    Sounds like a problem for someone who doesn't back first!

    Not quite, my area is avoiding those expensive Mercedes:

    Mostly FWD dodge promasters due to the winter months.

    And maybe a few Ford transit cargo vans:

    Did they factor in that Orion stop in the 6800 sector and ripping the truck apart like you’re looking for your car keys?

  8. Have a friend who bartends from noon to 10:00pm on Friday's at his relatives restaurant.

    Said that an Amazon driver came in (had their co. shirt on), sat at the bar and ordered some food and a draft beer on his lunch break. Driver told him it took 3hrs to find 1 certain address. Friend asked if he had more deliveries which he replied yes.

    Guess it's ok to drink beer while delivering for Amazon......

    Far from it. My center has close to 100 routes in a top 5 major metropolitan city.

    1 beer isn't going to do anything.

    Amazon is going to take over the World

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Dude their numbers so based in fantasy land it’s crazy. On a real scratch kick here lately. See we just picked out that package and got out of the car in 10 seconds you’re allotted 12. Your walk pace with no packages on a perfect surface is 8.5. You’re allotted 10. Your start car routine takes you 7 seconds you’re allotted 8.

    Man we are practically giving you 5 seconds at every stop. Why can’t you guys do this!!!!

    Except for two glaring things wrong with that picture, at least take the uniform Shirt off and change, and geez don’t be in the company vehicle in a bar.

    Previous center manager tried disciplining me, saying I was 90 seconds slow on average PER STOP. Told him if I was slow at any point it’s because of load quality and he might want to recheck his math.

    So fun when they audit a load with 20-30 less stops then normal and have every PAL restuck facing aisle and even sometimes house number low to high. Then you get done 45 minutes faster then ‘scratch’ then they want to try to act like they don’t know why you’re 60-90 minutes ‘over’ when typically only have 10-20 PAL showing.

    A drivers day comes down to load quality. Supervisors care more about scan percentage/being on right truck, could care less about being in order (or at least close to it). .

    This happens every peak season to anyone in a rental vehicle. How hard is it to put up a PSA on their websites and to local news stations to inform the general public???

    In my case the fact that it was 9:30 probably didn't help.

    What part of independent contractor don't you understand?
    People are going to order stuff from Amazon even if their drivers start running over kids in their neighborhood.

    Doesn’t matter, as soon as that driver is caught doing something he/she shouldn’t, and cameras are everywhere, they will have a PR problem for awhile ( albeit very short while).
