They really need to improve communication.
Especially between HR employees, regarding issues associates are having, as well as between AMCARE and the Accommodations team, along with the leave team. Attitudes of HR employees should not be "well, nothing is guaranteed" when an associate inquires about hardship transfers. HR attitudes cause good productive associates to want to quit.
If I had an employee regularly cranking out 150% productivity or better, I'd do what I could to help that person in their time of need. For all their talk of safety and the value of the employee, the employees are still, in actuality, clearly still just a replaceable commodity.

Communication is a big one... Making sure that people have their rate at a good number before putting to train in other areas.. Encourge your employees too move forward in their corresponding department.. And dont play favorites ROATATING people and know what each of your employees are trained in would be nice too.

Stop picking favorites, don't be so strict on productivity, I do understand their has to be a # but let's not make it so high. And being rude to your employees will get you no where except a huge turnover rate

Pay your employees more. We only work 4 hour shifts. So, why not pay your employees more? Especially, when a massive multibillion dollar company like Amazon can afford to do so. $13.25 / hr is not a livable wage in the Bay Area, California.
