Painful
Hello. I haven't worked at very many places but I have suffered permanent injuries while working for amazon. Including an ankle injury and a wrist injury. It hurts to even stand now.
Management will practice unsafe behavior at the same time will do said unsafe behavior. Only rates matter. They don't believe in sustained injuries and every injury has to have a specific incident.
Pros
It's a job. Hope you get lucky and work in customer returns or on the docs.
Cons
Will treat you like you are the problem.

Bezos Bites
The reason Bezos is the richest person in the world is because of his slave labour camps he calls fulfillment Centers. The government should be investigating the practices at all of these places. Majority of the workers are “ New” to the country and don’t know all their rights. I would only recommend Amazon of you are 100% desperate cause it will kill you.

Very profisenal place for work on top levels
For this company safety is the first priority and they take it very seriously . they pay a lot for tools and PPE for associates and try their best to find qualified people for their top levels. the other thing is they are very open to let you inside but be very hard to promote you above as result of previous philosophy that I mentioned.

I am currently working in Amazon and want to explore more employement opportunities in different companies.
This company pays you very well and there is a lot more chances to get promoted and officially be a part of the comapany. The company focuses on safety first and then at the quality and quantity of work which makes working environment positive.

Too stressful
You won’t be recognized even after slogging 10 hours a day! Biased for favorites. Didn’t even do anything about racism even after complaining! Physically you are so exhausted that you cant do anything else on your days off!! Never get to work on holidays or extra time because all the slots are always full even before we come to know about it!

Appears to be progressive and inviting...all masks and deception.
They paint a picture of advancement and skills development. They have systematically removed all “Human” elements. Training is minimal and the instructors are not proper educators. There are no supervisors around to ask questions or resolve real conflicts. People who cozy up to management get preferential treatment. All communication is automated so no explanation can be given for anomalies. Everything is productivity based but the logistics system is a set up to fail. If you don’t want to socially interact with people...perfect job for you. If you are a robot...perfect job for you. They tolerate unsafe practices and condone threats, harassment and bullying in the workplace.
I refuse to work under threats of harm. Filed complaint with HR. To this day there has been ZERO follow up.

Terrible place to work. Modern day slavery.
Pros
Got paid every two weeks.
Cons
35 km per day of walking minimum. Tolerate threats and harassment. No hope of true advancement.

Good
One need to be a fast learner, work had and meet performance expectations to reserve a permanent position with Amazon. Amazon is all about time of work and the performance achieved during working hours. Amazon provide flexible shifts to allow workers rest. Thanks

Garbage
Rude. Disorganized. Unwelcoming. Cold. Unprepared. No one for guidance while training. Nightmare of a company. Don’t waste your time at this place. They time your washroom breaks, no more than 20 minutes a week.

What you learn from an online business
This is my first time working in a warehouse environment and online industry. It was huge and complicate. A lot of learnings from different department and handling different incident. You have some much opportunities inside such as training to new associates within department, promoting to upper position like Manager Assistant to run department daily operation.

Never go to Amazon warehouse to work
Never go to Amazon warehouse to work, this will change your way of thinking. Once you step into it, you cannot change this work habit. The whole process of entering is a well-designed trap. The company will make you feel that they are concerned about you, but you just Ways to drain your workforce, every short break is designed, you can get a rest when you reach the physical limit, all the design, such as communication methods, guidance, supervision, grade design, etc., just to make you efficient To work and not stop. It will be a nightmare in your life.

The salary he gives you is actually more work than other 16dollars. His workload is twice that of ordinary work. If you have other options, don't come.


I come from a third world country, but this kind of work is extremely rare on our side.

A typical day at Amazon is tiring you work a 10 hour shift with only two breaks. I learned lots of things at Amazon such as being able to pick and package orders. Job is decent and pays well but my experience there went horrible after injury at work which management took lightly which was insulting because I was barely able to walk.

Employer doesn’t care about employees.All they need is their packages to be done.
Doesn’t matter how bad is the weather, You have to finish the deliveries in certain time. Something Customer refused that they got delivery after receiving it so that they can get same stuff twice and they put Driver in trouble that he didn’t put the package where they asked for it.

rigid work
the workplace is very strict and for the groups that work at night, they do not perform integrations around 3 am since the body and mind do not give much.

stressfull/ hard on bod/long hrs/few breaks/ no incentives not even free coffee
Hours are long
work is heavy/fast paced/hard on body- legs an

and knees

a lot of standing

breaks are few - only 2 half hr breaks for an 11.5 hr shift

pay is not equivalent to the amount of work that is required

no incentives for employees - don't even offer free coffee or tea for a company that large.

Do not recommend this to anyone. Find something else. Lots available for $16.50/hr where you don't have to destroy your body and mind for a paycheck. All about Amazon getting bigger. Poor management and style.
