Make your own schedule.

Avis à la une

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Making your own schedule is a plus. Can't choose the location you deliver in, like other delivery apps is the main problem. Fighting for routes when your market is over saturated with drivers.Being penalized for not being able to make deliveries due to many reasons that's not your fault. Example:(No access to gated communities/apartments, packages being sent outside of the desired delivery times)

Points positifs

Work when you want.

Don't do it there is no compensate anything not even offer a little help if your vehicle breaks down. Save up miles and car for something better.

It's a bad maintained place to work, you are treated like if u the best its rather a number game. It is a way for company to save their money you drive up own vehicles and if it breaks down they don't care no help at all. The pay is terrible no concern abt driver safety.

Flexible but not consistent

Hard to catch surged rates, but worth it when you do (you can get paid up to $42/hr) Overall, however, not worth the wear & tear on your car and the inconsistencies with the pay.

Efficient

So far do good. Getting the routes completed before scheduled times without rushing. App interaction and delivery procedures are easy to handle. Would recommend

They don’t care

Driver support is a joke unless you’re lucky enough to get someone that you can understand. You have to repeat yourself 3-4 times per call. They will also interrupt you while you’re trying to get help, also will try to avoid any questions or actual work on their part. Their maps are barely updated. It tried to make me jump a bridge it said was finished several time s

Points positifs

Decent money

Points négatifs

They don’t care

Fair self employed position

It's great to work as a Amazon Flex delivery driver as a second self employed job. You are not supervised when you are in delivering but if you do your job as requested rules you and company both are satisfied!

Points positifs

Self employed, schedule your work as you wish, you are allowed to cancel your shift, ...

Points négatifs

It's get painful when you deliver in crowded areas, Some times it's not easy to find right shift in your area.

Amazon flex

pay is unfair, puts so many miles on your car... the package amount is inconsistent. The only good thing is it allows you to work your own hours......

Not good but not that bad

Routes are random, somedays you get the worst and somedays you get good ones, no way to choose, if you get a bad route the pay becomes loss and viceversa

Takes you 30 miles out

Started my first Amazon Flex delivery yesterday in Colorado Springs where I live to find out that my deliveries were all the way our in Denver. The pay is not high enough to be driving out 30 miles to do deliveries in an area notorious for car accidents and bumpy, non paved roads. I was really upset and felt like this was set up purposely because Amazon wouldn't even hire me for a warehouse job because I had a misdemeanor on my record from over 8 years ago! Also when I applied to be a Flex driver, the ad for the job stated there was a $1000 bonus but I've yet to see any information about that since I applied. I should not have to go out of my way to research this information when it should be legally transparent. The fact that you can't see where you'll be delivering until you've scanned your packages is a load. For Amazon to be such a wealthy corporation, they sure do treat their employees badly. Why make it impossible for us to know where we're delivering packages to? If I were a regular employee then that would be less of an issue but I'm a contractor. One, I barely ever get the blocks I want and two, the reason I'm contracting in the first place is so that I can set my own work pace but Amazon Flex forces us to take the routes that are farthest away from what is convenient or safest for us as contractors. This is ridiculous and a horrible business practice on the part of Amazon. Amazon really needs to improve the way they work with their contractors. Instead they treat you as if you don't matter especially at the beginning.

Points positifs

Work anytime

Points négatifs

Routes can be 30 miles out of town, low pay for mileage driven

Need to update minimum per hour

You lose most of the time. You have to constantly looking at the app to get more money or else someone will get it. They never updated the minimun per hour even the gas prices went up so bad. And they added more stops

Easy part time Gig work

Easy way to make some money on the side. Work when you want to. No boss to answer to. The pay is decent but if you are serious and hustling you can make some good money. Show up, Scan in your packages and drop them off and that's it. The only downside is that you don't know what area you are going to.

Points positifs

Super Flexible. Plenty of blocks available all hours of the day.

Points négatifs

alot of miles and wear and tear on your vehicle. Sometimes you end up in bad areas.

Side hustle

You got to like driving and it's best to have a nice size trunk or van due to how many orders you will receive. No benefits for independent contractors. A little annoying when you can't find the address keep a back up charger for your cell phone. Breaks are when you take it.

Points positifs

Gps

It's hardly alright. Seems way better than reality of it

Pay seems ideal until you factor in your own wear and tear on vehicle, you pay your own gas, you'll likely end up an hour away from home when your block ends and not be paid for the drive home. Oh, and if you experience any issues/car trouble/stranded, they quickly remind you that you're an independent contractor, but not until after you've spent an hour on the phone with them as they promise they are working to help you and will do everything they can. Stranded into a wicked snow storm with no running vehicle suddenly, frostbite as I tried to stay warm in my vehicle on the phone with them, for literally nothing. In the end, they were only concerned about if I could finish my block or not. I had one package left and that was their priority. You're better off delivering with an Amazon DSP, you'll make more money, drive their vehicle, and actually be an employee with benefits and (hopefully) be cared about should something go wrong during your route.

Here it is...

Savior for single parents since can take kids along. Decent pay and nice flexibility. Been a blessing but after Covid got a little weird. Don't quite think the weirdness is Amazon's doing due to explanation following. I've worked with both IPhone and Android. Both get severely hacked often. As soon as go to a new carrier, new #, sometimes new phone problems go away for a short bit. Makes me think not Amazon. Wierdness: sometimes have same cars show up near delivery stops, appear to maybe stealing packages after drop-off? Some of these cars have no tags. Some emails seem legit from Amazon. Some have a wicked flare. Those are received middle of night. IPhone app now has button that gives option to delete Amazon account. This is scary since my phone has been manipulated from outside sources. Got email app supposed to have car showing at stop. It doesn't via Android. Phones time is sometimes adjusted in app. Calls don't always seem to be actual Flex support. Been told by 1 carrier phone shows as watch on account. Phone has switched to different types of phones on carrier account.

Very far routes but easy work

You will get very far routes. But that’s just how it goes. Overall easy work. Just hard to find premium blocks because they get snatch up within half a second.

Freedom to make your own hours

Needs to raise the base rate for flex drivers. The pay is the same as it was when I started 6 years ago. Amazon increased pay for regular employees, but not the flex drivers.
