Hey everyone! I have re-uploaded this video due to a copyright claim on the other one. It is the same video just different music around the 12 minute mark. I will keep the comments on for this video but just know that I don't deliver for amazon anymore. Thanks for watching!

@Nikki Marie I tried to drive for Amazon through a 3rd party logistics company but I hated doing that many stops. I NOW drive for another 3rd party logistics company for DHL and we only do about 45 stops. At DHL we do pick-up packages and deliver packages so 50/50. Just this week I did my 5 days with 10 hrs overtime
Caius Postumius Turrinus (10 hours ago)
I noticed you mentioned that the van was not too big so the route would be a little bit better or easier for you. Does that necessarily mean just because you have a larger van. Means you have more packages in overall? Could it also mean that you may have more bigger packages than small? Like smaller vans may have as much or more packages as the larger vans. Just small packages? Thanks.
Caius Postumius Turrinus (8 hours ago)
@Nikki Marie Wow. So first come first serve kinda thing?
Nikki Marie (8 hours ago)
No we just chose any van that we wanted. You get whatever route they give you.
victor D. (1 day ago)
I just started to work for fedex Ground and shut i use to think it was easy, but the packages could be very large and heavy. This seams to be lighter..

Are there any cameras inside that can see you in the vans ?
Nikki Marie (14 days ago)
no
LykanRose (15 days ago)
I work for Amazon in Smyrna and we’re the last wave so we get to the station at 12pm. I get usually get 136 stops which is a lot since we start at 12 and don’t get to our first stop at 1pm but by 5pm I’m already done even though the ending time is at 8pm. I hit 30 deliveries a hour. I don’t take lunch breaks since I started in July and I don’t even spend 30 seconds at a stop. I run to the house and run back to the van.

@Nikki Marie what is the longest (time) that I've been out delivering?
Nikki Marie (15 days ago)
That day was slow.
Ace Goodheart (17 days ago)
I think i would enjoy this job. You work alone. It's a physical job rather than a sucky mental job (stress). The only problem I might have with this job is I sweat so easily. I could see myself drenched in sweat doing this job.

Rebecca Lopez (20 days ago)
Just finished a supposedly 8 hr shift yesterday but it too me 10 hrs and I even had two people “rescue me” meaning they took some packages off my van. Anyways I worked 11:30-9:30pm and it was dark and raining and I wear glasses so that was extremely hard to see the house numbers I had the worst experience in my life working for amazon 3rd party company not to mention I got yelled at not to bring any packages back so I tried my best to deliver every single package so I did. I have blister on my foot from all the walking I did the rabbit which they use is horrible the directions are crazy! Well with all that said I went home crying my eyes out feeling like a failure! I only delivered 98 packages and peek season your supposed to deliver about 300 definitely not the job for me.

Amazon will change the delivery business like walmart did for shopping . Long hours, lower pay and smaller benefits. While the owners make enough money for 100 lifetimes .

WHen she least expect it 300 stops “will be the norm”. These companies just work you until they notice that you cant handle the job and slowly lets you go for another person, is sickening what these companies do to people.

Hey i just submitted my back ground check to work for a company that delivers for Amazon. You're such a hard worker and when I saw those packages I instantly got discouraged. I love driving and I always wanted to get paid while doing it. Honestly I don't think I'd succeed at what you do. I appreciate Amazon drivers so much more now. 🙏

Hey, nice job with the video!!! 👊🏼 I think it looks like a pretty simple and easy job, thing about getting paid by the hour is you’re getting “paid” by the hour!!! I think these days too many folks want to get the money but don’t want to put in the work necessary, you have to do what you have to do and keep it moving!! I’ve been a CDL driver over 20 years and started in the beer delivery business with Budweiser, delivering over 1,000 cases of beer off of a 20 bay side load truck. You want to talk about work that was some work having to push up each door and then down stacking product building stacks, then scooping the product with a dolly and wheeling it into grocery stores and convenience stores, over and over till the order is in, checking in the product, rotating and stocking product, pricing, building displays, putting away the beer, collecting cash and checks, often times a bag full of $ 1 dollar bills with collections over hundreds of dollars. I think this generation is far too “soft” in their mentality and work ethic, if you go in defeated in your mind believing you won’t get a route done based on package amount or hours then you’ve already lost!!! To me this job is “cake” compared to anything I’ve ever done, sure you have to get on and off the truck and deliver to apartments and what not but so what?! At least you’re getting “paid” and to me I look at it as a challenge and a workout, you have to change the “defeated” mindset and just get it done stop by stop!!! Don’t get overwhelmed with thinking “I have so many stops or packages”, enjoy the work and keep it moving!! This drop and go work is the easiest work there is, most folks commenting about amazon being hard either are too soft or just don’t want to work! These same people are the type that would quit on their first day delivering beer back in the day, or quit period because that’s their mentality. You have to conquer what’s in front of you and not let it conquer you, do the job and be appreciative you have one!! ✊🏽😎

I start my training tomorrow in LA. Your video helped me see what I'm getting myself in for. Seems like hard work.
Austin R-Debski (13 days ago)
@Iron Guy The first week of in field delivering was hell. I had a route that was nothing but apartments and condos which is a complete pain in the ass because they are hard to get in to and the addresses are poorly labeled. I did have a route that same week in the suburbs and it was an absolute dream! Plenty of places to park and you can directly see where you are delivering too. As soon as you get the hang of things and get good at sorting your packages, I find this job to be actually fun.
Iron Guy (14 days ago)
Austin R-Debski how are you doing now ? Is it worth it ? I have my first training on Monday .

@Austin R-Debski how is the training? Do you do some ride alongs with another driver for a week or how does the training all go down?
Austin R-Debski (1 month ago)
@Bojidar Martinov It was very interesting. My supervisor accepted my availability so i'm very relieved about that. It's going to be a tough job but i don't mind driving and i'm quick on my feet. So I'm up for the challenge.

The hardest part of our day is trying to find apartments that are numbered weird. Plz guys if you live in an apartment that you kno is numbered CRAZY, and order Amazon, PLZ PLZ PLZ GIVE DIRECTIONS TO THE APARTMENT. (This by far is our HARDEST part of our day.)

I was a package car driver for UPS. I would have between 190 to 220 stops a day and I would be done by 5 or 5:30, then I would go help other driver's. I'm in feeders now. The driver in this video has less stops and all small packages and she is talking about 10 - 12 hour days?  What am I missing here?

Cruiser007 (1 month ago)
Nikki thanks so much for sharing a day in your life. Your honesty & being upfront is amazing!!! I wish everybody was like you. Sorry things didn't work out for you with that company, but chalk it up as experience. I'm sure there's many other companies out there that would hire you in a heartbeat. I think you would be a good truck driver. I've been doing it for 30 years & no accidents or issues. I make about 3 or 4 stops in a day. I have to stop in the Baltimore & DC area at the main post office hubs. I do a lot of waiting while they unload 20 or 30 skids from my trailer. I'm not going to say how much I make here but it's a lot more than $15.00 an hour. Thanks again for your hard work👍👍👍

What is it like driving in the winter seasons when the weather is bad? Like snow, ice, heavy rains, dark skies, hard winds.. I want to be a delivery driver but I'm worried about driving in the streets with such weather conditions.
LeggoMyWebos (1 month ago)
Last winter i was soaked 3 days of the week & always carried an extra pair of clothes to change into when i finished my route. Had to deal with being cold & wet for like 6hrs. Had to run almost all day & was exhausted every day forsure. Challenging but fun
