    I'm a shareholder. I fully understand.

    Plus 4 year progression should more than offset a little extra seasonal hiring.

    Or Amazon made great progress in they're own package delivery service. Is the reason why UPSers had a much easier peak.

    Volume was through the roof so it pretty obviously had to do with more employees and capacity increases.

    Plus last I checked. Amazon is Not the only game in town either.

    I am positive with fuel prices down they broke even. Atleast. Huge volume increase.

    High volume loaded in less hours and 90° building. And it's alllll bulk....lol. But I'm used to it.

    Best peak since I've been driving. Had some big days but they were manageable. Today would have been a cake walk if it were not for the late air at being shuttled to us after 2.

    This is how peak should always be. It's greed that makes it hell.
