Well we've started year two of Amazon.
Yesterday we had our orientation day,
got our pictures taken for our badges,
and did safety school.
All of that was the same as last year.
We got our assignments as well.
Amazon put us in picking,
with the hours being 6:30 am to 5 pm,
Sunday through Wednesday, and Thursday
will be our overtime day.
Last year our jobs were in receiving for
the most part,
and although we requested that again,
our second choice was picking.
There'll be lots of walking for sure!
Today we started learning how to pick!
In a nutshell, we are putting product
into yellow totes.
The handheld scanner tells us where
to go in the building,
and what bin the product is in.
At some point the scanner tells us to
put the tote onto the conveyor,
then move on to the next one.
It's an easy process, but as usual it
was very hot in there, I sweat off every
bottle of water I drank today :-)
We're only working 5 hour days this week,
to get used to being on our feet on concrete.
I feel pretty good after my first day,
and so does George.
Two more days left,
then next week starts our long 10 hour days!
