An overall safe enviroment with many oppertunities to advance within the company.

Integrity Coach (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN (US)

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

ProsSafety was a huge priority with Amazon. They personally train evey employee and expect each associate to meet a general quota by the end of a week. The overall facility is extremely well organized and clean. Generally, most associates are kind and willing to aid one another to ensure an overall success for the company.

ConsAt times, the quota to make is slightly out of reach for associates not physically fit for their position. There is no forwarning of the end of your assignment, so termination is swift and unforseen. Breaks are not given in full as associates are expected to be back at their stations exactly at the end of each break. To make it back to your station in time, you often have to cut your break short in order to avoid receiving a written warning from your area manager.

Advice to Senior ManagementAll managers ask associates to make the general standards set by Amazon so no favortism takes place. Managers often offer advice to help increase the rate of associates not quite making their quota.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
