Job Overview

You'll be part of the Amazon warehouse team that gets orders ready for customers relying on Amazon services. Our fast-paced, physical roles take place in a variety of areas including merch, make-on-demand, customer returns, Prime Now, and general fulfillment. You will be selecting, packing, and shipping orders - in some cases, for our super-fast (2-hour or less) delivery service.

Duties & Responsibilities

Some of your duties may include:

  • Receive and put away inventory

  • Get customer orders ready and pack them up

  • Load boxes into trucks for shipment

  • Use scanners to read bar codes on products

  • View prompts on screens and follow the direction for some tasks

  • Troubleshoot problems

  • Ensure product meets quality requirements

  • Operate power industrial trucks (PIT) such as a forklift or pallet driver, and work at heights up to 35 feet. Equipment training and certification are provided free of cost.

You'll also need to be able to:

  • Lift up to 49 pounds

  • Push utility carts up to 60 pounds

  • Stand, walk, push, pull, squat, bend, and reach during shifts

  • Use carts, dollies, hand trucks, and other gear to move items around

  • Work at a height of up to 40 feet on a mezzanine (where applicable)

  • Adhere to strict safety, quality, and fulfillment production standards

What it's like at an Amazon Fulfillment Center

  • Safety. Your safety is important to us, so we provide protective gear. All teams share safety tips daily.

  • Surroundings. You'll be working around moving machines - order pickers, stand-up forklifts, turret trucks, and mobile carts.

  • Activity. Some activities may require standing in one place for long periods, walking around, or climbing stairs.

  • Temperature. Even with climate controls, temperatures can vary between 60F and 90F in some parts of the warehouse; on hot days, temperatures can be over 90F in the truck yard or inside trailers.

  • Noise level. It can get noisy at times. We provide hearing protection if you need it.

  • Dress code. Relaxed, with a few rules to follow for safety. Comfortable, closed-toe shoes are required. Depending on the role or location, Amazon provides a $110 Zappos gift code towards the purchase of shoes, in order to have you prepared for your first day on the job.

Why You'll Love this Job

  • Stay busy. You and your team are engaged the entire shift.

  • Schedule options. Depending on where you work, schedules may include full-time (40 hours), reduced-time (30-36 hours) or part-time (20 hours or less), all with the option of working additional hours if needed.

  • Shift flexibility. Work when it works for you. Shifts may include overnight, early morning, day, evening, and weekend. You can even have four-day workweeks, three-day weekends - and with Anytime Shifts, you can work as little as four hours per week.

  • Career advancement. We have made a pledge to upskill our employees and offer a variety of free training and development programs, and we also have tuition support options for select employee groups. See where your Amazon journey can take you.

  • New skills. Depending on the role and location, you'll learn: how to operate a garment press and high-capacity printer, a t-shirt folding machine, how to assist with the print production process, or how to receive and process customer returns.

  • Free training. Depending on the role and location, we'll teach you how to drive power industrial trucks (PIT) such as forklifts or a pallet driver, how the printing process works, and how to work with the latest Amazon technology - including robots.

  • Team environment. Work on small or large teams that support each other.
