    I have been working at Favor for more than a year

    Pros

    - Flexible hours - Business model has potential

    Cons

    - Runners must rely too much on tips for income. - No compensation for miles driven or gas. No incentive to take runs further than 2-3 miles in totality. - Difficult to get on a schedule. - Average of $9/hr is gross and doesn’t take into consideration overhead operating costs. - Minimum tip is too low at $2. You could do a 1 hour run and make only $4.10 gross in that hour for your time and effort.

    Pros

    flexible hours-tips-lots of interesting places and people

    Cons

    At first I thought this would be great. Looked like lots of potential but.......difficult to log hours due to too many runners logging on-too many calls for deliveries coming all at once from different parts of town-no easy way to skip an order-requires a text to support, often when on the way to another delivery, which requires pulling over, once you get that order reassigned, another one comes two seconds later, then another and another till you finally accept one-bad ratings due to the fact that you have to wait in line in some restaurants for half an hour to place an order and even if they take the order over the phone, you are often waiting half an hour or more, then have to drive across town to deliver, while simultaneously stopping to text support to reassign new orders till you finally take one that is across town, while you are still delivering the first order, then wait in line, wait for food, start delivery, etc., which results in poor tips and bad ratings so quite often, one delivery can take an hour or more and you will get the $2.10 rate and minimum $2.00 tip for a total of $4.10 for an hours worth of work. No consideration for miles travelled. Other delivery jobs that use phone apps use the gps to tell where you are and assign you orders in the same area with a skip button of you can't get to them in time and the orders are usually ready when you get there, no waiting and you get paid by the mile so some deliveries pay as much as $7 to $14 and take no longer than twenty minutes to pick up and deliver and then you also get a tip but with Favor, you are bouncing from one of town to the other, while stopping every two minutes to either text support or place a phone order for the new delivery and texting the customer to let them know you will be on your way soon. Little do they know that you will be finishing up the order you are on now and won't even get to their restaurant for twenty minutes and then you have to wait in line, order, etc. A lot of work for little return in money.
