    How much has the volume increased since just AFTER Amazon was pulled in your center?

    We are nearly back to what we were previously. It's absurd. 30 cars stuffed into a building designed for 18.

    I don't quite get the question. After Amazon was pulled from our center? At my hub we've always had a ton of Amazon volume. Nothing has changed.

    I will say that those Amazon drivers seem even sketchier than the Ontrac guys. Plenty of complaints from customers about misdelivered packages, one customer even caught the Amazon driver stealing items from out of his package right on camera.

    Sounds like the OP has an Amazon distribution center close to his center.

    Eighteen? That's not a center, that's a parking slot!

    I saw awhile back that an amazon driver got caught on camera IN A BUSINESS stealing a wallet. What an idiot

    They cut areas just enough. That the don't. Create more full time areas. Juggle work everyday

    Hey all companies have them.


    We had an off the street hire steal a FedEx box off a lady's porch while the lady watched. Not discreet either. Huge piece of furniture.

    They always tell us some high number then they say "we had to cut routes due to lack of drivers" when really it is "we had to cut routes because we didnt hire enough people like always"
