Working for Amazon through Integrity Staffing was a difficult time of employment. I started off as a 3rd shift associate, the first day of work, there was already miscommunication between the staffing agency and management at the Amazon warehouse. We were told that if we met or production rates and did not receive any points for missing work or being late, we would have the opportunity to go permanent with Amazon, but this was a lie. Associates were laid off by the numbers just days after new years (when peak season ended). Peak started with over 200 people and there were maybe 5 when I quit. We were shifted from night shift to day shift with one night in between to transition which was really hard to accomplish. Our pay was cut as well as our hours from 40 hours to 20-30. And if enough associates would not volunteer to leave early, groups of employees were fired. Women do not have an equal opportunity for advancement, men are picked for leadership roles over women who are more experienced, and all men are trained in a department to advance before women. Breaks are 2 15 and 1 30. Your walk which can take you anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes is included in your break which means you really get 2 5 minute breaks and 1 30 minute. The most enjoyable part of the job were my coworkers because they made the night pass quicker as we were not allowed any music to drown out the sound of the machines like many warehouses I've worked at would. I'll never work through Integrity again.
