An alright place to work if you can dedicate yourself solely to the company.

Amazon isn’t a great place to work. The hours are long and tedious, and the three days you have off arent really what you think. You definitely won’t have a ton of time to yourself, especially not when they enter their peak season or prime week, where you can expect to work 60 hour weeks, likely 4-5 weeks in a row. If not more, should your FC management get permission to extend it. All being said, if the pay was worth it, it probably wouldn’t be as much of an issue. But with a starting wage that, at least in my area, wasn’t even livable, it’s really hard to convince yourself to go back to work day in and day out. Make no mistake, no one in the work area will care who you are, unless your rate is amazing or you go out of your way to cause issues. You’re under constant surveillance, so best of luck if you say or do anything big brother doesn’t like.
Tons of overtime
Long hours, weak starting wage, disorganized management, high pressure
