To accompany the video the TikTok user Cameron Smiley also offered some insight into the working conditions when doing this kind of job for Amazon.
“Yall wonder why your staff is always a revolving door. And then to make it worse you have big musty nasty attitude MANAGEMENT that kill the environment every time they’re around. I’d name drop but lemme secure my new job first. You can tell how personally unhappy this troll is. Always nasty energy and a nasty attitude.”Cameron Smiley, Delivery Driver, Amazon

What Is Normal For An Amazon Driver?
For those who are not familiar with what would be normal package numbers for Amazon drivers I wanted to find out what was considered normal.
I managed to find a reddit thread with a number of Amazon drivers comparing what their average number of packages and stops are. You can see the thread here, and it makes sense that the numbers depends on whether drivers are delivering to rural or urban routes.
In the examples from that list then the numbers that Cameron is complaining about in the above TikTok video are certainly on the higher side, but they are also definitely not unheard of.
This isnt the first time that TikTok videos have gone viral featuring Amazon drivers, the most recent was a FedEx driver explaining an interaction where he had to buy an Amazon driver a drink due to the excessive heat in LA.
