E-Commerce Company Treats Employees like Slaves

Location: California
Job: Overseer

I work for a certain e-commerce company that shall not be named, they specialize in selling everything online and have “fulfillment” centers where all of their products are stored and then sold to the general public. I had the “privilege” of assisting with the launch of one of their new facilities and I must say, the working conditions are sub par and overall logistics were bullshit considering how much this company makes.

For our employees’ first day at work, they showed up to work and were immediately greeted by ugly metal detectors (all employees have to pass through metal detectors because this company trusts no one). Afterwards, they got a crappy t-shirt and were assigned lockers in a bland locker space that resembles your locker in high school. Then the employees got cupcakes, but the cupcakes literally had flies on them. The real kicker is that there are flies everywhere in this new building and the flies have contaminated everything, including the break room. So when our employees go to eat, they have to eat in a fly infested break room.

Our management team tried to act like everything was a major success on this launch day, but it’s all bullshit. They look at the employees like they’re numbers and mere check marks on a vast and never ending checklist. I’m disappointed because everything negative I read about this e-commerce company is true. The managers are a bunch of arrogant and ignorant pricks straight out of college who get paid salaried wages to act like overseers on a plantation. Management lies to everyone and they all put up this glamorous facade, but the truth is this company runs their factories like a third world sweatshop so they can keep costs low. There’s a huge revolving door and burnout is ridiculous – I’ve come to the sad conclusion that all the people at the top are greedy and evil and the work I do serves the devil.

 

Nasty old staff

Location: England
Job: Care worker

I made a complaint about my lead and my boss showed it to the lead and told her who made the complaint. I come in and the entire staff team hate me and are giving me the cold shoulder. Now because I’m young and do my job correctly I’m hated. I hate it. I had a meeting today and I was told that I was wrong and the poor lead is so very upset – I’m the devil. Now to top it all off, I’ve been told by my main boss to WATCH MY BACK! Nice, ay? I’m finding a new job asap.

 

I was right around the corner

Location: Toronto
Job:

Hey bitches! Guess what! While you petty little girls were busy gossiping you didn’t see me walk back to my cubicle. And guess what? I HEARD EVERYTHING YOU SAID ABOUT ME! I’m an ass kisser? Really?! Is it because I know how to do my job properly and therefore get rewarded? Is it because unlike you lot, I don’t fail or let projects slip through the cracks? Just an FYI, I was the only one to get a performance bonus this year and I know for a fact you guys got NOTHING! And what else is wrong you say? Oh, I showed up to work too early the other day? I’m sorry I interrupted your dick off time! I forgot you start an hour before everybody else so you can eat breakfast, gossip, goof off or whatever else it is you do to kill time. The sad part is I’ve been trying to help you guys since the day I started. You obviously don’t need my help anymore. The sadder part? All you bitches are way older than me but you act like children!!

 

So sick and tired of nasty ass people

Location: smyrna,de
Job: cus tomer service

I swear if I have to take one more call and speak to some bitchy nasty woman (I am a woman myself) I will scream. So sick of people talking to me like I am a piece of dirt and having to take it. This stupid ass company does not allow us to talk back so we have to suck it up. I have started to hate people in general because of this stupid job. People want answers asap and have zero patience. They seem to have no clue that it may take a minute or so to look up the info they are looking for. Doesn’t help that our systems suck.

 

Fuck you

Location: USA
Job: teaching

Why are so many women in the workforce so passive aggressive and full of shit? I get that men can be total assholes, but you don’t do anything to stop or prevent them from being assholes. You gossip about each other and constantly drag each other down. Being the only male at an all female workplace fucking sucks!!
