I love the part where Stephen Stotch comes back home with the Amazon packages and gives Linda Stotch a whisk that looks exactly the same as the hand whisk she is already using except for with a hand crank. A completely unnecessary purchase that sums up consumer culture perfectly.

A lot of people here don't understand whats bad about this kind of Job. Its not the work, driving, monotony. The problem is the horrible treatment of workers. The unbearable micro managing, the ridiculous productivity goals, constant threat of being fired, constant cameras watching you, security frisking you. Amazon treats you like a robot, and that's the problem. There's other warehouse Jobs that super chill to work at while being just as productive. Just need to treat you as a human.

You also forgot to mention the poor paycheck, the fact you can't have random time off for human events either. (Two workers died at a center on the same day and the rest of workers were not allowed time off to grieve or they'd be fired)

Yeah, I currently live with my parents still, and they always say that Amazon, as a big company, would never stoop so low. They always say that I heard it from the "Wrong people" or that "one individual who probably didn't have a good work ethic". Dinner conversations suck with them.

I worked there for 4 months. An in between jobs job that I never intended to keep. More just to see what the fuss was about. And oh my god…. I don’t even know where to begin. For me, the worst part was probably the micromanaging. I had a supervisor up my ass about my rate every week. Never understood how it was possible I was getting slower. Discovered that when I was being “taken off task” to help someone with something else, it wasn’t pausing my rate. So my clock was running while nothing was being logged. It was destroying my rates. This took considerable digging just to figure this out. Once I did, I approached my manager about the problem. This is where it gets good… I was told it would not effect my employment since it wasn’t my error. They were starting me at a fresh rate the following week and would fix the problem. At the time, I was trying to get out of the division I was in and go to a different one. In order to do so, I had to post three consecutive weeks at the rate they expected. I explained that I’d been at this already for more than three weeks and that it was not my fault my rate was so low. Surely there was a way to find my true rate by erasing the time where I was idle and so on…. Nope. Just keep your head down and give us another three weeks of your life. That week, I checked my rate. Lower than it had ever been. Same fucking thing. So I went to a higher up and they told me the exact same thing - “oh wow, yeah that’s not supposed to happen. We’ll get you on a fresh track next week.” I told this woman that I had already been learning so many other things within the building and had demonstrated such a strong motivation to do a good job that I was constantly being pulled away from “my task”. I explained I didn’t really trust what was happening anymore. Told her I was going to file a formal complaint with the building manager. Next week I was moved to a different division. I was then watched like a hawk. Yet I excelled because it was work I’d done long ago in my past and was like second nature to me. Regardless, constantly reminded of my rate. Constantly micromanaged. Saw so many insane safety violations within this division and couldn’t help but think that if they’d actually been watching for that stuff instead of micromanaging people like me, it would have instantly improved the safety quality within the building. About three weeks later, I ruptured a tendon in my wrist. No accident. Just repeated use. Went to the medical facility and was immediately requested to see a doctor of Amazon’s request. That or I could not get a second opinion if I went outside their recommendation. Had to be done that day. The “doctor” that I saw was clearly on the payroll, so to speak. Took an x-ray, and while it was “too swollen” to properly tell, he still diagnosed it as a broken bone after the technician came back with the images. Then told me the only way I could have broken that particular bone was if I had had an accident like a fall. I told him I’d had no fall or accident at work or outside. He gave a veiled threat/accusation that I needed to be completely honest about any accident I might have had outside work or it could spell employment problems. Never budged. Had nothing to lie about and told him I was going to get an MRI to figure out what had really happened. Had to pay for the MRI out of pocket, as my disability with them had lapsed in the time it took them to clear my MRI through their insurance. MRI showed conclusive evidence of a ruptured tendon and a CT scan showed absolutely zero evidence of a bone having ever been broken in that wrist. The doctor had given a completely fabricated diagnosis to cover Amazon’s ass. I took my case to a lawyer. They explained that I would absolutely win the case if I pursued it. How much? After all the bs was said and done, less than two grand. And I’d be expected to be back at work before it was wrapped up and finalized. I couldn’t imagine a more hellish ending to this fiasco. You certainly couldn’t get me back in that building working for those dipshits for a measly two grand! I work at UPS now. Another huge company. They’re not without their faults, but it is infinitely better. Almost incomparable. You’re treated like a person first and foremost. Your benefits don’t kick in the day you sign your life away, but if you stick through it for 9 months, they will NEVER FUCK WITH YOU. EVER. And they’re amazing benefits. I’m getting a knee replacement next week. It’s been smooth sailing as far as the paperwork and all that is concerned. They went out of their way to be cool to me and accommodate. Lastly, we have a union. It’s part of the deal. There’s problems with that too - nothing is perfect - but we do have power to fight back and make demands when the company starts overstepping its bounds. And they take it deadly serious. The idea that I could be sent to a doctor on UPS’ that would do what that asshole did for Amazon is unthinkable. The idea that I would have a supervisor or manager up my ass about a fucking rate is laughable. The idea that a supervisor or manager could keep making the same mistake over and over again and it have negative impacts on my performance reviews? No. Countless safety violations? No. And why? Because our union would bend them over for it in a heartbeat. I know I wrote a lot, but there’s not one word of a lie in it. I’ve had crappy jobs in my life. It makes a man out of you, so to speak. But working at Amazon is something else altogether. It’s vile. It makes you feel dirty and empty. It’s an evil place. If you somehow stumbled on what I wrote and you or anyone you care about is currently thinking of working there, please don’t. Find something else, no matter how shitty it may seem. And if you’re already working there, don’t just walk away. Run like hell.

Was a driver for amazon, lasted a month. You get yelled at and ridiculed for asking questions in the fulfillment center, the people who worked at the one I drove for were very grumpy and unhappy people. The work was always way too much and you were expected, as a driver, to deliver everything no matter the amount. I'd clock in around 10:30am to 10:45am and be clocking out around 11pm and be home passed midnight pretty much everyday. When i quit the dispatcher lady i worked with told me she didn't blame me, and that the stress of the job makes her depressed quite often. You don't just a get job there, it becomes your life.

I worked in a factory making pallets for a while, the job was repetitive, mind numbing, and honestly I don't remember half of it. The job wasn't too bad except no heating or air. After that I went back to college and honestly I don't know what to say since I'm struggling to find my career. But honestly, even now, I don't mind it because during college I found a job that paid just as much in a better environment. Factory work is bearable but damn does it get boring.

Was a flex contractor for a year at Amazon. Everyone at these centers looked stressed and really on edge. The manager seemed smug as hell too. Each month we were expected to deliver more than the previous. Deliver 17 packages in 3 hours. (No problem) Then 24, then 29, then they only have 4 hour slots so they can give you more to deliver. When I saw that I had 58 deliveries to do in 4 hours with a 50 minute drive away to my first delivery it was just to much and stopped then and there. I was working hours for free to finish my shift. Also you pay for your own gas and that eats heavily into your pay. When I gave feedback to Amazon they took away my schedule.

@Kevin Keel I agree with point A but not necessarily with point B. Small businesses are often thought as mom n' pop shops with one or two employees when the reality is you can earn millions as a small business simply by maintaining the minimum number of employees required to qualify. Small businesses are just as exploitative as big businesses only they receive so much protection under the law that they can treat their employees far worse with less consequences.

@Kevin Keel Walmart's employees are largely dependent on government benefits to feed and house themselves. They have zero interest in a living wage. As for small businesses, if you can't pay your employees enough to live you don't have a viable business.

@E. Pluribus Unum that’s my point. They get regulated constantly, but to no real effect, and often the regulations help out big businesses. For example, places like target or Walmart will lobby for a higher minimum wage, as they can afford to pay their employees slightly more but their competition from small businesses cannot.

For everyone saying this was so accurate, yes, only to the good parts. What about waiting in line for an hour before shift to go through security. What about lack of bathroom breaks and being fired just so they can meet turnover quotas. How about all the devices they use to monitor employees and how much time they take to complete an order/package. This is a great video highlighting working at a fulfillment center, a bad video of showing what working at an Amazon fulfillment center is like. Way too many basic human rights were shown.

I hate how true this one is. I get PTSD thinking back to the hell hole that was the Amazon FC I worked at. Just a quick overview of the treatment I experienced: Ten hour shifts of picking in a warehouse that is 80-90 degrees in the "winter" and 100+ in the summer. There were a limited number of box fans that were quickly snatched up by the early birds of the shift. The rest were left to swelter in the heat. Same goes for the stools that gave a little comfort. This was ten hours of reaching up to the top of a bin to bending over to picking from the bottom. We had breaks that began with the last item scanned. You would then log out of your console and then walk to the breakroom (about 3-5 minutes because the facility was so big). You needed to be back at your station, logged in, and scanning the next item by the time 15 minutes had passed from your last scan. Do the math and you will see that Amazon gives their workers about 5 minutes or so to get off their feet and rest. Of course, if you were buddies with the managers, you could take extended breaks. You did get an hour unpaid lunch, so there was that. But imagine not being able to listen to music and working in a hot and humid environment with no air circulation for ten hours. I would go home and just pass out from exhaustion. I didn't eat or shower until it was time to wake up for the next shift. This was my life while I was working at Amazon. Honestly, thinking back to how absolutely horrible this company treats their workers, I just can't believe it's legal.

I know it’s terrible and all, but I work construction and I wear a set of tool bags that weighs 40 pounds all day long. I sit down for one ten minute break and one half hour lunch every day. I work down in the mud, the heat, the freezing cold. I walk over uneven ground carrying heavy loads and constantly am using tools that could ruin multiple parts of your body if you lose focus. I work at heights we’re if you fall you die, if you tie off your harness wrong, you die. I have a bad shoulder, a bad knee, a bad back and am in pain most of the time. I’m 41 and can’t play ball with my kids because it hurts to run. It was a job I started when I was 14 and didn’t know better and before I knew what was happening I was married with kids and didn’t see a way out. I’m not complaining, just giving perspective.

I'm doin that too... Frankly I'd rather do it than work in a office or warehouse. I get to be outdoors, at the least, in different work sites. I see the finished product of my work. Much more fulfilling than working at a fulfillment center. So it's a tradeoff. Fulfillment vs less physical labor. And in my opinion, I see office people complain about the same physical issues; they still get back problems too, from sitting. Aging is the biggest culprit - even for a construction guy, going to the gym is important, just to work out those muscles you don't get to use very often. That's how you age better, by constantly getting new stimuli, as long as you can.

The song was written about the old coal mining companies. Miners and their families would live in houses owned by and pay rent to the mining companies and shop at the company owned stores for everything from clothes to food. Merle Travis got the line about the company store from his father who was a coal miner. He would often say, "I can't afford to die, I owe my soul to the company store.".

This is EXTREMELY accurate. There's like minor things that are different, like we don't walk around with those orange robots, but there are some they walk around with in different types of centers. I really do have to give them props for getting it so close considering the animators aren't working in one of the FC's. I am hoping I can move up from grunt to drone pilot someday.

I really feel for the guys who work in these places because from what I've read elsewhere and of course the comments here the place is a hellhole. I know a lot of companies have horrible toxic environments which is why I do my best to treat any customer facing employees as nicely as I can. I worked in a really horrendous environment for a few years and I saw everything from mental breakdowns to rampant drug use. I even saw our CEO get punched out by someone who had just snapped. Probably why Jeff Bezos will never set foot in an amazon warehouse haha.

I have no idea what these people are talking about, I much prefer working here than customer service and I have not been treated horribly or yelled at once. Maybe it is just not difficult for me to make the desired rate or something, but most of the people I work with are kind and mind their own business. I knew what I was getting into when I signed up but the people in the comments seem to have had the absolute worst experience. Amazon hires so many people and you won’t hear about people liking their job online because most people who give an opinion on something complain about it since why would you feel the need to if you were doing fine

I worked at a fulfillment center two different times. I never lasted more than a month. Not because I can't take hard work (I'm a power lineman) but because it was literally soul crushing. Nothing but yellow and gray. They treat you like a slave. Unobtainable quotas, absolute minimum legal break time, only one bathroom you're allowed to use, and it's almost always on the other side of the center and you can only go on your break. Fifteen minute break and 7 minutes to get to the bathroom, one minute to use it, and 7 to walk back. You literally use your whole break to piss.

If you want a depressing story...Australia introduced a cane toad (that was too lazy to jump high enough, to eat the beetle it was introduced for..), that has decimated native critters of every strata (through its toxicity to predators, and voracity of appetite for anything smaller (and they get big, dinner plate big),. One irony, while they were spreading from the introduced area, a firearms ban went into effect (even air-rifles), that may have helped mitigate the spread a bit (they are a very invasive species), to the point now, where if you are old enough, you remember there were a lot more, of every other critter around. Now?....not so much. They are spreading from the tropics, and when they get to the more populated area in the south (being territorial, it is inevitable, they will hibernate in colder weather, breed, and go on the move, mainly unseen, at night, breeding in any suitable water they find), when people realise they have them?, it is already too late.

@ZenosOsgorma Lol Yes very much really! There isn't just one van buzzing about a city, there are fleets of vans, delivering tens of thousands of parcels a day, across the entire road network! That's not just city people, it is people all over! I'm from the UK so trust me I know all about expensive car ownership, especially recently. The vast majority of non city people, even poorer ones like me, all still drive, some even to the shopping centre in the same town they live in. Car ownership is pretty much a necessity here since the public transport options are frankly bollocks most of the time, again apart from cities. Taxis are expensive. Amazon is not the be all and end all anyway, they still have to "go into town" anyway either way whether they're using eBay/Amazon or not. Supermarkets deliveries are very popular here too, but that's the exact same argument I'm making for Amazon, all those deliveries condensed into one chassis, again with an engine that is being warmed up properly since it's running about 16 hours a day.

@ZIGZAG! Really no, not really, thst only applies when your driving to outer town shops which are typically 30mins out of the way, you underestimate the amount of people living in town centers or with 30mins of a town centers, (I'm not counting NYC etc because that's been driven into the ground by property corporations/tycoons) Your logic only applies, using supermarket models, where using a car is a necessity. Things are changing again, as using a car is becoming more expensive to manage and run, local sales is the future now (just maybe not your traditional brick & mortar places but home run businesses, where you can get your item within 4hours and pick it up without needing a car or having to pay for a car, locally cheap delivery or even free like I am doing. Those couriers doing customer deliveries, are slowly switching back to manufacturer delivering and people like me using the uber eats model are and will beat amazon into the ground as my costs are only getting cheaper. Consider this, all businesses started out out of their homes, including your local vets before they got their practice to expand into surgery etc. There will be a increase in demand, otherwise, how the f am I expanding my product range only based off local sales, people don't like waiting or spending money for the delivery of one item and it does not suit the majority that don't use amazon prime or use it enough to warrant its savings. Town centers All over the are being invested in, we got new shopping distracts being built in town centers too, why would the government give millions to towns if they didn't see this switch coming. I'm no genius but I csn certainly see trends from my own business experience and results. As for the usa, I'd jump on the money wagon and set up a small local in your town, if you csn find the distributors that go via your town. plus for financial on a personal level, working for yourself is much more profitable than working for a Corporation courier company delivering 60-150 parcels a day, I make just as much packing 3-5 orders a day and going out locally for much less work hours. (in my experience I've only got time to burn and much more room to earn more money than delivering parcels for 12 hours a day) either way its always better financially in this modern era to work for yourself and subsidise it with agency work.

The fact is though (and the evidence from studies over whelming supports this), that IF a company gives it's staff a certain amoubt of latitude and autonomy, AND involves them and their opinions/experiences in the decisions and the running of the company, they are much more productive, happy and harder working. Also, there is far greater retention of staff, career advancement and loyalty. Companies forget that. Kaizen, as the japanese call it, is the practice of involving EVERY member of staff in the decision making of the Corporation, and workers are rewarded for pointing out systemic flaws, or offering suggestions on how working practices and conditions can be improved. This is why companies such as Toyota have an incredibly low failure rate, resolve failures and issue recalls without quibble or denial almost immediately and play the 'long time'. Hence they own the auto industries, and have an almost total monopoly on motorcycle manufacture.

Recommended reading: "Hard Times" by Studs Terkel. Its a collection of memoirs of the great depression AND of people who were born after that have heard about it from others. Its both a record of what life was like during a massive traumatic event in American history and an in-depth look at the way that Americans remember the past. Extremely relevant content; I started reading it around the time I got back into South Park this year and its only served to make me more aware of what's happening in this country and why. I bring it up because there's a chapter that opens on the lyrics to this song, and knowing that M+T have made multiple references to this song / time period in various episodes it feels appropriate to anyone into the way they depict the Amazon company town effect. We've been here before, and we won't get out of it (barring the country getting into another "great" war), if we don't learn a lesson from the past.

@IzThat it Pretty much this. The sketch is hilarious. While I'm glad to see the pendulum swing the other way a bit to benefit workers, anyone who thinks there's some real equivalency between this skit and the coal mines of the past are fucking delusional. I also think many people are missing the obvious irony in the skit, which is the only reason he "owes his soul to the company store" is because he keeps buying their shit. Bringing home multiple boxes, subscribing to Prime - these aren't necessary purchases but he keeps making them....which means he has to go pay for them by working at Amazon. And work is, you know, work. It ain't fun. If someone chooses manual labor - and that's what a warehouse job is - then they didn't get hired for their mind. They got hired for physical labor and I frankly don't give a much of a shit about how someone's knee or shoulder is achy. Too bad. Almost all work causes some sort of health issue - for instance office jobs contribute to mental burnout and sitting too long is a primary contributing factor to obesity - so whinging about how your wrist hurts isn't getting you any sympathy. Not to mention that you're getting fairly well paid for a low skill, no qualifications job so go cry elsewhere.

This segment is beautiful and thought provoking. I've been at an Amazon facility for 18 months, the last year part time (10-15hr/week). Like many of you, I don't look forward to work, but I realize it's work, not instagram "work" - it's real, physical labor, you feel your joints at the end of a 10 hour shift, and you don't smell as good as when you came in. The first couple of months were the worst; I had dreams of picking, pushing a cart down an isle, yelling out "corner!" and "crossing!". And the freezer, my goodness, it's like an alien world. I remember working some night shifts where I was alone in the freezer, no sounds except me, a thin cloud of water vapor a few feet above my head, the mask scratching against my face, ice building up inside, freezing from my breath. And even with all that, it's not all bad. Amazon pays on time, always. There's very little drama at my facility. I don't have to lie to or screw anyone just to make a living - it's honest work, you come in, do a fixed amount of intellectually undemanding work and leave. No crazy problems to solve. And as a part time evening gig, after a full day of working someplace where I actually have to use my mind, the exercise doesn't hurt. Just by working 10-15hrs/week (2-3 shifts) I've been able to add about another $10k to my family's budget this year, after taxes. The first three months I worked there, they let us use headphones. Those were the glory days. I listened to so many podcasts and audiobooks; I was in my own world of thought and barely felt the time pass. If they allowed headphones again, it would reduce 95% of the boredom of doing repetitive tasks. Summary: warehouse work is real, honest, physical labor. It's not your dream job, it's not your "best life". You won't flex on your friends about how cool and rich you are. If you're not into that and just want a chance to show up, do honest work and support your family, you will.

I lucked out on my four months at Amazon. I worked as an outbound item picker for most of the Christmas rush. I liked being able to walk around the warehouse as it was exercise and I would ponder at some of the items that were ordered, two that stood out was a vibrating pleasure bar, and a Trump Hat (in Canada). One time I picked a bag of plain lays chips I was really confused about that one. Anyway they did have schedules and quotas to meet, but my supervisors never yelled at or threatened to fire me for some slow days. Probably due to the Christmas rush, as for why I left. I was moved over to the inbound customer returns. Our job was to inspect items that customers would return for refunds and if they could be resold, and to keep an eye open for sneaky methods of "free"funds as I call them. Like stuffing a coffee maker box with bottled water. (actually happened) I did not like that section as the starting shift was 7:30 am to 6:00 pm same as the pickers. What I disliked the most was work location, we didn't have chairs to sit on. So I would be standing in the same space for more than 10 hours inspecting boxes, while listening to a radio station that I had no control over and played repetitive music. I really started to hate despacito. I was in that spot for a week before I decided to leave.

The only atmosphere they didn't capture was dock. I work inbound dock and you actually get to work with some pretty awesome people. Otherwise, this is entirely accurate. Especially working night shift, we almost have to use Amazon because nothing is open in our free time.

I'm old, but we actually had a company store for the local cotton mill. We ran a tab there for food and other things, cashed our check there, and paid the tab when we could. Well, my parents did that stuff as I was a small child. The actual store building is still there, but of course is not a company store now. We used to sing that song a lot.

I worked at an Amazon fulfillment center for a year and some change. The one thing that struck me about this was how accurate the inside of the building was. For those who've never worked at Amazon, it almost looks exactly like this right down to the break rooms. I'm surprised that they didn't include those little 'suicide boxes' that have telephones directly linked to suicide prevention hotlines. I'm proud to say that I stole so much time from Amazon on my clock-ins and outs. I got fired for it later, but I'd been doing it for so long and nobody noticed until I had to fix my time card. And you bet your ass I would do it again at Amazon. Love my new job! Get out and find something better.

This is how most large warehouses run. I worked at one (not Amazon) my first summer of college. They literally wouldn't allow you to use the bathroom unless it was a scheduled break. The micro managing for a job a second grader could do was enough to put you over the edge and the sexual harrassment was off the charts (by my smelly manager). I took the bus to work and the creep would be at my bus stop in his smelly car at 6:30 in the AM to give me a lift the rest of the way to work. I'd refuse and he would name call me degrading names. I was 18 years old. The money was great though and I needed it for school. My boyfriend wanted to take care of the loser but I told him to wait for the summer to end👿

I worked at a grocery store that was going nowhere and needed a new job. I figured a warehouse job would be a decent pay raise. However, I specifically avoided going to Amazon because of how it was depicted on South Park. Even ignoring their alien supervillain version of Bezos, this scene alone showed how depressing a mind-numbing working there would be. Even dealing with Karens and idiot bosses at the store would be better than this. Thankfully I got a job at FedEx that is a lot laxer and more stable, with bosses treating us like human beings and not like cogs in a machine.

@R. Landes why are you scared of anime man. Me and my girlfriend watch it, happily for 4 years. Got into a top tier university studying for a mathematics degree. Not ONCE has anime EVER made my life more difficult. I'm an avid gamer too. Despite what people say, you can game to the point of addiction and watch anime and succeed in life.

@WavingBuddy omg, I was literally trying to figure a way to keep track of my packing bc I know the rate that pops up on the screen is not right, at least of late. The best was around 4am on my Saturday shift, the guy over the loud speaker was calling out rates,he said my name ,wall and everything and that I was killing it with a rate of 365,then a little later,the screen pops up telling me I had packed at a rate of 166. I was like wtf. I always bust my ass but lately I noticed no matter what the rates are lower. Counting and using pen/paper wouldn't work for me in AFE bc I am usually running,reaching, climbing lol to get the items asap. But I completely hear ya.

I worked at Amazon in the UK for three months over Christmas. It was actually alright, but it's only alright if you're prepared to accept that you're gonna be working really hard throughout the night for ten hours doing an insanely repetitive task, and then repeating the whole thing again every night for the rest of the week. The managers were decent really laid back, we used headphones and got free food and bottles of water. I also got paid a £2000 bonus just for joining and the money was good anyway. Was it a long term career choice, nah definitely not, but it was a decent place to do some graft to get some money together. I bet if you worked at the wrong factory though, where the managers were peices of shit, then it would be the worst job on the planet.

I worked at a factory for about eight years of my life. I’m telling you, working at a factory is the worst hell imaginable. You can multiply that by 10 if you are a creative tape. You just want to work a job where you have to use your mind a little bit and use your creativity meanwhile you are condemned to Performing the same task all day just to survive
