    I've been working for UPS for over a year now and id like to get a second job. I wanted to know if working for Amazon while working at UPS would be "conflict of interest". I don't want to risk losing my job at UPS .. would it be a problem to work at Amazon as a second job while employed with UPS as well?

    I'm not sure about conflict of interest but you probably won't be able to due to DOT.

    The OP didn't bother to mention what his/her job at UPS is.

    You're fine. In fact, you don't need to mention it to anyone at UPS. Your second job is personal.

    I know of a package delivery driver that does Amazon flex in his personal vehicle on Sundays...

    they're doing away with flex in favor of DSP drivers though, so it may become slim pickins

    I don't see the big deal.

    We're a technology company that delivers packages.

    They're an online retailer.

    Good idea, just hop into the Willamette river and swim directly across to the amazon building on the other side.

    UPS won’t be an issue. Amazon might not like it though. Years ago I worked for FedEx Ground on noonday (as a shifter) and UPS on twilight. Back then FedEx was still run more by RPS and loved UPSers. But once corporate FedEx got their slimey entrails completely into RPS they implemented their policy on hiring UPSers. Which was to NOT hire them. I think Amazon will do the same thing in the near future. Maybe you’ll be grandfathered in like I was at FedEx Ground.
