Jobs in the Amazon Warehouse: Fulfillment
But what exactly happens in the Amazon warehouses? Each warehouse is an employer for hundreds and sometimes thousands of people and the employees are responsible for five basic tasks:
- Unpacking and checking incoming goods
- Storage of goods
- Recording the location in the system
- Putting together shipments
Finally, the purchase transaction takes place here in the Amazon warehouses: If an order is placed in the online store, the work in the warehouses begins. The goods are removed from the shelves, then packed and shipped. The transport of the goods is recorded in the tracking system and the buyer is always kept up to date until the order is in his hands. If he is not satisfied with it or has decided otherwise, he finally sends the goods back so that they have to be reprocessed in the warehouse.

In addition to logistics, fulfillment also includes accounting and payment processing. Amazon offers merchants a special service called Fulfillment by Amazon, where all these issues are handled by Amazon.
Working Method in Amazon Warehouses
The work in the warehouses is largely determined by the so-called pickers and stowers. If a customer places an order on amazon.de, it is passed on to the warehouse and a picker working there. Computer technology is then used to show the customer which goods he has to pick from the shelves. He always takes care of several orders at the same time and the software provides him with the fastest possible route to the respective shelves or goods, so that each work step takes as little time as possible.
He places the goods in containers which the packers receive on the conveyor belts and finally assemble them as packages for the customer. When the parcel is ready, it is automatically addressed and finally moved to the trucks via conveyor belts.
Next to the pickers there is also the stower. These ensure that the incoming goods are stored accordingly. A hand-held scanner shows them where the next available shelf space is. The hand scanner stores the position, stores it in the software and can thus inform the pickers when they need to ship the goods.
The pickers and stowers are increasingly supported by robots, which take away the sometimes long footpaths to transport the goods. They can move goods with a total weight of up to 340 kg.
