I was hired as lead and worked like warehouse worker. Nothing is organized and the culture here is very plantation-esq. They constantly move people around. They overfill departments that don’t need help and managers at the department that needs help don’t want the help so some people are just floating around the warehouse and they pick and choose who they think it is because the warehouse is SO HUGE. I was sent home for someone else’s doing before and I have children and bills just like everyone else!!! As well I tested for a higher position in robotics as my credentials qualify and I passed with flying colors. I never got the position but was told MULTIPLE times I did and I just needed to confirm on a wed site. This whole company is a SCAM!

Just like pretty much any entry level position with amazon, you will be used up and spit out. I had hit pay cap and they have a tendency to start putting you on PIPs and really digging into your metrics to find a way to get you on report and out the door so they can swap in for someone cheaper.

The company itself is a great place to work. However, depending on the individuals in your org you may have a different story. Short version I signed a 4yr new hire agreement and was terminated because of hear say. I was told by my skip level to move offices to a different Corp building which was a WeWork location and the reason given was clocking in without being onsite. I never got a chance to respond and explain that you don't have to scan your badge for entry on leased building but they would not even listen to understand. Overall, I was f*&ked over.

Corp life is great

They’re going to make you work for this money. You’re gonna be wearing uncomfortable shoes and your body is going to be aching and hurting. I put three out of five star for work and life balance because you’re so tired you don’t get to do anything on your day off. This job is extremely boring and you can really get stuck doing this. Don’t do it only if it’s a temporary situation, which in this case it was for me. I work here for about two years. The people are awesome but the rules are very serious. If you don’t get back to your shift on time (which is calculated by the minute) then you’re in trouble. Too much for not enough pay. My body hasn’t been the same since working here for two years. Don’t even think about Worker’s Comp., they pay off the medical place (concentra). I was seriously injured, my back had a sprain and they did nothing. It’s all really a hassle and so not worth it. Unless you’re desperate, do it for a while but don’t stay.

Support staff, benefits, stability
Not enough positive feedback, physically demanding (seriously), break times

The scheduling is done through an app on your phone. Some days they post enough hours to take a shift. others (like last night) they post no shifts at all. Think of gaining shifts as a race. If your phone is slow or you are in a place with no WIFI you wont get anything. Then when you get there about two times a month the manager in charge is looking at you like I have nothing for you to work on. This has only gotten worse since the upper pencil pushers changed the 'free shipping' on food from $35 to $150. Workflow has been cut in half since April.

The pay is OK, I hated the constant shift swaps and the fact that you could not say things for fear of offending someone.

Pros and Cons
It pays OK
Got fired for referring to a thief as a Cotten Pickin thief.

This started out as an okay gig. The senior program manager installed all of his friends as managers. This set up an environment of cronyism and it began hard to operate as his friends bypassed chain of command. This was said to be my fault but this was the environment they set up. Passive aggressive is a way of life here. Racism was evident , my favorite was being referred to as a munchie bee in front of the VP of global real estate, being introduced to others as someone “who is let out of his cage every now and then.” The other managers actually referred to female managers as being b**tches that need to be put in their places. Couple this with the unlawful laws I observed being broken. It was a havoc driven system and if you can keep your mouth shut nod say yes, especially if you are brown youll be good. If not stay away!!

Pros and Cons
They try to be inclusive but it’s an illusion, and will use you as a token
All of the above

I deliver packages using my personal vehicle. I am not an Amazon Employee but a contractor. This is an excellent gig as you pick the hours you want to work.

Pros and Cons
You pick your work schedule
Using your personal vehicle does put additional miles on it.

Amazon has to be my favorite place to be able to have the opportunity to work for. The team dynamic was awesome. The goal orientation was motivating for me, the praise for hard work was appreciated. The willingness to help all employees to strive to move up is really nice. The endless opportunities within the organization are great. I would love to be able to go back. Plus the benefits are great. And they really care about you and your family life. Race, religion, gender are never a issue. Equal opportunity is one of the top things they strive for and put first.

Pros and Cons
Everything they offer. Team dynamics, rewards for hard work, holiday lunches, benefits
If your late parking isnt great
