Amazon need drivers and warehouse staff, hiring for over 5000 positions across the country

Amazon Is Hiring For Over 5000 Positions Across Canada
They need drivers and warehouse staff.
These jobs are available in the company's warehouse and delivery networks, which have become more important than ever during this time.

The majority of the jobs are available in Ontario, with an additional 800 positions available in both Alberta and British Columbia.

The majority of positions available are for full-time warehouse associates, including some seasonal jobs, and pay $16.70 an hour (with an hourly bonus for night shifts).

Warehouse staff get orders ready, load them into trucks for delivery, and stock inventory.

Amazon will even pay for the safety footwear required to work in these positions.

While the job can be physically strenuous, the company has its staff do daily stretches to get warmed up before a shift.

If you want to do something more advanced in the warehouses, you can also receive training for operating powered industrial equipment.

Anyone interested in a job as a delivery driver can apply through Amazon's delivery service partners website.

These positions pay $16.50 an hour, and often entail four to five 10 hour days a week.

You can make 660-825 a week, by working 40-50 hours, or you can work 0 hour and get 500 a week.
I wonder what people will choose.

CERB lasts only 4 months and EI around 9 months depending on how much you've worked before. This is good for restaurant workers who will probably never return to work.

CERB will likely last longer than 4 months. Why would I do this when I can collect CERB and deliver food at my leisure? I can sit on my ass and be my own boss whenever I want to work and make more money than this. No thanks.

It's actually quite dangerous to do this, stretching is horrible before hard physical labour or running.

talk to a physiotherapist.

There isnt a single study that will back static stretching before exercise. It's extremely dangerous, its one of the 3 main reasons that runners are always hurt.

Being warmed up is enough: Hot shower, aeoric movements.. thats it. Anything over that is DANGEROUS. You are stretching muscle tissue and breaking it appart before using it strongly. That makes no sense. Would you stretch playdough if you wanted to build something sturdy?
