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 (7 days 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 .

Why would they pay them more? Look at how these people work, they're slow as hell.
BlackWorldTraveler (9 months 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.

people should watch the bbc panorama episode of the truth behind working at amazon - this report makes it seem like a happy experience but the truth is far from that. i will never work there and i wish their american work practises of treating people like machines and not human beings would go away. i have not bought anything from amazon for the past 3 years nor do i have any intention to until they treat their workers better. fuck amazon. andfuck this biased report.

Does anyone who has worked there know if part time seasonal associates have the opportunity to get over time if they need or want and also are there benefits for them? What is the over time pay if regular start pay is 11.75??

+noe escobar don't let me or anyone else discourage you. it's all up to you. people told me the same thing, I had to figure it out myself and I found out how they really were. But work there if you want to. Some people like it, some people don't.

Nesha Britwood i have orientation tomorrow with all these reviews im having second thoughts
Sulfen (1 year ago)
+Nesha Britwood I've worked in a non-Amazon warehouse and they too gave me similar breaks like you're describing. My state doesn't require any breaks so it was nice that they gave a couple of paid breaks. It's shitty living in a Republican state with poor worker's rights.

I am actually REALLY excited that I have been hired at Amazon. I love the company to bits. I have been a prime member for a few years, and now I get to be on the other side. Sure, it is going to be hard work but they pay really well to start and I get to be a part of one of the biggest and fastest growing companies in America. I hope I can move up the ranks!

+schlaznger Democrats are trying to cut spending on boarding schools. Republicans cut spending on Public schools. Look at the secretary of education that Trump chose as an example.
schlaznger (1 year ago)
+Sulfen Gov Greg Abbott has actually pushed for positive spending on education while cutting well fare and frivolous lawsuit's with the bonuses going toward hiring new teachers for underprivileged and special need's school's. Texas democrats are the ones that have been pushing for cutting spending budgets on Texas schools.
Sulfen (1 year ago)
+schlaznger They keep lowering taxes without cutting their spending budget. They have cut a lot of funds to education. They are a good state but they try to cut taxes to win elections without paying attention to the consequences.

I worked at a brand new location over Christmas and it really isn't as bad as you guys make it sound. I worked 12 hour night shifts. Still got mandatory overtime and almost ran out of UPT. I was getting warnings about it and got my shit straight. The money was definitely worth it. And to get bonuses on top of that? Yum! Plus them giving away free shit like gaming consoles and 60" flat screen TV's was plain awesome. You guys quit a good paying job with a 401(k), health insurance, AND STOCKS just so you wouldn't have to give up lazy time on the weekends for a short period of time? The black out period and mandatory overtime was only temporary. You could have just gotten through it and reaped the benefits. You could have had a ton of extra money to spend on your weekends once the season was over. But hey, I don't know if you guys worked at a much older warehouse. If we didn't have climate control and the awesome tech in our warehouse, I might not have endured as much either. The location I worked at looks nothing like the place shown in this video. This place needs a serious update.
