Things you should know about working in an Amazon Pantry facility:

  • Shifts alternate. The first week you’ll work 3 days a week, the next you’ll work 4 days a week, then back to 3, then 4, and so on. Each day will be 11 hours a day. For example, your shift will alternate between Sunday – Tuesday and Sunday – Wednesday or Thursday – Saturday and Wednesday – Saturday.
  • 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.
  • 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.     
  • We like to keep you on your toes, associates will rotate tasks multiple times throughout the week.
  • 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 facility may vary between 60 and 90 degrees, and will occasionally exceed 90 degrees

Got it? Okay, but what will you actually be doing?

  • All hands on deck! 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
