Amazon Employee Reviews
Why did you leave Amazon?
I was an Intern
I was an Intern
Being able to see how I improved and what held me back every day.
Working with so many people. Everyone was able to tell me different tips and tricks to improve my skills.
I would be in a different department every day, so you had to know and remember each job function and safety guidelines.
Support Senior Management by providing information through liaison with the Customer
Carry out duties in accordance with Standard Operating Procedures
Carry out security checks prior to the end of the shift.
Assign work to staff as required to support the workflow and daily metrics.

To work effectively and produce good result in difficult situation.
It was a seasonal job during holiday period only.
Worked as an associate , working as a team at different places , basically packing and shipment.
I have a vast experience of my naval service , working as head of Marina Club and then an insight at Amazon , certainly provides edge over many others.
Very well, was mostly busy at the job assigned by them.
Not much but did bring to the notice of my supervisor a careless approach in packing where tapes came off from the boxes, and not enough air pillows were inserted which left the goods rattling.
No, since it was a seasonal job , the period of employment lasted only during the peak season.
It is incredibly difficult to climb the ladder. Over the last 27 months, only 2 associates have been promoted, out of over 100 leaders.
I looked at overall workflow in the entire outbound sector. I was responsible for controlling picker behavior, delegating labor moves through constant communication with area managers and supervisors, plan staffing for future shipment deadlines, gauge volume goals, lead team of package slip runners and occasionally did ops work, like predicting headcounts for each departments, spreading the headcount evenly to balance out capacity and send emails to senior leadership teams of predicted hours and units shipped.
It allowed me to look at business from a customer needs perspective. We look at customer obsession and that drives our motivation. I feel that culture translate perfectly with your business.
Amazon wasn't the right fit for me.
I was an engineering operation technician
I have worked for a very large company with in the data center industry
I got along great with my managers, both were fantastic
I suggested to have a better training program for new hires, so they can be beneficial within the work place.
No, I was not offered an advancement.
