Horrible management, extreme work load
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON15 June 2018
The associates there were great, the main reason anybody stays. The turnover rate is about 20 days because of the insane workload and horrible management. The tiniest quality errors will get you right ups, and the management will not even try to learn your name knowing how quickly you will get fired and how expendable you are.

OK place to work.
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON13 June 2018
The hours are long, and it can be pretty intensive labour at times. The management can be nitpicky about how fast or slow you're working and they are constantly keeping tabs on your performace.

Toxic work environment
Pathways Operations Manager (Warehouse Manager) (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON12 June 2018
Good pay and benefits but employees are not valued and treated as machines. Better to work in fields like IT, Safety, HR etc. and avoid operations if you are looking for any sort of work life balance. Company provides no training and no development support

Overall positive but somewhat heartless corporate environment
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Delta, BC7 June 2018
---------------------------
Amazon is a great place to work, but only some of the time.

Part time is good because it's 20 hours a week.

Full time during "peak" can result in 60-hour long, hard weeks.

The staff and management mostly really do care about your safety, any issues you face, and your productivity and are happy to listen to suggestions (especially those which result in higher rates which means more productivity which meaans more profits for Amazon.)

The only problem is if you are not in good shape to begin with you will likely not be capable of being productive enough (unless maybe you cut corners as much as possible) and will eventually be let go.

Rates mean if you aren't productive enough for three weeks within a 90-day period you will be fired.

Management has no interest in excuses like pain, issues, broken systems, etc when it comes to rates.
If your rates are lower than most others no one bothers to ask "why". They just presume you are lazy, which is quite often not the case.

Also different processes (jobs like "stow" "pack" or "pick" for example) vary wildly in how easy/insanely challenging they can be, and during peak things get harder (because it's peak.)

Overall its a good starting job and a good place for you and a few friends to try and get hired together and work with people you know, and meet great new people, but its still tough warehouse work.
It's a grind.
Pros
Nice wonderful people, great job to get hired with people you know, mostly very fair policies
Cons
Hard labour, long hours, rates trump safety in reality

Productive and fun workplace
Customer Service Team Manager (Former Employee) –  Philippines2 June 2018
Just as usual typical day monitoring the CSR's work and I have learned to manage a team and trained them properly to reach the standard quality to deliver the customer service satisfaction for all our customers. The hardest part of my job is to train people since individual has its own attitude but patience is a virtue so at the end of the day everything has been managed accordingly and it has a very good outcome.

Oppressive Work Environment
Inventory Control Clerk / Packer (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON24 May 2018
A temporary job with 6 x 10 hours while they need you. If one desires permanent position, must contend with ever changing standards, and management contrivances to ensure that one does attain them. Did not appreciate packing sex toys. And especially do not appreciate the spot checks which would not permitted police offices. A slumdog employer who should be and their products banned from this country.

Dont work here!!!!
stower (Former Employee) –  YYZ4 - Brampton15 May 2018
Amazon may be great to order from but working for them is another story.
They will promise you the world with benefits, pension, stock,etc and then after they get their tentaciles in they will be all over you.
A computer will decided whether you stay or get fired because they want robots just like their little Keva robots that move stock around.
Favouritism is rampant at the Brampton wherehouse.
Managers are on power trips.
do yourself a favour and RUN Away and NEVER work here.
Pros
None
Cons
too many to list here
