I been hearing rumors that AMZ going to change the way we use personal time and points.
What have you heard?
Thanks to a lot of associate working the system we will have to pay for their abuse.
Why can't they just get rid of them if they don't want to work or let them go part time.
It look like AMZ is trying everything to get rid of associates.
The new drug test,writing everyone up for numbers(Managers don't drop the work so we can't get the numbers)they doing that on purpose. and now personal time and point changes.
Why don't they write the ones up that stand around and talk all time ..instead of the managers changes their hrs so they meet the goal.
If they want to get rid of the lazy ppl they should fix the system so the manager can't move hours around for their favorites then they could get rid of the lazy suck ups.
They change our numbers to suit their needs not what we actually do.I say lock them out and see how their favorites numbers go.
How do I know I heard them discuss cahnges it so they look good at the end of the shift.
The ppl they cahnge don't have since enough to keep their mouth shut they will tell you my manager said he dilute my numbers.

For me as, far as the personal time goes, I say if they give it to us to use, then they shouldn't fuss about when we decide to use it. If they don't want us to use it, then do away with it and stop conplaining about it when we want to use it on Friday's.

I heard that because everyone leaves early on friday that they are going to change some shifts. B-shifts schedule will be wed-sat. and part time people will have to work thursday-sat. Premiums are not getting out because everyone decides to leave early on fridays, the last work day. Maybe if people wouldn't leave every friday this would not happen

Crisplant has a P.A.that does that for his favorites,otherwise they'd never get their ###s by talking all the time.Cris plant does'nt have enough work coming down so everyone can get their rates,its not fair how its set up.Its every man for himmself,the survival of the fitest.They holler watch out for your teammates yet they pit each of us against the other to see who can steal the most lights.Crisplant is full of stress and frazzled people trying to do their jobs and all the odds are stacked against them.The way the shooting system is set up now,if you're not agressive you have no lights.Some of the ones transferred to our dept. are selfish and hogs ,only out to get all the lights.Of course thats how Crisplant has designed it.There is no fun or peace anymore,everyone is stressedout about getting enough light to get their production.Someone is not going to get enough lights to get their ##s and fall in that low slot.Its set up unfairly and they just don't care,you better learn to be mean and be a bitch to get your ###s.But then you get talked to about being a bitch.Yet the beat goes on with their little set up.The older people don't have a chance the way the system is set up.But again this is their plan,weed out the weak and helpless who let people run over them to keep from causing a fuss.

You cannot reason with anyone pertaining to your job.They have no clue what we go through nor do they care.Amazon years ago was full of smiling happy faced people.Gradually the lack of appreciation for people doing a good job for them went totally unrecognized.People will come more close to doing more if they're left with the pat on the back.Having what you need to do your job certainly helps.Having to search for tape,labels,tape gun,a scanner that actually works,a cart that is'nt nasty dose'nt help our ##s either.Not to mention walking over to get orange card items [more time taken away from ##s.]Walking to find D4 boxes and C4 boxes.Its not a constant supply of anything we need to do our jobs.Moving our carts to allow tote people by several times a night also hurts our ##s.But you can rest assured the only thing looked at is our ##s.People are disheartened by the lack of concern for us as a person.Amazon can still be a business and care deeply for its employees at the same time.Where did that caring go ?That was such a big part of Amazon years ago.The saying is still true" YOU CAN DRAW MORE FLIES WITH SWEET HONEY ,THAN BITTER VINEGAR".PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY'RE MORE THAN A #.THE VALUE OF EACH EMPLOYEE SHOULD BE MADE KNOWN TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM BY THEIR SUPERIORS.

Parsley was asked directly if there would be shift changes at stand up, he said no. Take that however you want.

Parsley needs to come join all of us on the floor.Could he get his big fat fingers into those Jiffy Mailers he wants everyone to use?And could he get his big fat hands and fingers in those A-1 boxes?People are getting all kinds of problems in their hands and wrist because the A-1s are so tedious to handle.But Amazon is all about their customers,they really don't give a rats azz about those taking care of the customers needs.

you may want to see him do your job, but I sure don't want you to do his, I'm pretty damn sure his is much more stressful and demanding, not to mention you got to have a brain, which you don't evidently.

You have to have a brain to do all the multitasking that Crisplant has to do as well as the other Depts.,otherwise the customers would not get their orders .Its those who do not do our jobs that decide different ways to do them,without asking us if it will be a workable solution.We do the jobs everyday we know our jobs inside out.As far as you saying I have no brain ,that falls in your corner pea brain.You must be one of those who calls all the shots in the Depts.without first really knowing if those in that Dept.will see it as workable.A lot of ideals you come up with ------,if you want the ##########s and quality you yourself need to use your peabrain and ask those who do those jobs to see what they think.If we were just left to do our jobs ,and left alone ,we could get your #####s and quality.Why mess with something that is not broken????Perhaps your peabrain has nothing better to do.Also your nose must really be brown by now.

Sooooo, you are saying you are smart enough to be ops??? sounds like you're pretty darn stupid if you aren't out there making their money then. You would rather get on here and whine about how everyone else does their job. Sounds like you must work night shift, all they do is whine.

say what you want about me, I just don't care.

What pisses me off is you whiners always complaining about having a perfectly fine, good paying job. There is NOTHING there that is wrong enough to get on here and shout to the world that amazon is a bad job, especially these days.

You want to go over to Iraq and whine to the soldiers about how bad you got it???? No I didn't think so.

Stop you gripeing, and do your job and be happy you got one. Oh, and I have worked every dept, sorry, it just isn't brain surgery OR rocket science to do any floor work. Maybe hard for you, not so hard for some. Yeah it's frustrating sometimes, but what work isn't, that's why it's called a work.

Thank you very much.I have never liked the smell of azz well enough to kiss it .Thats a good reason I myself would'nt want an OPS job.For some reason they think once they've climbed the ladder to ops ,they really "THINK WITHIN THEIR OWNSELVES ----- THAT THEY'VE ARRIVED".A Peabrain cannot hold too much knowledge,it'll bloww up from all the pressure.I have degrees coming out my yahoo ,I'm still smart enough to know what works and what does'nt.Something that takes this guy a long time to figure out.Wise up ,the people doing the jobs know.

Your opinion is like an azzhole , everybody has one.Yours just smells a lot worse than others.You did not have to read my comments ,you don't like them,don't read them .Now is'nt that a simple solution????Did you small peabrain get that?Your wanker is as small as your brain.Last I heard you could'nt even salute.Maybe thats why you're so uptight,can't get any .

Too funny, I don't have a wanker at all. I don't kiss butt, I do my job and don't whine about it. Amazon saved me from desparation over 8 years ago, I never want to raise kids on less than 500 dollars a month again. I owe them an honest days work for the pay they give me, I pay them an extra kindness by refuting your whiney ass bullsshit, because that is what it is. You don't like your job? QUIT
