Many negative things have been said about how Amazon treats it employees but so far that hasn't stopped me from using the service. As a customer I have mostly good things to say. I have placed 12 orders in the last 6 months. I'm waiting for two items to be delivered - one is a travel diary specifically for travelling in Scotland and the other is a UK adaptor for my electronics.
There have been a couple of blips over the past few years of ordering (and I have to say convenience is a big factor for me in using Amazon in addition to being able to find just about anything I could possibly want no matter how rare or tiny)...I have twice ordered a silver sim card tray for my fairly new iPhone. The one that came with the phone was silver and broke the first time I tried to take it out of the side of the phone. I found a seller and ordered a new silver tray for just a couple of dollars. Sadly they sent me a blue one. I emailed the seller and explained I wanted silver to match my phone and I received another in the mail the following week...again it was blue. I was never charged for the second WRONG item and have given up for now. (Ironically the tray I am using is from my old iPhone which was...you guessed...BLUE!
Another thing I like about Amazon is my Amazon Prime Membership: for about $7.00/month I can stream a ton of movies and TV series in addition to getting 2 day free delivery for almost everything I order. For someone who also pays $11/monthly just to stream Netflix this is a great deal!
Do you use Amazon? How do you feel about the complaints of poor pay and benefits plus harsh working conditions from their employees?
