At amazon’s SDF-1 everyone has lots of cards, mostly hanging around our necks for quick and ready access. Here is a look at ours.


Because we work around moving machinery, the lanyard has a break away feature, and the cards are on a thumb bolt swivel clip. The ID card works with a bar code and also a magnetic proximity strip.

Next to the ID card is a LED flashlight, because we work in a very large building with no windows. It is on the lanyard so that it is there for an emergency. The other cards have various bar code “tools” that can be infrared scanned at the computer terminals.

On the lanyard also is a 3 years peak service pin. We haven’t heard if we will get a 4 years service pin for this year yet. They are usually given out at the last day’s work during the exit party.

The peak of the season is in full swing, it won’t be long before it is over, and we head to Arkansas for the Holidays.

Merry CHRISTmas !
