Not Bad Part Time

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This is good for a side hustle. It’s pretty easy to navigate the app. Check in is imperative. So make sure if you are not sure, get help. The staff is very helpful. If you forfeit too many offers, you see less of the big priced offers. You are your own boss. Don’t forget that you have to do your own taxes. You can make $400+ a week easy. Training would be beneficial but it’s a learn as you go type thing. The deliveries start from close to the station and out. I wish there were more locations. You have the option to use the app GPS or outside GPS. I recommend outside GPS bcuz the app GPS still has too many kinks to be fixed. Although they don’t pay you per mile, they partnered with another app so you can calculate deductions for miles driven while at work.

Cons

They don’t pay you per mile or reimburse you for tolls.

It’s a good job with flexibility

Offers you the flexibility you need without having to sacrifice a lot of pay. It’s a fun job that allows you to be in your own space and your own vehicle without having supervisors breathing down your neck.

It's a under the table job where you get to set your own schedule.

I like this job because it's very flexible and convenient. The tips when delivering groceries are the be part. You get to keep 100% of tips along with pay. The logistics blocks are good as well the pay a flat rate from about 69.00 to a max of 115.00 depending on how many hours and packages you deliver and what's good about that is if you go over the hours you signed up for delivering packages you will be compensated for the time you went over.

Self employed /app easy enough

This is easy to pick up.. You go online and see if work slots available and just accept if it suitable. Unfortunately you could be traveling any where to start delivering upon can depend if you job worth it or you not make it worth ya time. Unfortunately some jobs cost more than worth.. Done days it easy money.. Is luck of the draw. If you get there and refuse a round it will go against you regardless if cost not worth while

Pros

Freedom to choose if you want to work onapp

Cons

Destinations could be traveling 45 mins brekkie first drop off, no van.. Pen vechile and pay set rate of slot.. No fuel cost

Easy place, you pick your schedule and hours

Good place to work for a side job or short term. Pick your own schedule and work at your own pace.

Its an easy job to do, but even when gas prices go up they do not pay you more.

The job is pretty easy in itself. The most packages you get is around 40. But its a nice time to just drive around and deliver packages. Although some of the employees handing out the carts can be very rude.

Pros

Choose your own schedule. Small schedules

Cons

They dont pay you more when gas prices go up

Very good part time job

I've worked self employed for many years so fully understand what you can and can't claim for.I've only done flex for 3 months but it's a very good part time job. Yes you need a fuel float because you can easily do 100 plus miles a shift. HMRC allow 45p per mile for first 10000 miles and 25p per mile over 10k. I'd highly recommend flex, I've really enjoyed the job and hope it continues.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

City centres

Love this job. Highly reccomend.

I would definitely recommend this job to someone like myself who has children and is a stay at home mom but wants to help out where I am able to. I can pick and choose when I want to work based off of when I have someone to keep my kids. The pay is good, the job is not hard, and you don’t have to work if you don’t want to. Also getting paid 2 times a week is nice.

Pros

Good pay, flexible hours, easy work

Cons

No grade period for being late, Some things are 100% out of your control even if you arrive early to pick up.

Flexible hours, paid weekly, no gas reimbursement, high high mileage on vehicle

Not worth it when you subtract at least $25 gas, they send you an hour away almost every time so two more hours on the clock not paid, Wear and tear on the car more oils changes and tune ups and tires get worn really fast. They changed how you get your blocks so now you can’t get the same schedule everyday especially day shifts. They give you 35 apartments to do in 3 1/2 hours most downtown with nowhere or far to park takes so much time and you go way over time walking to find the apartment once you gain access if no locker

Pros

Can pick hours

Cons

Everything else

flexible shifts

You get to choose when you want to work. on the app they will offer different hours and length blocks. the blocks are between 2 hours to 4 hours. a 3-hour block usually pays between $55-$60. 3 hours blocks are what is mostly offered. easy work for good pay.

Pros

chose when you want to work.

Flexible job has some problems

For some of the warehouses, the hours are good and flexible. I only can drive during the day, so less jobs are available. The pay can be good if it surges like during Christmas, but other times it maxes out at $18/hour. I found out that computers and app manage you, not people. If you run into a problem during a delivery, your call gets routed to offshore sourcing and there is a language barrier and disconnect. You are penalized if someone steals your delivered package off of a porch and undeliverable packages must be taken to the warehouse another day if after hours, meaning driving a lot of miles back. For Whole Food Deliveries, I haven't been getting tips so can't do that anymore because for a $7 base it isn't worth the miles on car with high gas prices.

Pros

flexible hours, you get paid a couple of times a week, the work isn't too stressful if you don't have issues while delivering

Cons

wear and tear on your vehicle and body, risk of accidents and injuries during bad weather, cold in the winter, some facilities make you wait up to 30 minutes to get your assigned route, some facilities overload your route so you can't complete it in the time allowed, some glitches in system cause you to be penalized, 1099 so responsible for insurance, taxes, car repair and maintenance, etc.

Easy and flexible

You can do as little or as much as you like off these jobs so it’s very easy to fit them around your lifestyle. Most runs can be done in 30 less than advertised at least.

Working for a delivery service partner as a multi drop driver

They provide the van and the insurance and fuel. Just turn up, load the van then deliver about 250 parcels a day, usually about 150 stops. God job, good pay for what you do.

Pros

Work on your own Brilliant management

Cons

Days can be long Weekends required Self employed

Good not quite perfect

The programme allows you to be flexible in working allowing work only when needed. However, on the flip side this work is not guaranteed so its not a reliable income. Great for students however.

Pros

High pay

Cons

Unpredictable

Drive your own car, GPS directions were easy, dropped packages to offices and homes

Great pay you can select your on hours you can select how many stops. Must be an organized person also stay focused dont get distracted or you will fall behind. Drive your own car, GPS directions were easy, dropped packages to offices and homes. Be prepared for dogs and watch out for pedestrians especially children do the speed limit

Pros

Everyone was helpful

Cons

Fast paced, some apartment buildings were hard to locate.

Very flexible

Flexible job, but can be difficult to get hours at times. They often have too many drivers, so the competition can be fierce. Would be a great gig if you could get consistent hours.
