There is no reaching the goals. It's like a carrot on a stick. Just remember. Work hard, work harder, or you are history. Pick on.

Its pretty simple really...

Different departments put a twist on it depending on their needs, but the basic formula is:

(Units/Hours)/ Goal = Percent to Goal

Vague Example:

1000 Units divided by 10 hours = 100 UPH

100 UPH divided by a goal of 120 = 83 Percent

In another words, 100 UPH would be 83 Percent of the way to a goal of 120.
wheee

Kiss Azz.If you ain't a azz kisser your life at Amazon will be hel*.
Sometimes its the easiest way.And then you bet them at their own game.
I like to kiss up party with them find out their secret then I own them.
When they get a little bit drugs or few beers in their system then you know all you need to know on how to bet the system .If you a woman and you have a man for a boss ..you know what to do.
If your a man and have a man for a boss buy him a beers and find him a woman.
The funny part his they seek me out to party with and all I want from them is the secrets.I don't tell the secret I just use them to my advantage.
I like being on the inside looking out.
They not supposed to party with peons but I always party with with the higher ups and it works for me.
Most people at work don't know.They just know I don't have to do shi* at work.They think I am fast I just know how to work the system thats to my drunk azz boss
So just learn to kiss azz real good until you get control of them.Then they are helpless

As long as you are at least 80-85%, you should be ok. If you are struggling, talk with PA or AM and Trainer to work with you. I often will work with the person to help them.

You all are not suppose to be posting on topix...HR does monitor topix on a daily basis. I would be more afraid of losing your job over posting rather than rates!

We are not telling any company secrets.....Wait if you party with the manager you know all the secrets.
But again it just like any other job same thing goes on every place I ever worked.
It is what it is

You don't have to know the PA's to get the secrets. Believe me.

Freedom of speech.

But tell that to HR...They keep an eye on what is being said on Topix. I think everyone should be able to vent somewhere about the frustration of the job when it is needed. We all know that HR and upper management doesn't care what we have to say or complain about.

Well, well...what's HR doing getting on topix? Pardon if I'm wrong, but don't they and management have an actual job to do? What happened to freedom of speech? I'm not one to gripe about the place, but there are things that could be improved. Just saying...

Amazon is a joke. Management there is the most unqualified bunch of managers I have ever seen or heard of, starting with that stuck up GM that won't even speak to anyone and I would love to tell him to his face if ever given the right opportunity.

Cancer, when you get something to pick that is multiple items just pick them seperately. Example: It says to pick 4 things of Douche. You pick them one at a time and it will help your numbers. I heard people say that they did this for a half hour once and picked only 200 items and first break they ended up with a 100 percent UPH. So give that a try it helps out, but you got to keep consistent with your picking or your numbers drop by a huge amount and the managers wonder.

So give that a try and I assure you it will help your numbers. And if anyone says its wrong or cheating, just know that we do it anyways when we have to pick items to seperate totes anyhow. So its not like we don't do it already, they just suggest not doing it because it slows down your time on task which they don't even count anymore anyway. Give it a run...

And if HR doesn't have anything better to do then be on Topix instead of running a major company then there the ones who need to be fired and replaced! Happy picking!
