Continue reading, you’re on your way to your new adventure with Amazon.
Things you should know about working in an Amazon Fulfillment center:
• Safety, it’s more than wearing a reflective vest. We’re committed to providing one of the safest work environments, which means stretching, safety tips, and yes…following the rules.
• Customer-obsession. It makes your day to make someone else happy.
• Quality is key. You have high standards, and it shows in your work. We’ll hold you to it, but only because we know our associates can handle it.
• Can you hear me now? Noise level varies and can sometimes be loud.
• Cool with casual. A relaxed dress code means it’s Casual Friday every day.
• Amazon lets customers order whatever they need, whenever they need. Flexibility is key, associates should be open to extra hours, time off, and a rapid pace.
• Temperature in the fulfillment center may vary between 60 and 90 degrees, and will occasionally exceed 90 degrees.
Got it? Okay, but what will you actually be doing?
• You’ve got mail. Receive products using frequency scanners and unload shipments from trucks.
• Cozy kicks. You’ll stand in one place for extended periods of time, and be walking a good distance around the facility – good shoes are a must!
• Hands-on experience. You can expect to handle packages from small envelopes to boxes ranging up to 49 pounds.
• On the move. You should be willing and able to operate carts, dollies, hand trucks and other moving equipment to move large quantities of merchandise.
• Potential opportunity to operate PIT equipment; special training is offered to associates based on interest and availability.
