Flexible job but it does NOT bring in much money- at ALL

Skip used to be great during the first few years that it was starting up, but it's now become very difficult to even make enough money during a shift to deem it worth it in the first place. In this economy, with these gas prices, a courier does not make nearly enough to consider going out for a shift even worth it. Most customers don't tip due to one bad experience they've had before you, which in turn ruins your ability to make any good money. Getting orders throughout a shift isn't very consistent now anymore either because of how many couriers have been hired and are thrown onto the same shift. This probably would be a good job for someone who is retired and looking for a job to make enough money to treat themselves to a nice dinner every week, but not even as a second job for someone who needs to make money to pay bills. Don't waste your time if you need the money, get a real job that will take into account your taxes at the same time.

Pros

Flexible schedule, work alone, paid direct deposit weekly

Cons

Small orders, unresponsive customers, not enough orders in a shift

Chill Job

Being a Courier was nice and chill. I just don’t want to deal with the car maintenance side of things. They offer you help while on shift when needed. Instructions tell you what to do exactly through the Courier app.

Pros

Work when you want

Cons

Will take a toll on your vehicle

Poor business practise

They've hired too many drivers, the orders get spread too thin. You wont make enough to even cover gas unless you drive a small car. They try to incentivise you with courier exclusive deals like getting your taxes done at a lower cost at h&r block, and if you keep your acceptance rate at 80%+, you'll have a minimum order amount (usually around $5 or $6 per order.) But you'll be lucky to get 3 orders per shift!

Pros

Can log out anytime, no actual work "place"

Cons

Low order amounts, and not enough orders.

Don't even think signing up

Come work for skip if you want to waste your time and money. This is a very terrible job. There are too many drivers, it is so hard to wait for orders in the car specially in the winter time. Most people do not give tip and the transit pay is so low for a very far location. The management should limit drivers in one shift so drivers will have a lot of orders. It sucks getting orders at McDonalds, you usually wait atleast 10 minutes for an order.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Waste of time and money
