Mistreated Employees
Fulfillment Associate (Current Employee) –  Balzac, AB10 January 2019
Employees are overworked for how much we are paid. We don't even get full breaks because everytime we do swipe out, 15minutes of time is wasted on going through security checks. Although the benefits are good, it does not make up for the way employees are treated.
Pros
Benefits, hours
Cons
Overworked, improper breaks

Discrimination and lack of respect
Packer (Former Employee) –  Delta, BC20 December 2018
At the delta location you will be discriminated and treated different if you are NOT from india. They chose the hardest job for non-east-indians while they are just talking and gossiping in each corner. The rates are manipulated by the PAs.
Get ready to be treated by a-holes who doesn't have any education and treat you very disrespectful.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Disrespect from supervisors, discrimination if you are not from India, annoying hindi language 24/7!!

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

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.

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.

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

Employees or slaves?
Pucker (Former Employee) –  DELTA, BC, CANADA7 October 2018
Suffering from IBack, Knee and Hand problems are part of the job.

10 hours shifts that break you down. It you are a picker be ready to literraly walk, bend, go up a ladder for 9 hours 1/2. The walking is extenuating, Extreme physical duties. Managers care more about reaching their orders pick gotas than the employees health.

Also, the promise of day 1 benefit, it's a LIE! I Human Reaources excususe its that Amazon has been hiring a lot of employees and Western Life has a backroad processing employees benefits.

90% of the employees are newcomers to Canada that don't know tthat they can find a better pay job, less stress, less health issues, better hours than Amazon and of course be treated as a person not as a robot/slave.

Honestly employees work as slaves, managers even discourage employees to go to the bathrooms, every single day at the star of the shift they treated employees of termination if they do not keep their rating.


AMAZON DELTA in Brirish Columbia, Canada is the worst place to work!!!!!


Jeff Bezos,
Get robots to work at your Amazin warehouses.
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, walking long distances extreme physical job, standing more than 9 hours, demanding managers, do not fullfill promises to employees

Fast Pace and Rewarding
FC Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON4 October 2018
The average work day goes by very fast, especially in the busy time periods.

If you want to advance the opportunities are there. You have to work hard and express a desire to do more things.

Management here can be hit or miss. The good one's always seem to get promoted quickly or move on. The others . . . they end up sticking around.

The hardest part of the job for me personally was the stress. Sometimes in seems unnecessary. When goals are being met and the teams are working at their hardest sometimes there's additional pressure added for no other reason than for the AM to have a higher to put in their report. Because they value a pat on the head from their upper management more than the well being of their teams.

The people you get to work with make it worth while. I have met friends for life here!
Pros
Secure, benefits, opportunity to advance
Cons
Feels like slave labour, very little recognition, soul-crushing

First few weeks
Stower worked the PIT. (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON25 September 2018
My experience working in FC as a stower the first week went great, but then beginning of second week your on your own and if you don't do well you can lose your job. Only the experienced workers that start there can make it, and it is not friendly at all mostly its who you know will be in your favor. Not a work place for older employees unless you already worked for years with Amazon. Amazon tracks your every move and time and you are based on it for your employment. I wish they just go 100% robotic.
Pros
None
Cons
Benefits that start day one don't really till after one month, Time micromanagement.
