    It’s awesome to work for a company that values every employee. Each person here is here for a reason and the company wouldn’t work without them. This is a company that actually follows its values.

    I have been working at Favor part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Favor offers a flexible schedule and the ability to be your own “boss.” There’s no micromanagement at all. I’ve discovered new restaurants and new routes along the city as I ran favors. You get to choose your own schedule and work as little or as much as you want.

    Cons

    I wouldn’t necessarily say this is a con, but there is a ton of driving involved. You don’t really realize the amount of driving you will do until you’re actually running favors.

    It is extremely difficult to get on the schedule if you don’t have early access. Now I don’t even bother to try. I just run on demand. I have a 4.98 star rating and cant get on the schedule bc it’s full the next minute it comes out.

    You have to accumulate a lot of hours to turn a profit after factoring gas, time and vehicle maintenance.

    Sometimes orders can be vague and customers literally expect you to read their mind. So you end up asking a lot of questions. It really helps if you have previous experience as a server or some other customer based industry. Then you’ll know the right questions to ask, such as “how would you like your burger cooked?” Or “corn or flour tortillas?”

    It can be a challenge running favors downtown where parking is limited. I’ve found myself walking several blocks from parking to the destination to avoid pricy garage parking. This increases the favor run time and I’m rushing to keep the food from getting cold.

    I get a cold “vibe” from some restaurant employees because they’re familiar with Favor and know they won’t recieve a tip from us/the Favor customer. I’ve pulled money out of my own pocket to tip on large orders because I’ve felt so bad leaving nothing on the tip knowing they took the time to gather the order correctly.

    Sometimes I’ve ran favors across town, just to recieve a $2.00 tip and $2.10 delivery fee. I feel like the minimum tip should be increased on favors that require the runner to drive across town from the restaurant to their home/business.

    Because you are technically an “independent contractor.” You are not offered health insurance or any other type of benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the Runners. We are out there hitting the pavement experiencing these things first hand.

    Increase minimum (not suggested) tip on long distance and downtown favors.

    Make it easier to get on the schedule for those of us without early access.

    Some of us are interested in working within the Favor “corporate offices.” Maybe explaining the opportunities and how to apply would be great.

    I worked at Favor full-time

    Pros

    Decent hours
    Some good perks (free food)
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Company often operates in the red but acts like this is normal.
    Unprofessional, incompetent people are hired to deal with runners and customers
    High turnover
    Terrible pay

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bro culture and focus on rewarding the employees who work hard. The company's name is Favor, not Favoritism. Things should be based on merit.
