Making quotas

How hard has it been for you lately to meet quotas? Sometimes I wonder if our superiors have any common sense at all, and most of all I wonder if they would be able to make the quotas we need to keep the job? Are they realistic at all? Worst of all... —  read more 


57 year old employee (and company founder) was walked out after 27 years of dedicated service. Thrown out like an old loaf of bread. Hopefully, he got an appropriate severance package and career coaching so he can get a fresh start.

Absolute sweatshop

I would love for this company to be completely left without employees, given how it treats its employees. I don’t feel like I’m working, I feel like I’m being mercilessly squeezed by a machine. I don't know what your situation is, but in my case... —  read more 

Pray the acquisition is denied

If you work in media, pray that the MGM merger is denied. There would be huge consolidation layoffs as a result on both sides. I don't know who'd be hit worse, but the fact is that nobody would come out of it unscathed. I know it's still at least two... —  read more

Plan to raise wages

No one has yet commented on Amazon's plan to raise wages... As far as I'm concerned, everything they are doing is late because I left here a month ago for Costco, but I wonder what my former colleagues think about this plan? It is not clear to me... —  read more

COVID safe environment?

Do you think that filing a New York lawsuit against Amazon is pointless because Amazon did a good job when it comes to providing a safe environment in pandemic circumstances, or do you think Amazon failed at that and didn’t actually objectively... —  read more

Tips intended for drivers

Driver here. What Amazon did between 2016 and 2019 was a really shady practice. The news now appearing in the media that the company took away 62 million dollars in tips from us is nothing new, but it still piss me off. Excerpt from the article -... —  read more 

The worst place to work

The very worst place to work; under backstabbing, narcissistic, despotic managers who are supported wholeheartedly by craven HR Business Partners. I would not recommend this place to any but the most supplicant masochists who return home at night... —  read more 

Feeling miserable

Sorting again, endlessly stacking packages on palettes... another day older, with an even more painful spine... feeling stress but I try not to get noticed because they would replace me immediately... worried about how to pay the bills, more indebted... —  read more

Corporate culture

Interviewing for a corporate role but trying to get a handle on the culture. Would love to be in an upbeat growth company. Is that Amazon? My recent Tech experience is daily knife fights among team members when the company was making billions anyway... —  read more

Option to work from home

Unfortunately, I had to leave the company due to illness and now I saw the news that Amazon will allow some employees to work from home until mid-2021. Can someone give me more detailed information, which workers will be covered and will those who... —  read more

How is this possible?

Amazon is the second best employer in the world according to Forbes. Now, I understand that there are privileged employees at HQ who might call this a good place to work, but they are a minority! How can they call Amazon even a good employer, not to... —  read more 

Snowflake as competitor?

I think Snowflake filing for IPO could be one of the 2020 best headlines but this headline is a bit exaggerated. We can only wonder what 2021 will bring to us but neither Snowflake nor Amazon controls the market, so competition between different... —  read more
