We get at least 1-2 people a week showing up to the Exxon refinery in joilet because they think it's the Amazon warehouse a couple miles north.........

They completely ignore the huge Exxon sign and huge refinery right behind it, wait at the gates expecting them to open, then they walk into security and say "I'm here for an Amazon interview. GPS says it's here."


One even asked "are you sure?" When we told them this isn't Amazon.

:rofl:

Pretty much the same thing, one makes more money. You have to test for it. Mechanical, some electrical, maybe a controls question or two. Basic associate IQ is pretty low...it’s mostly running around fixing super basic shit a HS student could fix. It’s a very easy tech job. You’re assigned PMs for the day every day, after you finish them you enter them into a computer

most of the day you’re clearing box jams or rescuing pit vehicles (batteries dead). Once a week or every other week you swap out a bearing or change a conveyor belt. Place is clean, air conditioned, tools provided

hardest thing to deal with is holding your composure when you want to lose your shit on some idiot

Depends on the manager, if you’re a rockstar and they need to fill a position it’s not an issue. 2 moths maybe.

I forgot to mention, you’re eligible for management in 2 years, with no degree. Our AM’s make 100, MM’s about 125-140k

Lol. No

seriously, it’s super remedial.

red tape and paperwork

Amazon does not fix stuff, they replace it

they don’t allow more than 12 hour days, more than 6 consecutive days of work, or over 60 hours in a week

only servos in anything is a box on demand machine. Our PM requires us to inspect and clean. It’s leased, if it has a real problem a tech from the manufacturer is called.

the safety is over the top. We have to wear a 40cal suit to close a knife switch.

you have to complete a form to use a screwdriver

I think a lot of the problem is people don’t like following all the dumb rules

i have a computer built into one of my service carts, permissible to print documentation or is it you need an office with trays of various forms bs?

i can follow rules, but is the system able to receive feedback to correct things/change procedures to reflect real world issues, not forseen by "the system".... and actually make changes/improvements, instead of lip service?

They give you a laptop, you don’t need anything. It’s essentially all electronic paperwork. You need BASIC hand tools that they provide. 9/16 or 1/2 wrench and a screwdriver is enough for 90% of what you do

ok, you need to understand it’s Groundhog Day here, things don’t really change. There’s like a 1/4 maybe of regular people that stay. And I mean at Amazon, not my company. Amazon is the customer, we do what they ask.

Every 6 months there is a new management staff. They come in andtry to change everything, which never happens, they move on to new buildings, new management comes in, and the cycle repeats.

they bring in hundreds of new employees to each location every year so basically every employee or manager has no idea what they are doing. the systems in place are rigid to deal with that.

Damnit.... I really need to see whats going on here.

Stupid question, but is it a place where you would be able to stay a long time and advance quite a bit if youre not a total fuckup?

Yes

Company has been good to me. You are eligible to go into management by year two with no degree.

you really got to fuck up to get booted or held back from opportunities.

The upside is huge growth, so there’s a lot of opportunity; the downside is all the growth and the pain that goes with it.
