What people are saying about sick pay at Amazon

  • Best thing

    The pay is decent

    Worst thing

    The time we start and finish is late. The amount of drops/deliveries is a lot. Always feel rushed some drivers don’t take breaks in able to do all deliveries.

  • Best thing

    The team i work with are all close nit and get along well and we always have a good laugh

    Worst thing

    our department isnt to bad, however the other departments, breaks are super monitored, everything you do is monitored and the pay isnt really that good, and if your a smoker i wouldnt recommend working with amazon, you can go a full day without a smoke or having to choose between food or smokes on your break

  • Best thing

    Other colleagues are like family

    Worst thing

    The amount of physical activity is needed for a long shift. Also breaks are quite short

  • Best thing

    Free Coffee

    Worst thing

    Second by second tracking of speed, quality, and toilet breaks


    Amazon Associate, July 2022

  • Best thing

    5 hours of ‘flexi’ to get away from the place

    Worst thing

    Management treating you as a number, like your opinions aren’t relevant. Making decisions and then blaming the team for the consequences instead of owning up. CONSTANT CIGARETTE BREAKS
