    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

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    On the right team and project, Amazon is a great place to work. Extremely talented people, and interesting problems. Amazon leans heavily towards investing in the long term which means it explores some fascinating areas and makes big bets. Think of it as a well funded VC firm funding many startups (AWS, Amazon Instant Video, Amazon Fresh, etc.)

    Cons

    As it grows, Amazon is becoming more "corporate". Also, oncall responsibilities can be a burden on the wrong team.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, Good pay about 11-12$ hr

    Cons

    3 breaks first a 15 then a 30 then a 15 again only problem is it takes 5 mind to get out of the work area plus then you have to go through metal detectors equals robbed of most of your break. Second is that they work you like slaves I mean it like modern day migrant farm workers. Your expected to do things at a machine like pace for 10 hours straight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give longer breaks like an hour for lunch. Try not to push people to be like machinery and pack a box every 45 seconds.
