Nice laid back environment, if you can handle talking to customers all day.
Kindle Customer Service (Current Employee), Kennewick, WAJuly 22, 2014
Pros: fun atmosphere
Cons: customers can sometimes be taxing depending on your personality
Amazon customers are generally happy, so as far as working at a call center goes, this is probably one of the better options available.

Amazon often has new things up their sleeve, so things are often interesting.

Managers are generally good to very good. Co-works have been friendly, helpful and encouraging.

Benefits are sub-par by my standards, – more... but do include low cost health care, small amount of stock that vests after a couple years and other benefits.

Pretty generous with Time Off and when/how you use it. You can call in sick after your shift starts, for example. But if you run out of Time Off, they do not like it one bit. – less

Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee), Lexington, KYJuly 22, 2014
Pros: ability to work unsupervised and the pay
Cons: office politics from the last manager
The clinic could see between 4 and 35 patients a day for work related and non work related illness and injuries. I had 8 different managers in the 5 years I worked there. The last manager became a micro-manager and this was the hardest part of my job. I established and kept the department organized and was given no recognition for the hard work put – more... into the department. I would say the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the associates and assisting them to get better. – less

Run away as fast as you can!
Stow (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 21, 2014
Pros: no drama, everyone keeps to themselves.
Cons: too many to list
This is only a job for marathon athletes. I worked in stow, which amazon will outright tell you, it's the hardest position they have. Pushing around a u-boat with 12 totes full of goods and stocking those goods into bins all night/day. Especially difficult when stocking larger items when there is nowhere to put them, cause all the bins are already full. – more... Go, go, go as fast as you can! Ambassadors, or "coaches" down your neck every hour. And breaks-what breaks? By the time you get to the break room, you immediately have to turn around to start trekking back to scan an item at the precise moment to avoid being written up for being late. Same with lunch. It's all rigged- managers can change your rate depending on if they like you or not. All the blue badges are nothing but butt-kissers on power trips. The work/life balance does not exist. On your off days, your body is hurting too bad to get out of bed, much less spend time getting household chores done, or spending quality time w/ family. I was so overworked and dehydrated, that even eating became a challenge. I do not ecommend working here, especially if you are a woman over 35-it's just too physically demanding, hot and overbearing. – less

Packer/Shipper (Former Employee), Chattanooga, TNJuly 18, 2014
Pros: positive work environment, free coffee, good insurence plans
Cons: short breaks, ten hour work days, boring work
If you like doing the same thing over and over again amazon is a good place to work. The hours are long and all the jobs are repetitive. After getting into a rhythm you can go on autopilot and wait for the shift to be over.
