Amazon Fresh layoffs workers at its grocery stores

According to a published report from USA Today, the “zone lead” role, which was a store-level managerial position with management and employee training responsibilities in specific divisions, was eliminated by Amazon Fresh.

According to the Washington Post, hundreds of people will lose their jobs as a result of the Amazon Fresh layoffs on Tuesday.

A severance payout or alternative corporate roles have been made available to employees.

We’ve chosen to alter our in-store staffing and operations strategy to better serve our customers and teams, says Jessica Martin, an Amazon spokesperson.

Amazon Fresh layoffs are a move to take on the supermarket industry

According to a published report from INSIDER, in 2007, the business introduced the Fresh brand as an online delivery service.

The business behemoth then acquired Whole Foods Market in 2017 for $13.7 billion. Additionally, the business debuted its Go brand of automated grocery stores.

Earlier this year, Amazon decided to close Fresh and Go facilities.

According to their website, there are 44 Fresh locations across eight states and Washington, D.C.

The head of finance at Amazon, Brian Olsavsky, stated during the company’s fourth-quarter conference call that “we’re constantly refining our store formats to identify ones that will connect with consumers, will build our food brand, and will enable us to scale significantly over time.”

In line with the Amazon Fresh layoffs, the company also announced the termination of 18,000 employees in January, blaming expenses and the uncertain economy.

In 2022, the business also eliminated the Amazon Pop-Up, Amazon 4 Star, and Amazon Books stores by closing non-grocery retail sites.
