    Hey y'all, I just got hired on as a package handler. Went through day one orientation today. Pretty excited to be part of the company. Super excited to get out of Amazon's warehouse, that place is a nightmare.

    Any tips for a newbie preloader, or for what it takes to become a driver one day?

    Are you trained as an Amazon employee to put the bar code right over the crease in the box?

    Wonder if they do that as kind of a security seal.

    Just remember that it is only a job. Management is not your friend.

    If the goal is to become a driver, you'll figure out how long it'll take you to get there pretty soon. As far as tips, since you sound like you plan on staying:

    Join the union. Find out who your steward is ASAP.
