I first started working for PMP Recruitment in September 2012 at Amazon at Swansea, it was my first full time job since School and I found it very overwhelming at first as I couldn’t believe the size of the building once inside. I started working in the inbound department receiving goods that came into the building. I was brought in as part of the Christmas temporary team and was let go then on 30th December 2012.
I enjoyed my time at Amazon and so I stayed in touch with PMP Recruitment so that I could come back as soon as work started to pick up again. They called me a few months later and I re-joined the Swansea Fulfillment center on the 3rd of March 2013. This time I was here for a much longer term and stayed until 8th of January 2014.
After having some time off, I decided that I would return to Amazon again as I had thoroughly enjoyed my previous assignments. Therefore, I came back on the 31st of July 2014. I was again in the inbound department and was trained in many different aspects and processes of the job, which was great for me as I felt that my skills were being developed. I have continued to return to Amazon as I have found it to be a great place to work. The managers and associates have always been friendly and approachable and I have always felt part of the team here. Not once have I ever felt any sort of divide due to the fact that I am a temporary worker. Everyone is treated with respect.
All on site staff have been excellent. If I have ever needed anything, someone has always been at hand to help. The Amazon and PMP Recruitment Agency managers seem to work as one team and it is refreshing to be able to get on with my work, knowing that any queries or problems are dealt with promptly.
I have now been offered the chance to stay with Amazon on a permanent contract as a result of my hard work. I can see myself being here for a long time and hopefully I will be able to pursue a career with their IT department, having studied this in college.
I would recommend working at Amazon to anyone. Whether you are looking for a short term job just to get some extra money for Christmas, or whether you would like to pursue a long term career here, it is all possible with the ongoing support of the PMP Recruitment and Amazon on site teams.
