Courier in Glasgow, Glasgow
on 18 May 2022
Okay job but requires a lot of motivation
Pretty poor pay for what can be a hellish job. Nice if you’re wanting to get fit and have some fresh air though. Few incentives to work on days where weather is grim.
Courier in Central and Westminster

Ultimate example of low paid gig economy “job”
Really poor fees. Too many riders competing against another, distances twice as long for min fees. Many hours without orders thus resulting in amounting to less than half of min hourly wage. On top of that, having to provide your own bike/ebike. Wear and tear of expensive equipment, no holiday pay or taxes and no income security whatsoever! They get you hooked at being so called working for your own and choosing your own hours. The reality is far from it. There is only few hours where demand is high that is Friday nights between 7-9 and again Saturday and and hour or two during lunch time. Thus having no social life.
Deliveroo Rider in Reading

They hire too many riders and sometimes you have to wait 10-15 minutes to receive an order.
They lowered the fees so much that I receive a three miles order for around £3.50. Also they hired too many riders and you can wait 15-20 minutes or sometimes more to receive an order. To make around £50-60 per day...sometimes you have to put in 8-9 hours. This is now in may 2022, winter months are better.
Courier Driver in England

Delivering food sound like a lot of fun.
Paying the bills when you make £4 deliveries, not so fun… you have to wait sometimes 10-15 mins for the food to be ready, other times is waiting for you ready, I even waited 1 hour on a Friday and Saturday evening, pay forFuel, pay for car repairs, new tyres twice a year, pay for insurance, which is not cheap as it’s a special Food delivery insurance, around £1500 per year, on top of your normal car insurance, sounds like great fun, right?
Delivery Driver in London

Pay is not good
The pay gets reduced every year and with the current cost of living, the pay is the worst at around £3 per delivery. The staff do not care about their drivers AT ALL no matter what you read in the media.
