Very slow, but easy enough.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Skip is very slow most days. Getting paid is notguaranteed so if you get no orders, you make no money. They offer nothing in terms of gas money or compensation when you don’t get orders. Most days I make between 8-10$ an hour, which is not nearly enough to get by. While Skip would be good as a side job, it is definitely not secure enough to have as your main employment.

Pros

Easy, make your own schedule

Cons

Very low pay, wears down on your vehicle, mundane

Toxic business

Good delivery options.

Good company to work for if you need extra money. Sometimes it takes a while to get the orders, but once they start it is fine. I wish they compensated their drivers for the gas.

Pros

Schedule

Cons

No enough tips

Uncaring people! Could care Less about their drivers

I would not suggest Anybody waste their time with this company!!!And to realize these companies are ripping off businesses with a 25% to 30% surcharge on Every order they get while also ripping off drivers in many cases on calls out of town that are just not worth your time. Then if you turn down 2 or more calls they punish the driver with less calls for the day! It is Absolutely Pathetic!!!!!Not a very busy company.Their app doesn't work properly. It's always asking if I am still here After I've been sitting for an hour or 2 waiting for a call.At the same time while I'm sitting at a restaurant waiting for a call, I could watch 6 or 7 drivers go into that same place and pick up Many orders while I sit and do Nothing!!!Then when you contact their people through the online lack of support, these people have No Clue what they are talking about! They just send you pre-scripted notes telling you what you should or shouldn't do to help Yourself!!!They have NO CLUE how to help the drivers!!!There is SO MUCH Wrong with this company you have No Idea!!!Don't Waste Your Time!

Pros

None

Cons

Their drivers mean Absolutely Nothing to them!

Patience pays off……

If your patient, this is a great gig. Easy money….and flexible scheduling. No brainer. You also have the option to pass on an order and take a break when you need too. No physical Boss to report to. Driver help thru app is quick and generally very helpful and polite.

Pros

Work when you want?… or schedule your hours

Cons

Some shifts are slow, some times app acts up, some restaurant staff are rude..ignore those type

Good schedule.

Was a descent place to work and it gave me the flexibility for a work life balance. I could set my own schedule. And the support team there is second to none.

A good way to make a quick buck on the side

I would recommend Skip the Dishes for anyone who is already working full or part time, and needs a little extra cash on the side. It is possible to make a living wage doing this, but beware of competition in your city! This is purely commission-based, so there will be days or weeks where you make less than other weeks, and you may have to work more hours to make a living wage some weeks. Also be aware that you are using your own vehicle for this, and it can take quite a toll on it, so make sure to maintain your vehicle, keep track of how many KM's you drive, and save your fuel receipts! You will need that stuff for taxes. My recommendation would be to try Skip the Dishes, but don't commit full-time until you're sure you can make it work.

Pros

Flexible work hours, fun to do

Cons

Stiff competition, really hard on vehicles

Review situated below

Delivering is fine but the pay structure is not good. Should not have the gratuities added onto your total income and there should be a more balanced shift scheduling. Thanks

Pros

Able to somewhat choose your scheduled shift

Cons

Long waiting times for pickup at some restaurants and not compensated well for time wasted

People don't tip

Youhave to rely on people giving you a tip, for getting their food from the specified store, because you don't cover the travel expenses (gas, and/or food if you get hungry during the shift, or if you want to think long term having to change tires and maintenance on the work car when needed, it adds up), from a 5$ sandwich delivery, or when you order off a store that gives free delivery over 20$ or 25$, the driver gets close to nothing on that order, it's like everyone is fighting for scraps, and it's frustrating. There is also rating but no one does that, they just order food and that's all.

Pros

you choose what shifts you want to work

Cons

people don't tip

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

Low wage, run down your car for pennies.

Low pay, run your vehicle into the ground. 1/5 for driver support. They seem to do the bare minimum. Hard to get info from if you need government help.

Pros

Flexible hours (you set the days you want to work)

Cons

Garbage pay.. You aren't guaranteed shifts on your open days.

Cons

non suitable for a living wage job

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.

Not fun and super stressful

If you're planning in doing skip I wouldn't suggest you doing it. It was fun before the pandemic but right now alot of people joined skip and skip should be fair about it. Sometime you'll get a schedule but without any order at all and it looks like the value overflows more than the actual people that have shifts. They logged me out of my account and says max courier and I have a regular shift which is bs. Would not recommend at all.

Pros

Flexible schedule

Cons

Not enough orders and too stressful

There is no order inside the warehouse, no motivational behaviors, people are completely unprofessional as supervisors. I hope they get better management in the future

Trabajo a tu ritmo.

You work in your available time, as a skipthedishes worker I feel satisfied with the schedules since you have the option to choose your hours to work. The only bad thing is that clients often do not give you the incentive for your service and that discourages the worker, you stop spending time with your family to provide a service that is not well paid.

Pros

adapted to your time

Cons

long waiting times, poor remuneration from the client

Worst company

Their courier help team is rude and won’t respond in time not at all beneficial to couriers. Some restaurants take really long time to prepare your order and you don't get reimbursement for that. The courier chat is even further headache. They won’t even respond in time and if they do they are very rude and their is no way of going around them. Usually they only respond with automated messages only. If you skip the order they lower your acceptance rate and gives you less orders.

Pros

No pros

Cons

Not enough pay, no support for couriers, greedy management, not worth it, rude management, slow chat system
