At Amazon, everyone is treated like a robot! I understand that there are over 10,000 employees but that’s no excuse to have such poor working conditions. The benefits don’t come through until you’ve been there 6 months. Over-time that doesn’t pay over-time is required and it happens almost every shift. The equipment messes up a lot and isn’t replaced. The system is good but without the equipment to get things done, the system falls apart. People trip over boxes and “jiffies”. It’s a mess, especially if you can’t keep up with the almost impossible scan rates. If you’re okay to walk 7 miles a day then you’ll be okay, if you can keep up, then you’ll be fine but the job isn’t that rewarding considering the amount of work you put into it. Amazon is a great business but it needs to just put more effort into its employees.
If you're hired to work in one of the FC facilities, this is not a place to work if you are the faint of heart. Unless you live at home with your parents and you don't have a car note. This is not a job that you will make any real money. Even if your hired full time the hours are sometimes short. During peak season you'll work 6 days a week 10 hours a day. It is PHYSICALLY demanding- a lot of walking involved, long hours on your feet, and mind numbing work! This is a company to work for only for a short period of time - less than 3-5 months- any longer than that and your be ready to jump off a bridge. But on the flipp side- there is opportunities to apply for other positions.
Working at an Amazon warehouse is a great opportunity for college students and people in between jobs. Once a potential employee passes a drug test and background check, they are hired for the job. The process is also very quick. You could be hired within 2 weeks. The work itself is physical, but it is something that you can get used to. The days are very long, with one paid and one unpaid half hour breaks. \You work the same shifts each week which makes planning other things easy. Having 3 days off is also a nice bonus for those working full time. Sometimes employees may feel they have to compromise safety rules in order to meet the expectations. Additionally, it would be nice to see more of a community at the warehouse. Managers may not always know the associates, and there is not much time to address individual needs. I feel like adding in some time to communicate with associates and managers about concerns without affecting rates would improve the work environment.
