As a worker, I don't understand why we ever stop working, I wish I could take 15 hour shifts and not get paid any over time
@Sivls, honestly, they give us too many benefits too.
@Sivls, I work with a guy who's always complaining that he doesnt get enough hours but he throws a fit whenever my boss asks him to stay later or come in on his day off
Someone add the South Park version of Jeff Bezos in at the bottom and repost this
Amazon basically works you like a robot, and are stupidly uptight with breaks. As a former Amazon employee, would not recommend unless you're REEEAAALLLLY in need of that $15/hr
@Anonymous Jack III, did you ever have to do fire drills only during your break? We did. It sucks
@Anonymous Jack III, Even though its pays $15/hr which is higher than minimum wage it doesn't change the fact that other warehouses start at higher wages $18-$22/hr, and they treat you like trash.
@The M Hive, yeah maybe as a foreman, or REALLY good at driving a forklift. UPS and FexEx package handlers start at under 11.
@Anonymous Jack III, Do you think it would be fair to cut the wages to say $10-$12 an hour and allow longer breaks, lighten the workload and have a more relaxed environment. Or do you think that should be a apart of a $15/hour wage? I do manual labor all day for $13/hour. I don't understand the hatred for a company that pays twice the national minimum wage.
But at the other end Amazon has the best Customer service and return policies, I just wish they accepted PayPal..
Blink twice if you're in trouble
@SimonPetrikov, *blinks Morse code for torture*
How come when Amazon makes employees do this everyone see s it for the bull it is. But when Trump does it. All praise his lordship.
You can’t take a picture. You can’t bring any electronics into the warehouse. Not like you would have time to take a picture. 15 minute breaks are 15 minute breaks. Doesn’t matter if you work on the other side of the mile long warehouse.
@Dirtyshizno13, I'm sure they went over this in the hiring process didn't they
Unions are worthless if they arnt strong. If they arnt willing to nut up and strike theyre basically useless.
Sounds like in Brave New World when the Deltas convince themselves they don’t want a better life like those annoying Betas or Alphas have.
They missed the best one - where Rafael talks about being a grandmother and showing her grandkids around, or something like that.
@Nellybert , And every picture he shares of “me and so and so” is of completely different people, and definitely not him in the profile pic.
@Berntley, I think Amazon ‘explained’ it by saying that the accounts are rotated between people and those were old tweets by a different person.
Not at all suspicious.
@Nellybert , not even in the slightest
@Nellybert , I mean, I didn’t think you could even change your @ name.
@Berntley, Good thing all these multinationals are so trustworthy and honest, so we don’t worry about that.
@Berntley, Yeah, from Account Settings - and the display name is done from your Profile.
