Hard work but good pay
Packer (Former Employee) –  Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire18 July 2018
Good for a temporary job as the wage is good especially if you are doing night shifts.
Other than that , you have to work like a machine all day/night long.
Pros
Free Coffee, Time and Half and Double Pay
Cons
Work like a machine to meet targets

fast paced work
Warehouse Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ridgmont, Bedfordshire18 July 2018
sometimes even if you work fast it is difficult to get target. supervisor will try to help but sometimes target seems difficult to complete.


transport to and from work is good, when it is busy at peak you need to get to transport before local buses start.
Pros
transport is cheap
Cons
not many

amazon comes first

Pros
close to home

not for everybody

Physically and mentally stressful.
Picker (Former Employee) –  Rugeley12 July 2018
The breaks are short and the targets are really high. You are constantly on your feet and it starts to become really painful. When break begins half of the fulfillment centre take it at any given time and you will have to go through security checks before getting to your locker. Not only that there is a massive queue waiting to get through the only 2 gates. The wage is also minimum for the work you do.
Pros
Some of the people
Cons
Short breaks, High targets, Minimum wage

Night Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  North West11 July 2018
I had an amazing time working for Amazon and would help work for them again. The benefits are fantastic not to mention a good weekly wage shifts are a bit awkward but can easily work around them.

Terrible!
Multi Drop Driver (Former Employee) –  Coalville10 July 2018
Was not told I would be self employed until I started so no holiday or sick, lots of waiting around, terrible route wasting time and fuel, easily 12h shift without commute, had to work every weekend, can't chose your shifts.
Pros
none.
Cons
long hours with no choice but to do them.

Great place compared to other warehouses
Picker/Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Daventry, Northamptonshire10 July 2018
good canteen, good managers that listened to employees requests.
sometimes the software system caused jams and that got people nervous.
Morning and lunch briefs
easy job though it required constant attention as mistakes could have endangered others. The long hours and having to do the same action repeatedly could have taken your attention away sometimes.
Pros
good canteen, good managers, clean place and listened to employees
Cons
long hours having to do the same action repeatedly which can distract your attention

Christmas Temp (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, Cambridgeshire9 July 2018
working at amazon is a hard place to work if your not used to the fast pace work, the pay is good but can take over your life. working nights is good and you work 3 days off 4 days on but it takes it toll after a few days.
Pros
Good Money
Cons
lack of family life

Hard place to work
Stower (Former Employee) –  Rugeley7 July 2018
It pays well, but it takes all your time. They don`t see every body equal and they try to keep you only for a short time. They solve every issue or conflict through releasing the involved persons.
Pros
good pay rate
Cons
Some times it makes you feel like a slave. Depressing

Good salary, bad atmosphere
Sortation operator (Former Employee) –  Dunfermline2 July 2018
Good work, quite a good salary, social conditions as far as ok. Unfortunately, not the best organization of work, quite a turnover of employees. The practitioners were unpleasant. low-level leadership is to be unprepared, unpredictable and chaotic.

Not too hard but draining work
Warehouse Operative (Current Employee) –  Leicester, Leicestershire2 July 2018
I’ve been working at Amazon for nearly half a year now and so far it’s been alright. Most of the people you come across seem nice and pleasant and the work isn’t too difficult. However, the breaks are far too short and due to the size of the place you’ll be rushing around in the time you want to put your feet up and relax. The agencies are not very understanding either and I’ve been given warnings about absences due to family emergencies and the fact that I sustained an injury to my leg (and 10 hours of putting pressure on it is agony) so beware! Probably not a long term thing for most people
Pros
Coffee machines are free, meet some nice folks
Cons
Long hours, short breaks, have to be on your feet for 10 hours

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Bournemouth Airport26 June 2018
At a rate of £9 an hour, the job did pay really well. As well as a good management who were genuinely good to talk to, the job didn't provide much else.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Night shift

soul destroying, grim place to work
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Swansea, Swansea21 June 2018
soul destroying, grim place to work
Good for if you enjoy working both as and with robots.
The breaks are horrific, far too short and the place too massive.
I could say much more but Its just not worth my time.
Pros

Cons
too many

Worst job I ever had, bad for mental health
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Warrington21 June 2018
I would advise all, especially students to stay clear of amazon, especially around winter. Long hours, lack of sunlight and being stuck in a metal container all day results in a very negative working environment. Staff are polite, as are managers but the conditions you are working in are like non i have seen before. The money is good, and there are benefits, If you can hack being stuck in a solitary position with no communication for 10 hours then this job is perfect, but for me I felt lonely at Amazon.
Pros
benefits of using the company for pick ups. Free bus from Liverpool
Cons
Long hours, boring work, not suited to those who like to express themselves at work
