    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.

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

    Pros

    Smart people
    Successful business
    Builds new stuff

    Cons

    Only good for rockstars, if you are not planning to be the best - don't bother. Even from a money perspective, only rockstars get promoted and the big bonuses.
