    I hear you, I’ve done a lot of grocery warehouses but not Amazon. You would think Amazon would be quick in and out but I guess they’re just like Walmart, too many trucks delivering at the same time.

    It isn't too many trucks at one time. They simply take that long.

    I am thinking of the Amazon in Joliet, IL.
    Get there on time and they send you to a staging area where you will wait for a couple hours, or more.
    Once you get a dock you will wait another several hours for them to unload it.
    6-8 hours in to out, always, from my experience there.

    It is the same for everyone, and the reason why I will find any reason not to deliver there.
    As should every other driver out here, until they can clean up their act.

    If places like that can not schedule properly, and have the people to do the job correctly, they should be shunned and banned by the drivers.

    If you cared to elaborate and be helpful, it would be appreciated, but If you have nothing constructive to add, just go elsewhere.
     
    Northern Nomad Thanks this.

    Reefer is torture!

    Waiting all the time forever for everything!
    Don't forget the lumpers and waiting for them to tell you how much to pay them.

    After waiting forever for everything good luck finding parking at 2am when you're out of hours and customer kicks you off their yard.
     
    Kyle G. and jgtrucking Thank this.

    Comment was constructive. If you wont / can't do your own research on a crap company, then again...good luck.
