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.
Pros
flexible schedule
Cons
parking

Really great job if you’re looking for something to do in your spare time to make some extra money. How much you make can really depend on the area you’re delivering to but if you put in the effort you’ll make good money and feel rewarded working as an independent contractor for Postmates. Your schedule is completely up to you which is the best part in my opinion (ex: sometimes I would work a lot of hours in one week or no hours at all depending on my schedule and other obligations but that didn’t matter and I could always jump back in at any point) I’d highly recommend.

When ever I had some free time I would just go in my car and wait for a delivery for me to accept and deliver. After deliveries I would sometimes get tips some people are more generous than others with tips but it’s good.

I have worked postmates for over 4 years as a spare time job while doing other on demand delivery jobs and while doing that it was fine. When I lost those other jobs and tried postmates full time the past two months the pay has been very poor and it's not worth it because Im averaging less than a dollar an hour on most days. For example I have waited for 8 hours one day and during that time only received 3 orders which amounted to around $25-30 because one customer gave a $12 tip and the others gave nothing. Now once you factor in the gas I spent to drive to the restaurants and customers homes I only made $4 for 8 hours. If you have other jobs and just leave this on to do when you have down time then it'll give you an extra $20-40 a day but if you're relying on this to live off of then you're going to be sadly disappointed and very frustrated because you will spend more on gas than you'll make back since most of the customers think it's ok not to tip and Im someone who lets them know we need tips to make our money but they still dont care because we dont matter only getting their order does. Also their weekly pay guarantees are a joke because I have spent a great deal of time trying to get them and normally when they're in effect I actually get less orders and money not more. Neither the company or customers appreciate the hard work drivers do so save yourself the time, gas and trouble by picking a better company to work for.
