I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Easy quick hiring process. And for that it does pay better then most quick hire jobs. Easy to learn operations and decent work out.

Cons

Hard labor and working with the dumbest people ever. After making a suggestion I was told just to do what I'm told because this is like "slave labor".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve training process for new employees so that they can learn multiple jobs. Thus making days seem more interesting because one wouldn't be doing the same thing over and over. Maybe this would help retain good workers.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you can stay long enough, restricted stock is a good benefit.
    Costs of health benefits are very reasonable
    Less company politics than most companies

    Cons

    Long hours continue into non-peak times, no work life balance.
    The workforce has over 50% new employees and turnover is very high
    You work all holidays except Christmas and maybe New Years, if lucky
    Micro manage the FCs, especially during peak
    Share door desks with others, no personal space
    Don't do enough with community service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some of the time and effort on employee satisfaction, not just customer satisfaction.
    Spend more time doing exit interviews and implement some changes

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

    Pros

    Very Dynamic, good place to start career, learn lot of things in less period of time, Business is growing and expanding so too many things to learn

    Cons

    One gets lost on the core and delivering due to so much happening around. Too much volatility due to continuous change in the business. Promotions are hard. Career and self development is neglected.
