Dispatcher (Former Employee), Pembroke Pines, FL – May 28, 2014
Pros: free deliveries at work
Co workers are great and easy to get along with. The managers are awesome! your hours are flexible. The food is delicious lol! i enjoyed my time there, i had fun with the customers and got to know them better. I learned how to multitask and manage time. it's a great company anyone would love!
Cons: uses your own car and gas, heavy reliance on tips for income
A typical day at work is very independent. You get to drive your own car without anyone else hovering over you. As long as you have texting and GPS capability along with a positive attitude and the ability to pay attention to details this job is pretty easy. You receive the order, text back that you accept the order, drive to the restaurant, check the – more... order for accuracy (the detail oriented part), then deliver it to the customer. The estimated delivery time is usually pretty generous, but even if you are running late all you have to do is call the customer and let them know. No problem! Everybody is really easy-going and it's nice to meet other drivers when you happen to be at the same restaurant waiting for orders. The hardest part is earning enough in tips to fill your gas tank for the next day, and lot of that has to do with customer service. Did you arrive on time/early? Did you call and speak politely? Did you smile and thank them at the door? The best part is the flexibility and getting paid weekly. If I only want to work one shift a week, I can do that. If I want to work doubles every day, I could do that too. Just give notice the Wednesday the week before and all is well. Tips are cashed out to you at the end of every shift/day! – less
Restaurant Courier (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FL – July 27, 2013
Pros: make your own schedule
Cons: sometimes the tips are shallow
This job is very flexible. You can make your own schedule in a week's advance, and work within the customer's demand. The money you make depends highly upon tips, so it's very important to be friendly and diligent with every order.
The management are understanding and caring to meet the needs of the employees, and take great care of making sure that – more... the drivers are receiving a good compensation for the time that they put in. – less
Mobile Waiter (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FL – September 17, 2012
This is a very relaxed organization of which to be a part. You're pretty much working solo most of the time. Management is fairly lenient on tardiness/absences. Even if you're not listed on the schedule, you're free to come in to work as you wish. The hardest part of the job is managing your vehicle. There are a lot of long distance deliveries (20+) – more... which add up in a week of work; it all depends on which dispatcher you have and how good they are. The amount of money you make is sort of 40/60 between your skill and knowledge of Tallahassee, and the adeptness of your dispatcher. Even slow days can be profitable with the right dispatcher. – less
Doorstep Delivery of Gainesville is an interesting place to work.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Gainesville, FL – September 2, 2012
Pros: get tips and the end of every worked day, get to see new places, and get to be outside
Cons: you pay for your own gas and the weather can be problematic i.e. very hot, very cold, stormy, etc.
Doorstep Delivery of Gainesville is a good place to work. The dispatchers (people who tell the drivers where to go) are fair and actively try to make sure all drivers get about the same amount of deliveries. There are 2 shifts (10:30am to 4pm and 4 pm to 10:30pm) and they are willing to let you work on your schedule as long as you work when you tell – more... them you will. If something comes up, once in a while as things do, they are also understanding and will work it out with you. A typical day at work is you wait until you get a text or call, go to the restaurant, check to make sure all the food is there and to the customer's specification, deliver the food, have the customer sign and pay if applicable, and repeat. I've learned the city much better. There's not much interaction with co-workers. We run into each other at restaurants sometimes, but that's about it. The hardest part of the job, for me, is sometimes having to wait for 30 minutes or more for the food to be prepared. The most enjoyable part of the job is going to new places, whether they be restaurants or neighborhoods. – less
