Good when in between jobs or as a side hustle
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 9, 2018
Postmates can be fun, the only stressful times are heavy traffic hours, probably because I have road rage lol.
I see lots of people complaining about the pay, saying they only make $4 per order and get no tips. I don't know what these people are doing but 90% of my orders are tipped. I do all the delivery jobs like doordash, etc. ALL of them over time have averaged about $18/hr. I've made $30/hr on weekends.
On postmates alone, you can do 2-3 orders per hour. For me, my orders have averaged $9.47 per delivery, that's out of 300. At 2 per hour, that's not terrible money where I live for an unskilled job.
Know which orders to accept, otherwise you'll end up wasting a lot of time. Motorcycle mode shows the order before accepting.
Explore town, easy money, no boss, flexible schedule
Heavy traffic, some slow restaurants, wear and tear on car
