YES! Amazon pushes the “seasonal” part time workers WELL BEYOND their limit. They are urged to meet their work quota by any means necessary. Not to mention the “work requirements” they show in the job opportunity page is totally fabricated. It should read, “you will be brought to the breaking point of high anxiety and physical, body shutdown.” They give 13 minute breaks and 28 minute lunches the shortened times are put in place so you get your ass out on the floor and push that shifts quota. And as for going to the bathroom, YOU ARE TIMED ON THAT TOO. No more than 3 minutes. The problem with that is, workers fear they will be written up. So they resort to urinating in bottles that are scattered all over the warehouse and urinating in garbage recepticals. Within the first week people quit due to near body shutdowns, and off the chart levels of stress to GET IT DONE. That’s just one of the reasons why 50,000 seasonal/part timers are hired. Don’t believe me, go check the former GOYA warehouse in Bethpage New York.

That’s awesome and they wonder why retail stores are going out of business. Why go to any other place when you can just point and click and boom it’s at your doorstep with a week. I love amazon, Netflix, amazon video, and Walmart.

If you buy a Kindle with 3G and want to send a book to it they charge alot. Little point of 3G unless you only buy books from Amazon. On Wifi its free of course, but tight arsed Amazon fuck you in the background with the 'free' 3G document to Kindle whispernet delivery option. Oh, CNN Fake News.

Amazon is the Worst company you'd ever work for !! If any one of you ever worked at Amazon, you'd be of the opinion of never to order a single thing from Amazon. If you guys only knew how many people leave during the first month of hire.... out of 60 new hires in picking, only 3 or 4 stay. Same goes for other departments in Amazon warehouse. And if you really cared about people and humanity in general, you'd never ever buy a single thing from Amazon. Because ''cheaping'' out on an item when buying from Amazon comes at the cost of unethical and unrealistic standards set by Amazon for their employees. They literally treat you as ''robots'' !!! Don't believe me ?? Check out working at Amazon on Youtube and you'll know it all. I am an Amazon Prime Member. I am currently working for Amazon as a new hire and I am currently in the 3rd week of employment. And I take a pledge Never to buy any single item from Amazon after witnessing workplace standards. Even Walmart is soo much better than Amazon in terms of taking care of employees and setting real workplace standards !!! P.S: I'm not spamming. I'm letting you all know of the reality !! Try it out by working at Amazon.

Amazon NEEDS to pay attention to Packing and Shipping. I am SICKENED at the way they waste cardboard and OUR TREES!! The size of boxes never match the size of the item purchased. Just check the ending of this video. Amazon should be A SHAME of themselves period!!! Save our Planet Amazon, is that too much to ask a conglomerate making big bucks!!

I work for Amazon and it’s HELL especially during peak season around Christmas time. That Amazon warehouse in the video ships smaller items so an associate there is expected to pack a lot more then we do. The one where i work we ship larger and heavier items. I hurt my shoulder packing 30lb bags of dog food throughout the shift and you’re prolly thinking 1 bag of dog food doesn’t hurt..well we don’t get to choose what we wanna pack. We’re expected to pack at a fast pace or it will hurt our rate. If we continue to pack below the rate we get written up and Amazon wastes no time writing you up they don’t wanna hear why you’re packing slow. After 3 write ups you’re fired. Majority of us want to pack smaller lightweight items but can’t. We’re lucky we get to pack at least one cage just to give us a break. They’re all about safety comes first but it’s pure bullshit. As long as the system has us working on a rate ppl are going to get hurt regardless

The one thing I don't understand why someone hasn't thought of but a stick and mortar store that does not have shelf space per se but it orders anything legal for the customer customer comes in so I want this the store finds it gets the money for it from the customer and orders it now they are responsible for making sure it's the right item IE not getting doll furniture in place of full-sized furniture but a place for people to go that do not do technology ordering well like me and I know there's a lot of others of us but something for those that do not want to do online shopping due to the problems it can create or have but before the product is ordered the store gets paid of course so they're not out any money plus they make a little money for the service just an idea
