Too many drivers

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They’ve hired too many drivers, lots of waiting around, often costs money to work.. they give you your schedule based on what they need, but since they hire too many drivers most shifts are 3 or 4 hours only .. only good as a small extra income.. don’t waste your time !

Fine place to work at not very hard job to do it pays fairly if you have a car that doesn’t consume a lot of fuel. Overall, it’s not bad place to work at

Sometimes it's just a waste of time

Skip is great if you just need to make a few extra bucks, but its not worth your time to rely on this to pay bills and such. It used to be a lot more flexible in terms of shifts and the pay keeps getting worse. It is really only worth your time if you are able to make at least $60 in a 3 hour shift. Otherwise, you are just burning your own gas for the good of their company.


Sign out any time


You might not get any orders

Awful Service - Do Uber

I signed up as a driver in 2018. Did it for a couple years. Then got emailed political garbage from them. So I left for uber. Just tried to come back to them but got HORRIBLE service from their operation team. They don't care about drivers. Plus it's shifts. Uber you sign in and out whenever you want. Door dash pays less than both but way better customer service from uber and dash. So done with skip driving and ordering.




Shifts. Politics. Bad service.

Don’t bother. Waste of time

No hourly wage. You make what you deliver. Pay out each day but takes up to 15 days for card to be on file. Think you get that fuel discount? Think again. You run your car and phone. You are paid what you make through how many order you deliver.


Can quit anytime


No hourly wage on top

Good experience in the delivery food service

What is the best part of working at the company?Working your own hours and any time I wanted to double shift they accommodated meWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?Sometimes the customer wouldn't be at home to except the order than would have to deal with customer service What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Awesome all you really dealt with was the customer and I have a ton of experience with customer service

Not Safe for me being Deaf to work.All guys (panhandlers) threatening to break my vehicle and slashed my tire. Police not going to arrests that panhandlers anywhere. Few houses turn lights off at the night when I dropped food off. They did not clean the snow of the walkside. Not happy with very limited orders numbers on long hours.

Fun place to earn a little extra cash, just don't treat it as a main source of emoloyment

Interview and company was not local, so was a bit difficult to explain why when they send you a trip and instructiins and lications and it takes 45 minutes to complete a trip. Lots of fake calls or hard to find addresses. Most did not tip.


Freedom to take or refuse jobs, days of work.


Have to have certain amount of cash and gas each shift, sometimes didn't go anywhere for a whole shift.

It was ok

Poor pay, pick your own schedule. Paid weekly. Get to listen to music and drive around. Don't really deal with angry customers in my experience. Tips

Working for SkipTheDishes is the sweat shop of the Western world.

Low pay due to lack of tips and long distance deliveries. If you refuse a long delivery with a low payout and your acceptance rate drops then you do not get top up bonus and have to deliver for less. The company forces you to take bad orders or else they punish you. If you have a successful start to your shift and get a couple good tips the algorithm will take you out of the delivery pool to ensure the deliveries go to other drivers. If you make $25 in the first 40 minutes and you notice there are no orders for for 20 minutes… that is why. No one should have to deliver for less that $1 per kilometre and I am working to make SkipTheDishes pay their drivers fairly. You can join us on Facebook to help out. Power in numbers.

Work life balance

Work life balance is great. Very few problems in the past 4 years. Any problems are quickly supported and dealt with by their team.Most orders average a $1 per km or more


Completely on ur schedule. Drop and pickup shift


Customer tips are what drives your rate of pay. Hit and miss

Poor Pay…Wear and Tear on car

With the price of gas it’s not worth it. Skip realize on the customers to tip, instead of a good base pay. If customers don’t tip you don’t break even. It should not be up to the customer weather we make decent money.


You wreak you vehicle for very low pay

Annoying & Stressful Experience

Its been more than 2 months now since I enrolled for Delivery Driver. They never responded me back even after me following up multiple times & paying them their bag & background fee. Its stressful as they don't care about what you might be going through. Ignorant & careless support.

Long hours little pay

Availability must be fully open to make semi decent wage. No compensation for ware and tare on vehicle or gas usage. Minimal pay on some orders makes drive not worth it


Long hours
Was this review helpful?

Barely enough with gas prices

Barely enough to get by. Cant get full time hours even if you have the availability. You can get decent hours for pt work but even if you need full time they always try to break it up and have to many people on the network at once and care more about making sure there is alot of security for them but not the same job security for hours for workers. They need to treat there long term workers and workers that want the hours with better standards and start showing tips agaibn if not only so employees know they dont steal tips as current setup is made to mask this. They never honor there wait time pay or redelivery top up pay. And should gove teo week shifts to people in advance not 1 week that comes out 3 days before you start.

Bad pay

Really bad pay and not worth it. I wouldn’t even bother. Especially now that prices are going up for everything there’s no point. Here and there good orders but when you have to pay for gas it’s not worth
Was this review helpful?

Not recommended

If you are looking for extra cash and a reason to write of your car okay...This is not a job for long term and the equipment you provide is not valued by the company and you will not be fairly compensated for the depreciation of your car or phone. In fact with the poor earning potential you will most likely not be able to repurchase your vehicle with the money you earn because of the lack of compensation. You also need to rely on tips, which are only 'good' about 20% of the time and 'okay' up to 50% of the time. As far as scheduling it is relatively simple but the lack of orders will make you want to go home early and then the corporation will punish you by giving you less shifts. This does not meet the expectation of being a contractor when you are required to cover shifts that do not pay enough.




poor pay for time put in.

Unfair unfair job opportunity

They hire to many drivers for zone which takes away the hours you are given each week, let’s just say they are making money but you will not if you don’t mind not making much money then this is a job for you and if a zone is full and you don’t live in that zone you can go to another which is unfair for the people that live in that zone.


You make some money


You get kicked out of your own zones from people that don’t live in that zone.
