Teaches independence and encourages problem solving
Courier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 15 April 2017
A typical day would be biking from restaurants to the customers homes for the duration of the shift.
I learned to be much more independent (as I never had a direct supervisor following me) and I learned to problem solve without the help of a manager.
Management was kind the times I had seen them, but I spent almost no time around them, exclusively saw them for performance reviews.
The hardest part of the job was trying to remain safe. Cycling in Toronto can be a dangerous thing, even when following all the rules of the road.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the freedom. Management trusted employees to do their jobs to the best of their ability. The other benefit of this job was during slow time you were able to rest and even return home (if you lived in the city) while you waited for another order to come.
