    People rarely like to be told they are being played for a sucker...

    Let him go broke.

    Can't say you all didn't warn him.

    I'll take that as a, "no". It would behoove you to use the search function on this site. Could save you from a costly mistake.

    @rch10007
    These guys have been at this business for a long time. As a result they loose touch with newbie reality! Please check back in 1-6 months and let us know how Amazon is working for you? I for one, want to hear from anyone with first hand experience.
    Please surf this forum. As already noted, there are almost countless threads and posts on this very subject
     
    Trokera65 and stuckinthemud Thank this.

    I started driving in 1995 after serving my time in the Army. I stepped out of the truck in 2009 to raise my children while their mother was still active duty. I'm nowhere close to a noob. I have dispatched 19 O/O's at one time. I'm currently activating my authority that I established in 2007. I am researching and looking at the entire playing field before I jump back in. Amazon is a completely new beast, as are many other players in the market.

    If one of you have specific first hand information, please share. The last thing any of need is for some know-it-all jerk to throw out one sentence into a reply condemning me and my entire operation or assuming I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Here's an idea: If you have helpful info, share. If you want to be a ######## know-it-all armchair cowboy, don't share.

    My question was simple, does anyone have FIRSTHAND knowledge of running for Amazon and their workers comp requirement. I didn't ask if you think it's a good idea or if I'd lose money.

    If you've read this far and want to say something else that's not pertinent to the question, don't.
