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

    Pros

    The amazon fulfillment center is always hiring. One major bonus is they will hire you with little to no experience. So long as you have an ID and high school diploma you'll be okay.

    Cons

    The work is not easy. They expect you to he fast paced and get stuff done. It is very easy to get written up if you don't meet they're time standards. They're all about the rates.
