Dartford employees featured in Amazon Prime Day promo video

Workers at an Amazon sorting centre in Dartford have been featured in a promotional video for the company's UK social media page.

In a snappy 'this or that' Instagram reel, they shared a few of their shopping habits as Prime Day takes place today and tomorrow.

They were asked whether they were impulse buyers, what's on their Prime Day wishlist, and whether they look for bargains when online shopping.

Bianca Gerrard joined Amazon as a stower last August, when the Dartford site opened.

She was thrilled to take part in the video, and said: "It was awesome, it feels really good to be able to be a face for Amazon.

"I feel like a bit of a local celebrity, too. People keep telling me that they’ve seen the video. Is this what fame feels like?"

Her colleague, Ollie Bruce, joined the centre a month later, and is in charge of monitoring any problems in the robotics field as an amnesty responder.

Speaking about his first Prime Day at Amazon, he said: "The atmosphere here is very high-energy, everybody is working together to deliver for customers, it’s like being part of a professional sports team."

Ollie explained how taking part in the video was quite different from his daily routine.

He said: "Outside of Amazon I’m a drummer in a band so I’m used to performing for people.

"Though I never thought I’d swap my drums for some totes, my band mates will love that.

"But that’s why I enjoy working here so much, no two days are the same and you get opportunities to be involved in such a wide range of different things, including being a social media star."
