What is health insurance like at Postmates Fleet?

Pros

You have to know "what this is" and "what this is not." This is NOT a lucrative or mentally stimulating career move. This IS a: 1) viable side income, 2) flexible, autonomous schedule (in my case, accommodating lots of doctor appointments), or 3) low skill, easy entry position (when you need to be able to start making money and deposit it in your bank account within less than a week, without an long interview process or education process) Here is some of MY "why" for contracting with Postmates: 1) No people in my car, just items to deliver. (I'm private and don't like having people in my car) 2) I can choose my deliveries. 3) I can start work when I want, end it when I want, and don't have to ask anyone for permission. This is PRIME for me, as autonomy and authority over my schedule was of the utmost importance to me. 4) Viewing and depositing my earnings is very easy. This is a feature I really like. I can deposit earnings directly to my bank account (minus a $.50 charge), and it appears instantly in my bank account (within 15 minutes). Weekly payouts happen on Monday at no charge, and arrive in your bank account within 1-2 business days. 5) I didn't need to have a "newer" car. Mine is a 2004, and they don't care. If you know your WHY, then you'll be able to evaluate whether Postmates might be a good fit for you.

Cons

There is no "person" you can talk to about problems with the app, needs you have as a courier, or how they could make your experience better. ALSO, their compensation structure is VERY LOW compared to YOUR BURDEN for gasoline, vehicle maintenance, insurance, and TAXES you'll owe at the end of the year. I gross about $20/hr (including tips) in a large metro area, but you better believe AFTER EXPENSES, I net around $10/hr. And you get NO BENEFITS. (They have partnerships where you can purchase benefits like health insurance, but this is at your own cost.)

Advice to Management

Create a pathway for contracted couriers to ask questions and provide feedback. As your primary users, we have the most valuable information for you as to ways you could attract and retain more of your contractors.

Does Postmates Fleet offer health savings accounts?

Pros

- Alot of great incentives or promos, but it's hard to achieve if you don't live in downtown area. - Flexible hours, fast cash - They offer HSA - Health Spending Account

Cons

- Hard to find parking, or got to pay parking for busy areas such as downtown areas. - Sometimes you only make enough cash for gas - Not enough money to even put away for HSA

Advice to Management

I believe Postmates should mandate tips. All services that are provided are required to pay tips. Waiter/waitress, nail techs, taxi, etc. Because we are offering services to customers so that they don't have to leave their comfort zone, I truly believe that all drivers who delivers to their property should be tipped. That's what service position looks forward to. It's only fair, no?
