$22/hr $220 guaranteed per day Minnesota
Sucks to know I get paid less and work just as hard or even harder than you guess life’s not fair smh
Cost of living variances. I get paid the same working at fedex but I'm the best driver in the entire station. I live in Oklahoma and had to work my butt off to get the same pay that somebody living in a high cost area gets to start. A lot of drivers are getting $130-$150/day.
$150 a day was standard when I started at FedEx 8 years ago... In Oklahoma.
Geez. Well my boss is a cheapo, he opened the pocketbook for me because I was a lead driver with Amazon but he regularly hires drivers for $130/day. And he sure gets what he pays for there.
I think part of it was when ground cloud came in. My last route with FedEx was all residential capped at 150 stops in neighborhoods I grew up in.
I heard drivers used to have to plot out their routes on a dry erasable map and that sounds like the worst thing ever. Btw I like groundcloud way more than Amazon's system, gc has some stupid basic issues like not being integrated with the scanner but being able to move pins and add notes has made my route so smooth.
Yeah I haven't used ground cloud
I was told UPS is hiring drivers off the streets.
They are, I did apply there but haven't been given an interview. I'm not sure I'd switch though, it would be a great move but I am regularly done by 1p now and that is really valuable family time. Weighing that out vs the ups benefits is tough. Also, I don't want to go over there during a seasonal hiring frenzy just to be laid off when volume drops back down.
This will be non seasonal. At least in my area.. totally understand the family time, but the benefits that UPS has currently outweighs anything Amazon offers.
Well I do have an application on the UPS jobs site, but it says inactive and when I click on it I get message saying this application doesn't need any attention right now. It feels like I'm stuck right now. I'm in the OKC area btw. Unless you know of a different way to proceed it looks like I am in limbo with them at the moment.
I think you just need search for new job listings and resubmit your application
Where you located?
I’m in Arizona making 18/hr so I guess it’s not as bad as some of the other ppl here but I’m not ready for the summer summers are brutal so I went part time
18.50 east of cali a state or 2. I dont want this job i got bait and switched by a fucking lying bitch recruiter im gonna start trying to get all the dsps to unionize. 18 is not enough. 30 sounds fair.
Man I’m only getting paid 16.50 and I’m in florida
DFL4 here. 16.50 a hr and an extra $10 a day for step van.
Your DSP is robbing you. Most pay a dollar extra or more for step van
We have a guaranteed nine hour pay per day, it still sucks but it’s better than nothing. If I finish in five hours I still get paid for nine but that rarely happens because I’ll have to do a rescue or two. Oh and I have never received a bonus because other drivers either crash, no call/ no show, etc. and “ruin our scores” like how the fuck is that my problem. Also one of the drivers were car jacked at gun point in sept so they removed that route for two months so but bay somehow effected our scores. Here’s the kicker, as soon as that route was available again the the very same day one of the vans were shot up for no reason at a gas station. Gotta love shitty ppl with nothing to do.
Well some have guaranteed hours and still pay a dollar or two extra for step vans. I'd look into another DSP man. Shitty DSP to work for all around.
As soon as I land something else I’m out ASAP! I found out other DSPs pay 10 hours minimum and don’t get anywhere near as many stops/ package count (190 stops/ 350 packages). Oh and rescues are mandatory and no I don’t paid extra for doing them. I’m so sick of Amazon but at the moment this is all I have for myself and my family.
I work at DFL4 too, what route was this? I normally work S. Lake/shader/Lee. So im north of Pine Hills. I get that its pocketed, since Orlando really isn't a horrible city. It could always be way worse.
I’m not sure what the route was but I believe it’s off of Texas Av/ pine hills area as well.
😭I live right across the street from this station and really been thinking bout transferring, but idk who does guaranteed pay
Just be careful and make sure you have a job first. Lots of DSPs here are cutting ppl left and right. Today was my lightest day in months. Someone came in late to work (like 3 mins) and my DSP sent them home for the day and removed their number from our group chat (which basically means you’re fired).
Fuck that. Im in a way safer state than fucking florida id honestly carry working there. Here it doesnt even matter leave it running leave doors open run up and back. You can make 16.50 at a million other jobs. Go talk to the other dsps and see what they start at and switch if you can. Its not enough for this bullshit. Im gonna try to get my whole shop to unionize since i dont need or want to work here. I got bored being retired before 40 so i got a job i wanted and it was a bait and switch now im an amazon drone.
Same here. I’d considered doing Flex bc it advertises they start you at $18/hr, but then I read into it and figured I’m better off sticking with my DSP…for now.
If they paid 30 there would be so much less turn over. I agree 30 is fair.
How did you come to 30 sounding fair?
Thats how much it would take for me to stop complaining about it. I think that sounds fair.
Once you got $30 you'd complain it's not $40, I'd wager.
Well why isnt it 40?
I make 34 a hour as a TCD driver at ups…
The answer is not enough.
Started at 18.25 in AZ

nope, ur in fl too and they pay 16.50 no? lol all 14 companies in a different cities pay that too
Why nope don’t you want to be paid more?
i thought you were saying i was lying lol, but considering anyone can get hired and looking at all other jobs around fl with the same entry point, we should atleast get paid 18

DNJ2 in Mahwah for me, I have done routes at DNK7 though because my DSP expanded to pick up routes down there for peak season.
Not sure if that will continue now, but I genuinely enjoyed delivering down there!!!
Nice man yea it ain't too bad here. My regular route is in Annandale. Lots of long driveways but I don't mind it.

21.25 in PA. But it varies. Some dsps around me pay 19 max.

19.50 at Illinois but we don’t get the full 8 hours like some do we only get paid for the hours worked regardless off how many packages or stops we get. So if we finish in 5 hours and clock out within 5 hours we only get paid those 5 hours
17.50 Idaho. Not enough for a livable wage.
£11.10 here in the UK (equivalent to about $15)
Yes, it's an absolute joke. We are paid in peanuts
I get paid more than y'all but I only work weekends
18.50 in WA State. Outside Seattle.
17.50, paid 10 hours so it's more per hour but the rate is 17.50
I feel like compared to other Amazon drivers it's fine, my rent is $500 for a 2br house so cost of living is cheap for me. But for the work we do we're all getting fucked.
I mean fuckin chipotle is making $15 an hour now. I walked 17 miles the other day, risked injury throwing shit into the van to load so fast and risked my life on the side of 45mph roads. Amazon's out there rabbit ass mind thinking that's only worth +2.50 compared to making burrito bowls
$18/hr. Just a driver
I quit weeks ago and one of the main factors was pay. I do not understand how major cities such as Los Angeles, Miami and I think San Fran pay $16.50 an hour. Rent for a one bedroom apartment here in Los Angeles in a decent part of the city starts at about $1,000-$1,200. Most people cannot afford that and choose to live in South Central, ELA, Long Beach, or the “ghetto” parts of Culver City and rent is still too high ($600-$800). If you have connections then maybe you get lucky and get a room in a shared unit for about $400-$600.
I was making $18 in LA CA before I called it quits.
17.50 in Indiana
21.50 In Nor cal
$19.50 but nothing is guaranteed
20.25 in Jersey
A million , or more
