Horrible company to work for, treated like a slave.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 October 2016
Worked for Amazon at their Mississauga warehouse, Mill Creek avenue. SMX - Staff Management is their in house employment agency. Extremely rude and arrogant people from both SMX staff managemt and Amazon. No respect or manners or courtesy.
Its back breaking and knee breaking job. You basically work and are treated like a slave in there. They also assume you are a thief so they check you non stop with metal detectors every time you go i and out. You are shouted at and harassed at every opportunity.
Very high turnover, people come and go, so they are constantly in need of people. Unhappy and disgruntled workers everywhere. Close to 90 % are immigrants, most of them are New to the country, so its easy to exploit them. Very few White people work here. Ministry of labour needs to investigate this place. You will have a mental or physical breakdown if you work here more than a month.
Picking, Packing, Stocking, Shipping, Receiving doesn't matter where you work, its brutal. Your whole body will hurt and break down at the end of the day. The pay is NOT good either for the amount of slave work you do. Half an hour lunch break is actually only 20 mins, when you have to walk through the long warehouse and security detectors. You are monitored each and every second. Its like a JAIL in there. You will be USED left, right and centre at this place. You will lose your self respect and dignity after working here.
A mind numbing, soul crushing, physically and mentally hard job for a LOW pay. Shame on you AMAZON and SMX- Staff Management.
Low pay, Physically and Mentally hard, Brutal Management
