    I worked at an Amazon warehouse during the winter and they had an issue with people peeing in those yellow pick buckets. I will not work for any company that gives you shit for taking a few minutes to use the damn bathroom.

    When I worked there I just took my bathroom breaks, but they would definitely chew you out and if the walk to and back plus bathroom time was over 10 minutes. Sometimes you end up kind of far from a bathroom, so you have to plan accordingly.

    Worked there. I went to the bathroom, took a quick pee, refilled my bottle of water, and on my way back to my station, a female worker with the admin vest on says to someone as I pass “hey can you check the bathroom for me? An employee is missing and we last saw them walk toward the bathroom.”

    It was me, I kinda kept walking as if I knew what I was doing.

    That was my favorite week there. That was also my only week there because they didn’t accommodate my school schedule so I had to quit.

    6/10 would order from Amazon and package my own package again.

    (Also you wouldn’t believe how many mein kampf books I had to stow)

    I worked in HR at one of the Amazon facilities and the break times were so short it was ridiculous. It took 10-15 minutes to walk from one corner of the building to the other. There weren’t enough scanners set up for people to scan out to use the bathrooms. So many crazy strict rules. I was low level HR at the time though and didn’t have much of a voice.

    If they won’t treat workers as human, then is being replaced by a robot really all that bad?

    “Someone” didn’t think about it because they were replaced by an algorithm while on their bathroom break a few years ago.

    The funny thing is that mid-level managers will be fired for this…and the ones responsible for the unrealistic goals will be just fine.

    And the horrible work environment will continue.

    Someone should create a book called ” why Amazon workers should unionize” and keep buying and returning it on amazon until enough workers see it.

    My cousin was working for Amazon when he was diagnosed with Leukemia. Amazon paid for all of the treatment. He is now cancer-free and went on to become a supervisor. I will always support Amazon despite incendiary headlines because of how they treated my family, their employee.

    Worked at a new warehouse and restrooms were a good 15min walk through the warehouse because of the walkways they made and basically if you didn’t go on break good luck going any time before or after. I didn’t care and wasn’t going to be denied a basic human function at work so I ignored their warning about going. Made it a point to go right before or after break eventually they added a restroom close to were I worked. Still quit that job because they were constantly on me about numbers.

    I’m working there now as a stower for 6 months. The problem is the rate. It’s based how many items you put away in an hour, for stowers it’s around 290 items per hour. (Bigger items are worth more items therefore need put away less bigger items to get the same rate). So after 10 hours they tell you your average rate for the whole day. It expected to be 100% or more. Then after a week they tell you the weekly average. If the weekly average is below 100% they give you a warning, 5 warnings and you’re fired. Even if it’s 99%. So if you get 90% on one day and 100% on the others (four days in total) your avg would be 97%, boom strike one. So to compensate you have to work extra hard on the other days even though the job is damn hard already.
    A lot of people get fired after just three weeks because they can’t hack it others quit because it’s damn tough. I don’t know why I’m still doing it, I should’ve quit after 3 months, but I kinda find the competition and toughness kinda enjoyable.

    Anyway So if you go to the toilet for how long you want the manager won’t say anything, but at the end of the day your average rate for the day would be decreased. And in chain your weekly rate.

    For me peeing isn’t really a problem since it only takes around 5 mins to go and come back. Easy the make back the time. The problem for me is #2. For me it takes at least 20- 30mins. Which kinda drastically lowers the rate for the day ( by around -15%). I have to either do it during lunch break, which means no lunch or during work, risk of warning. Gets kinda tough.

    Each Amazon facility is different. I work at Amazon in Florida and we can use the restroom at any point in time and the restroom is never more than 2-3 mins away from any location in the facility. We get two 15 minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch. Time between breaks is 2 hours each.

    *Nobody* thought about this ad placement. Ad placements don’t involve bodies or thinking any more. The industry (or at minimum “market forces”) seems to have decided this is a net-positive, but I don’t buy it.

    It’s interesting that people seem to think humans are involved with matching ads to articles. These things [are automated](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_exchange). It’s the same reason why e.g. Facebook tracking is so pervasive: there’s nobody sitting at a desk at Facebook writing what you do in a notebook; it’s just that every single time your web browser contacts Facebook (when visiting their website, when sending a chat message, when opening a page that has “Like” buttons, etc.), they store that information.

    Stuff like this makes me thankful I have a more laid back job. I can go to the bathroom whenever I damn well please. And that’s a good thing since if I drink water or coffee I end up having to go like every 5 minutes.

    There really needs to be better human rights workplace laws though, it seems the less money you make the more you are treated like shit. The issue too is if you are not unionized they can do pretty much whatever the hell they want. They could force you to clean toilets with your mouth if they really wanted to. If you refuse you’re fired and there are 20,000 people lining up for your job.

    Worked for Amazon for two years never caught any issues from management for pooping when I needed to poop. The bathrooms were right behind their desks so if they’d call me on the radio I’d tell at them from inside the bathroom. Fun times.

    HR ruled with an iron fist as the center I worked at though. Even upper management were afraid to overstep their bounds, because HR held them to a higher standard and absolutely would come down and snatch them up if they harassed employees over bathroom usage.

    My first week there my original Area Manager got walked out for yelling at a girl and telling her she was lazy and the worst worker on the dock (she was). She worked up some tears and went off to one of the HR kiosks and they came down and fired him on the spot.

    I hear the same for a competitors warehouse that I work at from other people. If you work, they don’t sweat a shit that took long one day. It’s the people that don’t do shit that complain they can’t pee or poo or not enough breaks. My old boss SAM doesn’t bother me at all for multiple smoke breaks, poo breaks, pee, BSing with others because I always get my job done!

    I imagine this probably depends on your location, because a good friend of mine works for their distribution center in Richmond, VA and loves it. Says he gets great benefits and lots of bonus pay for simply coming to work regularly. To be fair, this IS just based on what he’s told me, but I fail to see why he’d like or misinform me.

    Having worked at the same Amazon fulfillment center two separate times (each spanning about a fucking WEEK), I can say from experience, you’ve got to have a special appreciation for monotony to work there. It’s definitely as close as you’ll get to voluntary Hell-level torture on Earth.

    The pay is fucking *wicked*, though.

    I don’t buy anything Bezos. No Amazon, no WaPo, nothing else he owns. The man is a scumbag, as anyone who would do this to his employees doesn’t deserve to have people working for him, and consumers should buy from people who don’t treat their workers like slaves.

    Out of curiosity, is Amazon really a bad employer? I have been approached by Amazon headhunter a few times. Always responded no, as I am not looking for a change at the moment, but it will be good to know the situation of working in there. Headquarters, not warehouse though….
