New wave of drivers again

Has anyone noticed they hired a bunch of new drivers again? And just like a couple months ago, I’m not seeing the same blocks I normally would. Anyone else? :rolleyes:

I haven't noticed many new drivers but there has been lots of turnover with WH staff, and ID/load-in changes. (Seattle)

Amazon hires in new drivers from their waiting lists in almost every large city at least once a month. These cities are never posted on the Flex portal but are pulled from internal wait lists so just because your city isn't on the flex web site doesn't mean that Amazon isn't onboarding drivers in your area.

You can count on Amazon to continue to do this as there is no down side for them in having too many drivers. The only people who loose are the Flex drivers.

This is happening in Riverside. Tons of new people again and blocks are drying up. The 9 am are almost non existent now. Seeing some mid day blocks usually starting around noon and they are a mess. One area then a bunch of spread out redelivery attempts that get thrown in.

Lol new drivers are hungry. In my city the blocks are snatched in .00005 seconds and the noobs have no idea when they drop. Its impossible for them to get taken any quicker.


The few blocks that do sit it wouldnt matter if Amazon hired 100 million flex drivers because:

A) weather
B) The pay is not enough for that particular time/day. Ie other gigs pay more during that slot.

those 4 hour evening blocks that we used to grab early in the morning Are gone. First they began disappearing from weekday shifts, but for the last few weeks of hey havent dropped on weekends either.

As Amazon onboards more and more drivers they have a larger pool of drivers to offer reserves to so that mitigates the need to offer as many block drops as they used to.

Speaking of reserves, has anyone gotten any for the upcoming week? They come out Friday afternoon/night here but no one has received any yet this week.
