I signed a 9 month contract with Amazon. Things were looking good, I thought this may turn into a permanent position. Anyhow, I was let go about 5.5 months into it - there was no advanced notice, I was just cut. They released three contractors on the... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Amazon.com

Thoughts? Any Amazon.com Layoffs in 2019?
I am a former Sears employee. Back in late 2017 I was helped by a team of "quietly rebellious" HR execs & labor lawyers to keep my job until I was ready to leave. Hey, all sorts of dirty tricks were already being played to press folks like me out of... read more
I worked for amazon, for about 2 months. I was a packager, you had to meet a certain time and your numbers had to be good on the line. It was hot, no air movement and the line was constantly getting backed up or jammed. The managers tried to get us... read more

Hearing stories that AWS layoffs are next. Is it true?
