    Amazon doesn't do it to make them faster. They do it because they don't have to pay a robot or offer him benefits.

    Sounds a lot like working as a PT package handler. I wonder if the Teamsters will make robots pay initiation and monthly dues?

    I wonder if the robots put the bar codes over the seam so we can't scan them?

    Those robots make many mistakes. Order only twice from Amazon both times there was a problem. Didn't get my order they had to resend. The other time I received my order a day later I received stuff I never bought. They sent me someone else's order. I don't trust amazon only after two purchases from them. Lol

    You must have some of the absolute worst luck, I used to order off Amazon on a very regular basis and never once had an order late, damaged, or incorrect. And I'm sure the vast majority of their consumers can say the same.

    I also doubt it was the automations fault as humans still do the final picking and packing.

    Bad luck is all.
