amazon is a horrible place to work

Picker (Former Employee)

Prosthey are just good in price and they treat customer like angel but treat their employee like dirt

Consthis is place is too much pressure to work especially in pick department, they push you too hard to make atleast 100 items per hour and that is impossible to do specially in the pallet land.. they think that you are a robot can walk fast. and number 1 safety rule "no running" but workers are almost get to the point of running so that they can make the rate of 100% coz if you cannot make it they will fire you.. and you get only 15 minutes break, but you have to walk 3-5 minutes to breakroom, they just want you to go sit in the break room and go back your ass to work.. WORST COMPANY TO WORK EVER!!!! they are very bad about calling you over the phone for your termination because they are chicken to see you in person, and sometimes they let you come to work but dont tell you and your badge is not working so you will not get into the gate.

Advice to Senior Managementmanagement they need to listen to their employees and lower the minimum rate, before the workers end up hurting therselves just to make a rate.

Don't expect anything really exciting to happen here. Although, occasionally, something may… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: - Smart people all around keeping you on toes. - Culture of thinking out of box. - Tough milestones to achieve… Cons: - pathetic work-life balance. - in the name of frugality , they do some cheap and mean things like choose a facility in the remotest corner… Advice to Senior Management: An employee's work ownership does not make the employee a work-horse which can keep running without any pause. Learn to recognize… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
