Terrible waste of time and gas
Courier/Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 5, 2017
This is how terrible postmates is. My first day was ruined by a glitch on the app - zero deliveries. My second day I had 1 delivery in 2.5 hours on call. My third day, I was on call from 4:00pm to 9:00pm on a Saturday. Had 2 successful deliveries, one of which sent me to the wrong restaurant so I had to call the customer to find out where it was at. One delivery that was canceled en route to the restaurant for an unknown reason, another that was canceled because the restaurant did not have what the customer ordered, which I actually did get a small cancellation payout. I made a total of $18.86 with zero tips. That comes out to $3.77 an hour plus gas and wear and tear on my car. On top of that, I will owe social security 13% of that when I file taxes for this year. Do not walk away from postmates, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!!!!
