Top floor is finished, but not the bottom floor. I’m working as fast as I can...
Amazon is about to kick in it’s new air shipping wing. Saw two prime jets in a metro airport next to the new trans ship facility I’m trying to get done with this week. Then it’s off to troutdale or utah.
Only if you are desperate for a job
Just remember that the job you turn your nose up at is someone else’s dream job or at least helps bring home the bacon.
Are you really one of the builders?
One of many. It’s a living.
If you need a job - take it. But Amazon grinds their people into the ground. It is almost impossible to pack orders against their time standards. The hourly work force turnover is high. People walk off the job at lunch and never return.
