    I have been working at Amazon Flex part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get in and out of warehouse. Good organization and the employees are friendly and helpful all of the time. App always works and can be a life saver.

    Cons

    Have to be aggressive to get blocks. Not always a desirable route relative to your home. Once a block is selected you may not receive other blocks.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the ability for a driver to select a later route after an earlier block is selected. Would be nice if, during a route, another later route would be offered.

    I have been working at Amazon Flex part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Having a job, Good pay, Small health benefits, college student benefits, paid training, and friendly people

    Cons

    Very fast pace work, Have an hour to get things done on time, Get told so many times you need to work faster if you are a slow worker, Most of the equipment needs to be replaced, and you only get a 15 minute break. Be nice if you had 20 minutes for part timers.

    Advice to Management

    Help future works understand the time limit they have to get something completed on time. Figure out alternative methods to help slow workers get the quota of items needed on a time limit. Otherwise advice them to start looking for a different job or position at Amazon that is more there speed. Make sure everyone take the same break time instead of different times.

    I have been working at Amazon Flex (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love it! You have flexible schedule, great pay and usually finish a little early and still get paid for entire block, great exercise and awesome Florida wildlife while delivering.

    Cons

    No consistant time that they drop blocks so sometimes you have to keep taking refresh for 2-3 hours to get a block but if your just watching tv or drinking coffee not that bad while tapping.

    Advice to Management

    Drop blocks more at consistant times.
