Not great
  • Contracts don’t match the hours people work

    Do delivery drivers work the same number they are contracted for at Amazon?

    Only some people work the same number of hours they’re contracted for

    How we know this

    68% of people report working 8 hours or more than they’re contracted for each week

    Based on information from 119 job reviews

    Why this matters

    At a good job, you should expect to work about the same number of hours that your contract guarantees you, most of the time.

    It’s useful to pick up or drop a few shifts here and there, but if you often work a lot more hours every week than you’re contracted for, a good job should guarantee them.

    This means you’re more likely to know when you’ll be working and how much you’ll earn in advance.

  • Hard to choose shifts

    Do delivery drivers at Amazon get to choose the shifts they work?

    Most people don’t get enough choice over which shifts they work

    How we know this

    48% report that their manager gives them enough choice over which shifts they work

    Based on information from 128 job reviews

    Why this matters

    A good job is flexible around your personal life. This means you get a say in when you prefer to work.

  • Shifts get changed at short notice

    Do Amazon managers change delivery drivers shifts at short notice?

    Most managers change people’s shifts at short notice

    How we know this

    54% of people say their manager changes their shifts at the last minute

    Based on information from 147 job reviews

    Why this matters

    If your manager is often changing your shifts at short notice that’s a sign of poor planning. At a good job you won’t be messed around at the last minute.

Good

    How we know this

    70% of people report it’s easy to book holidays

    Based on information from 147 job reviews

    Based on information from 152 job reviews

    A good job should guarantee you a minimum number of hours in a contract, if you want it.

    This makes it easier to plan your finances, because you know how much you’ll be earning.

Here’s a recent review that mentions hours:

  • Best thing

    Take time off whenever you want to.
    Get certain pay

    Worst thing

    Late night hours

    Based on information from 165 job reviews

    Why this matters

    A good job should give you good training when you start, not just drop you in at the deep end.

    It’s also very important if your job involves anything that could be dangerous. Good training from the outset keeps you and your team safe.
