Shopper

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I really liked working at Amazon. I have good memory so shopping for items for customers was enjoyable.

What I wish was different

The availability of working hours was competitive. More hours were available after I left for college.

Advice

There’s a lot of free time, during that time shoppers should learn where various items are around the store. This is so when an order comes in shoppers are able to minimize their amount of time shopping. Which will result in customers getting their items on time.

amazon warehouse employee

May - August 2019 • Jefferson, GA

What I liked

The pay and somewhat flexible schedule.

What I wish was different

That the managers treated you as someone with a brain instead of treating you like an idiot that needed to be babied through every tiny task. It was also inefficiently run because of this which was frustrating.

Advice

It's not a hard job and you get paid well, but it's very boring. Be ready for a brainless job.

Amazon Fulfillment Associate

May - August 2019 • Winchester, VA

What I liked

I really enjoyed working with Amazon fulfilling peoples orders because it was very interesting being able to see and witness what actually happens when someone orders an item on Amazon. It required alot of active work and organization but I find that type of work to be quite enjoyable.

What I wish was different

Looking back on it I wouldnt hope for any difference in what I experienced during my time there.

Advice

If you are considering working there, be prepared to always be on your feet.

Amazon warehouse associate

August 2019 • Salt Lake City, UT

What I liked

Paid weekly Only 15 minutes away Got me in physical shape Made good friends Opportunity to grow

What I wish was different

Shorter work day (its 10 hours, four days a week) Switch between tasks. (We move itmes into robots and it's very rough on the body, took most people 1 month to get used to it) Managers work along side us.

Advice

If you work there, keep your eye on moving forward and being positive. You are stuck in a warehouse with no natural light and your work never ends. Keep positive and that would help. Remember to make friends and to enjoy it. The physical part is super hard. It will be painful to wall after work, so relax a little and stretch. This will make you strong.

Sortation Associate

May - September 2019 • Kenosha, WI

What I liked

The job is exactly what they tell you when you’re hired. It isn’t difficult and they’re very upfront about it.

What I wish was different

There are days when you only work three hours then leave. It’s hard to make a reliable income when you can be released at any time. Also, the work is redundant, it’s very manageable, but some days it was hard to not feel a bit numb.

Advice

This job is all about attitude. You absolutely get out of it what you are willing to put into it.

Warehouse Stocker

September 2019 • Tucson, AZ

What I liked

I loved the environment I was in. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. It felt like I was working among family instead of around strangers. People here are always wanting to help each other succeed and they'll do whatever they can to help you reach your goals.

What I wish was different

The only thing I wish would have been different was the length of training. It was only 3 days long (for a stow position) and I wanted more help in that area to ensure I was doing the correct thing.

Advice

I would go into this job with an open mind - things are always changing here, so you must be willing to go with the flow. Please don't stress yourself out over the small things!

I liked that I was able to put myself in a position to become a leader. I was given a multitude of responsibilities such as managing flex drivers, other associate members, and managing outbound packages.

Advice
