I have worked for Skip for about 2 years. During this period I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of teams. The sky is the limit, and I have had opportunities in roles that I had no previous experience in. It has been great for my own progression, and I would recommend for anyone looking to work in a tech startup.
Opportunities for growth. Performance tracking and recognition. Excellent training.
There is a bit of bias if you are friends with management, It could be better if you stood out based on your own merit rather than the connections you have.
Courier Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 5 August 2018

Fun workplace even though the management is not well organized. Great teams and managers are very helpful. The best part of the job is to interact with different customer whether through calls or chats. It is a privilege working for SkipTheDishes.
More like #skipsowhite #skipthejoboffer if you are not a white or Indian person, your chances are any promotion/ advances are zero to none. The managers are deathly afraid of the supervisors who basically run the show and treat the agents worse than the garbage at the roadside. There are no raises given even after working for a year and you can kiss any work - life balance good bye as you are expected to work any and all shifts given, regardless of your availability.
Driver/Delivery (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 July 2018
company seems like they don't care when you start your shift , they can become very useless when your on shift and you call for help with something ,some of the girls try to pick argument with is driver when we call are try to get help, the way how i see this don't think they will be in business long , when you make your shift they give you what they feels like when you call they says they dont do shift the computer do it!!! dont work here run for the hills wear tear on your car doesnt worth it.
Food Courier (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 July 2018
Would recommend anyone who is looking for extra side work. I would get into the zone of that day 5-10 mins early and wait for a job to come up after signing in and basically go to and from jobs through out the shift. I learned street names and areas of the city by memory, memorized where all the hot spots are, how to get to and from restaurants to communities in a time effective manner. The hardest part of my job was figuring out where I can take restroom breaks. The most enjoyable part of the job is how easy it is for someone like me to pick up shifts when I need it the most and how laid back it is.
Just good extra income for paying at least some bills
Courier Driver (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 June 2018
Not recommended as "the only job of course", its for an extra monthly income. Pls do not complain it was our choice to join the skip team we need some patience.So far my experience is good especially I'm always brought by the app to Downtown wherein I got to deliver in less than 2 km order after order until the end of my shift. As a person who has family of small kids to support this is a big help rather than having 2 jobs that might get conflict sometimes. I do not feel tired since I love driving. I have a full time job and skip is a good extra thing to do than sit in the house doing nothing for max 4hrs a day.
A typical day is picking up food from restaurants and delivering them to customers around Winnipeg. What I have learned is how to get around the city because I am driving around, delivering food, so I get knowledge of the area I deliver in.
Driver (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 June 2018
Just forget this slave job , don't waste your time , your car and your nerves. If you have an electric car maybe you'll make $10/hr. Don't expect any support when delivering orders, you're on your own!
Total disrespect for drivers from head office staff
Driver (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 7 June 2018
In Wpg the head office staff seem to make a game of ordering food from the most difficult locations in terms of traffic and construction and then making drivers wait downstairs. Include the fact that office staff are the worst tippers a driver deals with a driver effectively lose $ on every HO delivery. If HO had any sense of ethical management they would 1) control where staff can order from and when ie Rush Hour 2) allow drivers to deliver to a single location ( drop off) without waiting for the staff member to come down 3) monitor where staff order from. Take the job only if begging on the street is your only other alternative.
Skipthedishes (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 1 June 2018
They allow you to drop the delivery/order so if you see no tip or low transit pay and a far drive you can drop it. No one should be allow to drop any order and management need to be more fair. Why would you work for this company making 60 dollars on a 4 hour shift?
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 1 June 2018
The only good part of the job is the people you work with. Hours of operation are constantly changing with no notice and are expected to work which ever hours they choose. They ask you to submit your availability 3 weeks in advance, but you often don't get your schedule until the week, or sometimes a few days before. Management is a complete mess. They expect employees to go above and beyond but give absolutely no incentive to do so.
If you don't mind having no personal life, and working in a highly disorganized environment, this is the place for you.
