Food Courier Driver in Langley, BC
Good for flexibility, but that's about itWith current local gas prices, this job does not pay enough. I have to work multiple different delivery apps just to make minimum wage, and even then it's not guaranteed. Support is not very helpful and they often misunderstand issues I run into on the job.However, it's very forgiving with flexibility. If needed, you can simply drop a shift right before it starts, and you can clock out during if something comes up. Good as a part-time, extra money sort of thing. Not as a reliable job.

It's A Start If You Need A JobAs with any customer service job, you're going to deal with your share of rude customers and restaurant owners. Be prepared to have your intelligence questioned and occasionally be insulted. The job is very fast paced and can be pretty stressful and overwhelming especially if you work during peak hours or on holidays. Team leaders were friendly and fairly helpful but trying to get in contact with anyone from HR will have you running around in frustration and you likely won't reach anyone. Definitely a start if you're a student and need to earn some money.

Run, far far awayThis company is pathetic to work for, more often than not you sit for hours on end not getting matched to orders. When one is ready willing and capable of taking orders it’s a complete waste of my time to sit and be available and receive nothing in return
Great for a student but the pay is unstable.Being able to essentially choose when you work is really helpful for going to to school. It's also great when trying to make plans.But you don't get paid an hourly wage at all and rely entirely on the volume of orders and generosity of customers.Also skip gives out orders based on acceptance rate over your last 10 offers. So if they give you a string of really bad orders and you rightfully decline them, you will get less orders.
Make your own hours is niceI'm glad I started working part time for skip the dishes. It allowed me to work elsewhere at a place that had sparatic hours, so having the ability to custom my shifts was great.
