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.

No music. I think music would help improve everyone rate. Amazon doesn't know what the power of music can do to a person.

You will be worked like a robot. All the benefits and perks are there to hide the terrible work environment. Your pushed to achieve ridiculous production time and you need to accomplish it with 100% acurracy and speed otherwise you will be written up. Using emergency restroom breaks will count against you. You may have favortism and low QUality leaders. You workplace procedures are kept a secret. No job security. May i say more?

I agree with some former employees anger with Amazon management. I was there for 6months of my life. At my age & my worth I was shorting myself. Favoritism & buddy/buddy sys. hurts when lazy undeserving people progress & hard workers stay stagnated. It was an experience that reminded me that corporate America & street America are very close U would think by being in these fortune 500 companies that makes million$ of dollars annually the jealousy, envy & hate would be to a minimum. Anything but. Great job for kids or part time work but as your main source as it was mine you have to struggle & grab any OT available to make ends meet. If I had to grade it ftom top to bottom overall D+.

As a company that prides itself on diversity (hiring women, minorities, LGBT, and the disabled on these bases alone), Amazon hires anyone off the street and gives them a job, regardless of their experience or emotional well-being. Because of this you don't know who you're going to deal with.

Being someone from the inner-city I'm used to the drama and hustle of living in a rough neighborhood. So I make it a habit to carry myself with a little respect and inhibition. When I travel far from my abode I don't want to deal with the same loud, aggressive, and bombastic people I am used to being around.

And because upper-management consists of snobby college graduates and middle-class rubes who could care less about us "little people", there was no one I could go to to address the problems I had with fellow associates.

Aside from my mental health and a desire to work in peace, I'd find myself having to stand for 12 hours with minimal to no physical activity. So I opted for a position where I could keep myself active and motivated, only to have to wait another month and a half to finalize the process.

Tired of the drama, and tired of being held back with no prospect of moving up in the company, I left Amazon and I don't look back.
