I left Amazon on July 19, 2022. I began work at another job a week after.
The month of August proved a better livelihood into the future.
There was no depth to or any future working at Amazon.
The position I had as a locker Hub associate was a bit fun yet there was really no substance to the role.
Aside from the job not offering any compliment to my abilities whereas I could be challenged and grow, there was no opportunity to significantly advance.
In addition, there was no guarantee of a steady concurrent schedule or any schedule at all if one was not able to successfully compete with other employees on the App Amazon had set up for workers to be on to arrange their own timetable at a designated time every weekday.
Another drawback was Amazon only allowed us employees four hours a day of work unless one was lucky enough to catch a second four-hour shift for the same day.
And, I do not even want to elaborate on the absurd cap situation that limited the hours we were able to actually work. Amazon only extended hours to us if others canceled shifts and they needed others to fill in.
I had another profession to fall back on one I could always return to if I chose, in spite of that fact I preferred a change of field at the time.
I am one to look toward the future, to plan ahead. There was just no way to expect a stable income as there was no guarantee of steady work or making a living off of four hours a day at the pay-rate Amazon handed out.
I prayed for a dependable schedule, for a higher wage. I also prayed against certain co-workers who were envious, jealous, spiteful and prone to cause trouble.
The last time I prayed against those who were a problem a drama took place with one of them the next day along with nonsense from a new manager.
This was the day I decided to quit Amazon.
It was time for me to go, time for me to move on.
It was the answer to my prayers. Resolution had come in a way unexpected to how I anticipated it would be.
I realized this immediately when it all initially happened.
It was even better than what I hoped for now that I look back in hindsight.
I already had a peace of mind- yet now I am more at peace and at ease within spirit.
God removed me from an environment surrounded by negativity. What others in particular intended for harm God turned into my advantage.
I now have the stable work hours I desired; I have the higher pay that I desired.
Amazon was just another stepping stone in life where I was not meant to stand on too long. Only long enough to get me to the next level of plan.
While I have progressed and continue to rise in the paths accorded to my journey those coworkers who were a burden continue to remain stuck/shiftless, unable to go anywhere beyond the holes they have dug for themselves as they are completely limited within life and within capacity.
