I have noticed as it the start of the Christmas season for Amazon the full time agency driver numbers are increasing with a noticeable drop in flex blocks at the Swindon, wiltshire depo has anyone else seen this at other depo’s
I’ve also noticed a huge drop in available blocks over the last week at the Glasgow depot. Up until then the offer page in the app would have between 4 and 8 blocks available throughout the day, now it’s empty. It’s ironic because every other day I seem to be getting an email from Amazon telling me how this is the busiest time of the year with more blocks available.
I think it is happening all over as theale depot is the same, however was told that it is because the “flex” delivery teams are making too many mistakes so Amazon has clawed back lots from all depots and are employing staff themselves.
I’m at Theale too and have only been given 1 offer and correctly the flex drivers all over has made too many mistakes to get accepted for all of the Amazon parcel loads so they have taken back I beleive almost 60% which has been tendered out to local “man with a van” agencies. I also had a message suggesting that i got a bigger car as i would have “more possible blocks” available to me..
