By reading all of your posts, we saw that everyone had
different Thanksgiving meals.
Some with family, some in warm climates, some in cold.
We did have to work on Thanksgiving day,
but Amazon allowed the day shift to leave at 1:30.
It worked out nice, as we were able to come home,
shower and relax a bit before going out to dinner.
We met up with two other RV-dreamers,
David & Fran, and Pat & Diana,
who we met at the last rally in North Carolina.
The food at Creekside Restaurant was very good,
with all the traditional Thanksgiving fare.
Things are getting pretty busy at Amazon now.
Of course black Friday was crazy,
with a lot of shipments going out the door.
'Cyber Monday' looks to be just as crazy.
We've certainly learned to be flexible working here.
When we started, we have been in the receiving department.
A couple of days ago,
they took a bunch of us upstairs to the 'Single Toys' department.
These are totes full of single items (not necessarily toys)
that need to be scanned, then put in the appropriate size box.
From there a barcode (SPOO) is put on the box, taped up,
then sent down the conveyor where the SPOO is read.
That barcode has all the customer's information on it,
so that a machine puts the shipping label on the box.
Most people that work here never see the customer's information.
Yesterday, much to our surprise, they called our name over the loud speaker.
We came up to the desk, and they said they were taking us over to gift wrap!
I thought that we were doing good in single toys.
I even earned a Kroger gift card for being the fastest workamper one day :-)
Gift wrap is well, not much fun :-)
You'd think it would be nice to wrap gifts for people...NOT!
I won't go in to the whole process,
but suffice to say it's hot upstairs,
and there are no fans there.
Supposedly we'll be there the final 3 weeks.
I feel like we've been banished to Siberia, or maybe the desert :-)
So that's been our week.
Today is our only day off, so we're getting laundry and grocery shopping done.
I'd better get to it!
