OMG was on tour at Amazon April 22 nd in Middletown De and was totally amazed to see this young lady with a fake leg and working the way she works it inspired me and amazed me. Realizing you don’t have to give up and you can do anything if you put your mind,heart and sole to it. Amazon you have my business thanks for helping the disabled and tell that beautiful young lady she inspired me. More people need to see her do working there. Greatly inspired.

When i worked for the company we threw away thousands of dollars in vendor returns. I understand throwing away expired food but we were throwing out up to date text books and cloths. Amazon does not have a charity that they will donate these items too. Ive see pallets of unused computer keyboards, usb phone chargers, toys, music instruments all thrown away and destroyed in the compressor because amazon will not give to charity or even to their own associates. When you order on the website we know all your information and a lot of orders get made fun of and put on display. Most people ive worked with will send out broken items because they get no down time to replace the broken item and you can be fired for not getting your rate. I was threatened to a fight by my manager and when i went tk hr they made me wait 2 weeks to weeks to have a sit down with someone to report the incident. When i told them on the spot what happened they said I HAVE TO WAIT untill the hr manager comes back from vacation. None of this is a lie. Working for Amazon was the most stressful time in my adult life. I know you can buy stuff cheap on the website but if everyone really knew what goes on behind closed doors and what Jeff Bezos and is practise of threatening small companys so he can buy them out is all about i would hope people would stop buying from Amazon. Last summer two amazon associates died in the warehouse in the same month. When we asked what happened they actually said they were idiots and they didn’t represent the company. And again none of this is a lie. Shame on you Amazon.

Former ebay associate:
your story tells me you had a bad working experience with Amazon and I’m sorry to read what you have written but so you know Amazon may not be right with everything they do but I can tell you I don’t believe Amazon to be half the corrupt corporation that ebay is. Ebay employees have died (inside and outside the work place) girls have been raped (by management). Security (an outside source) threatened to take me outside because of what I saw and heard. All to common preventable accidents in the work place is costing good people their jobs. The abuse and workers rights violations from management is so unbearable employees quit at a staggering rate. That’s the idea behind the abuse, to intimidate some employees to quit, maintain a high turn over rate so no one would be able to gather enough information or write about such horrible working conditions. To eBay’s surprise they wrongfully fired the wrong person (me). I was the perfect employee (not the only one) but had worked there long enough to gather enough information to write. The writing is ugly from start to finish and is true to the best of my knowledge. It was said “ebay would destroy themselves from within”…I’m the one to make this happen and I will…Watch Me.

ATTENTION. MR. DAVID FOSTER

Hello MR. FOSTER. My name is JASON GUZMAN, my best friend RUSSELL STEELE, advised ME to contact you as you are the reporter who he talked to about his issues with the STATE LOTTERY, and the contaminated tickets he had to handle after hurricane KATRINA. I’M contacting you to see if you’re interested in a story concerning AMAZON.COM, and their new FULFILLMENT CENTER in ROBBINSVILLE, NJ. IT most definitely concerns the TRENTON area, where I was born and bred, and just recently moved away from to live with my fiancee in LEVITTOWN, PA. That F.C. was opened just last year, and employs many TRENTON residents, which they even provide transportation to and from work. I in NO WAY, want to affect the employment opportunities of anyone, I simply have always been an individual that must speak out when something isn’t right, and people are being treated unfairly and taken advantage of due to lack of limited employment opportunities. I am reaching out to you only because during my employment with AMAZON.COM, I tried time and time again to resolve issues internally and not only did nothing change or improve, it continues to get worse, as I still communicate with some former co-workers that are still employed at the AMAZON.COM F.C. in ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. I voluntarily walked away from my position with AMAZON approx. a month ago, and they offered many options for me to stay ON BOARD, which is unheard of, being as MY EXPERIENCE in that industry was apparently very valuable to them, as I have been working in that field for the majority of my working career, and I am currently 40 yrs. young, lol. I would simply like consumers of AMAZON.COM to be informed as to what cost to AMAZON.COM associates, they receive their goods, same day, next day, 2nd day etc… etc…. ALSO, how that AMAZON F.C. makes it very clear to all associates that work there of the fact, that they only care about their products, productivity, and operations, and have no concern for the safety and health of the associates. Just a few topics that F.C. has already SWEPT UNDER THE RUG, lawsuit against their ridiculous SECURITY to leave the building, but NO SECURITY whatsoever to get in the building, a bomb threat, a gun threat by a disgruntled employeee, and the favoritism/nepotism that runs rampant at that F.C., reverse racism, prejudice, and unethical practices concerning EQUAL RIGHTS(favoritism for the female employess). I have already spoken with MY LAWYER, and until any agreement concerning this correspondence is reached, this information is to remain confidential.

Please if you know anyone else willing to report what they have experienced working for amazon please encourage them to write about it. The public is clueless to what this company does to people and the effects it was on thier well being. Thanks for your comment.

I wrote to headquarters regarding an issue with a product that I was being charged $18.50for when in fact that product, Gerber baby food (1- 2.5 oz jar) goes for an average of .99!!! They told me I was confused???? I am closing out my account!!!!!!! And this is after several phone calls and e-mails. Then they asked me to write a review, which I did, and they told me it was denied!!!!! I’ve been a member for 10+ years. No more!!!! I’m cancelling!!!!

Do you realize you are encouraging criminal activity by selling Kerri Rivera’s book? You are encouraging this quack to teach parents to give children with Autism, bleach enemas and swallow a bleach solution making many sick with some even dying. Just read some of your reviews on this horribly dangerous book with some really dangerous so called cures. Autism is not a disease, but a Neurodevelopmental Disorder which is associated with the brain. I see these bleach mixture is given to children with other issues too. I encourage you to stop selling this book that is advertised on CD Autism as well and start caring about those children whose parents are so gullible they are following the advice of this dangerous book.

I have been charged $99 2 times for some Prime Member shit!!!!!!! I have called them both times to get them removed!!! I have never signed up for the program and definitely never authorized anyone to take $99 from my bank account. I was told by an Amazon employee… the first time it happened that Amazon took it upon themselves to give me a 6 month trial……Then I was charge $99. I asked them how I could go about cancelling the membership(THAT I NEVER REQUESTED) and to please refund my money…..never did. So, I called back and they said it was refunded..that I needed to talk to my bank. The money was never refunded. Now it has happened again and the person I spoke to at Amazon this time….said that it is happening to a lot of people. Well….I intend to talk to my lawyer and have him look into what is going on…maybe we need to start a “Class Action Lawsuit” since this is happening to many other people!!!!

I have been a seller on Amazon for several years. Throughout the last couple years, I have had endless problems with seller support and seller perfomance. Every answer you get varies from one person to another. Their policies vary from one sller to the next ie; one seller can sell in a particular arena , yet another is discriminated against and products are pulled down or banned.
I as a seller have endless cases of responses and so called “policies” for every different person I talk to. And if sweller performance decides to pull down a product, forget an=bout it. They can’t be reached by phone, only email. When I expressed (appropriately) my distaste for their actions, they went though my inventory and pulled and banned more products, claiming that these products are not allowed for sale on Amazon, yet there are hundreds of sellers in this category with same types of products.

Now that I have been targeted, discriminated against, and have been subjected to harassment from the seller support team, I am now emailing Jeff Bezos in hopes that he can help. Its no wonder that he has lost 7.4 billion dollars this past year.
If Amazon makes approximately $5000 off me as one seller -and I am a small seller, per month, then in 12 months , they have lost $60,000 of income from one seller. Imagine if they do this to 20 small sellers a month, which I guarantee is a low figure, 20 x $5000 =$100,000 per month equaling over 1 million dollars a year because of the random and unscrupulous practices of their own employees. How about when they do it to much bigger sellers. I submit that this messed up system loses millions of dollars per year, or hundreds of millions of dollars per year, because their policies and actions vary, depending on who reviews that particular day.

Oh and I forgot to mention that cancelling a seller or pulling/banning products will cause DEVASTATING INCOME LOSSES to the seller!

My name is Don Harris. My associates and I have started a mfg plant that produces a grocery specialty item. At present we are capable of producing several 40 foot trailer loads per day with growing capability. This item can easily be sold nationally as well as globally. The product comes prepackaged and delivered on pallets.

I would like to meet with a company representative to discuss various options that Amazon has to offer and hopefully decide which avenue might be most beneficial to both Amazon and my client. We are located in the Charleston TN area.

Would someone please contact me concerning this matter? 865-250-**** or in****@aol.com

Amazon USE to be a pleasant experience for shopping and checkout, now, we are harassed with endless popup’s, “deals”, “hot deals” which block out what we are trying to do and navigate. Then when we try to “opt” out that too won’t allow us to actually shut down or shut off these annoying, intrusive marketing and ads that now make shopping at Amazon.com a real hassle, bombarded with all kinds of interruptions. Please get rid of these latest annoying unpleasant ads, suggestions , since we take the time to search on your website to eliminate and contain this intrusion and it simply doesn’t “curb” any of the pop-ups, spam, and Hot Deals that you seem to think will bring more folks back to your website ! This is really annoying now !! Check it out for yourself, and please forward this to your corporate administration and the CEO. Thank you for your time in this serious and annoying experience at Amazon.com Michael Timothy Gehret
