I work in amazon. At the pick time the packages are carefully . . . . . . . . flying around the fuckin warehouse nobody cares if you ordered a pie or a glass it's gonna be destroyed. 1 day in my fullfilment center and you will never order from the internet again ahahaha

This video is BS.. I know when the packages are on the belt get jammed they will go up and start kicking the boxes to free them.. I have seen this myself in person. I guess that is why the carried the pie in person to one spot to another.

You would only wish that they handled the pie in the same way they handle your laptop.

it would be nice to see complete automation of businesses like these, i have received more than one damaged package in my short life

This hardly shows the true nature of how Fedx operates normally during the holidays. They knew he was carrying a pie and went the extra mile because they knew they were being featured on TV. Let's send some hidden cameras in and see how a pie fairs during any time of the year.

This video is an example of how incredible capitalism is. About a dozen people who don't know or really care about each other do work to accomplish a goal for probably 10-20 dollars. If this guy would have tried to bring the pie himself to Hawaii it would have cost thousands. Specialization of labor is a miracle honestly...

What they don't show you is the irrepressible carpal tunnel syndrome you are left with after only three days of work as a package sorter/truck loader. There are no breaks, no stoppage of work. Just unbearable loud noises and voices urging you on to greater production. I was so beat I dozed off in truck after one brutal rush of packing a truck. They fired me. I said thank you went home and had the best sleep of my life. Was not worth the $12.00 an hour.

I work at a FedEx ground warehouse and I can say during peak season, which is roughly from mid November to Christmas, was a bitch. Each door had 3 trailers they had to be filled with packages. One of them was nothing but pecan pies from Goode company. I hated peak season

FedEx is the only shipping company I trust. UPS and USPS both have a passion for losing my fucking packages. FedEx just gets it right each time.

Alan Kennedy (6 months ago)
What you don't seem to realize, is that Fedex, UPS, etc, and this sorting facilities, are light years compared to what others such as i am have in their own country. So enjoy motherfuckers. You should. And let's not even mention Amazon's picking robots....
Shadi Nachat (6 months ago)
If they weren't being fillmed that pie would be in 84747484783 peices
JohnnyWad309 (6 months ago)
All of you comparing Fedex, USPS, Amazon, and UPS, but what you don't realize is USPS actually ends up delivering a lot of Fedex, Amazon, and UPS' shit for them. Usually the smaller parcels, but we receive huge bags of shit from them multiple times a day every day.
