I loved working for fooda, the best part was dealing with new people everyday and new faces. I loved that the job was fast pace work, and free meals and samples are included in your shift.

Fooda has an amazing idea for bringing in food from places popular and exclusive. They provide free lunches and they also don't have a limit on vacation days.

Start-up feel... and taste
Market Operations (Current Employee) –  ChicagoJanuary 5, 2015
Fooda is a start-up company in every way, shape and form. But the company is building fast and furiously, which means they have support behind the scenes and their products are moving the needle inside the food industry.

Culture wise, it is an evolving start-up, it has the feel and taste, but is pushing to another level, slowly establishing itself in an ever growing market.

Management is methodical, making changes to better the product, not to simply alter the environment; there is always an end goal or mission in mind.

You'll learn everyday, you'll be challenged everyday and you'll go home every night rearing to go for the next day.
Pros
Benefits; Autonomy; Responsibility; Start-up culture; Key decision making
Cons
Tight deadlines; Around the clock changes; Can easily get stuck if you don't adapt to quick change

Great Hours, Great Pay
Delivery Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 23, 2014
A friend of mine recommended the job to me after he was hired and I really wish that I would have jumped on it sooner. You only work about an hour-hour and a half per day, with about 20 minutes of real work. The system they have to deliver food orders to specialists is really modern (you will need a smartphone and the GroupMe app), and you really have to keep up with communicating back to supervisors.
Pros
Great pay, easy hours, great for extra cash
Cons
Not sustainable income
