shut the fuck up

Yah there’s plenty dystopian about amazon already, providing the their employees with safety shoes is not one of them lol
its dystopian considering the only purpose of the free shoes is to prevent workmans comp while advertizing zappos to 1 million plus employees
My feet hit everything so safety shoes were a must. The thick, rubber backs of my last pair are mangled and sliced up from being hit by the cages I pulled behind me. Saved me so many times! 😨
I used all my credit towards 5 pairs of various kinds of insoles to put in my regular shoes. 🤷♂️
People are complaining about free shoes, I'm so confused. They fit great and good brands are also available. I'm really lost about this, if you don't want them you can even order for a family member. Why are people at Amazon so picky? This is a great benefit that I really appreciate.
How do you get this to work I thought I had to make an account with Zappos then it told me to put my work email and what not
Use your own personal email, and then link your work login. Needs to be done at the special zappos link and not the main store.
Update I’m not eligible apparently
Glad they worked for you. They were the worst pair of damn boots I ever had.
(Plus the complaint is really more that I get dogged relentlessly about it. :P)
Amazon doesn't make the boots though, you just chose a crappy pair. Throw in an extra fifity bucks next time and get some Danners, those will last you forever
I did throw in 50 thinking they'd be good. Checked the reviews and everything. Thanks for the brand recommendation though, I'll definitely be giving those a shot next time around.
Search YouTube for reviews as well, the ones on Zappos weren't very reliable imo
Agreed. Should have definitely done that in the first place.
Still dumb I get pulled off my put to be asked for the fifth time after I already ordered though lmao.
And every big name manufacturing place I have worked provided money for safety shoes. And they were mandatory. I can only hope my team stays safe. I admire their unique style though. This generation dresses better then mine when we were their age. 😂
There are four shoes that come in my size and are approved by our site. I've bought both the ones that don't have reviews which all say that the width is a lie. They both suck (the Reeboks are so bad that I had to take upt to extend my weekend enough that I could walk again after having worn them. The New Balance are just uncomfortable, no matter what insoles I put in them.)
They have a special customer service number just for us. I don't have it anymore, but call or chat with the regular customer service number and they can give it to you.
This is so funny because I’m dealing with them RIGHT NOW. I ordered a pair back in January and I tried to make them work but they don’t. I’m ordering another pair. I’ve been wearing my hiking shoes which are more comfy and that brand is listed, but not available for the Amazon safety discount. Meh. You can keep trying until you find a pair that work for you. Even up to a year. So take advantage of it. Get some shoes for a friend if you don’t want any of the choices. And if it’s not on the approved list, you still get 10% off.
What are the steps to order and do the account stuff? I tried earlier but I guess I couldn’t log in
The process is a little convoluted, I think there's a link somewhere within AtoZ that goes to the site and logs in with your workplace credentials. Might be in resources, but you can always get in touch with a PA or HR and I'm sure they'd be glad to help.
Or talk to the safety person wandering around behind their plastic booth or cart and they will log you in to their computer so you can do your stuff. They will then log you out. If you have a problem finding them, voice that shit on the VOA board. They’ll find you.
Thanks I found out I’m not eligible
That sucks. And how? There’s requirements other than working at Amazon?
I don’t even know if just said I’m eligible and to contact the hr people
That's an ominous way to put it
I’m not eligible
Who bitches about free stuff I’ll take your code
not bitching about free stuff lmao. ordered mine, just think it's stupid that I get interrupted from picking just to get asked
Dam mine is like the opposite, they don’t tell shit . Once my manage said something over 7 months and this was recently . I got 2 pairs sense working there . I sold the carhart boots lol
Contact their support. If that fails go-to SITEHR first. Then ERC if needed.
This, they have really good support. I ordered a size too small days before Amazon changed the discount from $130 to $110, and customer service didn't charge me the difference even though Amazon had already lowered the credit amount. Super fast and easy and now I have a kickass pair of Danners
Their support was great with me. I had my new pair of boots within a weekend
Call Their support. They have a different phone number for the Zappos at work program that Amazon uses instead of their normal customer support number.
Can you tell me how to get the shoes. I tried to do the steps on the poster unsuccessfully
Thanks it said I’m not eligible
yup personal email is fine and it will ask for your Amazon ID
They will credit it for you
It’s super easy
Shoot an email to Amazon at zappos .com about getting your employee credit back on returned shoes. They don't do automatic refunds, I've had to contact them both times that I've gotten bad pairs haha
They aren’t great shoes but they are free so whatever. I sold them and bought some hokas/new balance for a bit more and they are by far better for me as a picker who stands in the same spot all day.
damn, that's smart!!!!
Leadership has metrics to meet. If you want to end the constant barrage, just order a pair and then find your nearest indigent (homeless) individual, make their day.
You can agree, disagree, or anything in between. You have metrics to meet and so does your leadership team. Be a team player.
I'm homeless and I can confirm not wanting those shoes.
They have tons of super nice brands on there, if you spend $30-$50 on top of the credit you can get some really nice name brand boots
No fucking thank you.
And they absolutely fucking suck too lmao
First pair I got gave me nerve damage in my toes. Second pair was way better but the cost was like $150 before the discount. I got in trouble for telling people to look at the reviews on the site and if there isn’t more than 10 positive reviews for the shoe on the site than don’t get it and definitely don’t get anything priced to less than $100.
I just literally busted tf out laughing 😅🤣😂
Man I tried to but they don’t know me
Did they not give you a coupon code? That sucks if that's the case. I'm sure you could reach out to your PA or HR and they'd be happy to help with that.
So I got the link and I’m not eligible
I got a pair of the New Balances, tried for one day and said fuck that, back in my NMDs, lol. Great for when I'm changing my oil and doing "play shoes" type things!
One day my AM walks up while I'm inducting and he's like "Come with me." I'm thinking, "this is it they caught me eating or doing something 'unsafe' first write-up heeeere I come"
We go in the office, he hands me a sheet of paper with the zappos address on it and then he's like "ORDER YOU ZAPPOS SHOES. NOW." Me: "what, on my phone?". Him: YES ON YOUR PHONE
Welp that did the trick as it turns out they fit me quite well and are a big improvement over what I had.
THANKS FOR THE NEW SHOES AMAZON YOU ARE THE BEST
Got my pair today and all I can say is that it’s ugly at and will be going on eBay 😂
I dont mind wearing zappos shoes, but hell are they not comfortable at all
I ordered my first pair of Zappos, wore them a few times, and haven't worn them since. I find the orthopedic shoes much better than the Hokas and the Zappo shoes I worn so far.
I'm about to start at the airport gateway for Amazon and was wondering if my steel toe boots would work or do I order the Zappos shoes day 1?
I have ordered two different pair. Reebok and New Balance. They both suck ass. Everytime they ask me, I tell them I have, and that they suck. I just bought 150 dollar pair of Hoka shoes. Best damn money I've ever spent.
Yeah, when I first got my pair of Hokas they were about $120 or so. I don't remember. But they worked for a while, but what really makes the difference is having shoe inserts. That goes for any shoe really.
First time ever defending amazon but like... they're giving you free high-quality boots.
Who could even bitch about this unless you're just that lazy that you can't visit a website for 10 mins.
Ya'll either have fucked toes or must not work much.
I ordered mine then sold them
That’s so annoying. They’re stressing this everyday and won’t stop
B...B B...B B...B B...B B...B B...B
ITT: PAs that want you to order your zappos shoes
When can we apply for a new pair of work shoes?
I did then quit right after ♡
I’m on my second pair
Exactly! Maybe I'd order them if every shoe wasn't ugly as fuck. The previous year's zappos shoes just sit in my closet.
Ordered 2 pairs and the first pair still hasn’t worn out beyond being able to wear them.
Wait until you try and return a pair (like for a simple thing such as being so tight you ended up with bloody and blistered toes after one week's wear)... it's been over a week since they got them back and there's no sign that they'll let me get another pair.
Have you reached out to amazon at Zappos .com? The credit is not automatically reapplied with a return.
That's my Saturday chore, after I recover from my Su-Th MET Megacycle week... but I feel ya'.
