Amazon i hope your company crumble soon
Jober (Former Employee) –  Dallas,TxNovember 23, 2014
This is my personal experience on amazon the short time i was there,the better positions being held by whites not doing much but pretending to use a computer walking around every once in while.I seen very few minorities with a leadership vest.I got on as a seasonal hire yes they hire fast and people quit fast.The regular folks who work with you were pretty cool the guys on the floor with the full blue badges were the ones helping you get your job done they know the job duties.All the work there is hard they will have you running around picking orders making packages and sealing them you have a quota that must be met for that day.What happen to me during the department job selection process for each person they decided to put me in the hardest department the loading packages into truck trailer.Somes times the packages will not stop coming they come at a fast rate all different sizes and you must stack them right.After the 10 hour shelf was up i was sore mainly on the knees and feets and could barely walk back to the car i did this job for a few more days the pain went away after you went home and rest but the next day after some hours doing the same thing it will be over baring being too sore to walk my joints were shot.I made it through for a few days and came to the conclusion i will not be able to handle this job.They only need you for peak season most people will be let go even if you work hard.I'm going to say this job is only good for you if you're a regular when the work is slower.
Pros
fast hiring process, if you have staying power you might get hire, a good job to make some cash and quit later if you can last
Cons
too many whites in charge seems bias and prejudice.two lame 15mins breaks for the hard work involve.

Not for me !
Sales (Former Employee) –  MelbourneMay 18, 2015
I found this role quite monotonous and boring. I went into the role as a 'people person', needing to be with people, which I clearly stated, yet this role was behind a desk, constantly on a computer with the only people interaction being through a headset.
The days were long, the pay was terrible - but again, that was sold as a lot more attractive than reality.
Constant micro-management was really off putting.
A few relatives in the business that require HR skills, however, their unprofessional behavior is ignored because they're family - they make their own rules.
I left on good terms, but I would say that this is the worst role I have ever held - in many ways.
Pros
1 hr lunch break
Cons
long hours, low pay, boring............

Convenient but a bit under-pay.
general employee (Former Employee) –  Arlington Heights, ILSeptember 22, 2015
On a typical day I would normally have to call for work at the beginning of the day, 5 am would be my first call. Sometimes I would get lucky and have work from the morning and other days I would have to wait for second or third shift to be able to work. It was hard to make my 40 hours and maintain a job with this company. My co-workers will agree, the hardest part was having to work with them for so long having a ride from and to my house to work was very helpful and the company would offer it to the people who did not own a car.
Pros
free transportation
Cons
short breaks, sometimes no lunch, low wage
