    Very Flexible Schedule - option to pick up shifts when free or have an assigned schedule based on availability. Able to cancel shifts on short notice without doing too much damage. Better than minimum wage, even after expenses

    Cons

    A lot of wear and tear on your vehicle Self Employed - so no benefits, vacation pay, etc.

    "Lots of Hidden Costs"

    Former Employee - Courier in Burnaby, BC

    I worked at SkipTheDishes part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - flexible schedule (you send your availability for the next week and they will send you a schedule) - relatively easy work (go to restaurant and pick up food, deliver to customer, wait for next order, etc.) - every once in a while you get a big order with a big tip

    Cons

    - you pay for your own gas and insurance (there is a special more expensive class of insurance for people who do deliveries) - even if you make earn good money, the gas and insurance will eat up most of that profit - you only make money if you get an order - sometimes you deliver to an out-of-the-way place then you have to decide if you want to wait there for your next order or drive to a more busy area (and use up gas) - I've had days when I had a four-hour shift and only had three deliveries - you only get paid a travel fee and tips, so even if somebody orders five pizzas and you happen to be close to the restaurant and the delivery is close by, you may only get $3-$4 if they don't tip (that has happened)
