I’m an Amazon employee – there are 4 things you should never buy from the warehouse, you’ll regret itJanuary 15, 2022
AMAZON is probably everyone's answer when they need something quick but don't want to spend time searching store after store.
And although it may seem like it has anything you might ever need, some things are best bought in actual stores.
An Amazon employee, whose identity The Sun has chosen to protect, claimed there are certain products you should never order off Amazon.
The woman who works as a picker – or the person who puts together the orders for customers – revealed you shouldn't buy beverages, shampoos, silicone kitchen appliances, and lotions with a screw top.
She then further claimed that some of the Amazon workers will maliciously tamper with some products, so it's best to be wary.
Taking to the comment section, she and other Amazon employees explained that those four products are not usually packed properly when they get to the warehouse and will usually burst open.
"Shampoos and lotions always end up spilling or overall getting damaged before they get to being packed," one person claimed.
A second added: "Just don't buy food from amazon. It is dusty and dirty everywhere."

And an Amazon driver said: "As an Amazon delivery driver, don’t order cases of water nor dog food."
As for the silicone kitchen utensils, another one claimed: "They come out of the plastic wrap packing often and end up on the floor or somewhere dusty.
"We just place them back in the plastic and send it out."
The Sun has reached out to Amazon for comment but didn't receive any at the time of publication.
Previously, another employee explained how they quit their job at an Amazon warehouse after being forced to stand all day.
The former Amazon employee, from Connecticut, claimed that even when she was tired, she wasn’t allowed to sit down, which caused her to suffer an injury that left her leg bruised while at work.
“It was modern 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 tired. The box fell on my leg and bruised my right shin.”
The ex-employee said they would check her leg out but never wanted her to go to human resources because “they didn’t want to deal with that liability.”
In addition to getting written up if she sat down, she got into major trouble if management saw her cellphone out.
“If you get written up six times, you’re fired,” she said. “It was a joke, I was already written up four times when I left.”
The employee, who parted ways with Amazon in August 2021, said the company would create contests within the warehouse to see who could work fastest and award those workers with points for prizes.
“They would say, ‘Let’s see who can go the fastest within the next hour,’ and award that person with a free water bottle and items like that.”
