I worked at Amazon.com part-time (less than an year)

Pros

(Reviewed as SMX Temp, from Nov-Jan)
Good starting pay, lots of hours during peak.
Lots of focus on safety and quality.

Cons

11 hour days during peak, could have had more breaks.
30 minute lunch is quite rushed.
Odd shifts, mine was Sun-Thurs.
Horrible, repetitive music.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please no music, or if music, require it to be changed every hour or so. Hip hop all day long was quite annoying. 11 hour shifts should have longer breaks or at least a longer 45 min lunch.
