We are still here in Kentucky working our J-O-B.
They call this time of year Peak season because of all the holiday shopping. That is why they hire all of us work campers and also all of the temps. They also schedule mandatory over time of 50-60 hours a week. They tell us that from Thanksgiving to Christmas* no one can take any vacation time. We must all be here as many hours as possible to full fill all of the Christmas* wishes. We were here last year for peak and this year it has a totally different feel.
For example, they are offering VOT (voluntary time off). Unheard off during a peak season. Example number two. They are starting to cancel the mandatory overtime. Again unheard of during past peak seasons. Example number three. They are asking workampers to voluntarily leave early and keep our bonus Unbelievable.
Rumors are running rampant. It appears that other fulfilment centers are taking our volume of orders. So we are just left twiddling our thumbs.
So here we sit.
*Yes I said Christmas because I am a Christian. Sorry if this offends anyone.
