    I love how New Jersey is listed with the major cities.

    • Salsz

      Lol i was thinking the same thing!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. Melanie

    I can see why Orlando is in here. That place is a mess.

  3. Karen

    I signed right up in Boston. I tried driving for Lyft, but who wants to deal with angry commuters? This is a fantastic option! Thanks so much!

    For those of you who are thinking of this make sure you calculate the cost of gas along with extra maintenance of your car. Add in these fees and you might do better to work retail.

      You’ve got a fantastic point. My (high mileage) car DIED because the amount of driving I did over the span of 6 months I drove for Amazon. I got into a shiny new car payment to show for it…. and NO DELIVERY SLOT TIMES to get paid to pay for the dang car! I don’t know why they keep hiring more drivers when they don’t even have shifts available to the ones they already have on :/ Good luck everyone who decides to pursue this but like Laura said – make sure it’s going to be worth it to you. Another poster has a point tho — toilet paper and wine don’t backseat drive or give you the wrong address ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Where the deliveries local (in town/city or neighboring towns/cities) or in a larger area (15+ miles)? Just trying to decide if I should go for this. What are the positives & the negatives? Thank you.

        • Trisha

          I drive for Flex in Arizona. I really do like it but sometimes I spend more time looking for a shift than actually working one. Amazon rarely schedules me/the people I work with a delivery block (its been over a month since I have been scheduled with open availability) so you have stalk the app to pick up shifts when you can/if they become available. You are considered an independent contractor so you have to pay your own payroll taxes and I do pay more for car insurance. I have driven as little as 30 miles up to 130 miles a day both in town and dirt back roads out in the country, The delivery area you get varies greatly day to day and some routes are more challenging that others. You get paid by the block…so if you get a 3 or 4 hour block you get paid $54 or $72 (we get paid $18/hr here) If you take less time to deliver you make more money…if you take longer, less money. ๐Ÿ™‚

            I was having troubles getting offers too but found out I wasn’t updated on the changes from the app. So make sure you update your app so you can get the offers ….

            Hope this helps

          I live about 30 minutes outside the major metro. So for me they were local, but also not really local. They ran anywhere from Seattle all the way up to the Northern end of my city.

          Positives: Pay is decent and there are bonuses during busier times (Super Bowl, holidays). You can set up your schedule when you’re available to work which offers some nice flexibility if you work another job/have to work around a spouse or babysitter’s schedule/have an event you can’t miss. Minimal interaction with others which is great for introverts.

          Cons: Well, it’s a lot of stop/go which beats up on your car. Amazon doesn’t reimburse your mileage/gas/maintenance which is why the pay seems so high ($18/hr). Sometimes you don’t get picked for shifts for the week in the “lottery” system – sometimes you have to babysit the app to see if same-day slots open up if others cancel or the demand is higher than they expected. Trying to find parking in a major metro city can be a pain in the rump (Amazon does not reimburse any parking fees, tolls or tickets you receive either).

          It’s pretty much like any other delivery job; pizza or Chinese food but you’re delivering Amazon goods. Hope that helps. Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also make sure your auto insurance covers delivering goods. If you have a wreck and have to file a claim, your carrier may not cover you, or drop you. Sometimes you can add an endorsement but you should double check.

    I live in Las Vegas but when I clicked through, it wasn’t listed.

    • Jackie

      You are right, Las Vegas is not listed.

  7. Daniela

    I clicked through for the city of NJ (hee hee) and it said they didn’t have an app available yet for my IPhone. I signed up for an alert once it becomes available. I wouldn’t mind doing this during the weekend to offset my couponing.

  8. Mike

    Website says it is available in NJ but after I downloaded the app (I have Android) and tried to register, NJ is not listed as an available city. I was told that I will be notified when my “city” becomes available. This stinks!

  9. Meghan

    Denver also says it is an available city, but when I went to go sign up it is not one listed! ๐Ÿ™

    • Mike

      I called Amazon Flex support. I was told that what happens is that although a city maybe listed, if the positions (which are limited) are filled, it will not show when you try to register. They told me that they will send an email when more positions open up. Guess we just need to wait.

  10. Mark Stinson

    I guess this was good when they first started, but why are they advertising if they do not have enough business to support the drivers who have been approved. This is frustrating and bad for their business also. People are not going to apply as this service is so limited and not in very many markets. Deliv has the same problem. I was approved, went through all the downloads,application and was certified just to be told that my area was on hold.

    Their just is not enough business to support the drivers who do want to do it. Bummer for us all.
