Ambassador/Team Lead (Current Employee), Dunfermline, SCTMarch 31, 2014
Ensuring customer orders are sent out on time, fixing any issues that may occur, training other associates on different processes.

I have learnt how to adapt quickly to changing demands as well as working with a wide range of people with different abilities and how to adapt training to different people.

As part of the management team we all work together – more... and get the associates input on working matters to ensure everyone has a say and we all work together to achieve customer satisfaction.

I enjoy working with my co-workers we have come together as a good team that all have a laugh and all help each other with our given tasks.

The hardest part of my job is working constant night shift for the past 8 months.

Teaching other people the jobs within my department and seeing them progress and develop on what I have shown them. – less

ICQA-Inventory (Former Employee), Cayce, SCMarch 28, 2014
Pros: great pay, fun environment
Cons: too strict
A typical day at Amazon would be a day of counting, and making sure you're back from your breaks on time or you would get in trouble. If you ask me it felt like high school all over again because they stayed on you as if they was principals.

Being a packer
Warehouse Operative Packer (Former Employee), Hemel Hempstead, ENGMarch 27, 2014
It was a nice experience to work at Amazon, a busy warehouse, with interesting and friendly co-workers. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with the targets, but with proper learning and training, after a while it becomes easier. A typical day meant working next to a conveyor belt, and making sure every product was packed and labelled properly. Some might – more... find this repetitive, I really enjoyed it. Later on I was trained to other aspects of the packing department as well. – less

Waste of time.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee), Middletown, DEMarch 27, 2014
Cons: short breaks, compensation
The atmosphere is terrible. Although the building is still new, leadership is extremely poor. It appears to be a bunch of people with degrees in field that have nothing to do with Manufacturing, Production and Operations running the place. The only upside to this company is the connections you make with fellow associates. 99% of the time I'm working – more... my shift is spent complaining about the job to fellow co workers and finding another job ASAP. This should not be a daily conversation and all that one thinks about while on the job. I do not recommend anyone this job unless you have a degree or are able to obtain a Tier 3 position or higher. – less

Costumer Returns (Former Employee), Lexington, KYMarch 26, 2014
Pros: team work
Cons: no health insurance, temporary position
I have learned a lot about warehouse work here. Being able to bounce around and learn whatever job that needs to be done is very enjoyable. Many people that work there so it made breaks very crowded and hard to find a place to sit. The management is very important, they pump us up every night before we start our shift. The most enjoyable part is when – more... we set records for most items processed. – less

Learn a lot but no Work life balance
Senior Product Manager Intern (Former Employee), Seattle, WAMarch 26, 2014
Pros: brand, experience
Cons: long work hours, career progress within the company is slow
Amazon is a great place to work for Career advancement. You get to work with really smart people and you are given autonomy and ownership of your work. The flip side is that everyone works a lot of hours and do not really have a work life balance. People tend to burn out within a couple of years and move on to other opportunities.
