How Amazon Delivers On One-Day Shipping

Prime Day, Amazon's biggest shopping event, is here, and now one-day shipping is the norm for tens of millions of items available during Amazon's Prime Day event, which runs from July 15 to July 16. To succeed at this rapid delivery, Amazon spends tens of billions of dollars every year and employs 250,000 workers in its U.S. warehouses.

  • I applied to amazon in the past and I’m glad I didn’t go through with it past orientation. They watch every move you make and the bathroom break thing seems absolutely ridiculous to me. People peeing in bottles?! I’m assuming it’s mostly guys who are doing this because women we can barely aim a straight shot in a freakin bottle 😂

  • Three years ago my dog ran out the front door when I opened it to retrieve my package. The nice fellow in his own car (a woman was with him) ran down the street to catch my dog for me. I was so grateful to him! That was above and beyond customer service.

  • Looking at this video and I'm a prime member I'm very unhappy how they Treat The people that work for them . I don't need my packages in 1or 2 days if Someone can't go to the restroom. I'm rethinking about my prime membership with them.

  • Amazon's move into 1 day shipping is just a rabbit hole. And a vicious cycle. Sure, amazon is able to drive down costs and maybe even make delivery time lower. But what about other competitors? In USA mega corporations appear because of government ignorance. Eventually business consolidation and too big to fail companies will run the politics of USA instead.

  • The process is cool but for the most part I would still rather get it from a physical store if I can. 1 day shipping is still not instant like it is when you go to a physical store. Plus, Prime is more money than I want to spend because I don't buy enough stuff from Amazon for it to make sense. Then the question is if you return an item, is that 1 day shipping too and then if you're getting a different size in a shirt or something, is that 1 other day back to your house? With working conditions, it sounds what I hear about Walmart or kinda like my experience at IRS. At IRS, you have to keep up with crazy metrics. So I got another job thankfully. We all have the options of other jobs. It's not always easy when you're starting out but you definately have other options available out there.

  • It frustrates me every single time it says free. Even the newslady said "rolls out free shipping". It's so stupid, shipping is not free, you have to pay for it one way or another. All that matters is whether or not they tell you "+$7" or whether they just include the $7 within the price itself.

  • Yes Dave Clark, those wrist bands are definitely so big brother can track productivity. I wouldn't be surprised if you're tracking heart rate and/or blood pressure as well, so you can fire an employee before they need to take a medical or disability leave on amazon's dime.
