Spent all day in www.amazon.co.uk warehouses... It seems I actually got a job! The job is regular, at least until Christmas, clean and pays well. Nothing more for a student to desire ^_^ Maybe a different time though, might be hard to work on night shifts and study during daytime :-/ It seems I'm getting 36+ hours of no sleep work/study marathons :-/ Guess I'll just have to see how it goes...
Today it's been procedure and packing training mostly. Also security briefing and survival training... I think these quotes will cover it best:

- Unlike many seem to think - we're not trying to create a Disney Land here!

- It might seem to be a good idea to just step over the conveyor and save some time... It's not. One guy tried that once... Not quite sure if he had any kids before that, but I'm pretty sure he had none after...

- There was a smart guy once who tried to save some time while getting to the cafeteria... Tied to run the conveyor to the next section of the building... Probably forgot it's moving at 29Miles/hour... Anyway, he got away with a bruise... While the conveyor got away with a bigger part of his pants...

- We had to ban CD players... People used to get in with an empty player and get out with a disk inside...

- Every time we think we finally made the system idiot proof - God just comes up with a new brand of idiots...

- We used to sell slightly damaged stuff to employees some time ago... Until the employees came up with the "Hmm, looks nice... Ups, dropped it... I wonder if it's broken? *Kick *Kick Yeah, guess it is..." procedure...

- You are not supposed to be climbing anywhere here... Just last week we had an incident... Tow guys on different floors were talking and couldn't hear each other... The idiot guy from below decided to climb up to the guy above... The floor we have here is double reinforced concrete... Surprisingly - the guy didn't bounce...

- We have a strict no-adult websites policy here. Of course we understand that no matter what you enter into google - there will be a couple of adult content websites opened and we'll be glad to believe that, however, even if it opened by accident - it doesn't mean that you had to look at it for a whole hour...

- We're not responsible for any valuables you loose so don't bring them here. Last year we had an incident where a woman claimed that 700 pounds were stolen from her bag in the locker room... I assure you - canteen doesn't cost THAT much...

Well, the system works that way, that unless it has all the right stamps - the package doesn't even leave the warehouse ground. And naturally all addresses are printed and bar coded...
