Grammar Giggle – Amazon Need More Staff

I’ve seen a couple of different ads like this for Amazon. What I think Amazon REALLY needs is someone to proofread anything with their name on it! Hello {knocks on monitor glass}, I’m over here! Amazon, the company, is treated as a singular unit, so it should be “Amazon NeedS More Staff” as in “it [Amazon] needs” not “they need.”
