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

Work hard and work even harder
Area Manager (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON19 March 2018
If you're willing to put in endless hours, dedicate your life to this job, and have the area manager role take a serious physical toll on your body, then you may survive in this role. Usually work 60 hours within 4 days on shift, frequently asked to do projects on my days off, my manager has contacted us at 2am before to insist we come in on a day we've previously booked off and had plans for. Pay and benefits are good but other than that I can't say many positives. Although you're pretty much guaranteed promotions from Level 4 to 5 to 6 within 2-3 years of joining as a Level 4 Area Manager, by the time those promotions will come around you may not still be with the company - if you last a year you're a champ.
Good luck.
Pros
Pay, benefits, brand on resume.
Cons
Long hours, no work life balance, extremely demanding, degrading management, sheer exhaustion, severe physical toll on body, 12-15 hrs a day standing, 10km a day walking in safety shoes
