      Former Employee - Postmates Courier in Salt Lake City, UT

      I worked at Postmates for less than a year

      Pros

      Lots of perks for being part of the delivery network.

      Cons

      Pay per miles is the same as its deductions so you only make money on tips if you get them other wise you break even
