Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone from Northern Ireland has completed any Amazon Flex blocks? I've been signed up for a number of weeks now but haven't accepted a block yet.

Is it worth the pay rate? The rates look great but I'm wondering if I would end of forking out most of the fee on fuel. Most of the blocks are 4 hours so I'm thinking that would cover a lot of ground? Maybe the deliveries are city centre only or just around one town?

Hi Chris,

I'm from a rural part of North Antrim so I was hoping someone on the board could fill me in. I'm going to try at least one shift before Christmas. If I manage to successfully complete one, I'll let you know my thoughts on it.

Hi Mabozza,

The same thing happened to me. The background check guys must have taken a month before they got back to me. Doesn't fill me with a lot of hope if I ever get round to working a block for them.

Pretty disappointing to read all this. You'd have thought a company the size of Amazon would be all over this!!

When I contacted Amazon through the app, it was if they were unaware I was mid-way through the application process. They kept advising that they were not recruiting any further drivers in my area. It was very frustrating and I can understand why people will give up with them.
