You might want to SKIP...Skip the dishes
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 4 November 2017
There is a reason everyday in Vancouver(probably most other cities) the radio airwaves are full of Skipthedishes,ads recruiting food delivery drivers. The promise of a flexible schedule and paid weekly sounds great. And yes it is true, but the bottom line is you are lucky to make the minimum wage.
You are not an employee you are an independent contractor. So you are responsible for taxes paid, you car costs, fuel , insurance and repair and incidentals like parking meters.
Not every customer tips and most are not overly generous with tips. The fee you make for deliveries is very low and most times hardly covers your cost of driving from your location , to the restaurant and
then to the customer. Then there is your time. You actually never get compensated for it.
Management is young and suspect. You are not well treated and really there are no benefits working with skip.
