Here are four of the most important lessons I learned from working at Amazon.
- You can’t escape a company’s work culture. You may have your dream position, but the wrong company culture can ruin everything.
- Find your passion and avoid complacency. I had two other corporate jobs before Amazon.
- Choose kindness.
Is working at Amazon really that bad?
Said that Amazon is not a good place to work if you work only in “Java” or specific technology. Salary: While not the highest in the industry it is not less. Amazon stocks have in general done better than other companies so that is a big plus. Perks: Compared to other companies (Google, Microsoft, etc) it is less.
Is it worth working at Amazon?
“Amazon is full of opportunity. It can be an exciting, dynamic place to work where you learn a lot every day,” said an anonymous employee on Glassdoor. “Many teams at Amazon are flexible and provide supportive work environments with ample opportunities for career development and growth,” the employee said.
What is the dress code for working at Amazon?
Relaxed dress code
Amazon has a casual work environment company-wide, so nobody is wearing a suit or tie. In fulfillment centers, there may be some limitations for safety reasons, but it’s basically Casual Friday every day.
How much do they pay at Amazon?
“In the U.S., the average hourly wage for a full-time associate in our fulfillment centers, including cash, stock, and incentive bonuses, is over $15/hour before overtime,” the company said. Amazon also stressed additional benefits like health plans, job training and “generous parental leave.”
