Pros
Good pay and good benifits
Cons
Long days, very gruelling, feels prison like

Good pay, poor job security.
Warehouse work, primarily picking and packing (Former Employee) –  Tilbury, Essex13 January 2019
Long hours and good pay are excellent.

But continued employment depends on not getting on the wrong side of one of the constantantly changing managers.

Give constantly growing targets. Meeting them doesn’t garantee continued employment.
Pros
Free drinks, good pay
Cons
Suprise firing or ‘letting you go’ will tell you when you arrive for a days work

Not great
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Dunstable9 January 2019
Poor management, but good pay.
Little break times which are wasted walking to the canteen which is rather far away
Time off task is monitored meticulously to the point where you will be told off for what they consider to be an excessive amount of toilet breaks

Hard work, bad support.
Stower (Former Employee) –  Swansea8 January 2019
The managers show no support for employees. Even when doing the job, in the stowing department at least, they stopped you from having a friendly chat with colleagues. If you want your soul sucked out as effectively as kissing a Dementor, go for it.
Pros
none
Cons
long hours, no support from managers, no benefits. Treat staff as they do in America- which is badly.

Terrible place to work for
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Warrington, Cheshire3 January 2019
Hated everything about it! Would earn more money doing the same hours on minimum wage. 10 mins to load your van that you have to pay for yourself. Out far too early to be knocking at peoples houses.if no reply then to take back at end of run rather than return to Amazon. there is more but can't be bothered typing any more.
Pros
none
Cons
everything

very regimented structured workplace
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire2 January 2019
This position was in the runup to Christmas , Amazons busiest period.
The dayshift started at 7am through to 6.30pm - although we were contracted to work a 4 day week it was compulsory at this time of year to work a 5th day too , which was paid at 1.5x normal wage rate.

A typical day would be a 7am start through to a 30 minute break at 11.30am , working 12am through to a 2nd break at 3pm , and finally working 3.30pm to end of day at 6.30pm.

It was very much a heads down and get the job done kind of environment , in many ways a classic warehouse operation that was still very labour intensive.
Pros
Subsidised food in the canteen and free tea/coffee were useful
Cons
Very long days, especially the first morning shift until first break.
