What Is Life Like For an Amazon Worker?

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 2.30.05 PMYou dont actually get hired by Amazon. Almost everyone is employed by a staffing service. First though, you have to kill an hour and a half of your time filling out an application online and taking insane personality test. Im not sure why they have such a lengthy test Ive filled out a lot of applications lately and they run anywhere from 15-45 min not 1.5 hours! since A this isnt even a monkeys job, its a job your dog could probably grasp and B they seem to hire anyone who has a pulse.

Next you show up for your “interview” and possible on spot hire. Here you are herded around a series of stations, take some more test that prove that you are able to read or at least recognize the alphabet letters, sit and watch corporate video propaganda and wait on your “interview”. Mine was with a very nice young lady who essentially asked if I was a U.S. citizen and asked if I could meet the physical requirements. Theres none of that “what are your strengths” business.
