  • Published on Sep 30, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • 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. The process is an incredible challenge, and Amazon has faced criticism about working conditions at every step of the process. Watch the video to see what happens when you buy a Prime-eligible item on Amazon.com.

    I don't use Prime and I'm more than happy to pay extra for delivery as well as waiting a few extra days for my package to arrive as I care about the drivers safety and well being. Thank you to all the delivery drivers delivering throughout the pandemic.

    • Phuong Nguyen
      Phuong Nguyen Year ago +40

      I don’t think that’s how it works. The driver will deliver so and so amount of products a day regardless of if you buy prime or not.

    • MobLaw
      MobLaw Year ago +4

      But this is how they get you prime is 14 bucks for the month depending on how many orders you get you can end up paying more than that in shipping so it's cheaper just to get prime

    Shipping times may have shortened but for me at least, my merchandise options are being SEVERELY limited. Amazon is obviously limiting my options so they can achieve one-day delivery but I'd rather have more product choices.

    Also for others confused about the 300 trucks number because you see them way more often than that, you're right. Amazon has a program, much like with their delivery vans, where independent truck drivers or small companies can pull Amazon trailers for good rates. There are many thousands of Amazon trailers being pulled by independent contractors, but only 300 are pulled by their own trucks.

  • Cameron C.

    Not sure how much this helps the drivers, but not only do I always take those Mini-surveys and leave 10/10 positive reviews, but I also try my absolute best to bundle all of my orders together so that they all arrive on the same day/time. I have a lot of respect for the drivers, and after seeing how much stress they are under while on the job? I'll always try to return the love and so I hope these small gestures can go a long way! :)

    I dont live in a big city so I'm used to getting my packages in a few days to a week. However, the last order I placed was mailed in several different packages and took from 3 days to a week & a half. I've noticed for me, that the ones they ship through the Post Office are usually the ones that take the longest to arrive. I had 2 different packages from that last order go through the P.O. One pkg took a week & a half & went from a suburb of Mpls., up to my town, transferred to another carrier and then shipped back down to a different suburb of Mpls. Called to talk to someone (Took forever to finally get ahold of a live person!) and was finally told it was mistakenly marked as being in my town but it actually was not. (Never got an explanation where it really was.) Then, the second pkg was finally shipped and again came up to my town and again, transferred to another carrier and shipped off to a different area north of me. (Do you think it was a mistake again?) That pkg took about a week to get to me. I don't know if they're out to get me or if someone at the Post Office here is an idiot. Whatever, it's almost impossible to complain about them through Amazon. They are distancing themselves farther & farther away from their customers!

    In my experience, their shipping is getting slower and slower for Prime customers. I have received one-day or same-day delivery on about half a dozen times in the last five years. Let’s hope that rollout picks up.

    Am I the only person who thinks it's pretty scary just how difficult it's going to be small business not to mention the livelihood of millions of not just the ones who work in the company but every one .I think at some point of time there would be a need for a law controlling the growth of companies and technology for human survival and the chance to grow for other people.

    It's good to support local businesses, or even other non local businesses directly without going through Amazon. Otherwise Amazon will end up controlling everything. And they aren't ethical.

  • David Savian
    David Savian 2 years ago +33

    Amazon should also implement a system that sends you an alert IMMEDIATELY to your phone through TEXT not email alerting you that your package is about to be delivered so that you can then have time to pick up your package before it is stolen from your door after Amazon Prime just puts your package outside your door usually on the ground. There are actual people that are now following Amazon Prime vans and they wait for the Amazon van to drive away and they walk up to the customer doors and take their packages. They pick different neighborhoods to do this at different times of the month so that the customers and Amazon vans are always different. So, alerts to customer PHONES should be a part of Amazon practices. But, instead we have the mess that we have now. Sad when a company spends so much to build their empire up and then forgets about the most important people holding them up which are the customers and their employees that are over worked.

      The app sends you a notification when your package is 10 stops away and you can even track where the truck is on a map. Once delivered you should get another notification and they show a picture of the package at the door.

      @Mikask How? How does it make a difference regarding money if it's one days or three days?

    • Mikask
      Mikask Year ago +8

      @Loathes politics it’s psychology. Online shop is like being in a huge supermarket, you’ll buy things you don’t need. The one day shipping gives instant gratification, so it amplifies consumerism.
      It might not work on you, but it works on a lot of other people. It feeds on society’s over-consumerism.

    The asking competitors to raise their wages too is a good strategy: Either they don't and Amazon will look better or they do and Amazon won't have to deal with higher wages than their competitors which would put them at a disadvantage

    Just because Amazon workers are “able” to sustain questionable high pace working conditions does not mean that they should be expected to do so. There are a lot of things in life that people are able to do but shouldn’t.

      I know right? They needed to talk more about workers peeing in bottles so they do not have to walk the million square feet warehouse, up 4 flights or stairs through a security check point to reach the bathrooms. (then reverse it) They get 10 minutes to do this or they are fired. So they pee in bottles! WTF?!?

    I used to deliver for amazon if I remember right they would pay 47 dollars for 2 hours of delivery think I had 40- 70 packages definitely took more than 4 hours and still had to work over without the overtime. It also felt weird not having like a uniform and using your own car so people don’t know why you have their package however I was always interested how amazon get things sorted and packaged and shipped

    It's always nice when other companies beat amazons time. I have ordered many items from other tech sites on 3-5 day shipping only to be surprised when it came the next day. Microsoft is a good example of this. I don't now the reason but since amazon all deliveries on all sites seem to be quicker. well except from china via Bang Good as that takes 2 weeks - 4 months.

  • David Savian
    David Savian 2 years ago +4

    All Amazon cares about is keeping the stock holders happy. That's it. Second to them are the customers. Third are the employees. The rate in which humans are forced to work in these Amazon warehouses is uncontionable. Bezos only thinks about profits while forcing his employees to stand for upwards of 10 hours per day while running back and forth in a giant warehouse. If he created a system whereby the workers could sit down and move while sitting down for their entire shifts while those moving seats were powered by solar energy to save on electric cost in all his warehouses, that could bring relief to the amount of energy spent by his employees and that would give Amazon workers MORE energy to be MORE efficient, more healthy and happier less disgruntled employees on their jobs. But, Bezos has no concept of that possiblility. It's sad to see that Amazon workers are treated like black slaves were treated in horrible working conditions 150 years ago. Bezos just doesn't want to see that horror. Lets see Bezos work as a warehouse employee nonstop for 6 months standing up and unable to take a bathroom break that would cut into his job performance at one of the Amazon warehouses. Lets see how happy he will be at the end of those six months. He is too comfortable with his billions to have the guts to attempt that !!!!!!!

    I have an Amazon fulfillment center directly across the street from where I work. I still remember seeing the same day delivery option for the first time on an order I placed. I was like... NO WAY.

    thomas aquinas 2 years ago +5

    Wow, we are really spoiled. I ordered on line and they apologized for delivery running a few hours late. I didn't care. People pay a fortune, at times, for fast delivery, though the need is not there. I ordered from Wal-Mart once, and part of the order was hand delivered to my door 90 minutes later. That was freaky. Speed costs money, generally, and we waste a lot on air travel for things that aren't perishable or that urgent...

    I worked at a Prime Shipping warehouse years ago, you know how we got you your items in 1 day? We would open a full truck of boxes and Instead of grabbing each box individually and putting it on the conveyor carefully we would topple the stack over so it crashed onto the conveyor and then we just grab the ones on the ground and toss them on too. The supervisors did not care and neither did we since the only punishment we would receive was for not being fast enough.
    yes there graphics cards and motherboards that would just be tossed across the room in order to get it to you on time. It was disgusting.

    Am on the island of Hawaii and have been ordering thru Prime regularly for 20 years. I have never been able to get a package delivered here in 1,2, or 3 days! The average is more like 6-10 days. Ship rates for heavier items are hard to beat so there's still a benefit, however lightning speed isn't one of them. Glad Amazon is at least paying $15 hr, however there are very, very few places where one can live well on it? "Survive" is more what comes to mind when I hear that number as a wage to live on.

      I think they still will.
      Young people might get many things delivered (like my roommate gets most of her monthly groceries delivered from the local Save On Food grocery store) but most people won't buy everything from Amazon or thru delivery companies. I think even in the future most people will still mostly just walk/bike/drive to a store like normal people to save money buying groceries in bulk and/or to get some fresh air and hang out with friends and family.
      Like a Best Buy near the city I live in in Vancouver, Canada is now less than half the size of the old one. Its a nice place to window shop thru and to occasionally buy stuff while you hang out with friends.
      Or those young people won't shell out for Prime. I'm perfectly content to wait between 2 days to a week to get an item. I rarely buy things. Usually its just esoteric things like a cell phone power cord or an HDMI cable. Or expensive purchases like a new cellphone. In those cases if I want something delivered faster I'll just pay $5 more for faster delivery for that one item. I suspect many people are similar.

    I pay for Prime specifically for the 2-day shipping. It's never happened. Just ordered a product for same day delivery, 4-11 PM, Friday. As soon as I paid the order, I checked "my orders" & it's immediately says Sunday. That's 2-day on a same day promise. BTW, live-in New Castle county, DE. Closest Amazon is 15 min away; they just opened 2 hugh facilities, each 15 min away in different directions. I bet it doesn't come Sunday. Also my grandson works for Amazon in S. CA, had a gift sent directly to him, had 3 shipping options, instead of 2-day, I chose the 17th so he wouldn't get it too early. Now I worry will he get it by Xmas?

That said, we should be aiming to allow for bathroom breaks and normal 30 minute breaks. They also need to listen to their employees when they say they cannot work faster, there is a limit to the human body.

    Deliveries are given in-hand or we also have option to leave it with neighbour.
    If we aren't home, they take it back to the nearest delivery station and attempt a delivery next day (also many times contacts us for suitable time).
    Unlike western nation where the delivery guys just leave the package in open at the door to be stolen easily.

    I used to buy almost anything and everything off Amazon because of how incredibly convenient the two-day shipping was, and how amazing the one-day shipping was for anything over $35. It seems that they’ve gotten rid of it, and their fastest shipping has been 4-5 business days for the last year. Common businesses are now the ones doing one-day deliveries and curbside pick up, so I don’t know how much longer Amazon will last.

He walks down the street with his new headphones as the blimp flies up ready to be called again like hundreds of others throughout the day. This is the way people order clothing, tools, and even sandwiches for lunch, and has become the familiar metropolitan sight as citizens reach up and are instantly met with the objects of their whims.

    Growing up, if you got something shipped to you you must have mooooney! It was like, a special occasion or had to be some rare item that you paid a lot of money for and of course my family very rarely had anything shipped and if we did it wasn’t from buying it online!
    Heck it wasn’t until recently, literally this past year, that we started buying things online. I bought a few items on eBay when I was in high school (the cheapest jewelry i could find lol and I felt like a high roller cause I got something delivered to me!).
    But now, we buy so much online, specifically from Amazon! Lol!! It’s just so easy. Besides the fact that you have to do your research on the item and read reviews, it’s just so easy! Buying is easy, researching it is easy, and returning is easy! I just returned something from Amazon for the first time a couple weeks ago and I just dropped it off at my local Kohl’s and they packed, labeled and shipped it for me for free!
    It’s so neat how Amazon has this insane technology and all that, I just wish Google would have something like that since we have a Google smart home AND it bothers me how much these trucks are hurting the environment with so much being shipped. I don’t know lol. Guess we’ll see in time!
