    That amazon DC on the I20 frontage road in Dallas is a dystopian nightmare. One of the worst places to deliver to. Glad I have only had to go there once.

    Takes hours just to get through the security line. No napping, have to be ready to move your truck forward at a moments notice.

    Buster Brown drivers do, but the make 3 times as much with full bennies.
    If you can’t Handel the job just quit, don’t just bail.

    I don't agree with how he did it, but he sure as hell got a lot of traction doing it. It seems he got a 10 hour a day job then it turned out to be a 13 hour a day job.

    No OT, either. No bennies. Permanent 1099, basically. It's not a good job, the metrics and data apps are ####ing awful, and 9/10 of the people calling him a ##### would quit after their second day.
     
    gentleroger, kylefitzy and TokyoJoe Thank this.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but those van drivers are not owned by Amazon, at least not directly. I have a friend who’s an “Amazon driver” and told me they work through a third-party in Dallas.

    Oh, and that buttercup needs to toughen up.
