After a month managers will start popping out if nowhere to just belittle you and tell you that you aren't picking hard enough. Or they'll just pop up with your written warning. They have divided the term "performance" into different parts so that way if they can't ding you in one way, they will screw you over another way. That way they can have the excuse to get rid of you and replace you with another worker so they won't have to pay as much taxes later.

GREAT work if you like it VERY fast paced and you're committed to being a dedicated worker. As for on-site training, it's nothing to brag about.

I do not like the way they hire you. The process is quick but to actually get a start date is the challenge, you have to continuously check for posted shifts and when shifts are posted they give you no warning or notice. Once you finally see the new shift that you want and click it the spots are all taken and you have to wait until they post more shifts. Waiting for them to post new shifts takes to long and I can no longer sit around and wait for that because I’m not making any money and I have responsibilities to take care of like bills and my child. The process is horrible it needs to be fixed.

Improve the point system. People and machines are two different things, it makes no since that they work you 40 to 50 hours a week 12 hour shifts. And expect you to be healthy , dont let it be Peak season. You can say good bye to your family and friends, because Amazon dose not care about any of that. All I'm saying is we all are human and have lives, there's no way you can work people into the ground and expect them not to become ill from lack of self care

I recently started working in part time in scanning and the biggest hurdle is getting my body to adapt to being on its feet all day after years of sitting at a desk. I look forward to working, I have made a few friends, but my feet are typically still sore from the day before, but with each day I’m a little less sore than the previous day. After my shift I look forward to putting my feet up.
