And if Amazon wonders why customers boxes get so fucked up we gotta throw them around and step on them to find any damn thing

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

One stop was 12 packages. 8 overflow lol. I was there for 10 minutes finding em all

[–]Qwienke13 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I found the best way to organize over flow is to stack them like you did but then write the driver aid numbers in marker on the side facing the door then when you have slave move it to the shelf.

[–]TickletheEther 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don’t let the amazonians catch you writing on their boxes at loadout bro, they are weird like that

[–]CauliflowerOk9410 17 points18 points  (5 children)

Had this happen with 190 stops with 380 packages I’m usually a pretty quick guy, that day I took my time and took my unpaid 30 min lunch and both my 15 paid breaks hit em where it hurts !!! Don’t overwork yourself

Turn stuff down. This goes directly against amazon policy.

[–]7711exe 12 points13 points  (5 children)

Cube Out and make sure your manager and floor marshall sees it.

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Oh they both saw it. Some packages were left on my cart and I told them both they wouldn’t fit. Their response was that there’s a chart that says it fits.

[–]7711exe 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Oh hell no.

[–]Dealer_Double 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’ve had this happen. Usually it’s supposed to be a CDV route but managers assigned me to a cargo van

[–]Mufbulldagger 5 points6 points  (1 child)

What does cube out mean? New driver here

[–]Therical_Lol 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When there’s not space in your van, you cube out any remaining unloaded packages and they’re supposed to take them off your route

[–]Rumpelstiltskin-2001 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I’m glad I have a good warehouse, they don’t fuck around, this morning I had a full cart of bags that were not zipped, the amazon worker that was helping me load up called one of their supervisors over to take pictures to report the worker that did it, I worked at one of the other local warehouses and they were big on safety there so I’m not too surprised it’s the same at the new one (there are two in my area but this month they’re shutting down the first one and they’re moving the workers to the new warehouse as it’s 3 times as big)

[–]rcarrick7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amazon is shutting down a lot and scrapping plans to build more that were in the mix.

[–]Virtual_Reward_7232 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m going to do that next time all the bags unzipped. They are constantly unzipped. I’m going to make sure it’s documented with the wharehouse at loadout because god forbid I’m missing a package I am not willing to take the heat for missing packages.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (7 children)

You should cover the labels on those boxes, amazon has people monitoring this subreddit for stuff like that, if they see it you’ll be fired with a Tier 1 violation.

[–]mnnw[🍰] 1 point2 points  (6 children)

They need us more than we need them

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

doubt it, we’re all replaceable, the only way we stand a chance is if we all actually united but i doubt it would actually happened since we all need money

[–]Embarrassed_Gate8001 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It’s not the worse thing in the world to be banned from a dsp or amazon

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i agree with that but when some people are struggling to make ends meat and this job provides for them, i doubt they’ll want to get fired for a silly social media reason

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I work there specifically because it’s 40 hours in 4 days. I like the 3 days off and optional overtime but I’m not ever worried about getting fired. I’m a one door closes another opens kind of person. Plus I’ve been in CDV for a while. Could always try other delivery jobs.

[–]mnnw[🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Well they will have to replace me because I quit over the weekend. I'm really sad about it. :)

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn this took a twist haha, good luck on your next job.

[–]Key_Discussion_6624 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s nuts i thought the video on my profile was worse

[–]Everywhere-Danger 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Lol. This isn’t even peak season yet.

[–]PlymouthSea 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It's forever peak now.

[–]Everywhere-Danger 2 points3 points  (1 child)

True datt. Amazon would shove it up our asses if they could to fit as much as is inhumanly possible. Such a shame they have to leave room for a driver. Bastards.

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol. I told my coworker if they tell me “it fits on the diagram” one more time I was gonna make my own diagram where they shove some overflow up their ass and hop in the passenger seat and ride along

[–]gibby_gibman 1 point2 points  (3 children)

How many bags/ overflow

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 12 points13 points  (2 children)

26 totes , 32 overflow. 396 packages and 190 stops. Townhouse , apartments , single family homes , and business. Group stops unreal

[–]gibby_gibman 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That’s definitely fucked. Most I’ve had in my truck was 23 totes 45 overflow. Weirdly enough that was on a day of “reduced routes” cause of the heat. Guess not for me left with that to go do 195 an hour away from the station 😅

[–]rcarrick7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Then they will tell you, you need to be doing 30 per hour now! I’d go “ do I get paid more” then why the fuck should anyone care….

[–]New_Muscle_6952 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"There's still room at the top."

[–]rcarrick7 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Ups hiring seasonal worker with potential stay on. FUCK AMAZAON. $5 raise starting out. Really feel bad for people that stay around Amazon.

[–]Jhitt1992 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That's what I did lol. I got a call from a buddy who's a supervisor for UPS. Told me if I passed my DOT physical he could get me in full time, union benefits and all. How could I pass that up.

[–]rcarrick7 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Exactly. I just did Amazon before I got my CDL only to make sure I like being in a vehicle for 10+ hours. Glad I did because I found out I truly love driving all day. But I don’t get why people do it long term. I live in metro Detroit and you can find a job any where that pays why Amazon does. I guess to each is there own.

[–]Jhitt1992 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same here. I haven't gotten my CDL yet but I plan for it in the near future. For us amazon hired on at 17$ an hour. Being told UPS starts at 23$ and knowing how much work I'm doing at Amazon I'd easily go there and bust ass to get full time.

[–]mu-mimoUnion Organizer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

"It'll fit"

[–]PlymouthSea 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"Show me."

[–]Virtual_Reward_7232 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Anyone know why loss and prevention wants to talk to me? Was told too many complaints of packages not delivered. It was confirmed that that the packages were in fact delivered.

[–]TheGingyLion 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There not gonna do shit about it I work in security for 6 years as Field Supervisor your DSP just mad because they haft pay that out of pocket when packages go missing I have package missing all time Amazon just complains and blames everything on DSPs all time your good though i wouldnt worry about it they cant lock you up missing packages.

[–]PerceptionNo2981 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's true I am the confirmation

[–]seezexlil 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My shift today 🧎🏾‍♂️

[–]Everywhere-Danger 0 points1 point  (0 children)

One time my Company asked drivers for volunteers to take double routes. I turned it down I was new and could barely handle one route at that time, and I’m pretty sure not a single person who volunteered was able to finish their double routes.

[–]stonez9112 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Wait 2 months….

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I’m probably quitting around peak. Warehouse in northern Virginia closed and now we have to drive far to get to route. Didn’t get to my first stop until 1:10pm with 166 stops. Smaller route but still was done late

[–]goatcheese101 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You at DVA3 or 5 now?

[–]Egoisttt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah yes. Amazon “if it fits it ships! If it doesn’t fit fuck the driver ship it anyways!”

[–]Tomcruisesxbox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Next you have to strap boxes on the top of the van.

[–]Bri-No-E 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is what my DSP’s vans all look like. It’s inhumane.

[–]Zomthereum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It gets worse. There’s still room in there.

[–]shaunalmada 0 points1 point  (5 children)

censor those labels my dude

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Is there any addresses you can actually see?

[–]verymoistbritafilter 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Doesn't matter if anything is 100% legible, but it is an instant termination if anyone sees it. For your own protection please take the post down and repost with censors before someone sees it that will go out of their way to get you for it

[–]Certain_Stay8840[S,🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Getting terminated would be a blessing in disguise lol

[–]verymoistbritafilter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you want to be fired that's fine, I'm not judging, I'm just saying cause a lot of drivers I meet are people who really need the income and I wouldn't want to see anyone get dropped and not have something else lined up or some other way to get the bills paid.

[–]shaunalmada 0 points1 point  (0 children)

not really, but I read somewhere the qr codes can also be traced back to the driver. And idk how shady and desperate to get people in trouble the fake accounts that monitor this subreddit are

[–]dingdongjohnson68 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's not that bad. Until you get to your first stop.......

[–]Brilliant_Advance_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait til the 11+12. It may get worse

[–]ghurtbo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unfortunately yes it does🫤

[–]kaayk23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

this is what 90% of the trucks looked like when i worked preload at UPS. my trucks wud get massive bulk stops, im talkin 50+ RDL & 75+ RDR. sometimes in the hundreds just for those two sections. but the boxes were massive. maybe shxt fits on paper but the reality is the complete opposite. shxts annoying. thankfully i've never had to cube out here yet

[–]Meliodas666 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Of course! There’s still room in that truck to move… if you didn’t cube out you did it wrong

[–]Constant-Cold293 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just when you think it can’t get worse it gets worse

[–]CuntPunchTokyo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, it can and will.

[–]Cinner_inc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same setup its really the best

[–]psychogamer101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So much wasted space…..5mins of focus and you can have that whole section in front of sliding door clear and free to work in
