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

Great Morale, but lack of advancement
Amazon Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Grand Forks, NDJune 30, 2014
Pros: great morale, holiday work made fun
Cons: lack of good judgement from management
The job at Amazon was great, steady, and actually pretty fun. The work day could be busy or slow, you really never knew. The day was always full of surprises. The customers I spoke with on a daily basis were fairly reasonable and I enjoyed speaking with them. Although, I thought that the Hiring and Advancement at the workplace lacked good judgement.

Decent pay/benefits, but...
Warehouse Associate/Process Assistant (Current Employee), Hebron, KYJune 30, 2014
Pros: pay/benefits
Cons: everything else
Amazon.com pays fairly decent-they try to stay in the 50th percentile of employers in the area-and the benefits are great, but the building I work in has turned in to a military style, work like a machine, don't think just do, sweat shop. Avoid if at all possible.
