This insightful Q&A, with an anonymous Amazon warehouse manager in California, is published by Vox and shows that being a boss of one of those facilities is possibly even harder than working on the floor. Tales of surveillance, rigid time-keeping and how the long hours destroy people’s enjoyment of the job are all true, it appears, as well as the company’s penchant for hiring army vets, and why… “In my opinion, Amazon is preying on the work-life balance issue that the military has, and feeds off the rigid order the army teaches. The military is known for being a bastion of sexism, but I had a worse experience at Amazon. It’s way more cutthroat.”
