I lasted about 2 weeks in one of their "fullfillment centers". They were sued by OSHA for not providing drinking water for their employees. They went through people like a hot knife through soft butter.

Maybe people need to start boycotting amazon! I know it's easy to say, but it can be done! They would have no choice but to start treating employees like humans!! Without employees customers can't receive orders, without customers there is no need for employees! The average person in numbers has A LOT OF POWER!!!!!

They do it because they can. If you can afford to (and the way governments have crafted the minimum wage employment market that may be unlikely) try a few mass walkouts. All for one, one for all.

Look at all these negative comments about labor conditions at Amazon. Yet, NBC reporting concludes its segment with a bit of good will from Jeff Bezos, wrapped nicely in an email, sent to his employees.

Not sure who buys from Amazon...most of the stuff on there is average quality. I buy less but good quality stuff. There are divisions within Amazon like Cloud services, video streaming, etc...that are decent places to work...like any other. But if you are on the retail side, Amazon is a low margin business and have to squeeze employees as much as they can to make pennies on the dollar. That is the nature of retail business...once you sign up for that you cannot complain IMO. FYI, I also find Whole Foods items of average quality. There are much better retailers online or in catalog direct markets...go work there?

I was a seasonal worker at Amazon for several years and I loved it. I will say this... If your out of shape or you're a slacker you will hate it for they have little tolerance for either. Advice... You cannot come off a couch and work an entry level job at Amazon, your muscles will cramp up and shut down after a couple weeks. Get up, get out and stay on your feet, go slow let your muscles condition when you can do this 5 days in a row, go apply for that job but bring aspirin for the first week or two.

Pure modern American slavery. All the escalated “ racial problems theme “ is to redirect attention from the crucial problem, to divide the struggling population, so they wouldn’t unite to strike the real enemy, the unfair system which was designed to serve the interests of people like Bezos. So, I call all black and white and yellow, unite ! We are in one boat! Take what rightfully should belong to you!

i dont get why people don't enjoy working at an Amazon I worked there as a regular associate for 3 years and i absolutely loved it. Only reason I left is because i got a high paying job at target. I thank amazon because i learned a lot from their management and they developed me into someone who had the potential to be considered for bigger and better things. I honestly think that without amazon I would not have developed myself to be as strong of a leader as i am today. I took what I learned from there and now at just 22 years of age I'm a high ranking manager for target and make more than my friends who finished school. Of course I am still enrolled myself and will still get my degree, but i give a lot of thanks to this company for giving me opportunities. Sometimes i wish i had stayed, maybe it would have been better in the long run. Who knows? I may go back as an Area Manager or hopefully even an operations manager. I normally dont even post about things like this but my life has changed drastically for me and my family because of this company.
K267 (2 месяца назад)
I can only speak for myself. I saw opportunities at this company, I took them and i thank this company for it. Great experience. That's all I have to say

Amazon may well be the most evil company in America today contributing to and not detracting from our homeless issues and deranged customer ethics. You are dying of cancer. You have just lost your unborn child. You have to care for your dying father. You are "suspect" of being unproductive according to your colleagues. They have reported you. You are fired! (Source: TheNextWeb) You're a ten-year Amazon customer. You're an Amazon Seller. You spend $1,000s a year. You have written 100s of reviews. Amazon sends an email saying you're "suspect." Your account is shut down! (Source: Gary Joseph, www.homelessinAmerica.BlogSpot.com) Amazon - no evidence, no trial, just the luxury of being "fat, dumb and happy!"

Ugh.  I hate companies like Amazon! They don't give a flying fig about their employees or customers.  I have made it my mission to shop locally and develop relationships with local shopkeepers and their workers. It may cost a little more, but it's so worth it to be greeted by name and share a bit of encouragement  or a funny story with them.
Todd Seligmann (4 дня назад)
RIGHT!? I'm unfortunately a worker at Amazon and I've done retail before. simply put seeing the people's names on packages doesn't get me any satisfaction that I'm really helping someone but never really getting notice by anyone. its more fun to give that good experience by talking to people rather working like robots

He donated $35 millin to these illegals.

If people hate working there, they should definitely quit. But blaming executives for having lavish lifestyles is ridiculous. The sheer amount of work and highly complicated organizational issues executives have to tackle on a daily basis is the reason why they get paid higher. Not to mention, years of education, competing against other coworkers to achieve their position. If youre not happy with your position, educate yourself and learn a valuable skill, start your own business and run the business the way it suits you. There are tons of free resources on the internet regarding to learning valuable skills that can be converted into money.

Absolutely the worst job I’ve ever had! I’m speaking to everyone who Is skeptical of how bad Amazon is. They are buying up everything! This means that sooner or later you may end up working for this Midevil torture Chamber-like company. Think about that for a sec. we may all end up here. It’s cartoonishly evil. When I step foot in there it’s like I’m in a bad 80s movie with bad people, bad managers, bad working environment, bad upper management, and a bad billionaire to boot! Anyone who has worked at Amazon knows exactly what I’m talking about. Oh, and by the way, say don’t pay any taxes! That’s right! A slow level workers paid more taxes than this billion company. I mean 0 in taxes! As a matter of fact the government pays them $125 per person. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you! HORRIBLE!

Best Buy warehouse is better to work the package line is to slow most of the time your just chilling after you keep up with your work or scanning but the down side are the the tv or microwave line for gift rap. Women don’t do heavy lifting so 2x the work for men but that not often
