the worst
Worker Bee (Former Employee) –  YYZ4 Brampton14 December 2018
Terrible place to work. You are given a cell block to scan products in all day for 10 hours a day, no music, no interaction. Heaven forbid if you make conversation with the person beside you. If you do your productivity will go down to less than %100 and you will be terminated. I would rather go to jail than go back to working for Amazon.
Pros
free lunch sometimes
Cons
disorganized management, and crumby work environment

Slavery
Scanner (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC13 December 2018
If you're looking to start a job don't work at AMAZON. Amazon is a place of slavery. You work 10 hours a day doing the same thing over and over again. It such a slow paste job. Standing on the same spot for 10 hours is tiring more than a physical work, scanning boxes, packaging, folding boxes will kill your brain. And on top of that during busy day you will need to work 12 hours a day 5 days a week. It's like SLAVERY. The training is stupid, they give you so little time and they expect you remember everything they taught you on the first day. This is the hardest warehouse job ever, for me at least. NEVER COMING BACK TO AMAZON.
Pros
for lazy people only
Cons
Slavery

Fulfillment Associate / Trainer (Current Employee) –  CA8 December 2018
Great social circle and helping team at the FC (YYZ2). Job is a lot physical and is a kind of paid workout. Good for the body and soul.

Pay is just around minimum wage and paid fortnightly. But with overtime, it can touch reasonable levels.

Process Assistant / Problem Solver / Order Picker (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC6 December 2018
Working in Amazon to get experience is excellent but that's just it and nothing else more. Salary is too low, you'd work as a horse there, they'd point you out if you call sick and for some emergency things, you'll work 12 hours/6 days sometimes in peak. 4 hours intervals between break.
Pros
Amazon Swag for amazon stuff
Cons
Super long hours, repetitive work and low salary

Hostile Work environment
Fullfillment associate (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB1 December 2018
This is the most unfriendliest place I have worked at. Most of the people act like they are better than everyone and don't respect anyone at all, especially the security who treat you like you did something wrong all the time and are downright rude to you when you try and show them what is in your pockets and yell at you even when you don't deserve it. The managers don't seem very helpful and don't make you feel like you can go to them when you have a problem or concern.
Pros
nothing
Cons
Long hours, unfriendly workplace

Don't work here unless you have to
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 November 2018
The only good part about the job is the benefits honestly. They give long work hours with a bad wage starting at $15.75 per hour, really hard labor work. The management is horrible they treat everyone bad, and walk around like they're better than everyone else.

You're just a number with high expectations!
Laborer (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 November 2018
All about the business, productive and numbers.
You're just a number!

Disappointed:
*management and HR walk around with sour faces. No simple "hello" or "smiles" while passing by.
*company has no culture.
*uncertainty job security (constant turn around) or standing around&being asked to leave (no work)
*co-workers feel threaten and not relaxed
*good luck getting a "THANK YOU" or "PLEASE" out management.
*surprised to see how they get around the labor laws.

Job is repetitive and easily become boring!
At the end of the day...have the energy to continue to job hunt!
Pros
Leaving at the end of the day
Cons
Long hours

Highly phisical demanding with minimal wage
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 November 2018
-A typical day of work includes lots of receiving and physical demanding activities. Management are just new and work process needs to be adjusted properly. Environment is friendly with multi-culture. I guess the hardest part of job is the long hours per shift and most enjoyable is the rewarding 3 days off (if applicable) with medium benefits offered.

simple and meticulous
Seasonal Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Delta, BC2 November 2018
until i was working at this job i was told very little about my position. useful information wasn't given during training or orientation. perhaps this was to hide the simplicity of the task, and to prevent me from rejecting the position until i was working so they could get some use out of me. the job consisted on scanning items and putting them in plastic boxes then put those boxes onto a conveyor. the job was very simple, it was more the way the job was presented than the actual position. the hours were long night shifts of 10 hours for 4 days and some days would be mandatory overtime resulting in working a 60 hour week performing a very simple and boring task.
Pros
good pay, breakrooms had various food options.
Cons
long hours, short breaks, poor work and social life balance.

Don't bother here
Learning Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC26 October 2018
The rumors you've likely heard are mostly true. Amazon cares about money, not about its employees. Even if you're looking for seasonal or temporary work, don't apply here.
Cons
60 hour weeks for months on end sometimes

Order Picker/Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  New Westminster, BC25 October 2018
Worst warehouse you could possibly be into. Think a million hundred times before subjecting yourself into modern slavery. Management are worst. Dont ever waste your time and be one of those thousands of people whos being continuously lured by their rate and offers. I wouldnt recommend this company to anyone out there.

Area Manager (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC24 October 2018
Culture is very unique with an expectation to work between 50-80 hours a week depending on the season. Amazon insists on the highest of standards and requires you to adhere to them.
Pros
stocks
Cons
long hours
