Make Up to $28/Hr. Delivering Packages for Amazon in Your Own Car

Work from Home Jobs / Home-Based Jobs – P/T Amazon Flex Drivers Needed

If you’d like to make $18-$28 an hour delivering packages locally in your own car, Amazon Flex continues to hire. Set your own schedule. Drivers are needed for regular deliveries and for Prime Now deliveries, too.

Hiring Cities

Amazon says it’s hiring now for these areas:

Chicago, Hartford, Kentucky, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco (average $28.18/hr. here, drivers report), Seattle and Tampa.

If you don’t see your location, you can sign up for Amazon’s waitlist here. The company is steadily expanding Flex deliveries, so your area could be next. Flex Drivers on Glassdoor give the job 2.3 stars out of 5, and 3.4 on Indeed.


Besides a vehicle, requirements include a background check and smartphone. Android and iPhone are both OK per Amazon’s FAQs  — Android 4.4 or newer, iPhone 5 or newer — though some drivers report the Flex app for iOS doesn’t work at all locations. (If you need an Android for your city, there are low-cost models available, if your budget permits. And for $18-$28 an hour, a phone upgrade may be worth it if you have an older model.)

You’ll use the app to reserve blocks of time when you want to work. Some blocks will be busier than others, and the same goes for cities.


Payment is on Tuesdays and Fridays, by direct deposit to your bank account. “Payments typically appear on the next business day,” Amazon says.
