    I worked at Eat Out In full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Setting your own hours is very beneficial.

    Cons

    You must work at least one weekend day every weekend.

    Advice to Management

    A boost in payment for the more dependable drivers would be nice.

    I worked at Eat Out In as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    choose days and shifts you want to drive. pretty brainless work

    Cons

    long driving distances for orders; sometimes 20min to restaurant+ 20min to customer. some restaurants give drivers bad attitude. a lot of time wasted waiting at restaurants

    Pros

    Tips are almost on all of he orders. Catering orders are nice with very nice tips. If you're not making good money with this company it is probably because you suck as a delivery driver. And the only drivers that get good orders are the good drivers, I.e the ones that check their orders good, are positive, and are not late to your restaurants. So, if you're making mostly $5.00 tips, it's because you are not a good driver. It's a great company to work for! Driving around listening to music and Looking at the beautiful Austin scenery. There is no favoritism. If you do a good job, you get rewarded.

    Cons

    Time constraints on the orders, some low tips, wear on the vehicle, can be stressful at times, have to work evenings

    I have been working at Eat Out In as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Little interaction with management
    Pays weekly.
    Lots of time in your car if you enjoy reading or music
    Make your own schedule

    Cons

    Wear on vehicle that is not reimbused.
    No hourly guarantee
    I have sat for 2 hours waiting for an order
    Frequent days where you loose money if you deduct gas
    People don't tip if your late because traffic.
    People frequently order out to avoid traffic areas
    Frequent 5 dollar earning orders, often taking a full hour to complete start to finish
    No taxes withheld, but they report everything
    The company keeps the majority of the delivery fee
    The dispatch team know who the tippers are, it's all on record, and I suspect give those orders to other dispatch working drivers (inclusive)
    You drive all over Austin. With the same low pay if you drive 1 mile or 20.
    You are contractually obligated, and sign away any right to sue them for damages received when you sign the arbitration clause. This protects them from any responsibility should something happen to you on clock.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the 1099, offer oil changes and gas cards, Charge enough to gaurantee a living wage for employee's. Do away with having drivers as dispatch, it breeds nepotism and insider favors.

    I worked at Eat Out In part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hardly any employee/boss interactions.
    Clock in from home or anywhere you want to.
    Sometimes you get very expensive deliveries which can net you a nice tip.
    Job is VERY easy to do.

    Cons

    Not delivering in a small piece of Austin, but a MASSIVE area which spans to other cities.
    Your vehicle will take brutal punishment from the amount of miles your asked to drive.
    Much of the money you make, goes to the insane amount of case used.
    Not an hourly job, you only get paid for each delivery, so slow periods you make nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a better way so your drivers aren't driving at ridiculous lengths. Allow drivers to wear shorts in the sweltering summer.

    I worked at Eat Out In as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are not too many pros for working for this place. The only pro I can think of is that you are paid cash daily.

    Cons

    The management is incompetent. There are no benefits. The pay is very low. After gas and insurance, the pay is at or below minimum wage. The delivery area is too large (Austin, Cedar Park, and Round Rock), which results in low pay for the drivers who are not reimbursed for millage but rather on a $3.75 per run fee.

    Advice to Management

    You should be less greedy and share profits with your drivers in some way. You should shrink your delivery area or pay your drivers for millage..

    Pros

    Make your own hours, good tips, hardly interact with Boss

    Cons

    Wear and tear on vehicle, no compensation for gas, a lot
    Of driving

    Advice to Management

    High pay per delivery, and stress to customers that drivers get paid next to nothing if you don't tip good, so essentially we are using our own vehicle and gas to deliver your food
