avatar-of-creator

This is a full time job, there no layoffs but over hiring, so the job security issue is automarically resolved 😇

Yeah people see such jobs like part time and temporary material but its not like that the world is evolved, and these oppurtunities are everywhere and senior professionals are joining them

Wait for a delivery to pop up and then go do the favor. Usually takes about 20 mins for one favor, we say favor instead of delivery and i think its more elegant and near to customer hearts 😊

Well, sometimes u don’t get a favor request for long periods of time or its a far delivery and not worth the gas or mileage

Amazing pay with bonuses, make more than I would in my career. 😋
avatar-of-creator

I think they need to implement a system similar to DoorDash or UberEats so each driver doesn't have to order individually, just frustrates customers. Let customers place orders directly in the app.

I got attracted with the schedule and independent working hours 🥺
avatar-of-creator
11 months ago
Absolutely, getting on the schedule helps, but even when you're not on it, the runners who killed it last week, or have been working dependably for the last year are going to get the jobs first. 😋
avatar-of-creator

yeah its true, its a big thing that makes this job a prime job for anyone part time or full time

I heard they give second chances to felons, but must have been 5 years passed 🥺
avatar-of-creator
10 months ago
Because the charge still shows up on a background check, and most of the time a charge is enough. Remember, you’re not trying to purchase a firearm, you are trying to get a job and employers are free to discriminate
avatar-of-creator

It will appear in your background and can be a problem depending on the type of or weightage of the crime 😶

As a runner, can i work from home? 😊
avatar-of-creator

Its technically not benefitial because you need to complete the favors from the hotspots of your city☺
avatar-of-creator

You can work from home in some cases, but its not a good option, u need to be out, catching the right favors and deliver them rightly on time
