Hard to get by on this salary.
FC Associate (Current Employee) –  YYZ426 February 2019
It might be a fun place to work if you are twenty something years old. In reality even twenty years olds are walking in pain because there are no rest areas except the lunchroom which you are not allowed to be in unless it's lunch time. Also the lunch room is so far away and got to get through strict security like in some
jail or something. You are not allowed to sit down ever or they will see you on the cameras or report you to safety and you will get pointed or get a written warning. The managers are useless they only come around with bad news. Okay some supervisors or PA as they call them at Amazon are helpful and hard working. In my case I have been mesmerized by the whole ordeal of getting a job at amazon because of the technology stand point but that's also overrated. I have worked at more technologically advanced companies and about to go back to one soon.
Overall a forty year old man with two kids won't make enough money to make rent/mortgage payment working at Amazon. Okay what about the benefits dental and such, well with out that it would be yet another sweat shop in one of the best Countries in the world. Thx.
Pros
get to meet some good people.
Cons
Big company, Aggressive business practices, Low pay

Amazon is an Interesting place to work
Process Assistant (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON6 February 2019
The hours are long but, it's only 4-days/week. Job is relatively easy as long as you don't mind repetition, monotony, and some heavy lifting. There is a lot of opportunity for advancement, however, make sure you get it in writing.
Pros
Generous time off, open door policy
Cons
Long hours, low pay

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

Management wasn't helpful
Fulfillment Associate (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON10 January 2019
Did various jobs working there but wasn't happy with the rate and manager. Supervisors look at numbers more than the employees. Also, good luck going to the washroom as your rate will go down...
Pros
Benefits from day one
Cons
Long hours standing

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.
