Working at Amazon.com was a great experience. The shifts was a bit heavy. Abnormal i would say if you're not used to working at flexible hours. Transport is provided depending on the shift you're working.

Everyday is day 1 at Amazon. This means you earn something new everyday. Amazon is one of the best companies anyone can work for, you teach and yu learn.

Good and fun environment and can be stressful at times but very understanding management. We are offered free coffee and tea and taking some breaks if we need a short breather. I love how management sees themselves as one of us and not as a cut above the rest. They are very supportive and approachable.

Great company to work for, however, if working night shift, it becomes difficult for your life not to revolve around work due to working all night and sleeping all day.

I enjoyed working at amazon.com. The management was a little informal primarily because we were seasonal staff hired for the December peak. I learnt retail and Echo skills which presented an opportunity to develop negotiation and technical skills. The salary was very pleasing and given a second chance I would do it again. I was expecting a more permanent role but pity the fun was short lived.
Pros
Free Fruits and pop corn
Cons
Manager has ultimate to decide employee fate.

Very energetic place to work. Great management and guidance. Work culture is fun and customer orientated. Hardest thing are rude customers. Most enjoyable part of working for amazon is the top performer prizes.

Good company.. Great Culture.. I love the open door culture, whereby you are able to speak to any manager you'd like, even the general manager, the office doors are literally never closed, allowing anyone to talk to them at any given time. Work life is great, remuneration is okay.

The company is a great start and a great place to work for young people trying to gain experience and/or build a career. You are given opportunities to learn, grow and advance your skills in the company and have a relatively good earning potential if you are a good employee with good attendance, stats and leadership qualities. To advance continuously though you need to dedicate yourself to the company and be well known for your work and involvement initiatives with their hardcore 'leadership principles'. Management varies from department to department but one thing is clear - your working hours and shifts are controlled by the company so you need to be able to be flexible with regards to your own personal and family life. Some managers are good and some not so good, Seller Support is probably a department to stay away from although the pay is good, the expectations are ridiculous, the rules draconian and always changing and increasing. AWS is probably one of the most sought after positions with a good reputation in management, working hours and general good office vibes. The building is situated in a nice quiet part of town, in Gardens with the gym and Wembley Square right next to the building and has nice views.
Pros
Good career growth, free transport, pay above industry standards
Cons
24/7 Shifts, Occasional bad management

Amazon.com strives to be Earth's Most Customer Centric Company. This is the most important Company saying as agents give their all on every single contact/call and agents receive the same regard as internal customers.Its an awesome environment to grow and realize and utilize your potential. But its not all work, Amazon believes in being peculiar. This gives an opportunity for all employees to try and come up with fund ways to improve work ethic and just have some crazy fun. ranging from Pajama parties while at work, potluck, supporting sports, cultural exchange and so much more.
Pros
meeting and working with extraordinary people who believe in think and doing out-the-box
Cons
the site now running 24/7, and there is no growth in permanent hiring.
