Overall my experience was excellent there as u built very relationships with seniors and they was very supportive

Best place to work in Canada rather than other companies (Amazon is best )……… they provide benefits reharding your health , the best thing I recognize about Amaon is that there first priorities is the safety of their associates ehich makes that place better for work

If you need alot of money quicly and dont mind dying then sure

Recently joined Amazon Ads organization with 6 weeks in. The team is very friendly and always willing to help. All the Amazonians I've met are friendly and kind. The Ad space is interesting, the team is taking on a new project and tech stack which is great. I had a few team lunches already at a few restaurants by the office. Currently hybrid model of working with two days in the office and rest work from home per week. However, I enjoy coming to the office everyday. There's a happy hour every Thursday to chat with people from other teams. Lots to learn and a big code base, still learning most of the systems, tools, culture, etc. Majority of co-workers in the entire office are young or middle age people, so everyone is easy to get along, not saying older people aren't lol. Good offering of events to attend and courses to learn for free by Amazon. Partial reimbursements on expenses such as travel, etc. Never really heard or saw someone getting pip'd. I think the people that get pip'd are the ones who make posts majority of the time. Got tickets to go to local fair Playland by Amazon which was nice since I recently joined. No specific time to start work or leave work, although they are some set daily meetings. I usually like to come to the office before 10 am and leave at 6 pm anyways, so I learn as much as possible.ConsSnacks are brought in by managers sometimes a

Stressful but pays well

Be ready to work long hours and carry heavy things. You are also required to be flexible as your shift could change. There are also some not so nice supervisors. Do not do this long term.

Good place to work

Good work life balance. Great benefits and career advancement oppurtunities. Its a good company for a person wanting to start out at a job. You are given full time work and competetive wages.

Pros

Good culture

Cons

Long hours

2 for one, a job and a physical workout

10.5 hr shift. Managers work as a team to alleviate problems. Focus on safety and rates of packages per hour at 6-8seconds to 'stow' a package. Many landed immigrants taking it as a first job along with students, versus older adults.

It depends you .If you need more money don't apply

You’re under constant surveillance . Long hours and pay is low .inflation is high .You wont believed when you see at your pay record .but best part I think that you work 4 days and rest 3 days .Fun part is that you couldn't rest because you have to have another part job to afford living cost

Pros

Payment times off, Great people you work with

Cons

stressful, hard job, pay low

Good, but pretty monotone

Every day consists of doing the same three tasks in a given day, and you have little to no human interaction for around 10 hours as a sorter. People seemed to be pretty cheerful and nice though.

Fast pace

Fast starts and high rates to do everyday.Management don't support you. They help there own in being promoted.A lot of favouritismReward the lazy people and nothing for the hard workers! High accommodations from injuries and they take advantage of this. There are a lot of employees that shouldn't be there. I like most of my co-workers.

a typical day at work

The most challenging part of the job is dealing with associates on the station—lack of knowledge of management. clean environment and facility. Decent wage.
Was this review helpful?

If you enjoy doing the bare minimum this is the job for you.

In this job, the managers who are in charge of the delivery station have not made any deliveries in the past... That right there is a huge red flag. Out of touch with reality, their solution is to just push their drivers harder for results instead of working with them to find solutions. Could have been a great place to work had management actually become students of their craft instead of looking for their next promotion, belittling those whom actually have first hand experience in the field.

Pros

Pay, benefits

Cons

Management

Good workplace

Fun place to work but physically hard. Very less advancement opportunities in warehouse. Picking is hardest. Pay and benefits are really good . Overall good for short term

Productive, but toxic management culture

Senior management consist of sycophantic know it alls that will micromanage you and treat you like you’re in primary school. Benefits and pay were good, but if you value your mental health, I would recommend you stay far away from this role at Amazon in the delivery stations.

Cons

Hard work

Hectic

This workplace has a very fast paced and stressful environment. I have barely seen people last there for a long time. Most people work to make quick cash and quit after few weeks/ months.

If you aren’t south Asian don’t apply.

They all speak their own language, they aren’t equal at all. HR will not help you, management aren’t clear on what they want u to do. You’re a robot they track everything you do.. if you’re in the bathroom for too long, you’ll get a warning. Minimum is 5 mins nothing longer. It’s good if you enjoy working all day and not having a life. Taking days off is impossible and a headache, I think they need new management honestly and HR. I also believe they discriminate heavily if you aren’t south Asian.

Coworkers are good, Management and safety issues everywhere

They always talk about safety, but when you report a safety issue, you're expected to ignore it and keep working. Machines malfunction all the time and aisles are always overstocked and messy. If you get injured while on the job, they try to blame you for "unsafe working practices" so they can keep their incident reports down, even though you're following their directions and not breaking the rules.Management either doesn't care or are too busy with petty workplace politics to care about anything other than pushing out numbers, and the good leaders are bullied by higher-ups until they give up and stop caring.The different departments don't talk to each other, and miscommunications caused by that lack of communication are blamed on the entry-level workers that are left with conflicting rules that change depending on who you talk to.

Scam

Its not a good workplace and environment. They tend to overworked their employee with minimum wage. There is so much heavy lifting in the company.......

Not a bad place to work

Work is highly repetative. Decent pay.Management is not very supportive. Heavy lifting involved. Interview is not that hard. Opportunity for advancement is less.
