Pros
Provident fund, medical and transport.
Cons
Long hours, stressful at times.

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.

Amazon has become an abusive company to staff members,, the company gives you new skills almost every month and you do not get paid an extra cent to work those extra skills. Top performers gets a chocolate and a R50 voucher to use in the canteen, no extra payment for your 110% and no compensation for the extra workload that gets dropped on you.

I was at Book Depository, where you would receive emails from customers wanting to know about the books they have bought and when it can be expected to arrive. The hardest would be the long working hours.

The company overall is great, but job security is not so good as you will be out as fast as you got in. Management don't really care about employees except themselves. Lots of pressure during festive season and forced overtime. Perks is free company transport though.

Awesome company. Great benefits. However, you won't progress in the company if you point out wrong behaviour of managers. How do you expect workers to conduct themselves if managers don't do the same. You loose your job based on what people think of you instead of the excellent work you produce.

Amazon has a great salary and benefit policy. But when I say the managers are actually bad people they are. This company would be a really good place to work at if the people weren't always staring at you. Or making false promises.

Amazon is a great company to work for. From Management to staff, you are well taken care of. Their is obviously some things that you don't always agree with but it's never to your detriment. Amazon offers medical aid benefits, study bursaries and so much growth.
