Job offer

by Bill - 2015-09-18 - in life/money/employment

Got the below email today. Probably because they saw that I have several books on Amazon (here, here and here), they read them, thought they sucked, and decided it would be best if I took a warehouse job. I must say, though, I've never seen a sweat-shop (a.k.a. warehouse) job look so good.

"Dear Bill, I found your resume online and believe you could make you [sic] an excellent fit for a part-time Warehouse position in our Nashville facility. Since this is a startup operation [ed. note: "Startup?" It's freaking Amazon, not exactly a "startup" anymore], we're looking for people who are comfortable working in a fast-paced warehouse environment as well as engaging with customers, and we think you have what it takes.

What would you'll [sic] be doing: Successful team members will understand that they play a pivotal role in making customers happy [How happy, exactly?] and we need people who are flexible to do whatever they can ["Whatever they can" is a scary job requirement] to meet customer expectations. An average hour in an average day includes picking inventory, packing it, sorting it, and interacting with customers."

Which all reminds me of this: Walk 11 miles a shift and pick up an order every 33 seconds... how Amazon works staff 'to the bone'
