Nothing new indeed, just the same old status quo from the big giant corporations treatment of its workers.

With the buyout of Kiva Systems the robots will soon be the go getters.

A lot of people are starting to quit now. Especially the pickers. But I think that's the way Amazon wants it. because you can't pick at a high rate and not fall apart. I mean if you work anywhere other than picking you have it made. But once you're a picker they won't let you do anything else unless you are slow then they send you to pack or stow.
very true

I agree. I work in stow and I see how the pickers have it so hard. They are the saddest, most tired, poor looking things I've saw. So many of them get hurt. Amazon needs to start moving them around instead of running them to death like a dead horse.

If murfreesboro thinks picking is rough,I would challenge anyone in picking to work at a non-sort in packing.

The online application is not complicated & they don't make you scan your diploma. They request for you to bring your diploma to your interview. As far as the $13/hr starting out pay, that's only true if you are offered a Tier 3 position. Otherwise, they start out paying Tier 1 positions at $11/hr for day shift & 11.50/hr for night shift.

Just like they tried to say in the all hands a few months ago...They say we make a "median" of that much because they are including our monthly bonuses, stocks, etc. I don't think there are any tier 1's or tier 3's making that much, unless they have been with Amazon for several years!
nope

None of us have stock yet, only AM's, etc have stock. Very few of you guys make up that 1100 number that make a lowly 11 an hour. And the monthly bonuses of 20 to 40 bucks lol... math is not adding up. but watch out folks!!! that big .25cent raise is coming up!! That's why so many people are starting to quit and get better paying jobs elsewhere.

You must have recently started working at BNA3..all of the original BNA1 tier 1's are making at least $11.75/hr now. We will all have access to our stocks when our 2yr anniversary comes around.

Honey, you must have just been hired back in September/October or you got converted to full time over the summer through SMX. From my understanding, weekend shift folks do not make more $ hourly than any other shift. Wouldn't it be funny if we figured out who each other were at work? lol :) I refuse to let it be known on this website....

And night shift gets $.50 more per hour for the "shift differential" pay because NO ONE likes working nights. The people are way more laid back but of course the hours suck!

If anyone ever gets hurt here and needs to see a Doctor. Please do yourself a favor and pick Dr. Glynn, he seems to care. Don't pick Dr. Johnson because you will most likely see Chernowitz instead and, don't pick Dr. Hazelwood either. The internet is your friend about the last two doctors.
well

Nights are laid back?!?! It's not worth the extra 50 cents to work nights. Days don't do anything, and that extra 50 cents doesn't really make up that much of a difference. I did nights for a while in pick and then switched to days, it's like a whole different company! I love working there now
