    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training, challenging work, able to make decisions and act upon them. Good benefit package. Overall my 9 year experience with Amazon is positive, working in both Operations and Human Resources.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance for exempt associates is not great. It is understandable that during "peak" (Holiday season) a lot of hours will be worked, but as an exempt associate, and working in an operation that is open 20/hours a day, you can expect to work odd and long hours all year long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting within is difficult, and when it does happen, compensation is not equal to hiring outside the company.

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

    Pros

    Good learning experience, Team focused, get to learn technology at a high level, and help with IT related projects. Hands on experience with a variety of IT Equipment such as thinclients, switches, ap's etc. Ton's of benefits including, 401k, health insurance, life insurance, discounts, stock sharing. Greatest pro in my opinion is you don't have to answer the phones, just solve problems.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, career advancement and training seems to be lacking. Rotating shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starting pay should be higher for all the responsibilities we have. Hiring people for one site and keep them there and you will have happier, more productive employees.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with amazing management is a plus, I love cvg3 my second time here I been here as smx temp. Came back and got hired on within a month I'm experiencing something's I was taught and learned like problem solve ambassador Full time employee training folks listening to them helping them out this is a great field to learn different techniques amazon use to keep their job running the benefits are amazing.. I never worked for a company that provided you with such great benefits as amazon do.. You can add or change information on your benefits. They even have amazon university if you want to learn about a field at your work just apply.

    Cons

    As I became a problem solver I thought I'd get a raise due to the enormous problems I have to solve everyday I have to work. It can become stressful and will have you as if your ready to just give it up because you feel like you being underpaid for more work you do then an complaining associate that has to receive 300 items to a cart within 30 mins or 120 items within 20 mins it can become overwhelming sometimes but I just push myself through and stick it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just look into problem solving and just give them the correct amount of money they deserve.. Thank you
