worst hiring process ever
Fulfillment Associate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB5 novembre 2019
Went to a group hiring fair for a position at the fulfillment center. You sit through a 30 minute presentation and Q&A session. At the end they pretty much tell you will be receiving a job offer once you pass a background check. I passed the background check and received my offer letter in my email telling me that they are scheduling training and orientation dates. 3 WEEKS!! go by and I finally get a letter from the recruitment team saying that they are no longer scheduling training and orientation and to try again later. A huge waste of time, glad I didn't rely on this as my only job offer. For a huge logistical company they suck at employee/employer logistics. Do not waste your time

Terrible
Stower (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB1 octobre 2019
Not a good place to work at all. I quit after two weeks. First of all, there is no public transportation or a employee bus. You have too walk for 10 hours straight, and if you don’t find a spot for a item you are scanning within 3 minutes the mangers will come and question you. If you call in sick, you’ll get 1.5 point. If you have 6 you get fired. Break time is really only 20-25 minutes. They have like 10 security guards there acting like it’s a airport If your on the 3rd or 4th floor you will likely miss some time of your break.

Cheep company - Employees = machines DUSTY place
Inventory Count (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB23 septembre 2019
Minimum pay. Keep you seasonal and contractual so they dont have to pay benefits. High turn over rate always hiring and firing. Dusty and not a clean wear-house. If you are allergic to dust and dont want to work like machines for minimum pay - this place is not for you. MANAGERS are biased and have double standards.

They demand too much
Fulfillment Associate (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB28 août 2019
They demand too much of their employees and pay minimum wage while expecting their employers to work mandatory overtime shifts and maintain ridiculous stats

An Iceberg of a job.
Fulfillment Associate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB18 août 2019
Now sure what I can say without violating my contract. So I will keep is simple. You work for 10 hours, with 2 breaks. And during that time you are required to keep up with productivity demands. However, they are not always physically possible. A bathroom break could ruin your rates.
Points positifs
Occasional free lunch
Points négatifs
Long hours, productivity is everything.

Abusive work
Fulfillment Associate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB12 août 2019
I worked as a picker in Calgary location. It’s a continuous walking job. You get two half an hour break, but it’s not enough for this tough job. If you are not up to the speed, manager will come and question you. Very tiring and boring job. Will not recommended Amazon to anyone to work for.
Points positifs
Three days off
Points négatifs

Nothing Special, Just OK
Fulfillment Associate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB5 août 2019
Overall, Amazon was nothing special. During my tenure with amazon I first started off as stow in inbound for 3 months. Stow was honestly not bad in comparison to the other positions. Stow was a great balance, as the physical labor wasn't too much. It just consisted of pushing a U-Boat or Juice cart full of merchandise to an aisle and stowing these items away. A great balance between walking and standing. I was then transferred with no choice to outbound; Pick. Pick was the opposite of stow. For 10 hours a day you will be a slave to your scanner, as you will follow directions from your scanner on items that need to be picked. As pick be prepared to literally just walk and walk all shift. "Amazon Pace" as they call it, 20 feet in five seconds. I felt as in pick you are worked the hardest for the same paycheck as everyone else. BE WARNED if you are a picker.

During your 10 shift you are given two "30" minute breaks. One paid and the other not. Since Amazon warehouses are huge in size your breaks are never truly 30 minutes. Depending on your location in the building it can take at least 3 to 5 minutes to get to the lunchroom, so be sure your a track star. You may think you made it but don't forget about the line for the microwaves. By the time you sit down you are truly only left with 20-25 minutes depending on what you brought for lunch.

At Amazon you work 10 hour shifts for 4 days a week with 3 days off. During peak period in November and December be prepared to work 50 or 60 hour weeks back to back. Yes, these overtime days are MANDATORY so be prepared to spend numerous
  plus... days at the fulfillment center. Be sure not to plan anything on these days as overtime us is usually called on short notice. Doctor notes are also UNPAID

Overall, Amazon had excellent health benefits with coverage for dental, medical, vision and much more. In my opinion Amazon is a great starter or temporary job, nothing you would want to consider for more than 1 year.

Sorry for my essay on Amazon, just wanted to give my true opinions.

Abusive work.
Fulfillment Associate (Employé actuel) –  Calgary, AB22 juillet 2019
I use the term 'abusive work' to describe how the job is more physically demanding then they lead you to believe and does not pay for the amount of work you do. They expect you to act like robots, not humans. The work is extremely tedious and mind-numbing.
Points positifs
Sometimes free lunch, some of the floor mangers are good people
Points négatifs
Long hours

A meat grinder
Front Half Stower (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB10 juin 2019
A meat grinder that will grind you up and spit you out when it is done with you, zero concern for any medical condition. Will refuse any doctors note and will fire you without notice if you do not meet their standard. Amazon is the equivelant of a dystopia.
Points positifs

Amazon Fulfillment Leaves You Unfulfilled
Area Manager (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB18 mai 2019
Cons:
- Well known management hiring bias for Indian ethnicity (in Canada).
- High turnover across all business functions
- Poor work life balance - in the contract, you are only supposed to work ~40 hours, 4 days per week, but it ends up being ~60 hours per week across 5-6 days sometimes.
- No concern for Area Manager mental or physical well-being.
- Stock compensation is not enticing as the turnover is ~6 months, and you would need to stay ~5 years to claim it all.
- Company does not follow their own Leadership Principles.
- Shifts are changed frequently and not known prior to accepting the offer.
- Toxic call-out culture.


Pros:
- Good base salary (if you don't calculate the number of hours worked)
- Company growth. If you can last > 1 year, you can transfer out of an FC.
- International training opportunities.
- Signing bonus
