What is the most stressful part about working at Amazon.com?

Read 127 answers

  • The box organizers you must Tetris packages in are level and are stacked from the floor to about head height, so there's often packages and loose jiffy envelopes falling out that you have to repeatedly reorganize just to try and stuff more packages in later. It's a bit stressful when the entire emphasis is on expediency and you'll get called out for being slow. It would also be hard to meet their expectations if you were short because the top organizer sometimes requires a stepladder, which takes more time.

  • Everything

  • The long hours of standing doing the same thing all day with two breaks that barely feel like a break cause the place is so big you spend most of the time getting to the destination you desire .

  • The noise and fast pace

  • The lies told to cover up the daily work experience

  • Highly physical work day.

  • Long stressful hours and some work stations are either too hot or not warm enough. Depending on manager could be Heaven or H€LL

  • Everything about the job is stressful.

  • Not having easy access to functioning working equipment that is mandatory to do our jobs, and the unreasonably high rates they expect you to attain to meet quota.

  • For me the most stressful part is TOT. You really have to be counting every minute that you are not on the floor scanning. You have to time your bathroom breaks and make sure you don't spend more than 5 minutes in there. If you go over 30 minutes of TOT for a 10 hour shift the managers will be on you, grilling you about what you were doing for the 2 minutes that you didn't scan because you needed to use the restroom.
