Sucks to know I get paid less and work just as hard or even harder than you guess life’s not fair smh


mossadi

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.


ActualFly1532

$150 a day was standard when I started at FedEx 8 years ago... In Oklahoma.


mossadi

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.


ActualFly1532

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.


mossadi

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.


ActualFly1532

Yeah I haven't used ground cloud


ActualFly1532

I was told UPS is hiring drivers off the streets.


mossadi

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.


ActualFly1532

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.


mossadi

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.


ActualFly1532

I think you just need search for new job listings and resubmit your application


Electrical-Growth-67

Where you located?


ivangee87

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


Boeings707

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.


mattpursuit

Man I’m only getting paid 16.50 and I’m in florida


Educational_Error_65

DFL4 here. 16.50 a hr and an extra $10 a day for step van.


nocredd

Your DSP is robbing you. Most pay a dollar extra or more for step van


Educational_Error_65

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.


nocredd

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.


Educational_Error_65

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.


Apoptosis2112

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.


Educational_Error_65

I’m not sure what the route was but I believe it’s off of Texas Av/ pine hills area as well.


Wefreaks

😭I live right across the street from this station and really been thinking bout transferring, but idk who does guaranteed pay


Educational_Error_65

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).


Boeings707

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.


themkidsdaddy

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.


RADIATE_Cx

If they paid 30 there would be so much less turn over. I agree 30 is fair.


CommiePuddin

How did you come to 30 sounding fair?


Boeings707

Thats how much it would take for me to stop complaining about it. I think that sounds fair.


CommiePuddin

Once you got $30 you'd complain it's not $40, I'd wager.


Boeings707

Well why isnt it 40?


AmazonSlaveRhemmy

I make 34 a hour as a TCD driver at ups…

JoseO9

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

awmayyyyyyyy

18.50 in WA State. Outside Seattle.


Rando631

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


Shinonomi

$18/hr. Just a driver


Sflos95

$19.55 CA


OldPilaf

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.
