Current Employee - Customer Service Associate
Current Employee - Customer Service Associate

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

Pros

Great training, latest equipment, good start out pay, great people to work with

Cons

Family referrals for employment( husband manager, wife in a different management position as well). Managers and.leads are not coordinated, no chance of advancement Empty promises, customer obsession should be declared as psychological analysis of frustrated individuals. Metric system is totally inaccurate . Long working hours, enforced shift bids, hardly any vacation time can be taken....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on outsourcing and see the results in a few years.Cant have people in India, South Africa and the Philippines taking care of re occurring problems just because you want to go cheap

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
