                             The program was two people from Amazon’ HR
                            department  explaining the hiring protocol and
                           what they must have to do the  jobs and what physical
                           characteristics are necessary.   It requires standing
                           all day, working in different temperatures, and sorting.
                           There are three facilities, the large warehouse at I-70 and                                               Tower, Amazon Fresh which are groceries and
                           Amazon Plus which are large bulky items.
                           
                           Amazon bought Whole Foods which are becoming
                           the food division for Amazon.
                         
                          Flex is the delivery system used.  It is private citizens
                          using their own vehicles like Lyft or Uber.
                          The question was asked if Amazon was going to go
                          robotic.   It is underway in Seattle where they do  new
                          experimental things.  There is an added delivery fee
                          added to orders.
