Boring and long hours

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Same thing everyday and constantly on your feet. It’s not bad as a temp job for someone young wanting to earn some money because the pay is not bad.

Productive and fun

Long boring draining hours but not very hard work so not to bad but the pay should be higher considering Amazon is a billion trillion dollar company and barely pays over minimum wage for bad work

It was okay

Long hours but decent productivity I enjoyed my time there. There was always something to learn and the employee engagement was great. Great job for the younger generation.

Fast pace

It’s very fast paced and you will do a lot of walking. Can be flexible with working hours great while you are studying. Free food in the canteen sometimes.

Exploitative company

A place just to get your check, lay low and get out. There's a reason the turnover rate is so high. In my experience, there are good days and bad days, but thats all based on business needs. They will burn out an associate and find a replacement asap. Everybody is replaceable.

Pros

With UPT you can leave mid shift or not even show up to a shift

Cons

Poor leadership, HR is not there to protect the employee, it is only there to protect the business

A secure job, but very slim opportunities to move forward.

The scheduling and security of the job is by far the best qualities. The hours are set and if you have the hours you can use them without asking. The work itself is repetitive, so there's room to learn and refine skills. But there's not a lot of learning at the base level after the first month. My worst experience was the promotions. Everyone with more than 3 months of work, knows how to do the job well. Out of 200+ workers, you'll need to compete for 2 - 3 spots. It is very difficult to stand out in a place that does the same thing everyday.

Pros

Good hours, Scheduling, Benefits

Cons

Promotions, Pay rate, Boring

Hard job

The work is hard, you have no chance of growth if you are not friends with someone (supervisor or manager). If you have a strong physique and move fast is ok. I recommend you do not work night shift.

Pros

Free caffè

Cons

Long hours

Doing the same thing for 10 hours straight is not for the weak minded.

Working at Amazon is easy, at first you are not expected to achieve high numbers but you will be eventually expected to keep a certain pace. Management could be better, my manager was a great person but other managers in higher ranks could be very strict. Expect to be standing your whole shift unless you are on break. The most enjoyable part of this job was probably being able to do Amnesty as soon as I hit my 3 months being full time. With Amnesty you are running around fixing stations and going into the AR floor picking up items and fixing any problems with robots or bins, it always made my day go by faster and I think I would have stayed longer if I could've been put on the floor more often.

Productive

Job is very consistent at times, when workforce is slow your given an option to stay at your post or learn something new that no one wants to do. If your fast, they'll want to push/ask you around to do other things. Management/Leads/Supervisors or whatever is somewhat fair depending on which DEPARTMENT. Sucks to be you if your in that.... department.

Flexible Hours and Simple Tasks

This is a great place for college students to work. As a part time employee, a shift was normally 4 hours and would occasionally flex up/down 30 minutes to 1 hour. The tasks were very easy but things can get overwhelming when things get backed up. I enjoyed the sortation center because everything was already packaged, I just had to move the packages from one area to another & sometimes load pallets on trailers. Benefits were also provided after 90 days: life insurance, dental insurance, a vision plan, and health pay. I also utilized Career Choice and paid for a semester of school. Sometimes snacks are provided & there are drawings for prizes. At the time I was working, I was making $16 an hour and it later increased to $16.75.
