WHAT IS AMAZON FLEX?
For Amazon Prime Now deliveries, the giant online retailer hires independent contractors to make deliveries. It's more cost-efficient for them than using major delivery companies like UPS, and allows them to guarantee delivery within just an hour or two.
Amazon Flex is only available in certain markets right now, including Arlington (VA), Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Nashville, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, Raleigh, Richmond, Rockville (MD), San Antonio, Seattle, Springfield (VA), Tampa Bay, and Virginia Beach. However, Prime Now is growing in demand, so it's likely that Amazon will expand its services to new regions soon.
Amazon Flex drivers earn between $18 and $25 an hour, based on their per-delivery payment and on tips from customers. Drivers can pick up delivery blocks on the days they want to work, and they can schedule their availability for the future.
As a driver, you pick up items at the Amazon distribution center and deliver them directly to people's homes. Items can range from a blow dryer at 10:00 p.m. to a bag of dog food in the morning.
