Amazon’s Elevators

By Deane Barker on July 2, 2003 Tech Jobs: Ted’s Blog: I love whiteboards. Given this, I want to go work at Amazon:

“The elevators here are cool. They’ve got whiteboards on all the walls. It means they act as fairly anonymous forums for people to converse. Sometimes there are stick figures or comments about the upcoming weekend. Of course, there are also complaints- people complaining about not being paid enough or working too hard. More often, they are plays on words, fill-in-the-blanks, or comments about popular news items.”

Whiteboards on elevators? Man, that’s living.



  1. Funny, Ted wrote for four days and hasn’t been heard from since. I’m betting he took down the credit card server.

  2. Maybe it was the bit about Amazon workers complaining about their pay and hours. Publish that and you’re history.
