Not the best place to work

Area Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

ProsGood relocation compensation.
3 days off.

ConsAmazon treats it's employees really poorly.
You have no say in what shift you will work...you basically sell your soul to the company.
Work extremely long hours.
Extremely disorganized company.
Don't offer any type of valuable training.
Expected to micromanage even though they claim that it's not what they want to do.
Very high turn over rate.
Amazon doesn't do anything to keep it's managers happy.
Work environment feels like a sweatshop.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
