Area Manager (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 19 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.
Pay, benefits, brand on resume.
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

Amazon is somewhat a good workplace, has great management and culture. However, their rates for expectations are extremely high and employers are forcibly driving their employees to increase productivity.

Good working with peers. Room for advancement isn't there. I like to strive to know the company within. The company has policies that do not adhere to everyone. Which makes it harder for other employees to agree with them.

Overall they deman alot from you physically, you are on your feet 10 hours of the night and are not allowed to sit. those employeed throguh the agency dont get same perks as employees hired straight through amazon and must keep their rates up all the time or should be worried about getting let go. During peak they do a mass hiring and afterwards a mass firing so keep your rates up and dont get pointed. have to kiss up to the managers to have a secured job.

Team Lead (Former Employee) – Indian, ON – 16 January 2018
It was one of the best places I've worked with. I've grown in this organisation from an agent to a Team Lead handling 20 people in my team. Very dynamic who wouldn't really care about the employees eventually.

Order / Picker (Temporary / Full Time) (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 7 January 2018
A daily exercise prior to start of work which is good for conditioning the body. Scanner is provided for every worker and give us a chance to learn in using it. The workplace is clean and enable us to do our work efficiently. The work is ok except for the fact that we are unsure if we will be continuously working for the company so that we will continuously earn money for our daily needs.
Daily work is OK.
Notice about termination of work can come anytime.

The whole staff is good .I wanna work there more.But their way to end my agreement without any reason was not good seem to me. My overall rating was good.But they end my agreement because we were new there.Their way to end agreement was a kind of disrespectful as we need their for bread and butter, not they need us.Once their need was fill amd after that they end us directly.
