To succeed at this rapid delivery, Amazon spends tens of billions of dollars every year and employs 250,000 workers in its U.S. warehouses. The process is an incredible challenge, and Amazon has faced criticism about working conditions at every step of the process. Watch the video to see what happens when you buy a Prime-eligible item on

    Amazon is HUGE! I’m honestly surprised there isn’t more people complaining about concerns at work. I work at a hospital and people complain 24/7 constantly about stuff but don’t have any media backlash because they are such a small entity compared to this company. My take on this video is that amazon has a lot of problems, though if you base that off successfully delivered packages by the millions worldwide it doesn’t really equivocate the concern that’s amplified in this video..

    Those disgruntled “employees” are private contractors. Just leave if amazon isn’t meeting your specific needs!

    Last time I heard... ALL employees choose to apply, work and stay with their employers [Amazon]. Don't like working there [Amazon], leave :-)

    Typical USPS... keep raising their prices due to diminishing business... eventually pricing out of market. USPS started really suffering many years ago when online bill pay started. A great thing Ive heard about amazon... consistently fulfilling promise while delivering the accurate item. PS- word of advice- Dont make negative comment about your job while being video taped - it’ll haunt you.

    the hard part is what to do with the box and airbag when you get your packages. I dislike the trash

    Why do people buy from Amazon knowing its gonna shut down all Wal-Mart's and basically all stores soon in the next 50 years?

    • 2214diva
      2214diva 2 days ago

      Because if a person needs or wants something and Wal-Mart doesn't carry it, but Amazon does. Of course, that person is going to buy that item from Amazon.

    • Oshe Shango

    If you are Amazon partner with many cars to deliver as fast as you can,one day for sure you Will have dangerous accident.maybe you end up in wheel chair. Not necessary ly to get something on one day.more important planning ahead what we need in buying from online bussiness.

    Amazon next day arrival is a disaster. I now actually try to avoid it whenever I can because in so many cases, the shipment will not make it the promised next day. Instead of replying on the fake promise to accomplish something, I rather plan on doing things with the more reliable 2 day regular prime.

    This is why I dont bother with Amazon anymore. It's easy to boycott Amazon because most thing I dont need from them. I boycott Walmart too because they also have slave labour, and I can get cheaper products from other stores. I mean, Walmart and Amazon is actually expensive compared to a lot of thing that you could get locally. Toronto, Canada

    Unfortunately, this video doesn't show even a tenth about working or being a subcontractor for Amazon. You are monitored 24/7 and if you don't make your quota you are done. In the summer the temps reach 100 degrees, I had a friend who lost 30 pounds in a month. Subcontractors who deliver the packages are at constant pressure to deliver and hence deaths have occurred. I refuse to buy from Amazon it is totally a scam, I don't care if I have to wait, don't want to be a part of a company that their only interest is creating massive revenues at the expense of their employees.

    This does not shows the root causes for 1 day delivery which is Amazon’s exclusively controlled inventories of its of items from the retailer.

    The way things are going, we may eventually have next hour delivery (especially with fast drones). That's freaky.
