The pile of clothes giving the tour said 15,000 temps, the description says 1,500!?!????

I'm guessing that, on days when the cameras are there, it's about the same situation as when food safety inspectors come to visit a meat packing plant: standard procedures stop, workers are told to slow down, look happy and lie like a cheap rug about conditions, or face termination. The reporter is clueless. Amazon is just one example of why we need strong union representation in the service industry. Jeff Bezos treats his workers like slaves and steals the profits they make for the company. He should be in jail.

Worked there for a year. Wasnt too bad. Got a couple write ups work is chaotic as hell during peak season but for the most part if the job offered security the benefits were actually pretty good

I got hired and start next week Wednesday at a new warehouse location. I’m excited but nervous at the same time 🙈
Fiesty Ok (10 days ago)
You do the drug test the day you go into your hire event (mouth Swab). dress code is relaxed, I wear workout type stuff as most people do because you will see that it comes in handy. All the walking around and moving you do (especially if youre going to be unloading trucks) you’ll get hot and sweaty. You can wear hats. As far as shoes, they tell you that you can wear whatever type just as long as it’s closed toes.
Ben J (10 days ago)
Did they drug test you? was it a mouth swab or urine test? What is the dress code? can you wear hats? (I hate fixing hair in morning lol).
Fiesty Ok (11 days ago)
You should Apply tho. Just be mindful when you’re picking a location because not every warehouse does the same thing. Some are fullfillment, delivery (like my location) etc etc and once you find a location you can find videos on outline pertaining to that type of warehouse and see if you would like it
Fiesty Ok (11 days ago)
It’s amazing. It’s a new location and everyone that started that day was new which made learning super fun. Warehouse I’m at is delivery warehouse, which means the packages we get is the last stop for them and we have sort it out and stage it for delivery. So far I’m loving it. Managers and most of the people are super cool and fun to work with which means time go by fast, especially in the early A.M. which is my shift
Ben J (11 days ago)
How did it go? I'm looking to possibly apply but I'm hesitant.

I use to work at Urban Outfitters for 2 1/2 years and it sucked. The warehouse work was just like this, but the management was terrible, they overworked and underpaid their workers. Plus the management at Urban Outfitters officially told me and my coworkers that they were on a mission to compete with Amazon and beat them at their own game. Good luck trying to beat a Billionaire franchise Urban Outfitters

Thanks again guys. Even get deliveries on Sunday's. And Jeff Bezos is a millionaire now but he just began by getting a loan and selling books. That's when we began ordering from them. Now I buy a lot because many local stores don't stock the items we buy.
Rosemarie Kury (2 months ago)
I love Anazon too. Great customer service you guys! But not everyone is probably suited for these jobs. Know I couldn't be on my feet all day or be quick enough. And give the girl a break as she's just a reporter. Sure that she was protected a bit doing her story.

Unless you have prime Amazon will hold your package for 2 weeks before shipping it. And they work the hell out of their workers with poor pay while they are one of the profitest company in the word. Buy at stores. Support businesses, the small ones.

Temperary associates, in other words. Let them go after 3 months. Hmmm. Doesn't sound so great a job to anyone that needs stability in a job market that keep most of its workers temps, part time and no benefits. Good enough reason to boycott Amazon. Buy local my friend, keep your community flourishing without these Corporate Giants. I'm buying local and I've actually save more $$$MONEY!! And I know the people I'm buying from.

:) 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 "

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.

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).
