Fast paced warehouse environment
Packer (Former Employee) – Amazon Warehouse – December 25, 2013
The environment and the work is not too difficult but the management is terrible. They use scare tactics to produce rate instead of giving their employees adequate training. I was given a verbal warning and a written warning for the exact same incident, within 24 hours of each other. When I asked about the grace period for improvement and training I was told that because of peak season there was no learning curve and "either you know it or you don't." They overstaff and then have the employees practically fighting and searching for a work station so that they won't be made to do busy work all day.
