Good for the customers but looks like a deadening place to work: people being flattened by robots. And $11/hr. is too little.

This pandering nonsense doesn't fool those who know it's a slave shop. "Even spotted a toilet"! Many of their imported slaves don't know what a toilet is.

I'm on the machine that sends an overwhelming shit tone of packages and everyone has too rush their asses off to make 1B2's 1AD, A3's 1B4's and all that, while the machine crowds up with boxes. That damn thing pisses me off, cuz it is relentless and WILL ALWAYS clogg up, with items. It's even worse when there's only 2 people at a god damn station.

If you have a mind and you know what job suits you , You should stop with saying people should be paid allot more then another person who does a different job .. People should all be getting paid the same amount . That way many aren't going for jobs just because the money pays good.

Seems like they got everything right in their distribution, now if they can come up with a way of making sure the customer gets their product safely other than leaving it the open when they deliver.it.

I'm not lazy, I'm a hard old school worker. I've liked jobs that people hated. but when a company doesn't allow workers to have their phones in the building, it's not for the employees safety. when you can't use the bathroom or can't take your breaks cause it'll show up as you taking longer then you did. it's sad that I see something like this in American. not being able to use the bathroom unless it's on your break. now imagine what they say to us...

It's hard on the body for the pickers for sure. I was sore all week my first week. My feet bled and my back went out but because I wasn't there for 23 days I didn't get work comp or medical help. Now that it's been over 3 months I still haven't gotten anything. Everything seems to be run outside the warehouse and online or over a phone call. Feels like skynet a little bit. My paychecks were under 200 bucks a week. Not very much but it paid for gas. The pay is 11.75 for seasonal and you get 50 cents more every 6 months. While working youre basically standing or doing squats for the full 10 hour shift minus 30 minute lunch and two 15 minute breaks. My take is it's definitely slave work but they hire anyone who isn't on drugs or have a criminal record so stay in school and only work here if you're out of options

Tom Sanger (22 days ago)
Because its made in China.
Nikki H. (27 days ago)
Brad Belk because the boxes do get tossed about. Most of the people working pallets don’t gaf about the what or the how, just moving the product to get it out. Blame the higher-ups. Blame The truck drivers.

1 week ago All across the country companies are hiring industrial engineers to establish time standards for warehouses to make them more efficient. More often than not, these engineers have no warehouse experience and poor understanding of its operations. Errors which these engineers are making are resulting in unsafe working conditions for company employees operating heavy equipment. The result is hundreds of wrongful terminations and serious injuries, violations of workers contracts, and even deaths. This document explains, in detail, the mistakes a very large percentage of these engineers are making. https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vSyo2fyq2kOW2Ly3Dz2DnoWJGIjY-nxCALTWfv8BkTt6PVecMPWenGtPhnW66Cg142G4rwGNNFPPqTm/pub Please SHARE THIS DOCUMENT with other production warehouse workers, especially if they were injured or wrongfully terminated as a result of these mistakes mentioned.

propaganda. do you even understand what that is? no, you don't. look at an approved vid from a chinese slave labor factory: "everything is great and we are treated well!". you are lied to constantly. always ask "who, what, where, when, why, how" and then follow the money...the money never lies.

I see a problem with the comment section and the way Amazon works. I see a lot of comments saying Amazon isn't the brightest or most "fun" place to work. It's hard labor and it crushes your soul. Ok. I get that. But when Amazon introduces robots that would do this "hard labor" we all complain and worry that robots would take over our jobs.

I had a bad experience with Amazon. I never received my package, they say that it "delivered" and for bonus they charged me over 60 euro for 16 euro product when in the order it was 19 euro. Big corporate like Amazon don't really care and no way to complain. I learned never to order again from Amazon.

I clicked on the yellow button and watched Amazon sit on the order for 8 days before it was processed, then waited 2 more days for it to ship. Then I found out it was being shipped by AMZL, which means the odds of getting the package is very iffy.

I love Amazon, I often wish I was rich so I can shop every day of the week, I hate dealing with people at dept stores and it's so convenient, the best part is waiting for your package to arrive, it makes you feel like a kid waiting for christmas.

26,000 ft/8,666.6 yds divided by 100 employees which means one person is responsible to cover 260 yards ( 2.5 football fields) in order for the place to make money, and the employee to keep their jobs. l'm not so sure I'd be smiling). Yeah, I know, they don't physically cover 2.5 football fields, but, they do contribute to paying the rent on it.
