    Current Employee - Recruiter in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Easy atmosphere with a playfulness not found at most corporations

    - Overall fantastic environment

    Cons

    - Still a big corporation
    - Management can be overwhelming at times, i.e. micromanaging
    - Seniority and position does hold power (as it should), but is sometimes abused
    - Hard for entry-level candidates to get in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more chances to entry-level candidates! You do an excellent job growing them; why not grow them from the beginning?

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

    Pros

    Above average pay for entry level warehouse work. The general attitude of Amazon is pretty nice at first. Training is thorough.

    Cons

    Long hours (10 hour days), tons of mandatory overtime, extremely strict policies, constantly changing procedures while still writing up employees.
