    From what I've been reading on them you are "Watched" at all times and don't dare go to the restroom.
    No thanks.

    They've had a distribution center in Durham off TW Alexander by Miami Blvd for a few years already. Nothing inside looks hi tech like the stuff in the news.

    Must be some crazy hours or a few highly paid mangers. Most of the "working" jobs are $10.50 - $13 an hour from what I've been told by people that actually work at the one in Durham.

    It's a warehouse, not HQ2. "These are not the high paying tech jobs you are looking for. Move along, Move along."

    Amazon screens out anyone with any health issues that could mean having to use the bathroom more than once per shift.

    You’ll be handling at least two packages a day for my home. Please handle with care.

    I thought I was the only person like that in existence; I've sure as hell never worked with anybody else that hit up the commode once per shift.

    We really don't need this...not for a area already that's like trying to suck a golf ball through a garden hose. The state will takes 10 years to widen lanes and make roads better for the amount of cars that travel the area..then they would be just behind 10 years.


    Funny story....our new rebar shop the workers want A/C in the bathroom. Dad "nope because you guys would take 6 dumps a day, never met anyone that was full of that much s***" hahaha
