Why did you leave your job at Amazon.com?

48 answers

  • Because the job isn’t worth the money. You’re massively overworked with unrealistic expectations around targets. Break times are shocking and you’re on your feet for 10 hours a day. People only work up if they’re pally with managers and there is zero job security. If I could have my time again I’d stay well clear and not contribute to a company who don’t value their staff.

  • I lost my job at Amazon due to a Amazon HR member of staff trying to exit through an entrance channel set up for covid.apparently Amazon HR staff are immune from covid and do not spread it so they don't have to adhere to their own rules.
    After informing the individual that this was an entrance and not an exit said individual took offence and began on his recently acquired power trip.

    Unfortunately at this point I told him that he should learn to read you f*****g nob head.

    After working for the next two hours I was removed from site and sacked for using foul language,being loud and threatening.

    I'm quite shocked that I wasn't sacked sooner when I requested bereavement leave and was told that I couldn't have time off after my father died of cancer, because my reaction was much harsher with more expletives.

  • Because animals get treated better.

    Oh, don’t you dare have time off, even if the job causes you to break your back, which it will.


    Good old HR and the ERC (Employee Resources Centre...snigger) will not pay you correctly or even at all according to you terms of employment (which aren’t worth jack s**t in that place). They will then ignore your emails or you’ll get some utterly inept, barely legible reply telling you they’ll sort it, but guess what? Never do!


    This place will f**k you up, you’ve been warned.

  • Worked in Dunfermline depot for 2 months felt like doing 10 years in prison was like slave camp management total idiots and over half of staff could not speak a word of English would stay well clear of this job

  • Because 8hrs feels like an eternity when your doing such a boring and repetitive job. My back hurts and my feet covered in blisters.

  • Still there there need new challage now

  • Because i couldn't work nights and the recruitment person did his best to force me off days to put in his mate instead,senior managers in knowsley weren't interested in anyones personal needs.

  • If you don't want to destroy your back forever, don't even think about taking a job in Amazon's warehouses.

  • I was laid off after four months I started in pick and then to outbound dock after that I was at customer returns I thought I’d be kept on I was disappointed obviously having had to make a 160 mile round trip to get to amazon each day

  • Very very disappointing disorganized manager told us a load of bull that it takes time for us to get the job done but thrown in at the deep end every day finishing late and also depot very very unprofessional
