The laborers say that because of Amazon’s strict bundling targets and break micromanagement, they essentially don’t have sufficient energy to trek to restrooms โ€” which can be rare in Amazon’s colossal stockrooms. FC Ambassadors clearly discredit this claim.

Over on Twitter, some are calling the entire thing absolute dreadful.

Itโ€™s important that we do a good job of educating people about the actual environment inside our fulfillment centers, and the FC ambassador program is a big part of that along with the fulfilment center tours we provide. Those tours enable thousands of customers every year to come and see for themselves what itโ€™s like to work inside one of our fulfilment centers.
