What Users Say: (From Indeed)

A typical day at work is easy going.

I haven’t learned much in the way of job experience.

Management looks at you as expendable.

In more rural areas be prepared for long car drives because of an outdated system.

The hardest part of the job is dealing with cranky customers or the “Driver Care Team/Specialists”.

Pros: Very lax job

Cons: Long Delivery routes, Difficulty contacting Grubhub, feeling inadequate and expendable, Grubhub acts as if they’re not at fault for problems that arise from their app, or while you are on the route

Would I recommend to a friend? No, most of my friends make way more than this job pays. Of all the delivery companies it is the best but thats like being the best at the special Olympics.

Pros: Work when you want

Cons: Driving around all day
