I’m this time I have missed worked because I haven’t been feeling well or people in my family haven’t and family comes first
But with amazon it seem like they don’t care
We done had so many cases of the covid - 19 there it’s scary and you don’t know who has it
They make us work longer than the shift we picked and we are worked like dogs
They don't care about their employees. Literally anybody can move up to management, and that includes people who take advantage of the tiniest amount of power given to them and they treat everyone below them as inferior. Coworkers typically act like they're still in high school and refuse to help others when they're struggling or getting backed up. According to the people I work with, I look like somebody that can be pushed around and yelled at, so with the social distancing people will walk up to me, be near me, and then I'll be yelled at even though I wasn't the one who did the approaching. And then the person who did won't be yelled at at all. Who on earth looks like someone that could be yelled at over nothing? That's pretty toxic thinking to me. It's not worth hanging around for if you aren't in desperate need of money that isn't minimum wage.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Amazon.com a better place to work?
Take care of current employees before hiring a large number of new employees. As a shopper at Whole Food Market, I am working minimal hours as new hires are guaranteed hours. We don't feel valued!
There's been a lot of discussion about the challenging work/life balance at Amazon. The CEO, Jeff Bezos, has even commented on it. From an inside perspective, how is the work/life balance at Amazon?
I worked as a Driver. I was there for a few months then left. 10 hour days and very physical work meant going home with extremely sore muscles, and difficulty sleeping due to anxiety & soreness. It was too much for me. Look...you can’t work for Amazon, unless you can physically handle the work and hours! If you are a parent, please think twice. It is physically exhausting! Your work/life balance will not be great, if you have a family, or are taking classes. I never called off sick, nor took a day off, and they liked that! Any employer does! This is the culture of any warehouse or Delivery Service. Extremely long hours and extremely physical work. Be fast! Do it right! Get it over with as fast as you can then go home. When you get home, you’ll spend the few hours you have trying to feel your legs again! If you need a job quick, with no other options, then Amazon is for you. So far, Amazon employees are still complaining of the same things. Saying anything here will not change that. All these complaints will persist for the rest of Amazon’s lifetime. But, it might help the person who is thinking of applying. Amazon will always replace you after you’re gone. Mr. Besos knows that, and he knows someone else will always need a job, quit, then go on here and “vent” about issues that will never be resolved. But, no matter how much is said here, someone will always take your place. For legality sake, this is a place that is for us former and current employees to go to, and share our feelings. It’s kind of like a therapy meeting. LOL! Amazon culture...Take it, or leave it. No matter what you decide, Amazon will live on with or without you. If you want a decent work/life balance, don’t work a job with a 10 hour shift. It will be difficult for you no matter what age you are, as well...
Give the opportunities to grow every time firts to the seniors; its the normal; dont give the new ones with one month responsabilties than they doesnt matter what to do and do it wrong.. ex. less than one month, white batch and the emp are "tdr"... crazy; the didnt have the compromoise with the comp to be responsable; new hire most be scanning until they are permanent.. make a group off senior empl oor permanent ones so the can give some suggestion on what they saw.... beleive that every empl are good at certain jobs.. evaluate that ...
I didn't do a drug test at my new hire event all I did was show supporting documents took a picture and I was told my start date and I already did my knet onboarding process along with the mydocs and my background check.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Amazon.com? What are the steps along the way?
Not long at all. Application done on line prior to arriving. Any information not completed there are Amazon Associates to assist. Drug screen (oral swab), results are determined there. Start dates are determined at the time of applying. Longest is 4 days max.
I was interviewed for an Analytics Manager role. The guy who is interviewing me is unfit to be an interviewer as he neither has the knowledge nor a suitable experience. It is crazy that Amazon's HR thinks that employees will welcome other "competent" members on their team. Insecure people will do everything to protect their positions, and eliminate competition in the process. If Amazon continues this path, it will become a Day 10 company (it is already a Day 3 company given the kind of people they have onboard)
