Packager/Heavy Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON27 July 2018
They churn out employees as much as they hire them. They don't care about the "person" at all. Even with all the morning slave chants and the brainwashed management talking about the benefits of Amazon when it was actually non-existant.

Thanks Amazon, thank you for giving me a whole new perspective on the job I will never take again.
Pros
Lifelong friends in misery.

INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR- COURIER DELIVERY DRIVER (Former Employee) –  maryland Unites6 July 2018
Amazon delivery jobs have flexible hours to work during the week but days you work driving might be for up to 12 hours or more the customers you deliver to are also allowed to tip the delivery driver which makes the pay good.
Cons
long hours delivering

Long hours, but good environment
Packer (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC29 June 2018
At times the days seemed pretty long, but the pay was good and the break rooms were interesting, and fun. They have their own place to buy food, and everyone is usually fairly friendly. I'm happy to have learned what it was like to work there, packing, and helping with the quality of packages. The management was fine, and they were always concerned about the health and safety of their workers, to make sure that injuries and such were kept to a minimum. The workplace culture during work hours were usually fairly fast paced, and at times it was tedious, though the friendliness of my co-workers always made me able to keep up. The hardest part of the job was definitely the tedious, and long hours. The most enjoyable part was meeting all the new people I could, and the break rooms were a fairly fun place to be in.
Pros
Able to buy a variety of food in lunch rooms, and prizes were sometimes given to hard workers.
Cons
Long Hours, Tedious work.

Stay away
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON19 June 2018
The pay($14.90/hr) and the work expectations are unrealistic for human beings. HR department have no answers or solutions just excuses. They pay minimum wage but expect you to perform like your getting paid $20 an hour. This company has brought the concept of sweat shops to Canada. Shame on you Amazon. They write you up for being in the 90% range. MTO (overtime) is expected or you get attendance points. Think twice before getting involved with this company. They have a very high employee turn over for a reason.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
Terrible work enviroment

Since the pay is not bad it's not good either but the problems start to show during peak season.
Pros
Good pay, Transit accessible, overtime
Cons
Long hours, Possibly dangerous, overtime

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

PACKER (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON20 May 2018
Very easy job and provides a consistent 40 hours. The work is easy but is also very boring. Getting a promotion also takes a while. Also the hours are long.

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
