    I worked at Peapod part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The cash is more than good Couple that with weekly checks When your in a tough personal time, management really works with you Mostly men so you have the slight sense of competitiveness and male comradely In can be like a big high school in the back. Co - vid 19 proof 10 - 12 hour days

    Cons

    -The speed at which you have to work to be the best, very similiar to UPS or Fedex. - Choosing your schedule daily means that you may often be woken up to scheduling phone calls. - you should really know if this is the job for you before you apply. go off intuition.

    I have been working at Peapod full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The job, itself I actually enjoyed. I made decent $, liked most of my routes, etc.

    Cons

    The biggest downside was learning just one week ahead of time that all midwest facilities would be closing down & we'd be out of a job. They lured us to the meeting where they broke the news by telling us it was a "town hall meeting."
