You turn on the app and get going it is that simple. Hours are based on when you set your status to working and over when you turn it off. As contracted delivery work goes it is fine. The app sends you everything you need in a well organized way. The biggest problem you'll run into though is parking. It can often be very hard to find free parking which could severely hurt how much you take in. But other then that, its an easy way to work when you have free time and is quite easy.


flexible schedule

Good work

Fun place to work. I never got multiple runs at the same time guess I'm unlucky. Runs were varied tips can go either way. Lots of fun stories from late night delivery not that I would tell them.

It was an easy job, flexible with hours of course because you get to decide it all. It was nice whenever a large tip came in too. At times it felt repetitive.

Easy schduling

I really liked that I was able to create my own schedule. Because I was in school while working for postmates, I was able to work around my class schedule.

Delivery Driving People Their Orders.

It's only a decent job for 2 people. A PT job where you have a few hours to kill. Or if your a teen where your parents or guardians are paying your insurance, car maintenance and everything else. The car takes a beating at your own expense so unless your driving a new car with low mileage and high miles to the gallon it's a sham. Yes it's nice to say wow I made $250+ dollars in a day driving 10-12 hours but you deduct gas bill $60-100. Oil change needed for tires registration car insurance and any other bill you may have and your left with a basic $12-15 per hour wage but your putting miles and labor on your vehicle.


Start an Stop at your pace.


Unless you have a brand new car it's not worth the labor on the vehicle.

You are an independent contractor

This job will be as successful as you make it. If you put in the hours you can achieve some of your goals. It really cannot be compared to a traditional job because it is a job where you are classified as an independent contractor.


Make your own schedule


There are no sick days or paid vacations

Hit and miss

The goal was to do the required amount of deliveries in the window of time it was offered with the best payout. If you in a good location it was pretty easy to get the lunchtime 5 for $35 guarantee

Cool if you need to make a couple extra bucks throughout the day

Good to make an extra few dollars whenever you’re available during the day… you can sign in or out whenever you like and aren’t on a permanent schedule.


Work on your own schedule

I appreciate them for allowing me to earn.

What is the best part of working at the company?Back in 2019, the delivery services had an air of exclusivity. Postmates was inclusive and there were no problems starting immediately. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Multiple orders popping up (often 5 or more) and, after accepting all of them, getting the bulk of them reassigned to other drivers right under your nose.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Jobs usually showed up right away after signing in. The information on the order was minimal until you got to the vendor. Then more info was available to make determinations of contacting the customer with questions, or important details about the order. Often, the orders were "credit"; meaning you have to use the debit card to not only pay for the order but place it yourself at the counter or window. Very frustrating at times.

Fun and Productive

This was a independent contractor job, picking up food and delivering to customers. Good as a side hustle to make extra income .income is limitless depending on your availability and order acceptance

Very entry level and approachable job

The hiring process was intuitive and easy to complete in the comfort of your own home right on your personal phone. After a few days of onboarding and processing, you'll be good to go. Jobs like these are great for some extra cash here and there but definitely not a reliable source life sustaining income on its own. That being said, personally it was a fun way to introduce myself to the delivery/uber world in a basic and honestly fun venture, while it lasted.


Your own boss, work when you want


Pay for deliveries can be low in comparison to fuel expended
