'Some Amazon warehouse staff have felt suicidal since joining the company, according to a survey.
In a poll of 100 workers, more than half said they suffered from depression and eight people said they'd thought about killing themselves.
The survey was carried out by Organise, which campaigns for employment unions.
James Bloodworth, who worked ten-hour shifts at a warehouse in Rugeley, Staffordshire, claimed staff were peeing in bottles because they were scared of getting in trouble for taking toilet breaks.
The Rugeley warehouse measures 700,000 sq ft and some of the 1,200 workers face a ten minute, quarter-of-a-mile walk to two toilets on the ground floor of the four-storey building.
He said: 'For those of us who worked on the top floor, the closest toilets were down four flights of stairs.'
Mr Bloodworth, who worked as a picker selecting goods for dispatch, walked ten miles a day in the job to research for a book on low-wage Britain.
He revealed workers were continually monitored for time wasting by supervisors and claimed the strictness was what caused the 'toilet bottle' system.'
