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

    Pros

    Customers live the service. Tips are tremendous. You are paid $18 per hour plus tips.

    Cons

    Like all app based delivery jobs, too many drivers are hired. In this case, almost 200. Amazon clearly only cares about customers and not about the people on the front line so to speak who the customers actually can put a face to, which are the drivers. Working as an IC is hard enough, but after working two four day work weeks, I have not worked in twelve days and am on The schedule only once in the next seven days. What good is it to get hired if you can't work? The corporate managers here don't know squat and only tell you the,scheduling is random. I guess Skynet has finally taken over.

    Advice to Management

    Without satisfied and motivated drivers, do you honestly expect customers to be greeted with a happy, polite, well groomed and friendly driver?

    Pros

    Loved the job and working from home. Awesome manager. Gave us off Christmas and New Year's, and I wasn't sure they would, so was surprised. They care about their employees.

    Cons

    Was only seasonal and was not chosen to be kept on past January.
