Dreaded Condo Complex


Well-Known Member
Had two blocks of whole foods deliveries the other day. First block was a dream. All single family homes in quite suburban neighborhood. Even had a 22 package delivery in which the instructions were to back into driveway and drop them at the garage. Like I said a dream.
Now...let's talk about the second block. I picked it up while "available for deliveries". This was my first delivery block using this method. I assume you get them when a driver cancels at the last second or doesn't show up.
Well...this person doesn't know how lucky they were. All but one of the deliveries were to massive condo complexes. Now, that doesn't necessarily mean it's going to suck, it just depends on the numbers system and how the complexes are laid out.
The one I went to was insane. New complex so the GPS had no idea where the unit was. Actually it had no idea where the complex was. That was a problem in itself. Couldn't find the building let alone the unit number.
I check the instructions on the app and the customer puts in a google maps link where the building is. It's not a link, its just a long ass google maps address that I couldn't cut and past. So, screw that. I'm out. Done! Check off can't find address and move to next delivery. Guess what? SAME COMPLEX. Now I'm so pissed that I decide that I'm bringing the last 3 deliveries back. NO MORE of this shit.
Understand this, I have a full time well paying job. I don't really need the money. I DEFINETELY don't need the aggravation. Called CS and told them I'm sick and I'm bringing everything back.
End of story.

I hope this will be your last delivery for Amazon. You should leave it to drivers better suited for this.

Times like this you can’t rely on the gps because the place is new so what you should of done was ask someone walking around. Maybe they could of told you where to go or where to find a map of the complex. I think stage poster above me said it’s best to leave it to the drivers better suited for this

You said whole foods right. You do realize you get tips for whole foods? Instead of call / text the customer, you deadheaded back with no tips? Good job! They'll probably order walmart next time where you dont even get hourly base pay for labor.

I know my city. I know where the apartment condo buildings are clustered. I avoid those. I would guess other experienced drivers might avoid too

I find too much time lost parking walking and waiting for elevator

I get claustrophobic in elevators, especially in apartment bldgs

Well, what I left out was that the app wouldn't let me continue to finish my deliveries. I would of moved on and finished otherwise. The thing about the app is that it works great is simple to use UNTIL you run into these types of issues. I hadn't had to deal with anything like that before.
