    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.

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of perks such as making your own schedule, getting to be your own boss, and getting to know the city you're driving in. There is also a $9/hour guarantee when you get on the schedule in time to select your hours in advance.

    Cons

    In my experience, you really have to stack up hours with favor in order to truly make a profit with how much money you lose in gas and occasional parking fees. Runners are often looked down upon at restaurants because we can't tip the people serving our customers. In addition, the orders from customers are often vague, and you're left having to ask several questions on their preferences, and I often have instances where they are slow to answer. This serves a challenge when I'm at a busy restaurant with a line out the door behind me. Hours can also be hard to claim in smaller towns like San Marcos, because there's such a large amount of runners. It can also be tricky when you have little information about the restaurant, sometimes I may get an order during rush hour downtown, and I'm stuck spending extra time searching for parking, and causing it to take a much longer time.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be an improvement in communication between the customer, runner, and restaurants. Perhaps if the runner app provided us with more information on these places, (like if parking is available, or if they allow call in orders) it would save runners a lot of trouble. There have been many instances where I decided not to call in the order, but upon arrival realized all the time I could have saved after hearing the wait time.

    I worked at Favor part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Schedule is easy to read and set up, If you get on the schedule you have a guarenteed $9 per hour.

    Cons

    The pay is low - you have a base pay for every delivery of about 2.50 and then you make a tip. There is no way to access the money you made for a week unlike other sevices that are similar. Also if you have driven for others you are taking a pay cut in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Need more support for drivers to understand the pay structure and give then opportunity to make more.
