I liked it when I worked there but it turned quick.

They promised all of us seasonal worker permanent jobs after a trial period during the pandemic. We worked really hard and they let all of us go once the other countries opened back up and they could replace us and pay them less. This was an awful thing to do because a lot of people I worked with depended on this job and thought they had a guaranteed job. They could have just been honest. Kinda reminds me of the really nice friend who tells you what you want to hear when that’s not what you need.

Pros

Friendly

Cons

Dishonest

If you like to baited

Bait and switch this is the Job for you. The company will tell you how much your performance matters but in all actuality they just want someone there to complete the season. And not convert you.

Amazon independent seller

I worked as an independent seller on the Amazon platform. For several years I enjoyed it, but over time so many new sellers flooded the marketplace that I was unable to make a profit on items I had sold in the past.

Home-based position

I was hired as a reserves customer service agent since 2016. The only complaint I have is that they kept switching supervisors. I probably have 5 different supervisors during my time there. Also, there is no time between calls, they come in one right after the other, giving you no time to send emails and whatnot. Otherwise, they train you well and if you can document calls and send emails while the customer is on the phone, you'll do fine.

Pros

Work at Home

Cons

No benefits

Tough

I worked as a csa. The job is gruelling. The pay doesnt match what is expected of you. They monitor absolutely everything and managers micromanage. Team culture is fantastic and the only thing that kept me there for a long time

Pros

Team

Cons

Long hours, bad shifts, pay

MTurk

I know some who have found this online work very lucrative. Even though I was set up with the best equipment, my work satisfaction is very low. Most of the tasks are repetitive and brain-numbing. I would only recommend if you are wiling to invest in equipment and are very tech-savvy and savor sitting at a computer all day. Oh and BTW, there is very little work even for someone with 99+ % ratings.

Pros

work at home, flexible

Cons

low pay

You will get yelled at

You gotta have a thick skin to work in any customer facing department because you will be blamed for things that are far from your control. Having an awesome Team Lead helps.

Work from home

I love being able to work from home. The hiring process was very easy and they gave you all of the information you would need to know about the position before you accepted the position. They provide all of the equipment for your job and the training process was in-depth and overall very good. I am at the end of my 4th week of training and go solo next week and feel I will do well with all of the training, tools, and encouragement I have received. Wish me luck!

Pros

Work from home

Cons

Fun and Challenging

The day starts around 7.30 am and can end up to 11 pm. Management dealing handling of the warehouse is really bad but the rest of the employees are able to work together and get the tasks on time.

Bad job culture and management

Don’t like many of the “team leads” there. They’re power hungryThere’s no semblance of fairness it’s like a palace politic fest there. Job culture? Poor. Nobody really likes the job. Most people chosen to promote are based on favoritism. Very bad policy almost primeval

Pros

Flexi work schedule

Cons

Discrimination, unfairness

Productive, Fast paced , stressful.

Management are slightly friendly but mostly strict. Punctuality and work safety is key. Staffs working at Amazon are friendly and helpful. Completing task on time and committing for the last minute shifts given by management is tough.
