Not for everyone, Positive and Negative experience.

Fast Paced, very competitive, no work life balance. Very long work day for Area Managers.10 hour days 4 days a week is more like 12-14 hours a day 4-5 days a week. Great benefits and compensation (base pay, signing bonus, stock options). Quick career advancement. Provides an opportunity for GED/High School graduates and new immigrants to Canada to advance their career with good compensation. Many of the MBA graduates working as Operations Managers lack industry experience and are too focused on advancing their careers, they sometimes forget to treat people with respect and show empathy. I would not recommend working here for anyone with a young family.

Work hard and work even harder

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

Amazon Fulfillment Leaves You Unfulfilled

Cons: - Well known management hiring bias for Indian ethnicity (in Canada). - High turnover across all business functions - Poor work life balance - in the contract, you are only supposed to work ~40 hours, 4 days per week, but it ends up being ~60 hours per week across 5-6 days sometimes. - No concern for Area Manager mental or physical well-being. - Stock compensation is not enticing as the turnover is ~6 months, and you would need to stay ~5 years to claim it all. - Company does not follow their own Leadership Principles. - Shifts are changed frequently and not known prior to accepting the offer. - Toxic call-out culture. Pros: - Good base salary (if you don't calculate the number of hours worked) - Company growth. If you can last > 1 year, you can transfer out of an FC. - International training opportunities. - Signing bonus
