    I worked at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay rate, great equipment to help you with your work, not bad benefits, people with great experience

    Cons

    Issues with connections, super stressful job, training structure is not bad but definitely could be better, long shifts,

    Advice to Management

    Every single place that offers a position as customer service is known as very stressful place to work. Try to find and build another structure of the job presenting at the start so people might last, because when you put everything into it and thought this is going to be a long time career, it just after week felt that much stressful that you become sure this not gonna last long. Other than that it is great to have people from a long time working there and they are successful, but wouldn't it be great if we hearing for more people who stayed long even tho they were new. :) don't be the place where is like every elsewhere, to be exact stressful.
