Stock Person (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 6 June 2017
i really enjoyed working there, met new people, worked as a team very well. the hardest thing probably for me working there was that it was graveyard shift which is really hard, even if you are busy all night long.
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 2 June 2017
excellent human resource department well manage and safe production area, diverse community and good workplace environment, it is hard to walk for the entire shift 10hrs a day but i think it is the nature of work and should deal with it. i just have to move to another location that's why i left Amazon.
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 1 June 2017
Good pay and benefits. Community was very close knit, knew a lot of people by the time I quit. Managers were very understanding and helped out whenever there were problems. Work ranged from very easy to moving heavy boxes depending on the days needs. Lots of walking/standing up is required for almost the entire day.
Associate (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 May 2017
This company is good for people who want to stay on and grow Lot of benefit by the company like paying for education after one year of service Company is strict on performance but that is bound to be as it is customer eccentric organization hence they will like to go extra mile You are able to sit only during your breaks hence you need to be physically strong Promotion available to those who are good in performance and willing to grow
Just that long standing or walking time
Good culture and organisation, it not typical warehouse job
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 25 May 2017
Amazon was a great community, however working through the agency provided no job security and no benefits. We were constantly threatened with "points" going towards being let go, including requesting a sick day or going to a doctor.

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 10 May 2017
the workplace is incredibly unsafe, fire exits constantly blocked by pallets stacked over 6 ft. causing you to find another if there were a fire alarm. managers were very young and promoted only attractive girls, and after you call that out you will be targeted and singled out causing any associates to have no voice for themselves.

Working as a customer service agent helps me to realize what is the customer needs and wants. also to help satisfied their needs and solving their problem. In solving their needs it makes my work easier with other customer how to resolve fast .The hardest part of the the job is when you don't know what to do in getting the issue resolve . The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer leave happy that make me happy also. Finally with all the experience it make me realize that i can get the job done as fast as possible and make me become a better person.
Warehouse Associate outbound (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 5 May 2017
I had been working there for almost 3 years and I'll tell you it's the worst job I've ever had.
Maybe its different at other Amazon warehouses (I bloody hope)
Lots of favoritism, long hours, unrealistic rates per hour for productivity and quality and they change it ALL the time .(making the expected rate higher)
Injuries including work related injuries are treated as inconvenience's.
All I'm going to say is, most of the associates who have been there 3-4 years and who were all amazing associates and great co workers, all quit. Due to new system upgrades, new management and again favoritism .
What they don't get, is that the warehouse was an amazing work atmosphere prior to their "amazing sizemic upgrade" (construction upgrade) but ofcourse no one cares how the associates feel; just that they can meet more buisness needs.
The hours are long and emotionally and physically draining. They promise cross training (lies)There's not one associate who isn't exhausted or in pain throughout the day let alone the week .
Ridiculous attendance policies (point system) 2 doctors notes /year 1 doc note /yr if you're a temp. Just don't do it . Please don't do it . You'll hate it I promise !
Not like other warehouses; no phones allowed, no talking. Kind of dramatic, but YOU WILL be just a number to your PAs or managers. And really, they don't care ! And the only time they do is when u address them about it and you have to be agressive or they will not care ( sucks to say, but you'll see that it's true)
Every day I went to work , the older associatesmore... all told me " you work at a place like this ONLY when u don't have a choice". I was always advised to quit and find something else. And I'm Advising whoever sees this . Don't do it. It's not worth it.less
Amazing co workers! Some of the best people youll ever meet, two 30 min breaks, HRs cool .
Management, rates, long hours, favoritism, unreliable, ew ew ew .
