    Former Employee - Pathways Operations Intern  in  Lexington, KY (US)
    Former Employee - Pathways Operations Intern in Lexington, KY (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Smart people; fast-paced environment; strong performance; constant effort to improve operations
    Everyone I met was energetic and eager to improve operations in the warehouse. They are quant hounds who know how to use data to make decisions so this is a great place to test your analytical skills.

    Cons

    Burn out in staff at fulfillment centers leads to chronic short-staffing and unhappy hourly workers; Christmas peak season is a crazy time and not for the faint of heart! Having grown at 30% CAGR for years, the strains are really felt on the ground in delivering to customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your hiring practices to reduce staff stress
