It does not worth to work, stay away

If you earn over $50 in 2 hours, app blocks you from working and it does not send you any delivery. It means you have earned enough for today. We should not make so much money. We always have to be poor. Lol

Pros

Easy to work

Cons

Not enough money

Scam! They want you to buy Thermal Bags before you're hired!

Unprofessional and Unrealistic! They want me to purchase Thermal Bags and pay for a Background Check before I'm hired. And there's no guarantee of being hired. And also said that, they'd refund me after, if I didn't get hired. That not only doesn't make sense, but is also a scam. To have to potentially figure out how to get a refund and deliver the Thermal Bags back to them would be a huge inconvenience and waste of time out of my day. They're forcing people to buy into their business, without actually hiring them first! Is that even legal? I wonder how many people have bought the Thermal Bags and were not hired and SOL!

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Scam, Unprofessional, Unrealistic

Not worth it, gas too expensive

There should be a $7 minimum delivery fee! tons of orders only pay you $3 and no tip. Unbelievable how many people don’t tip their delivery drivers. Finding parking, waiting in restaurants, using gas for $3 orders. Don’t bother

Pros

None

Cons

Doesn’t pay enough

Poor working environment

1.I started with them as a driver with great excitment. But it didn't lasted long. I read some bad reviews about them, but ignored thinking it may not be same for everyone. 2.They blocks you from working if you have earned around 50$ or so. They tells you that you have earned enough for today.lolz 3.Calls you on your personal time to come and work. 4.Not at all flexible. You have to tell your schedule to them prior 1 week and you are still not sure whether you will be able to make any money or not. 5.Poor food packaging with zero standards. They don't have any facilities to get their food sealed or the restaurant linked with them don't care for anything. Their orders are messed up. When you report them about a messed order they don't give care ,but when some customer complains about wrong order or missing thing,they will start blaming the driver straight forward. 6.Some times they give you a order to pickup and sudden wipes off your board leaving you in blind.

Pros

Zero

Cons

Better work somewhere else

Not worth the time

If you are looking for a job that requires you to drive an average of 15 -20 klms to make a delivery for $3.50 then this is the job for you! There aren't any zones so you could be 15 klms away from the restaurant and get the order. The average time to make your delivery is 40 minutes because of all the driving. They have a time that you have to have the food at the customers resident but it takes so much time just to get to the restaurant making you late. I do not recommended this job to anyone that needs an income. Total waist of your valuable time. After working 30 hours in a week I made a whopping $175.00 after fuel cost. That's $5.83 per hour. I recommend that you stay away from this job.

Pros

None

Bad Company

I have worked with skip for sometime now through the numerous app issues as well as the network going down, but this company is bad they would rather suspend your account then take owning the fact that the app is broken. I am not able to sign into the curior app it freezes at the splash screen all the time, in order to start a shift 4 days in a row and all this company would prefer to do is hang up on you not provide any assisstance with the issue and then ban you from the network. For someone that really depends on this job for a living and this company does this to them, this WOULD BE EXTREMELY INFURIATING. You don't actually have control over when you stop your shifts you are locked in, if you do need stop your shift for what ever the reasons they get pretty aggressive with you about it. I though I was a private contractor and I can't start or stop a shift when ever I'd like? Pay is pretty bad, even though there was an increase but I wouldnt know about this since I cant get into the app as well as they banned me on the network.

Pros

Finding new places to eat

Cons

This company as a whole
