I don't buy much online but I found that most of what I got from Amazon was coming from one company.
Looked up their site and I can buy direct from them for the same price so I've dumped Amazon.

Someone still has to deliver it, though.

I've never seen an Amazon driver.
My Amazon orders arrive by UPS, fed ex or usps.

Do they have paid drivers in the cities?


This is a story from the UK. But in the US there are third party vendors in the US. One took a deuce on the curb in front of a Sacramento Home.

I wake up at 02:40 every morning and I'm back at home about 18:15. I barely take a 2 day vacations, never a whole week. Using most of my personal days and vacations when I get sick or have something to do. I've been doing this for last 13 years.

Those drivers wouldn't last a week in my job.


I thought only german and japanese people are like this...

No own life, just living for working, to make others rich. And very proud of it...

Or are you a millionaire or billionaire yet? Looking at the lifetime you spended the last 13 years, you should be!

There are companies that force their employees to work insane schedules.

One word solves this. Unions (and collective bargaining).

The State of Nevada will grant unemployment benefits for anyone who quits Amazon because it is considered a hostile working environment.

I worked for the Amazon fulfillment center some time ago. It is as #ty as it sounds.

What???

Do you have a source? ( I looked and didn't come up with any)

If true, that would be horrifically expensive for Amazon.

They won't take your job, but the competition for your job will be fierce and pay/benefits will nose dive.

Automation can be wonderful or horrible.

The only job one day will be in care. Tbh if you look at the future predictions we will need a massive workforce looking after the old so it may work out okay.

No everyone gets it. But many do. Most of the floor employees get hired via temp agencies. But those who get hired on or are direct hires don't last long and usually quit. Those are the people who usually quit due to hostile work environments.

There is no source. This is just common practice in Northern Nevada for Amazon employees. Their turnover rate is INSANE. And yes, it is expensive, but Amazon doesn't care.

False I deliver amazon everyday and we can take a comfort stop every 2 minutes if we wish, but I deliver for the USPS so it might be different.

The story says third party delivery, not majors. So yes it is different.

Do you belong to a union and have govt benefits?

Semi drivers aren't any different lots of plastic bottles along the road full of p iss..



Yes I believe they are colloquially known as "truck bombs" Seems like they are more prevalent in the west and northwest. Any cross country driver knows how important a good bomber container can be" just poor it out don't throw it out."

Maybe it's the British politeness in me but when it comes to delivery drivers coming to my door we offer them a cold drink (if it's the summer and tend to freeze juice) the toilet (the downstairs one it's for guests and visiting family. No one else gets to plant their cheeks on my toilet) and on the rare occasion a free parking place (we tend to have a lot of deliveries down our way) - Most take up the drink and toilet but I've had a few that have looked at me like I'm a serial killer from a horror film "Come, use my bathroom and have yourself a fine drink of this frozen coloured liquid" hmm I think I can see why.

I didn't know there were Amazon drivers. I order from them all the time.
My packages come via UPS, USPS, FEDEX these are all union drivers. They are not going without breaks.
