Amazon Prime Now hiring delivery drivers in S’pore at S$25 per hour

Gotta go fast.

By Guan Zhen Tan | July 28, 2017

Online retail giant Amazon launched Amazon Prime Now in Singapore on July 26, to much fanfare — and some troubles.

One of the service’s main features is its one to two-hour deliveries: While one-hour delivery is limited to selected areas, two-hour delivery is available across all delivery areas.

With the speedy features, it wasn’t too much of a surprise that the local demand overwhelmed the e-commerce app.

The situation, however, will hopefully improve in the coming days, as Amazon Prime is apparently hiring delivery drivers, as seen in the following post.

Hi All, Amazon is opening up another round of recruitment for Project Speed!

*kindly note that the company will not be paying for your car rental, parking fee, ERP & petrol. But each Drivers are being protected by work man injury claim.

Is it the legit Amazon?

If you’re thinking that this might be some shady looking Facebook group, it is legit as confirmed by this Facebook post:

Finally!! The day that we have been waiting for has arrived!!!

The Graveyard Shift have been working with Adecco & Amazon on a secret project we called “Project Speed”. A total of about 50 Graveyard Shift members were involved in this project…

And now, we are happy to say that this project that we are working on is “Amazon Prime Now”! The app have been released in Singapore yesterday and chosen Singapore as its 1st country in South East Asia to have Amazon Prime Now!

So, if you’re interested in working for Amazon Prime Now in Singapore, you may contact them there.

For the rest of us, let’s hope this translates to speedier deliveries and orders fulfilled.
