An Amazon delivery driver has revealed three things he wishes he had known before signing on to work for the trillion-dollar company.
The Arizona-based employee – who uses the social media handle @Revengekkid – took to TikTok last week to share the inside information with curious viewers.
It’s unclear how long @Revengekkid has worked with Amazon, but he said in the TikTok video that he didn’t initially realize how fast the delivery driver job could be.
“They tell you that you can walk and relax all day, but in reality you have to run. . . or at least jog,” he said, referring to the large number of packages he was expected to deliver during a shift.
The second insider tip also referred to the frenetic pace of the post, with @Revengekidd claiming he would never finish on time if he took all of his allotted breaks.
“They say you can take breaks during the day – you have two breaks and one lunch. But they don’t tell you that if you take your breaks and your lunch you won’t be done in time,” he said.
The third and final detail the driver wanted to know about Amazon was the fact that some of their delivery vans don’t have air conditioning.
The video racked up thousands of views, prompting @Revengekkid to make a second video with three more tidbits about his location.
In this clip, the driver said he wanted to know how long it takes to deliver packages to apartment buildings as opposed to residences.
Secure entrances and complicated drop-off instructions inside apartment buildings often slow down the delivery process, he said.
Second, @Revengekidd said he wanted to know he had to help co-workers complete their deliveries if he happened to finish his shift early.
Finally, he looked at “group stops,” where multiple houses close to each other count as one delivery. He alleged that the tactic added to the amount of work he had to do.
The Post has reached out to Amazon to comment on @Revengekidd’s claims.
However, the employee argues that there are benefits to working with the e-commerce giant.
In a separate TikTok clip, he listed three things he loves about his job at Amazon.
The driver said he appreciated the fact that he still received his 40 hour salary per week, even though he finished his deliveries early and actually only clocked in 32 hours.
Additionally, @Revengekidd said he loved the independence of the job and the fact that “no one was on their a–” all day.
His third and favorite perk of working with Amazon is VTO — or voluntary time off — where employees can take unpaid time off without any kind of penalty.
