I hate working for Amazon!!! Being a wage slave for amazon is pure hell!!!!.... We need the zeitgeist movement!!! I can't stand amazon!!! Free the people!!!

I believe you and I don't deny you had or still have a hard time making a living, but that's what the minimum wage is and should be: just to survive. If it makes you feel any better, it's not just Amazon that profits from your cheap hard work, but over 100 million of your fellow men and women and even children. In fact, I think amazon reported several billion losses on the logistics side of business, which includes fulfillment. I checked. They lost 7.2 billions on shipping in 2016. Getting minimum wage is the result of a combination of: Lack of effort in self improvement / lack of education / lack of effort / lack of of opportunities / bad circumstances that are beyond one's control / other people's greed (and the ratio of these varies quite a lot) I think the more you work on the things you can control yourself, you give yourself a chance to compensate the things which are out of your control. It's not always achievable and it's sometimes impossible, but it is always HARD.

This is what Amazon use to look like in the past. Go to YouTube to see the new fulfillment center in Tracy, CA to see the use of Kiva robots to reduce that large inventory in the back to a mobile inventory.

+Michael Ammann The Kiva system is insane. I work at the MKE1 FC, and I couldn't imagine working at one of the "manual" FC"s.

Prime member and proud, Amazon always deliver on time prime or not. They will have your item shipped the following day unlike ebay sellers who got your money but ships it 1 week later.

Its really annoying that Amazon doesn't deliver things like Aftershave  to Ireland. ooo it makes me angrey
BroccoliQueefed (2 months ago)
@Chris , You don't need aftershave. Try lotion and witch hazel
Chris (3 years ago)
+Wilbert Fisher anyway it looks like a bit of a scam. they are asking for too much info
Chris (3 years ago)
+Wilbert Fisher  I have just had a look at it doesnt say that it will send me items like deodorant or aftershave [well i suppose any liquid]  through the post. They are just gift cards. thanks but i just pay by credit card.

Amazon is a slave wage creator.  Buying local from small family business that live in the community is the best thing for the United States.  These mega corporations controlled by millionaires and billionaires are our enemies!

5 years ago to me they mainly sold books and some electronics, it's amazing how big Amazon has become! I sold a book on Amazon 3 years ago and the process was simple, 3 years later I logged in to my seller account to sell more books, I get lost at so many options and links....

+Jimmy Ellis I thought warehouse jobs work alot of hours.

I suspect that some of the comments are from Amazon employees who are told to say nice things on YouTube? "It's all so wonderfull" and "I would love to work there" And I'll bet that none of them work full time on the floor running around all night having to meet targets or get the sack in no time at all. I smell a rat.
Johnny Brown (1 year ago)
+Colin D There are most certainly part time positions, at least now.
Colin Davis (4 years ago)
they are worked to the limit you have a quota you have to meet which is almost impossible and if you don't meet that you're out the door yes it is a nice place to work and everyone that works there IS full time there is not part time ive seen people get hurt by trying to do things too quickly....as you might be able to tell I work in a fulfillment center

I have always been a HUGE fan of Amazon and use their Prime service. I order several things a month and enjoy the online video streaming. Just from the ideas in my mind about what these buildings would look like and actually seeing one is absolutely amazing! I would LOVE to work for one of these places to work the magic of making those items appearing at someone's doorstep 2 days later. Just AWESOME! Sorry if I am geeky... Just too cool. :D
