Slip of the finger Amazon even.
Oh! Me too.

And ne ;o)
What a set of nuntys we are.
I've had them deliver on the same day. Same with Argos, fab service.
Quite often receive goods the day after ordering.
In the near future you’ll be able to order anything and get it within the hour. Living in these times is good.
At what cost though! I'm disabled and virtually house bound. I use Amazon a lot because I have no other option, but my heart goes out to the Amazon worker on a zero hours contract at basic pay literally being run ragged in a huge warehouse being timed constantly, even when going to the toilet.

Same goes for the delivery driver who is contracted to deliver whatever and however long it takes, and who, if sick, not only doesn't earn himself, but has to pay for their replacement.

That's progress?
Pretty standard, as is same day delivery if you get your timing right.

Sadly it does involve staff exploitation though, i’m Not proud of being part of that aspect of the service.
I see your point postdog, but is any employment better than none ?
Is working for or delivering for Amazon a wee bit like the Hotel California then?
I worked at an amazon warehouse and some of those drivers were making crazy money as well as finishing half days depending on route and subcontractor they were working for, others ( noobs) had hard times but once knew the system were okay, also many drivers got a 5 fingered discount and amazon was just more likely to pay out then investigate thefts
Yes even in Northern Ireland we get next day delivery!
Don't even understand that last remark about hotel California, and I'm not entering a debate, just stating a downside. As said, I'm house bound and Amazon Prime is a Godsend to me with delivery, videos and music, but if I wasn't disabled, it wouldn't be there.

As for any job being better than none, debatable if that job just prohibits things in some ways.
A lot of people work in high pressured jobs, Postdog, with constant monitoring, penalties for errors and no job security. There has been plenty of complaints from Aldi staff.
I know a chap who drives for Amazon via an agency and he likes the job well enough, and is happy with the money.
POSTDOG, The Eagles had a song, "Hotel California" and one of the lines is "You can checkout any time you want but you can never leave"

The comments about Amazon employees' and drivers' working conditions appear to ignore the fact they can leave or stop driving at any point.
if you have prime and live in one of the "now" areas they do 2 hour delivery. I, like eccles feel uncomfortable about their employment practices, and also about their tax dodging in this country, however not uncomfortable enough to stop using them
Can I point out that they are not tax dodging they are paying legally what they have to by using the current laws
