advancement, lots of favoritism, lack of consistency
cool place to work if a guaranteed forty hr work week is what you need. Manageable pay. Raise every 6 months. Paid time off available. Always on rate (productivity monitored) Best part of the job is you'll meet really cool and diverse people.

Very good job, hard work but worth it
Problem Solver (Former Employee), Hebron, KYNovember 13, 2014
Pros: good pay, great benefits, fairly easy work
Cons: working nightshift, getting shift transfers
The job was very physically demanding at times but it paid very well and there was always more jobs coming available, or new things to be trained in so it kept things fresh. You were guarunteed a raise but it topped off. But it was very good pay, plenty for me and i hand't topped off yet. It was very easy to learn everything and there was always work – more... to be done, and usually overtime offered. – less

Packer, Picker, Stocker, Quality Controller (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNNovember 13, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: employee turn over
good company to work for, it's just too much turn over, but that's the way its designed. the hardest part of the job was making the hourly rate. the company changed the app on the computer so that you would not know what your rate really was. i really enjoyed making the rate.

Temp Job
Sorting (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNNovember 12, 2014
Amazon was only a temporary job that I worked during Christmas. As soon as Christmas was over they let all of their temp people off. If you was hired on full-time it seem like a great environment to work for. I would go in at 7pm and get off at 7am. I was a sorter and stayed in one spot but was still mobile. You pretty much stayed to yourself and worked – more... on getting the orders out. I much rather be involved with people. – less

Very demanding
Boxer (Former Employee), Hebron, KYNovember 12, 2014
Pay was good but you definitely had to work for it. Too demanding of a job when you have a family. Not the type of work for everyone.

It's a long day buts goes fast. Its a fast past environment with hardworking associates that are satisfying customer orders. Management is doing everything in their power to help associates to get customer orders out on time. So in turn these customers will become returning customer.

fast productive place to work
Picking and Packing (Former Employee), West Columbia, SCNovember 12, 2014
The company provides things for it's employees most other companies don't free of charge. Such as gatorade, aspirin. bio freeze, feminine products. The actual Managers of Amazon it's self are fair and care for their employees, but the staff management group that it uses to recruit people does not. They are rude and bias
The hardest part of the job is – more... the mandatory 60 hour work weeks during peak which are dulled out in 12 hr shifts.The best part is hitting your goal and the recogniztion that your team receives.. – less

working at amazon was the best experience the work was easy and the pase was face. The work at amazon doesn't really give you time to get sleepy or slack off on your work.my co workers where all decent but what matter most was getting the work load completed.the hardest part of the job is the work conditions such as weather.
