Easy, convenient job but not good pay

It's an ok job. You get to drive around, listen to music, pick up and drop off orders. Not too much stress. Problems would be that IF you have an issue with something and contact Skip via email, you won't get much help. They reply with automated responses basically. Sometimes I think there's a language barrier and they don't even understand your question and give you a wacky answer that's no help. They're pretty helpful on the job though, through Chat if its to do with an order. Money wise, it has to be super busy to make money. Weekdays, I barely make $50 in a 4 hour shift. Consider the gas you just used and you've made a whopping $10/hr. You have to decide what it's worth to you. On a busy weekend, it improves a bit. The good thing about it is you can work as little as you want. Getting shifts though and replying on how busy it is to make money the money you need..that's the tricky part. If you need a quick $40 for something that week, this is your job. But you can't really rely on it to pay big bills or rent. Also, remember you're an independent contractor so don't expect any kind of benefits, help with a car accident, or to use them as a reference.

Pros

Drive, listen to music, drop shifts when you need to.

Cons

Not enough shifts, not busy enough, uses a lot of gas.

Good schedule.

Was a descent place to work and it gave me the flexibility for a work life balance. I could set my own schedule. And the support team there is second to none.

A good way to make a quick buck on the side

I would recommend Skip the Dishes for anyone who is already working full or part time, and needs a little extra cash on the side. It is possible to make a living wage doing this, but beware of competition in your city! This is purely commission-based, so there will be days or weeks where you make less than other weeks, and you may have to work more hours to make a living wage some weeks. Also be aware that you are using your own vehicle for this, and it can take quite a toll on it, so make sure to maintain your vehicle, keep track of how many KM's you drive, and save your fuel receipts! You will need that stuff for taxes. My recommendation would be to try Skip the Dishes, but don't commit full-time until you're sure you can make it work.

Pros

Flexible work hours, fun to do

Cons

Stiff competition, really hard on vehicles

Review situated below

Delivering is fine but the pay structure is not good. Should not have the gratuities added onto your total income and there should be a more balanced shift scheduling. Thanks

Pros

Able to somewhat choose your scheduled shift

Cons

Long waiting times for pickup at some restaurants and not compensated well for time wasted
