ONLY if they permit me to use hoverboard or roller skates on the job, as Picker.
ReJ Bru (2 days ago)
:) She asked why those two put together? The guy said to optimize their space. In my opinion, it is mainly due to buying those two together is much higher. That's why they are not far apart. It is very interesting to see that companies can learn so much from customers' buying behaviors and their purchase histories to optimize their offers to maximize sales.

women can't work this job . the hair, nails , makeup,shoes,clothes,gossip doesn't work in a warehouse . i once saw a bimbo talking to someone and she wasn't watching what she was doing , her hair got caught in the machine and she was pulled in . the machine was immediately stopped and so much of her hair was tangled that the rescuers had to surgically remove parts of her scalp to get her out . i thought it was awesome , the girl would talk shit about me all the time and watching her cry was so satisfying . i smiled at her when she got out and patted her on the back and said " well , at least you didn't harm your pretty face "

Ugh I honestly feel depressed even watching this. I could never do a repetitive factory job like this. You never get to even see the sun. If you guys are looking for a decent job without a degree try working for usps as a mail carrier. Best decision I ever made.

Hope they get a teabreak and lunch. I and others never did at the Amazon fulilment I worked at. Slave labour at its best. The reporter need to see what workers have to put up with. "You can go to the toilet when you like but do not expect a job tomorrow" we were repeadly told. The random strip searches in front of people. Human rights at its best. I saw a shift manager and a site manager shout a swear about Amazon and walked out of their jobs. ALL Amazon staff are treated the same. Once I saw a lady being wheelbarrowed out of the warehouse ( barrow from stock) as she slipped and broke her ankle. Amazon refused NHS emergency paramedics entry. Big sign still said one million hours with no accident. So much stuff gets stolen, its a inside job, Security staff at its best. This reporter want to come back later as a undercover reporter and see the same Amazon person in this video shout and swear at staff and see no workers ot humanity rights. Well Amazon is a TimeW-AOL Jed Bush and family and JPMC invested company. Where did you think the founder got his startup money from ? Amazon treats staff (ALL) like the film Demolition Man.

It is amazing this gets done. However Walmart has the same items for the same price and you can have it now!! Not to mention if you call electronic stores you can get better prices. Amazon is not the cheapest, just convenient.
jmitch1481 (3 months ago)
Wal-Mart doesn't have the amount of items Amazon does. You can't walk into Wal-Mart and find a rare book. I price shop too. They don't always have better prices either. Or prime service

Easy folks, this was uploaded in 2010, and the warehouse they are in is not newly built, just look at the condition of the floors. Time travel to 2017, I work fulfillment processing in one of their newly built nearly 1 million sq ft warehouses with state of the art safety systems, climate control, and robotics systems that cut down on approx 85% of the human foot travel. Youd get almost nothing done if you had to do all the work the robotics does. Even those conveyor belt systems shown are old school compared to what we have now. Yes its fast paced, and you HAVE to focus(no dildos to Grandma Jenkins instead of Slutty Sally), and you have to WANT to do and enjoy the work. The staff is very diverse and you will see how easy that is in the background when it comes to having a blast at company events with those folks and their families. As one other commenter said, the perks, the adjusted and balanced scheduling( 5 4hr days/4 10hr days), the awe-inspiring environment, and a ton of other things make this an amazing opportunity for anyone that gets hired with a blue badge(Amazonian, not temp).

Hey which position involves the least amount of overhead movements or lifting heavy shit (>50 lbs)? I am considering working for Amazon but I have shoulder issues so the things mentioned above could be really uncomfortable to deal with for long shifts. I don't being on the feet, or walking but if it mostly organizing small shit or what?

Amazon workers need to be paid a lot more . Along with Walmart . Any billion dollar company should pay well. And give decent bonuses and healthcare .
Immortalkalashnikov (1 year ago)
Why would they pay them more? Look at how these people work, they're slow as hell.
BlackWorldTraveler (1 year ago)
Jess King Or you can seek higher education. Learn a marketable skill. Start your own business like Bezos did. This really isn't anything new. Been there done that. But if you don't like it you either adapt or find another.
Jess King (1 year ago)
I hate hearing people who sit down all day say " God in so tired from work " come work in a warehouse then say your tired .
