Interview With an Ex-Amazon Employee from Morroco

In this podcast I interview Ex-Amazon Customer service employee Ismaila Ndiaye.  Ismaila and his wife both worked for the company.  However, she is now sick and they are both Jobless.  They are doing there best considering the circumstances and had this to share.  

Amazon.com, Inc., doing business as Amazon,  is a multinational technology company focusing in e-commerce, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence in Seattle, Washington. 

Amazon is the largest e-commerce marketplace and cloud computing platform in the world as measured by revenue and market capitalization. Amazon.com was founded by Jeff Bezos on July 5, 1994, and started as an online bookstore but later diversified to sell video downloads/streaming, MP3 downloads/streaming, audiobook downloads/streaming, software, video games, electronics, apparel, furniture, food, toys, and jewelry. The company also owns a publishing arm, Amazon Publishing, a film and television studio, Amazon Studios, produces consumer electronics lines including Kindle e-readers, Fire tablets, Fire TV, and Echo devices, and is the world's largest provider of cloud infrastructure services (IaaS and PaaS) through its AWS subsidiary. Amazon has separate retail websites for some countries and also offers international shipping of some of its products to certain other countries. 100 million people subscribe to Amazon Prime. 

Amazon is the largest Internet company by revenue in the world and the second largest employer in the United States. In 2015, Amazon surpassed Walmart as the most valuable retailer in the United States by market capitalization. In 2017, Amazon acquired Whole Foods Market for $13.4 billion, which vastly increased Amazon's presence as a brick-and-mortar retailer. The acquisition was interpreted by some as a direct attempt to challenge Walmart's traditional retail stores.

Readers, including Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, say they are appalled by the anecdotes of insensitivity in the Times report. But the controversy has raised the possibility that the underlying business model portrayed in the article is legitimate or perhaps inevitable. The Times article quotes an ex-Amazon employee who says CEO Jeff Bezos has envisioned a “new workplace: fluid but tough, with employees staying only a short time and employers demanding the maximum.”


Working at Amazon: 189 Suicide Attempts, Mental Health Episodes Reportedly Took Place Over Five Years

The 189 calls about Amazon employees, which Amazon tracked through police reports and emergency call logs, came from 46 Amazon warehouses in 17 states. These 46 facilities make up a quarter of such spaces around the country.  Calls to 911 dispatchers detailed incidents in which Amazon workers tried to cut themselves and talked about killing themselves. 

"They started treating human beings as robots, essentially," he told CBS News in 2018. "If it proves cheaper to replace humans with machines, I assume they will do that. I couldn't see them being concerned with people losing their jobs."
