Give delivery drivers the same opportunity for advancement that all other in house employees have. I am a delivery driver who just started pursuing a bachleors degree in supply chain management and logistics and know several others who would like to advance as well but our time on the road does not amount to in house experience required by amazon for leadership positions.Please promote some type of apprenticeship or internship for delivery drivers. Of all people we know what problems exist both from management and what problems exist when we are out on the road in certain areas and some of us have ideas on how to make things run in a safer more economical way for both drivers and Amazon.

Have two 15 minute breaks and 1/2 hour lunch for an 8 hour shift.
I would suggest that your break be timed from when you get to the break room. I really like working here but by the time you get to and from outside or the break room it ends up being a 8 minute break.
