Work at Amazon
Israel Luxing 
Tomorrow is first day working in amazon warehouse i am temporarily giving up my accounting career because office life makes me want to blow brains out, and nothing could possibly be worse. i have done hard manual labor and it does not even compare in misery. anyone ever work for our overlord and savior bezos? any tips?

yeh, i don't have high hopes or anything. being able to turn my brain off + not having high responsibility and dealing with stupid people will hopefully be major pluses though

Yeahhh the pay will be worse, not as much as you'd think though. It's enough to live off of + gives time to find an accounting job that isn't terrible

I do hard labour too and its still stressful af imo but I work in a factory so ye
2021-09-15 19:25
Honestly it all comes down to management. Do they demand a lot? Yeah. Do they pay relatively fairly for what they demand? At least in NA yeah. Don't work so hard you get hurt or overstressed. Amazon isn't a job you want to overwork yourself to keep, it should be a solid intermediate before you find an actual career you love!

Yeah I heard management can be make-or-break in Amazon (or anywhere, really). Thank you for the kind words =DDD Pay is good enough for decent apartment and living. As long as they don't kill me, it should be okay :DD

i started at a small local accounting firm. most recently worked for a small/mid-size company basically running the entire finances with no experience. city/county/state registrations across the country, taxes for all those locations, payroll, acc receivable and payable, job costing for like 50 projects, bank recs, etc. everything from the monthly water bills to managing multi million dollar projects. it was dogshit.

4 years xDDD i learned nothing. at least you will have money :DDD + ability to move/work wherever is nice honestly i think my only hope is to find work in non-profit or government where i can feel i am doing something of value. maybe this will help you too :DD
2021-09-15 19:38
That sounds ass, did you try and find anything better within accounting or just decide accounting wasn’t the path? I’ve done AP/AR before, it’s mind numbingly boring.
2021-09-15 19:46
Sounds like overwork situation, i bet your next accounting job is gonna be better

I have a friend who worked at Amazon as a truck driver. He used to steal so many boxes and used to sell what he found for half the price. He said that he found a video on youtube that explained how to remove the alarm system and all the security stuff from the boxes that he was moving. in 2018 he gave me a PS4 Slim with fifa 18 icons edition and one dualshock controller for only about 200 dollars lol

If this isn't bait... I feel the same. Somewhat. I hate my office job, especially since I switched positions in the company and I was promoted to lead a team of 8 people. I earn a more than decent salary but that's about it. Before covid (and my promotion) I was travelling around the world to our different sites and I thought I wouldn't miss it. I was wrong and the chance to go back is more or less non-existent. I have already decided that I'll do this shit for 4 or 5 more years and than call it quits and apply for some job I WANT to do even if it's not a high wage. The office kills me.

Man... any reason you feel like you have to wait 4-5 years? There's the classic story of people saying something like that, and then end up there your whole life :O Hope u find something more fulfilling

Saving up money. I have some kind of schedule when it comes to this stuff. The house is paid off and now I'm buying flats to rent them out. After a few years I will definitely get out of this shit, at least if nothing completely insane happens :D

if you are a creative person, I think warehouse is better than accounting I remember some quote from author, can't remember who, who said it's better to sell your body for labour than selling your brain, so he could use his brain when he came back home. so he definitely would approve. but also depends if you have a family to support and warehouse on Amazon is not really the best paying job, but if you are solo wolf then might be good. I've done some warehouse jobs and it made me wanna blow my brains out as well though, so be prepared that you might want to change job again in a bit. I wish you best of luck mens
