3:08 "Fulfillment centers they call them because it's supposed to be fulfilling." Umm...no. They're called fulfillment centers because that's where they fulfill orders. It's not a new name that Amazon came up with to try to make the warehouse sound like a happy and satisfying place.

As someone who worked at Amazon for over a year, yeah... It is brutal working in a warehouse. And never agree to "light duty", despite the name, it requires crap like moving heavy ass stacks of unfolded boxes, or scraping line tape off the ground. It is harder than just packing the boxes or taping them. I do miss the pay... But I don't miss the work.

I worked at Amazon Fresh in SF, $17.25/ hour and plenty of overtime opportunities. I loved that job! It was so fun going to work every day and being active and joking with coworkers. I got fired for missing shifts/my stupid log in wasn't working on my phone so I couldn't properly cancel my shifts while on vacation. I am eagerly waiting to apply again after my 1 year probation. Idk about other warehouses but my was basically a party every day and so laid back. :)

If you keep buying from Amazon, you’re basically paying them to abuse the f*ck out people. They also have a high turnover rate and can’t keep their employees. I used to work there.

Here's an idea. Chop the whole warehouse into different units, each unit ideally being a max 30m×30m in area. Assign one worker to each unit. Connect each unit to a automatic track following trolley. The worker has to get each product to the trolley within 15s. The processing center will be placed at dead center of the warehouse, to ensure equal distance and time is taken for trolleys from each corner to reach the centre.

The primary reason its cheaper to order online is because prime real estate retail locations actually cost a shitload of money to upkeep, and warehouses are much cheaper than that. the worker abuse is just late stage capitalism at work.

walking long distance in warehouse was always a thing unfortunatelly. It can be mitigated by stuff like scooters. even the nonelectric ones mean you would use a lot less energy to move the same distance.

Just in case anybody is sitting here thinking this is an Amazon exclusive problem: I worked for UPS for about a month and my experience was about the same as those in this video. Routine chemical spills, constant overload, almost got fired 3 separate times for underperforming my quota by less than 2% on 3 of my first 8 days on the job. I was 18 and a multi sport varsity athlete and I had to quit the job because my body was quitting on me every day to the point I wasn't able to eat enough due to the amount I had to sleep. I lost 16 pounds in 3 weeks working there, these places are unbelievably stressful and difficult to work in, spare a thought for package handlers next time you order something that weighs 100+ pounds and demand next day delivery.

It's funny, with all the boycotts and cancellations everyone complains about, Amazon is really the one company that deserves it. And the weird thing is, they offer nothing worthy of exclusivity. I have avoided them for the last year since seeing this video. I get everything cheaper and faster by not using them. Their marketing team must be excellent, convincing a nation to spend too much for some reason.

The System is stupid, have people stay in the color zone and pick there part of the order an send to packing to collate/sort out. Also give each worker a pedometer and have forced brakes after X step's. Im sure in the long run the hole process will be automated from production to door, human hands free.

In australia working in warehousing transport and logistics is a brutal industry. Extreme conditions in summer and winter. Extreme dust and noise levels. Unrealistic work loads pushing humans body beyond fiscal capacity. Lack of empathy from management for fatigue. Companies in australia put fingerprint locks on the bathroom doors so you need to scan your finger to access the bathroom witch clocks you off so your not getting paid and back on when you exit. A power hour and one winner out of 150 people get a $10 voucher that was donated to the company. Constantly threating employees with your kpi's are down and their is a waiting list for your job is not ethical and is illegal. The entire situation constitutes modern slavery as in most cases this type of employment targets the uneducated majorities.

Many of these new warehouses are owned by state employee pension funds. They are very large, capital-intensive projects requiring tens or hundred of millions up front. Bloomberg did a story on a giant Amazon complex in rural Illinois that was owned by CALPERS, the California fund. So the rent goes to paying pensions, which is...?

If you do not like It than fond another job. If you are not qualified, educate yourself. It's never too late. You are a grown ass man, you can do it.

I was a picker for Bluestem Brands, parent company of Fingerhut, and we were treated really well, in fact the islamic employees got an extra break and a space for their prayers. We had little electric carts with trailers we drove around to pick. I worked 60 hours 6 days a week for the holiday season, yeah it was hard, yeah I wanted to give up, but that paycheck made it all worth it. Granted this was ten years ago so I don't know if it is still the same.

A lot of what they talk about on the workload is common in retail. Obviously most retail stores as not as large as warehouses, so the running distances may be less. But things like not being permitted to use bathroom when needed are common. Also, skipping lunch is a common demand. The last store where I worked had 1/2 hour lunch break, but the rule was that if you were with a customer when your scheduled time for lunch began, you were expected to stay with the customer and NOT gain the time back on the other end of your break. Your pay remained the same. In my case, the store where I worked had an upstairs warehouse above the sales floor, 28 steps up it and 28 steps back down while carrying merchandise. Not at all unusual to run said stairs 10 or more times in a day. I could only make tentative dates or appointments for any other after hours activities, as I might be too tired after work to go out. On Friday nights, when much of the world goes out, I knew I would be too tired, so never arranged anything for a Friday. Usually not for a Saturday, either, because although my normal schedule was M-F, I might be called in on Saturday. Basically, I used the weekends to recover and start the same thing again the next week. YES, for anyone planning to ask, I was there of my own free will. But it took me some time to learn just what abuses went on, and a lot more time to find another job while still working at that one- job market was VERY weak at the time, which is probably why owners figured they could abuse people. But I eventually did leave before it killed me.

Wouldn’t it be more efficient to have employees/contractors work in dedicated sections? Also, the companies that hire the lumpers make bank even if the people that do the work don’t. I’ve had to pay $400 for the lumpers to unload 6 pallets with no option to do it myself.

One other fun thing they use, the 1947 Portal to Portal act, which lets employers make employees wait 10...20....sometimes even 30 minutes to leave the facility after they clock out without getting paid just because that time waiting "isn't vital to their job operation". It ain't just amazon though, FedEx is also one of the worst culprits.

Amazon fulfillment centers are air conditioner. They also changed the warehouses from having the employees walk to the shelves moles and miles a day to having the shelves ride on robots to the staff. The pay and benefits are also amazing, they just expect you tk actually work at work. I work with 70 year old guys who love their job.

But, as long as there are other people to be found that get the job done right, I have to conclude that these so called witnesses are just not good enough for the job. Because if that were not the case, Amazon would have closed down years ago, since they can't find pickers that get it done.

Just started working at a fulfillment center 5 weeks ago. It's...yeah. Like it's not as bad as what I've seen in the vid and I guess that's because of this segment that kinda pushed Amazon to make better working conditions, but it is still tough as hell. I do not recommend working for Amazon long term, 15 an hour is great and all but it's.....it doesn't feel really worth it by the end of the week. My recommendation is that they hike the pay, remove mandatory overtime, and allow us to listen to music or something. 8 hours of picking things up and putting things down, walking miles across the same concrete floor, and only an hour break isn't easy or fun. Anyways, im greatful that Lastweektonight did this before I started working there, i believe that some of the criticisms made here improved working conditions by a little. :) If you DO decide to work at a fulfillment center, pick a gooooood pair of shoes that will support your feet. Walking on their floors for 8 hours plus can get painfull on your ankles and sometimes knees.

I know what that anti-union video was trying to say, but god damn, who wrote that? It opened with the phrase "we're not anti-union, but we're not neutral either." Did they not realize that the most logical interpretation of that is that it leaves them in the pro-union camp? Because if they're not anti, and not neutral, that leaves pro-union as the only option. I know it was just bullshit business speak for "we're anti-union but don't want to use that term," but fuck me, spend some of those billions on a better writer you anti-workers' rights assholes.
