    Well, it was a busy day for an Amazon Delivery Associate in Cleveland, OH: area. He decided to drop off a guys kitchen timer and then come back an retrieve it. Little did he know that the guy had a doorknob camera that got the whole thing.
    Amazon stated that they run checks on their new people - well I guess that they aren't that great of a check. Guess they are hiring some "quality" people.

    Don't go turning into Rod and talking trash about the new gen of drivers now that you're retired.

    I hate to say it but I have to keep it real. It’s the part timers I’m talking about

    The 19 year old desperate looking kids I see trying to run an Amazon prime route around town in unmarked white or yellow rental vans are clearly completely untrained and serious dangers on the road. They go the wrong way down one way streets, back down the middle of busy roads 150 feet, drive on the shoulder, drive through the turn lane, make illegal turns, and are just a total mess.

    No wonder Amazon isn't branding those vans. Do they really want people associating their underpaid contractors with their brand?

    The amazon brand is pretty much an online Walmart... cheap Chinese crap they can sell at a small profit and do that a billion times...their brand has been watered down .... i rarely buy anything from them any more...

    Vehicles tagged with a 10,000 plate are not considered CMV, and do not have to abide by DOT laws.
