Prime Day, Amazon's biggest shopping event, is here, and now one-day shipping is the norm for tens of millions of items available during Amazon's Prime Day event, which runs from July 15 to July 16. To succeed at this rapid delivery, Amazon spends tens of billions of dollars every year and employs 250,000 workers in its U.S. warehouses. The process is an incredible challenge, and Amazon has faced criticism about working conditions at every step of the process. Watch the video to see what happens when you buy a Prime-eligible item on Amazon.com.

How Amazon Delivers On One-Day Shipping
what the heck.. if you don't like working for amazon.. work somewhere else.. they offer 15$ an hour which is cool
Narcis Balog (19 hours ago)
we have one-day shipping in Romania since 2015. The best part of it is that we also have services that get our package delivered ( if it’s available) in maximum 2 hours

Once I ordered a fridge and whoops I turn around and it's standing right there in my kitchen. The drone that delivered it was just closing the door while I was thinking about reaching my shotgun.

ask about overworked, underpaid, and undermined warehouse workers. and ask about the last mile delivery person. ask why they no longer use Fed Ex. Ask what their relationship with UPS is now. you know ..ask real questions. you people need to do a better job vetting information before you keep spreading misinformation. most of the warehouses are staffed by staffing agencies so when illegal treatment of employees is called into question Amazon sloughs off responsibility by pointing fingers at the staffing agencies despite amazon telling those staffing agencies how to manage worker issues while posted to amazon warehouse positions. Amazon isnt about safety its about that bottom line where employees are 3-5 x likely to suffer work related injuries. this must be posted by someone paid to push positive PR for amazon despite the fact Amazon is now involved in an investigation by local politicians and employment law legal representatives.

DianeInTucson (6 days ago)
I did data entry at Old Pueblo Trader catalog house here in Tucson, Arizona and we got so many returns because they stressed quantity over quality on us. I had a low error rate so was top of lay-off list while others put through fast errors but that was what the company wanted. America is putting themselves out of work because while Americans are demanding more pay causing all product costs to increase to GIVE them that increase the company then has to compete with overseas companies who can charge less for their goods which people like me on fixed income who now can no longer afford to PAY for these higher priced products is forced to buy or go without. We have become a country where it is everyone for himself/herself and damn the rest but they don't realize they are damning themselves in the whole along with it. :(

these places look like modern day workhouses...sweatshops..also who gives a crap about 1 day delivery. if I buy online I just want it cheaper, I am prepared to sacrifice having the item in my hand immediately for a cheaper product in a few days or even longer...

I entered a Bezos unfriendly password and this Hollywood a**hole banned my account. Why would I do business from a firm that snoops out my password?
Lala (9 days ago)
I would happily go back to 3-5 day shipping if it means that they wouldn't work their employees to death or replace them with robots. Shipping speed is not the reason why I buy from Amazon. I feel like they're killing their workers over something that many customers never asked for.

The facilities are nice. But it takes 11 minutes to walk to the break room. 11 minutes to walk back. So you have 8 minutes to try to fight 200+ people to get your food, eat, smoke, bathroom break, etc. Each section has leaders with clip boards and watches to time each employee. 30 seconds over your break you get half point. 3 points and you're fired
Yavuz Adam (12 days ago)

Productivity Rates are VERY EASY to hit at Amazon, and it's not possible to hit rates during the November-December season because of the high demand of product, and the amount of employees in the aisles picking product, THEREFORE Amazon changes the policy in "peak season" to be forgiving on lower rates. Amazon is a great company to work for, and continues improving their model to better serve the customer and employees. I work at Amazon as a product picker.

All over the world there is a talk about cutting down the pollution, and here some of us being lazy to go to the store encouraging to destroy the environment.

I really found this quite interesting and informative...However, whats wrong with Americans putting packages on the doorstep where it can be stolen easily?? Don't you like...ring the door? Or have "pickup points" Does this not exist in America? i'm so confused? If i get a package, they ring the door, if nobody's home, it goes to one of dozens of nearby "pickup points" where you can then go fetch it, so that your stuff doesn't get stolen
