The demand for local delivery drivers and bikers (and in some cases, walkers) is heating up. Amazon, Postmates, Uber and others are joining the fray. This spells opportunity for home-based folks who want to get out and to earn extra cash, on their own schedule.
Amazon is hiring Flex deliverypeople (cars only, now, but bike or on foot may come) at an advertised rate of $18-$25 an hour. But Amazon says they’re actually earning more than that.
Metro areas include Seattle, New York, Richmond, Nashville, Portland, Raleigh, Virginia Beach, Austin, Dallas, Baltimore, Miami, Atlanta, Houston, San Antonio, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Columbus, the company says.
You’ll need an Android phone (no iOS, for now), and must pass a background check. We expect demand to grow as Amazon recently began expanding its Flex packages from Prime only to include standard packages, too. To apply, click here.
