A Few Horrific Reasons Why Amazon Is The Worst Company Ever To Work For

Sometimes it’s easy to find negative aspects to your current work life, but if you read even one complaint from these ex-employees of Amazon, you’ll realize your situation is actually quite delightful by comparison. And Amazon is under fire because of it.

These complaints are almost so insanely awful, you might actually think they’re fake. One employee said “One time I didn’t sleep for four days straight.” Another said “You walk out of a conference room and you’ll see a grown man covering his face. Nearly every person I worked with, I saw cry at their desk.” But maybe the worst was probably the amount of hours that people were asked to handle during the week. “When you’re not able to give your absolute all, 80 hours a week, they see it as a major weakness.” Oh, not to mention how some aren’t even “allowed” to take a break.

This is why people jump out of office windows, folks.

The latest complaint however was one employee’s story about how he couldn’t even use the bathroom without being hassled. He goes on to say that while in the bathroom, sitting on the toilet, a man in a neighboring stall began to ask him why he hadn’t responded to his email. When the employee tried to grasp at the ridiculousness of what was happening, the man began to tap on the wall asking for him to respond. The employee apparently didn’t have a clue which email he was referring to and why in God’s name the discussion couldn’t wait until AFTER they were both finished. The man however persisted going over the situation and how it could be solved.

Both men exited their stalls which is when the guy hassling the employee realized he wasn’t even the employee he thought he was. He had mistaken his brown shoes for someone else’s. The worst part is the guy didn’t even apologize for bothering him.

It’s bad when you can’t find that five minutes of peace while sitting on a toilet. The employee had vowed never to use the bathroom on that floor ever again, and eventually left the company.

Long story short, if you see a job opening at Amazon, better off skipping it.
