    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, pretty good tips depending on the shift, and decent hourly wage. It's nice being able to listen to music while working and a nice balance between challenging and easygoing.

    Cons

    No benefits and we are responsible for wear and tear on our vehicle. Support is slow and sometimes unhelpful. Hard to pick up hours that are not reserved because people pick them up within less than a second.

    Advice to Management

    Give more reserve hours to drivers or come up with a way to not let people accept a shift blindly in less than a second.

    "Great extra job"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Independent Contractor in Houston, TX

      I have been working at Amazon (Less than a year)

      Pros

      Work when you want to

      Cons

      You may not get any deliveries for a couple of days and you have to keep checking the app for available deliveries. Not a career

      Advice to Management

      Make the delivery blocks more available. Don't send available blocks less than an hour away from the appointment time. Sometimes the driver is not close to the pickup place.
