Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 10, 2016
Working for Postmates has been made a huge difference in my everyday life, from how i schedule my day to managing my profits more responsibly. Postmates allows you to create your own weekly schedules which has significantly improved my education plan, allowing more time to study one day and the next day to work.
Fun and easy job to work part time but pay can be low sometimes .
Courier Driver (Current Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – March 31, 2016
I currently work here and I love the fact you can make your own schedule which works for me because I'm gonna be going to school. I wouldn't use this job full time because of how inconsistent the pay is but for someone needing a part time job or going to school this will help you make the money you need. Some days go slow where you don't make much and don't get much tips and average around $10 and hour but some days you can make $15 to $20 an hour.
Vendor Account Manager, CS Lead (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – March 12, 2016
This was a great place to grow and learn to be a more dynamic Customer Service Manager. I was given many opportunities to prove my worth and were rewarded with advancements and ever increasing responsibilities, showing me that the company had faith and hope in myself and my abilities.
Opportunity, Professional Development, Positive Team Mentality
Long Hours, Excessive Overtime requirements, Commute
Courier (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 9, 2016
This was the coolest Job I had although it also had its times to where headaches occurred. I enjoyed bringing people their food whenever i was ready to turn on my Postmates App and take orders from people either getting up for college, work, or just want something to eat using the fairly new courier service.
New Food Places, New People, Nice Drives
Long Hours, Late for someones order even when i can't help it, Dealing with Traffic, App Crashes, Phone Problems, street Problems, Direction Problems, Running out of Time
Depending on your city and the demographics you can earn a lot of money at this company. I'm currently a bike messenger in Columbus, Ohio and I'm making over 100 dollars a day. You're able to work as much as you want and choose when you want to work. They pay you out 5 days from the day you worked. Overall this is the best job but like everything else theres a catch. The job security is not great as you're basically relying on customer reviews in order to maintain your job. So if you happen to deliver on campus, any pimple faced jerk kid can control your ability to earn money by giving you a low rating. You have to maintain a certain rating to continue working there.
The only reason I give Postmates 4 instead of 5 stars is due to job security, which is a lot more important than pay. The average an hour is between 15-20
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 3, 2016
Postmates is good for someone who's looking to making some extra income on the side. Hours are really flexible. You make your own schedule. The work is pretty straightforward. Jobs can pretty hectic. Pay is decent. I make an average of 10 to 15 dollars an hour.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – January 17, 2016
Postmates is very unprofessional, I am happy that I experienced working with this company. They only care about the bottomline, turnover is high and if you want to be in the maze of deceit turn in an application. I am a realist I have been #1 at this company and still they treat you badly....good job if your in transit...terrible career choice.
Postmates is a wonderful place to interact with new people over the Charlotte area
Delivery driver to local charlotte area (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – March 8, 2016
Working at postmates i was able to explore new places and interact with new people. The hardest part of the job was balancing time. Everyone was friendly and its always great to put a smile o someones ace. :)
Independence to maintain my life outside of work as well as have fun while making money.
Independent Courier (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 15, 2016
As an independent courier, I set my own hours of operation. I could choose to work one hour a day or twelve. I would log onto the postmates app from my phone when I am ready to start my work for the day. When a dispatch comes through, I would accept the job and proceed to the pick up point, which could vary from a supermarket to library (whatever the customer is requesting to be picked up). Management was always a phone call away and they did their best to fix a problem, if one should ever come up. The hardest part of my job was navigating through NYC especially during the rush hours. I enjoyed every bit of my job. I liked the freedom, seeing new places and meeting new people.
Guaranteed work, freedom to set your own schedule.
No benefits, there wasn't any gas/mileage allowance.
Driver / shopper (Former Employee) – Los angeles – February 23, 2016
Do not work for this company, ever. It's a scam. You won't make Diddly squat! The stress and pay is not worth the flexibility. They don't even log your real miles or pay you for the actual miles you drive. Run as fast as you can. From all these demand economy jobs. Don't do it!
courier driver (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – January 8, 2016
I took the courier job to make a bit of extra cash and have the ability to make my own schedule. I am in a car and sometimes parking can be rather challenging but the upside of working on your own is a huge plus. If you have a good attitude and like customer service this job will suit you well. Once in a while people stiff you with no tip but you still might make $6-$8 per run. Then there are the customers who appreciate speedy and convenient service and tip well. Postmates customer support is very responsive and on the ball. This gig has given me the chance to see many restaurants I was not familiar with and get to know other parts of my beautiful city! The downside for me is the inability to predict the $ I will make per shift. If it's a slow afternoon you may only make $20.
Flexibility, working on your own, easy and enjoyable
courier (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – December 11, 2015
They say you can make 25.00 an hour but you really only make about 9.00 an hour. You use your own car, so you're reasponsible for the ware and tare from driving all day and you have to pay for your own gas. I don't think it's worth the pay unless you really enjoy driving around all day for not that much pay.
Low pay, pay for own gas, responsible for own ware and tare on vehicle.
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Remote – November 21, 2015
An independent contractor job, customers place their food orders through the Postmates app and we retrieve it through the Postmates Workbench where we call in to the merchant and order the food for the customer, enter the required information, and then that's all.
Remote and flexible hours
Theirs a lot of set rules and a specific way you have to do everything.
Courier (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – December 31, 2015
Get into my car turn on my device and sign on to schedule and begin working. Good to better your customer service skills. no co workers. Traffic is the hardest part of the job.You get to drive and learn about traveling and lots of different locations.
Remote Support Technician (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – December 4, 2015
I enjoy working for Postmates. There schedule is flexible and the management is helpful and courteous. One of the best parts is that by working with the remote support team you are able to work anywhere you have cellphone service and an internet connection to a computer.

I would organize the book room. Move books, clean shelves, help stack books in order for students starting their school year. Making sure all the kids had what they needed and that all books were in good enough condition.
