  • 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
