Today started a little off. I got dressed this morning then sat down in the car to warm it up before driving to work, and noticed there was a hole in my pants (after making contact with the cold seat)… not good. Changed my clothes, then forgot my jacket, lunch and phone- which lead to me having to tip toe around the camper searching for things in the dark, while everyone else was sleeping peacefully!

The information, ideas, reviews, and comments I provide are none other than my own. I find they are true from the first hand, personal experience of working inside the Amazon Fulfillment Center as a Camperforce Associate. I will provide a truthful explanation and as many details as possible both here as well as in my ebook, but this information can change without notice at any time. Please keep in mind, your own personal experience is your best resource for information.
Here’s how Day 7 of CamperForce Peak 2016 went:
First of all, I swapped out my shoes today and it definitely helped! No foot pain to report- so I would say the day was a success overall!
Now for the details:
I worked in Picking all day and went from several different mods in 2 different buildings. Building A was the same as yesterday and has tons of concrete floors. I was excited when my scanner moved me to Building C- and over to E mod. It’s technically called a super mod, because it’s huge and has 4 floors with 2 sections each separated by a conveyor down the center.
Lots of talk today about the possibility of being let out early, since this Peak seems to be a little slower than years prior. I labeled it as wishful thinking, as rumors usually start floating around the fulfillment center this time of the year, but without a Amazon HR staff to verify, they just can’t be trusted!
At the last break, I checked my voicemails, one of which was from the onsite HR rep for Camperforce. He said to come to his office for something we’ve been waiting for, for about a year… My gift card from winning second place in the T-Shirt design contest in 2015 had arrived! Yippee- I was beginning to think I wouldn’t see if before the end of the season. THANKS!
For the last quarter, I did CUBISCAN. From what I was told, this is basically a process of finding items in the fulfillment center that have been flagged for one reason or another- and need to be weighed and measured. In other words, I was playing a one player game of hide and go seek with ultra-special (far apart) items that were not being used to fill customer orders.
After my shift was finished, I stopped by to pick it up then headed to clock out at the front break room. After a super special escort of the gift card through security, I walked out and headed to the car.
BOOM. 11.23 miles walked today
45 hours worked this week.
1 more day to go!!!
