If a package doesn't require a signature, they expect you to be home when the package arrives so they just drop and go. I always request mine to be put on my back steps so it cannot be seen from the driveway or road.

They used to do that but from my experiences they stopped doing it for some reason. Heck, I just had a delivery arrive via FedEX. I heard the box being dropped on the step and then the truck driving away. There's a damn doorbell right there but they don't even ring it.

I think they don't do it because their time is clocked and they've got hundreds of packages to deliver within a certain amount of time. If they knock or ring, they're taking a chance someone will start talking to them and keep them there longer.
