Not a great place to work as Full-time perm

Be prepared to work your butt off and if you can't then be ready to work somewhere else. Oh and the signing bonus they will want that back if you didn't last a year at amazon. I feel sorry for all the college students getting out of college and working for amazon. Amazon is using and abusing you. Believe it.
