Amazon in recent times has come under fire for their ruthless approach to staff welfare, and all that neglect of working their workers to the bone has earnt them the title of one of the most efficient companies on earth, with warehouses achieving a pick rate of just 33 seconds.
That means every 33 seconds the staff are expected to pick a customer order from the vast warehouses. Workers often walk up to 11 miles a shift within these warehouses and staff report that the pressure to meet these extremely high targets is phenomenal.
You can see what a challenge they face just by looking at these pictures. What appears to be a mesmerizing sea of aisle upon aisle, shelf upon shelf must be pretty organised for workers to even come closer to their 33 second pick rate.
