Very quick paced and competitive
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 14, 2018
A typical day as an Amazon Flex driver includes waking up early to see what driving blocks are available, picking up an available block, arriving at the warehouse about 10-15 early, having a random cart delivered to your car, scanning all the packages on your rack, sorting and loading them into your car for your convenience. Finalizing your pickup route in the Amazon provided app, checking your route and map to make sure there are no missorts and if there is hoping you get a manager in a timely manner that will take the packages that don't belong in your route off. I learned how to time manage, sort packages in a way that works best for me and following directions with the navigation system provided but also being able to go into the map and re-route my deliveries if necessary. The hardest part of the job can be to get a delivery block, a depending on how many packages and the route provided occasionally going over your block time. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make your hours, choose the times you want to delivery and make as much as you want untaxed, following the labor laws of only 8 hours a day and 40 hours a week.
Make your own schedule and be your own boss
Delivery blocks can be hard to get, routes can be difficult, no benefits
