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

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

You get what you put in

You can make a living at this if you put your time and energy into it. I work seven days a week and get around 6 to 7 hundred a week. That’s not including fuel so take 100$ off and you’re still doing good. Even in times like this you can still make a good living.

You get what you give

You’re your own boss. There’s A LOT of couriers is it can be slow paced. Attempting to reach Courier support can be a nightmare. Over all, Not a terrible company to work for.

Skip the dishes is okay

Skip the dishes is okay. It sucks getting lots of 5-6dollar delivery’s.. exspecially when they added McDonald’s. It’s easy on the body, and the app is easy to work with. Sucks being called pizza boy.

Pros

Easy Money

Cons

Doesn’t pay very well with high fuel prices, and low tips

It's good for a side hustle

You mostly work with customers and restaurants, rarely see coworkers. Sometimes you talk to the dispatchers, which are a hit or miss. I do enjoy this job, but I do not rely on it. The pay can be very dependent on so many factors - the time of day, what day of week, whether you're a main driver or on call, and where you are in the town. I can make anywhere from $50 to $100 in a 4 hour shift. The price of gas basically makes it a necessity to do this in a fuel mileage-friendly car. It does do wear and tear, and there's always the possibilities of accidents (none of this being covered by skip).

Pros

choose your own hours, easy

Cons

can be boring, income is varied

Worst Employer in Grande Prairie

They should just name themselves SkipTheService.... MANY times will operators screw up order #'s or give you the incorrect delivery information. Late because of traffic? Call support line for help with directions? Too bad! get ready to be sidelined for the rest of the night. Or watch Operators hand pick the worst deliveries possible. Avoid this terrible, TERRIBLE company at all costs!

Pros

Flexible?

Cons

Literally everything else
