    You'll work hard, be inspired by the customer, but not by the leadership or culture inside the lifelines.

    Former Employee - Staffing Manager  in  Seattle, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Staffing Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Challenge yourself.
    Know how your work impacts the customer.
    Love the lack of power point, caring what you wear, and the focus of Jeff B.
    The location of HQ - Southlake Union is awesome, and so is Seattle.
    RSU equity can build and be rewarding.

    Cons

    HR culture - not good at all.
    Too many leaders that really do not care about their people.
    Simple manners are lacking - how are you doing, what can I do to help you, and great job on that project are all phrases you may never hear.
    You don't come hear to be inspired by a leader. You won't get mentored or developed by anyone but yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at your HR Directors and VP's. Just because they made it work 5 years ago, doesn't mean they're making the company better today. Your lack of investment into systems and automation, as well as Learning and Development for recruiters and HR is going to catch up to you soon. Use the word retention once in a while...you're running out of talent pools to fish in and building a reputation of being a meat grinder.
