Things you should know about working in an Amazon Sortation 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.
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 sort center may vary between 60 and 90 degrees, and will occasionally exceed 90 degrees.
Got it? Okay, but what will you actually be doing?
Sorting packages based on size and destination, it can be a little like Tetris with boxes, envelopes and pallets.
Pumped up 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!
Building pallets, wrapping pallets, transporting pallets with pallet jack, and sorting packages and pallets. Did someone say pallets?
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.
Potential opportunity to operate PIT equipment, special training is offered to associates based on interest and availability.
‘Round we go. Associates will be manually wrapping finished pallets, which means moving in a sideways, circular motion several times in a row. You’ve got your head on straight, we think you can handle it.
