Awhile back, I applied for an Amazon flex driver position. It is a delivery driver for their new fresh grocery warehouse. Drivers can make their own hours similar to uber, etc. I got an email recently with a "contingent offer" based on drug and background check. I scheduled a so called hiring event to fill out paperwork and find out more about the position. Even though the location was about an hour away, I was still interested because it seemed like a good opportunity. The only thing that stood out as odd was the hourly pay, which I thought was significantly more when I saw the ad and applied.
Anyway, I arrived at the Amazon fresh warehouse with about a dozen others. The manager acted like she owned Amazon. She kept stating "my warehouse, my people", etc. She was only referring to the part time warehouse associate position, which was a lot less pay then the driver position. Everyone there was applying for the same position. I asked her about the driver position and her response was she didn't need any more drivers now and she won't hire more until probably October or November. I stated that I applied for the driver position and she acted like it was a take it or leave it situation. I was really annoyed by this and felt like I wasted my time. Also, it was only supposed to be an hour event, but turned into 3 hours. If I wanted to be a driver, I would have to wait 3 months in the warehouse position to apply for the transfer or just wait for the position to open up again and apply. Has anybody else been in a similar situation with Amazon?
Find something else. They have to many delivery drivers, to hard to get blocks and routes can be a nightmare as far as mileage goes.
