AMAZON is probably everyone’s answer when they need something quickly but don’t want to waste time searching from store to store.
And while it looks like it has just about anything you could possibly need, it’s best to buy some at the physical stores.
An Amazon employee, who was selected by The Sun to protect his identity, claims that there are certain products you should never order outside of Amazon.
The woman who picks items – or who aggregates customer orders – reveals that you shouldn’t buy screw-top drinks, shampoos, kitchen appliances, and lotions.
She then further claims that some Amazon employees will maliciously counterfeit certain products, so best be on the lookout.
When it came to the comments section, she and other Amazon employees explained that those four products often weren’t packed properly when they arrived at the warehouse and would often fall apart.
“Shampoo and lotion are always spilled or overall damaged before being packaged,” one person asserted.
A second added: “Just don’t buy food from amazon. There’s dust and dirt everywhere.”
And one Amazon driver said: “As an Amazon delivery driver, don’t order water or dog food cases.”
As for silicone kitchenware, another asserted: “They often come out of the plastic wrap and fall on the floor or somewhere dusty.
“We just put them back in the plastic and sent it out.”
The Sun has reached out to Amazon for comment but has not received any comment at the time of publication.
Before that, another staff member explained How they quit their jobs at an Amazon warehouse after being forced to stand all day.
Before Amazon An employee from Connecticut said that even when she was tired, she was not allowed to sit down, which caused her to suffer a leg injury while working.
“It’s modern day slavery,” the 22-year-old exclusively told The Sun.
She added: “They put a lot of pressure on you to work fast and yell at you if you sit down.
“I was picking up a heavy box and I was very tired. The box fell on my leg and bruised my right shin.”
The former employee said they would check her feet but never wanted her to go into HR because “they didn’t want to deal with that responsibility”.
In addition to getting a letter if she sits down, she’s in big trouble if management sees her cell phone.
“If you get it wrong six times, you get fired,” she said. “It was a joke, I was written up four times when I left.”
Employees parted ways with Amazon in August 2021, saying the company would hold competitions in its warehouse to see who could work the fastest and award prizes to those workers.
“They’ll say, ‘Let’s see who can go fastest in the next hour’ and give that person a free bottle of water and the like.”
