Atypical tipped employee job
Driver (Current Employee) – Sioux City, IA – December 15, 2018
I see a lot of people complaining about how the tips go toward salary and etc., but this job is better than any other tipped employee job that I know of!? The federal government requires employers to pay their tipped employees as little as $2.13/hr as long they top it off to minimum wage ($7.25/hr) at the end of the week. Bite Squad not only doubles this minimum ($4.35/hr), it also guarantees higher hourly rates at peak times, the end result is that less of the tips earned go towards topping off...you won't see this in many places...and your cash tips are between you and the customer. I have found that if you work hard, you'll make more! In addition, I have found the support from management and dispatch to be outstanding and the app to be very functional and helpful (most of the time). My previous job was in telemarketing but, after trying out driving for Bite Squad part time for a month, I quit that and went full time with the Squad...less stress and much more potential earnings (base salary is about the same). My only regrets are limited benefits and no PTO, but I got a feeling that will change someday? Overall, I love what I do with Bite Squad and I'm excited about its future!
Control your own schedule, better than average pay for similar positions, great support
Lack of benefits, no PTO
