    So much for "attack the process, not the person".

    Former Employee - Support Staff in Fernley, NV (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competative pay
    Good benefits
    A few decent people still work there.

    Cons

    Shady operation- when something doesn't work, they don't look at the broken pieces, they blame the people rather than work with them to correct the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play the double jeopardy game (have a corrective discussion with the employee then turn around and write them up for the same issue that had already been discussed and corrected). Also, quit changing policies just because you're not getting the results you want. Give the current policies a chance to take hold and results to happen.

    Former Employee - Picker in Whitestown, IN (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time

    Pros

    Sometimes you would find an open box of candy to eat.

    Cons

    They worked you like a slave. The breaks were not enough for all the running we had to do throughout the ginormous wear house. They should definitely pay more. In the summertime it was beyond unbearably hot and it is very hard to make rate as a picker.
