Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
make your own schedule, ability to drop shifts a minute before start with no ramifications. The flexibility is excellent. The amount of deliveries depends on your own personal city or "Market" and you will learn the best times to deliver in your own experience. Skip pays a minimum that varies from place to place, usually $3-5/delivery. The customer tips are where you make your money. You are reliant on them, but you can't count on them.You are responsible for all costs incurred while on the job, such as gas, wear+tear, accidents, food, thermal bags etc. You will be considered a contractor, so nothing will ever be on them.I recommend as a SIDE HUSTLE, do not recommend full time. The work just isn't there in my market. Restaurant staff can be rude, as they treat you like one of their own, when in reality you aren't. It's a lucky day when things break even and people are pleasant.


Super flexible hours


Responsible for any expenses incurred, Frequently rude restarant staff. (area dependant), Frequent non-tippers, low tippers (<$1)(area dependant), Occasionally incompetent agents when you need assistance, Sitting around for a while in your car waiting for orders, Increased wear on phone, car and mental health

Not enough orders, poor support, low wages

Working for skip is not very profitable, some orders barely cover the price of gas. Courier support can be un-helpful as well. Sometimes you have to wait for 30 minutes to collect an order, which is usually subsidized by Skip however subsidies are rarely applied without having to extensively call skip to remind them.

I learned how to be pacient, the hardest part of the job was not knowing if you would get an order or not cause if u dont get an order match you don't get paid. The most enjoyable part was learning about more streets around where I live


knowing your way around the city


not always getting paid and heavy on gas

No comments please .

Disorganized, sends you around the city when you could just be located in one part of it. instead of wasting gas. That makes it very hard to make any money. i did not enjoy my experience working there as much as i thought i would

Don’t waste your time with skip the dishes

When you need to call them to resolve an issue, such as why didn’t you get your amount deposited. It will take you days to get a response. There don’t care about the the courier driver. Total waste of time


Free food that’s it, if order gets messed up


The worse place I’ve ever worked for

Fun job with flexible hours and decent pay

Wow, there sure are a lot of people complaining about this job. I don't understand why; I absolutely love it. I worked from 7:30AM to just after midnight today with hardly any breaks, not because I had to but because I wanted to. I'm giving the company a high rating because I love the job, not because I think the company is particularly great, although they haven't really given me a reason to dislike them, either. A typical day at work is to visit many restaurants and deliver a lot of food to people. Occasionally, there's no order to take, so I use that time to run personal errands, or catch up on my email or whatever. Management? What management? You don't have a manager, you work as an independent contractor, meaning you're your own boss, so if you don't like your manager, better talk to the guy in the mirror. Not sure about "workplace culture"; you're not really interacting with co-workers much, so I don't know about any "culture". The hardest part of the job is.... wait, this job is the easiest I've ever had. There are no hard parts that I can think of. The most enjoyable part of the job is I get to drive my car listening to music and get paid for it. I didn't enter a salary because this isn't a salary job. For End Date I said "I currently work here", even though I don't. You start "working here" again every day and finish "working here" at the end of every shift. I don't know why this stupid form is asking me to rate the CEO. What employee ever even meets the CEO at ANY company?


Work whatever hours you want. Be your own boss. Drive your car and get paid for it.


Can't think of anything. I guess if you don't like driving, or are terrible at it, that's a Con, and you might want to try some other job.

Flexible part-time work

Hours are very flexible based on your schedule Pick up shifts whenever your schedule allows you to 4-hour shifts make for short work day, with lots of time to focus on other acitivities


Flexible work schedules


Income varies day-to-day, never constant

Decent Side gig for sure

So.. after 275 deliveries in 6 months Average 3.50 tip Average with tip = 11.57 per delivery. You can usually do at least 2 deliveries per hour. SOMETIMES more if you're lucky and find parking easily

Great work if you have criminal record.

Good to work skip as part time , I liked working skip only problem is finding parking in downtown . This job will be nothing with the tip. if you put many hours its worthy.

Worst experience. Don't join it.

Nobody tells you about the policies first and if something happens they will ask you to do it as it is their policy. The team will never help you and people will call to harass you that if you don't do something according to what they say, they will block your account to teach you lesson.




Low wage, Team members don't have any knowledge, Keep track of you money because they promise you and then don't give you that money

the worst company ever to work with

This company the worst company ever I worked with they put a lot of stress on you and it is their mistakes. really had experience and really bad staff worst manager. I would like to send a message to people out there do not waste your time or your car life period on this job. I have been trying to get some shifts for the last 3 weeks but they tell me there are no shifts for you and no one know the reason. Every time I talk to a worker they tell me different things that they don't make any sense at all


every single thing in this company is bad

Terrible pay, make you drive back and forth across city, no delivery zones, the cut rates, try and force you to work past your shift. Dishonest company exploits its drivers
