The holiday weekend is over, and it was pretty uneventful in our little corner of the Amazon world. It is really evident that the Inbound peak is over. Both yesterday and today we were scraping for work to send down the receiving line. Today they even put people to work on replacing tape on the floor and sweeping up. We haven’t seen those types of jobs since maybe sometime back in October? I can’t even remember when for sure. Before we went to lunch this morning, we were so short on work (incoming product) that I was even wondering whether they were going to offer VTO. But nope, we managed to find enough around to keep the processes going until the end of the workday. Tomorrow.is our Friday and then we have two…count ‘em…TWO days off. We are really looking forward to that. Next week’s schedule is not yet up, but we’re wondering whether they aren’t going to be putting us back to 40 hour weeks already instead of the 50 hour week we were expecting.
The weather has taken a nice turn for the better. It was in the 50s today – I was comfortable in my shorts and t-shirt on the way home which was so awesome for December. We are looking at mid to high 50s on our two days off. Yes!! By the way, did I mention that we were looking forward to our days off? :)
AND…only 11 days left to work!! YAY!
