Drivers are completing deliveries well within the four-hour block. Is anyone worried that Amazon will change payments to one-hour blocks or maybe even pay-per-package?
...ding...ding...ding...ding !!! correct answer !You can expect them to do whatever it takes to lower their costs.
>>>>Yes, this means you making less money sooner or later.
What's the dot-com side? And what are the rates they're paying out for blocks less than four hours?...ding...ding...ding...ding !!! correct answer !
This is why 3hr, 2hr and even 1 hour (crazy) blocks are
popping up on the .com side, mostly in the evenings when
there is less volume and re-attempts are run.
To get a full route with 3 hours to deliver it, instead of the customary 4,
effectively cuts the payout 25%. ...and for some of us --->.
However, if it's only a few packages (like <10) going out from 6-9pm,
or 7-9 something, then it's a decent trade off. No worse than a string of
short uber rides down the street with lazy riders at minimum fare.
Maybe even a bit better as the packages do not speak, belch or fart.
150% as much as I could try, I can not agree more ! All of this, yes.I don't know if I would say that I'm concerned, but I do expect it at some point. Even if it's not the pay that changes.
For example, adding a 40 hour per week cap to our hours makes a big difference in weekly pay. That already happened.
That's why I keep active accounts with multiple companies. Because they can and do change the terms all the time.
I just switch back and forth between whichever one meets my needs at that moment.
And that allows me to not be too concerned about it.
