    I was wrongfully accused of using 3rd party tools. Long story short, amazon flex can't do ****.. I wouldn't jeopardize my only income. I didn't know anything about autobots or 3rd party tools til I got that email . My question is I get last min blocks and etc but will I still get reserved blocks? I usually get them Saturday and Sunday evening at exactly 7:26 pm every weekend since I started last month. Nothing this evening

    I got falsely accused too. I no longer get reserved blocks.

    Lol for 12.50/hr in all weather conditions...UPS and Fed Ex, DHL, pretty much any delivery service pays way better for the same job.

    White Vans is where you go when no one else will hire you because of criminal record or crappy driving record.

    OP - reserves come and go. Lately it's been get them for 1-2 months then 0 for a few months while they give them to noobs and inactive.

    Not in all cases. UPS Saturday air drivers specifically only get $13.50 but they have a second job inside the building and benefits that these white van guys won't ever get. Normal drivers get the $24.20 start rate though at least until this Hybrid-driver bull**** kicks in then (for new drivers) it will supposedly drop to $15 or whatever your current progression rate is if it's higher than 15 already.

    It's true here at least. I know of at least one white van contractor who has nearly 100% turnover every 2 months. The hiring process at this point is litterally can you provide docs that you can work? Can u pass a drug screen? Do you have a valid license? Do you have a recent felony? And can you start asap? And away you go.

    Agreed. Turnover on white vans is ridiculous. Not many people can handle 300+ packages on a daily basis.

    I’m hanging on for 9 months now and I’m almost ready to quit. Job is easy, just too many freaking packages. I need more $$.

    They pay us here $150 daily. Based on 10 hours a day. No OT pay, nothing. Just a straight pay. Benefits are a joke.

    They will hire anyone with a pulse. Interview is basically two questions. Do you want a job and can you pass a drug test. :p

    I signed up for Amazon flex over a year ago for the fun of it I couldn’t do deliveries at that time. They were always sending me reserved blocks. Now that I’m only working part time I can do Amazon prime. Why do I know longer get emails with reserved blocks? I’m in CA.

    Odd. I've gotten 15 offers this week for some reason. I usually get one and the weeks before that I got two or three occasionally.
