Good job for a student, not a career.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – 6251 Philips Hwy, Jacksonville, FL 32216 – April 22, 2015
This company was an intermediary service for restaurants that did not typically deliver in the area. The company had nearly 100 different local restaurants that it handled taking orders from and delivering the food.
Show up, wait for an order, communicate which phase of the order you are on with the office, preform the steps (Go to restaurant, pick up food, check food, deliver food) and repeat. Very simple. You were fighting traffic and the alarming frequency of management at the restaurants lying to you about the completeness of the customers orders.
The primary income was through tips which were generally favorable. Quality of service was important, and you had to put in a minimum amount of care to actually make it worth doing. The hidden cost of wear and tear on a personally owned vehicle however, was unfavorable.
I had issues with the senior-level staff at the company. The owner of this location did not seem very interested in his own business, and when working dispatch would often make mistakes. I once delivered the same order twice, despite telling him I had completed the order. He both had to see that and then push the order again to the restaurant. I do not know how this happens. There were other issues in which because he was not there to open the office, we were required to go out and preform our duties without the proper equipment.
Easy work, Alone time
Wear-and-tear, Poor management
