    PDX offering cold, dark, rainy evening blocks during rush hour

    They do care about their customers though, because losing customers means losing money. Many customers don't enjoy having strangers come to their door at nine pm, especially ones not wearing a uniform. Google Flex customer complaints. Also, if one of us gets shot making one of those late...

    PDX offering cold, dark, rainy evening blocks during rush hour

    Its strange because for the past two weeks I've been able to pick up morning routes with relative ease. You'd think they'd want the night routes go to van drivers since they look a little bit more like real delivery vehicles. Sending me to someone's porch at nine at night seems dangerous.

    PDX offering cold, dark, rainy evening blocks during rush hour

    I've been checking my app every hour or so, hoping that the warehouse will drop five hour logistics blocks for tomorrow. Instead they've been dropping evening blocks. Sunset is 5pm, and its fourty degrees outside. The same 4:30 to 8:30 and 4 to 8 blocks keep popping back up, probably because...

    System down at PDX warehouse

    Lol, nevermind, they just released shifts for tonight. 8-10 and 7-10. Nightime logistics deliveries? No thankyou.

    System down at PDX warehouse

    I went in for a five hour block yesterday, and was sent home because the system had apparently crashed and there were no routes. I haven't seen logistics routes offered up since. Anyone know if the system is still down?

    Answer to apartment complex woes?

    I'm to the point where if I have any problem in an apartment complex, I mark it as an access problem and leave. I will likely get a nasty gram for it eventually. I'm definitely in my IDGAFrig phase now. I'm going to school in the fall, and will hopefully phase out driving almost completely.

    Contacting support for 1099 correction

    I move pretty often, so it was a new address. Things were resolved. I sent them an annoyed email, and they sent it in a pdf file. This may be the first time emailing support was helpful.

    Contacting support for 1099 correction

    I realized a couple days ago that the address I have on file with Amazon is incorrect (I accidently omitted my apartment number). I emailed the 1099 support email and asked that they resend it to the updated address. Unsurprisingly, I received a form email: Good Day, Thank you for contacting...

    Could Some One Explain Theses

    Kind of a dickish response there.

    Too many packages

    I haven't delivered in a couple weeks (truck was in the shop and I had a loaner). I did finally get a nasty email from Amazon about returning undelivered packages when I couldn't finish my route in time. I had done so twice in one week, but prior to that I always finished my route regardless of...

    Working after your block has ended

    I'm looking into getting a CDL so I can apply to a more legitimate delivery job. Flex was worthwhile when we had four hour blocks, not so much now.

    Working after your block has ended

    I wonder if Amazon is opening itself up to another class action lawsuit by requiring us to deliver all packages, regardless of whether we've gone past the end of our block. I keep getting 50-70 packages for a three hour block, and and all our routes are now across a busy bridge that is backed...

    Amazon Flex: Amazon Deliveries

    Porland gets $75 for three hours when we get an inch, but that's because Portland is a nightmare when it snows.
