Good reason to learn a skill and have an education.
Part time $12.25/hr Full time up to $13.25
Other positions pay more but I did not see particulars.
Amazon offers competitive packages including comprehensive health care,
401(k), restricted stock units, growth potential and a challenging and
exciting work environment.
At the job fair, Amazon officials will provide candidates with
information about the company and the application process. It will
explain what a day in the life of a fulfillment associate is like and
explain benefits, including the Career Choice program, where Amazon will
prepay or reimburse up to 95 percent of tuition for courses related to
in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to the
from what i have heard we might say they will enslave 800
the bit i read mentioned the centers were hot and the environment
is very high time pressure where mistakes are not allowed
because they cut deep into the bottom line
Mistakes are a fact of life. Any company that expects no mistakes is
not long for the business world. I worked for a company like that and
it wasted way too much productive time to insure minimal mistakes
instead of concentrating on what is ultimately the most important thing,
the customer. They went out of business.
A mistakes by workers do not affect the bottom line on a continuous
basis. Mistakes by management that is not recognized and corrected
affects the bottom line.
Mistakes happen, but you should be striving for 100%. We can't pass
judgement on this because we don't have facts, just a comment made by E
Are workers fired on their first mistake? Or are they fired after a few
and the worker does not care and is not trying. I've has plenty of them
over the years. Some don't make the day.
Certainly, but out of 200~300 orders over the coarse of a week, and
those orders having an average of 50 pieces, is a lot of picking and
shipping. We double checked each pulled order with two different
people, other than the puller, and if a mistake got shipped all three
were penalized monetarily. Inventory counts tended to be extremely
accurate and if a customer said they did not get a part we would check
the bin count against what the computer indicated. If the count was
right the puller and checkers were still penalized. Totally ridiculous.
Because we seldom made a mistake the customers were seldom upset as our
competition screwed up on every order.
If the worker is good but makes mistakes it is up to management to find
a solution, whether that would be putting the employee in another
position that better suits him or dismissing.
Can't speak for Amazon. but most picking in large warehouses is
automated and checking is a matter of scanning bar codes. A friend's
daughter works in a place where pickers wear a headset and it directs
them to the bins.
Right, but the comment was made that Amazon does not tolerate mistakes.
Simple statement with nothing to put it into proper context.
There are 17 glassdoor reviews for fulfillment associate at Amazon.
They complain about long hours, hard work, short breaks, lazy co-
workers, and no medical, but didn't see anything about any kind of
unusual handling of mistakes.
Those are typical complaints from 90% of workers at 99% of companies.
Amazon does state there is mandatory overtime. Staples warehouse and
probably many others do that when the company advertises a specific
Well, the third possibility there is that the job is set
up to make mistakes likely. In that case changing the
process is the solution - changing the worker just means
you have a new guy making mistakes.
There is a whole field of engineering, Industrial Engineering,
focused on how to set up processes to maximize efficiency and
minimize the opportunities for error.
that is watering it down a bit or maybe i did
the amazon centers are a not a typical warehouse operation
amazon daisy chains shipments often
you buy 5 prodcuts but they cannot be fulfilled from a single place
so your shipment might start at ct then go to mo then to pa then
finally to you
increase in complexity means they have to run a much tighter ship
or the bottom line gets hurt and at their volume that would hurt
technology helps but there is always a human factor
