    I worked at Saucey for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Organized and well-structured, once you get the hang of it. Super nice folks at the dispatch center. Flexible scheduling and easy to trade shifts, as there are always other couriers on-call.

    Cons

    Although its endemic to any type of courier service, having to blow through endless numbers of gas tanks, and also taking a hit on the mileage and depreciated value of the vehicle used to deliver. But, again, this isn't so much a 'con' of Saucey, just a downside to this type of work, in general.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do! Everybody needs their booze in a timely fashion, and not having drunk folks on the road is a benefit to everyone in our city!

  2. "False income expectations"

      Current Employee - Courier in Plano, TX

      I have been working at Saucey for more than a year

      Pros

      Flexible hours. You can choose from different areas to work in. Dispatch is very easy to work with.

      Cons

      Was lured in from a FB advertisement stating "Make up to $700 per week..... ". So I clicked on it to check it out. You then go to the website to schedule an orientation, and it gets even better. The website said "Make up to $1,000 per week". This sounds great! Flexible hours and locations, etc. and make up to $1,000 a week! Things in the orientation are explained in a way to make it sound as if you're going to make more...

      Advice to Management

      Explain it how it really is when people start. Pay is based on 2 deliveries an hour, but in reality, that isn't going to happen on any regular basis. So all the $.50 per item amounts only go in to fill the empty spaces in the time you don't have deliveries. I've even been picking up an order, and another order came through while I was at the store, and I wasn't the courier to receive the order. What?? It's my core block,...

      I have been working at Saucey

      Pros

      tuesday payday, flexible hours, that is all

      Cons

      another company trying to get rich off the backs of poor people.

      Advice to Management

      advice to couriers: start a union or equivalent. stop working for crumbs these people don't care about your risks

      I have been working at Saucey

      Pros

      Make your own schedule, hourly minimum on slow shifts. Tips.

      Cons

      Shifts fill up quickly, usually within a few minutes of posting. Hard to get a response from support if it doesn't involve a customer related issue. Lack of information on some deliveries. Store locations don't always have Saucey supplies.

      Advice to Management

      Provide faster solutions for Sidekick issues and a contact phone number. Emails usually don't receive a response for days and there is no other way to contact. Make sure stores have tags and bags.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Saucey part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      It's a fun little part time job, when it's slow, you can relax a bit, which is a plus when you want to get other stuff done like homework, listen to music, etc. Also nice because the delivery radius is small so you're not driving from one end of the city to the next when it comes to pickup/delivery. Dispatch is usually very prompt when it comes to any issues with delivery or customers which is nice compared to other...

      Cons

      Pay structure has decreased, before you could make minimum wage ($10/hr) PLUS commission + tips, but now if it's slow, you're only guaranteed minimum wage. Therefore you're going in hoping it's busy and that you'll make more than $40-$60 a shift. Liquor partners have moved from local liquor stores in the heart of the area you'll be delivering to, to using chain liquor stores with early hours, and inconvenient locations....

      Advice to Management

      I'd definitely say go back to using the local liquor stores, in terms of delivery, as you can keep the delivery times shorter as you'll already be in the relative neighborhood, and you'll avoid traffic. Go back to the old pay structure or have more incentives to earn bonuses for couriers. Verify with the customer before placing the order that their address is correct, there are times when you get to an address that...

    • "Enjoyable part-time gig"

        Positive Outlook

        I have been working at Saucey for more than a year

        Pros

        Recently increased order payouts, tips have gotten much better, flexible options to work pre-scheduled shifts or on the fly, regular release of updates and improvements, good dispatch team - you can actually reach a live person if you have an issue. It's actually fun delivering booze to the customers. :)

        Cons

        They still have some more to grow in certain zones.

        Advice to Management

        Open shop in more areas! (i.e. oakland, south SF, pasadena, orange county, etc)

          I have been working at Saucey for more than a year

          Pros

          The best part about working at Saucey the customers. I love delivering alcohol to customers. They usually are really excited to see you and the deliveries are not extremely hard to do. Also when delivering you are usually within a 3 mile radius zone so you don't have to worry about driving 20 miles to make 6 bucks or something crazy like that. I found most of the customers tip cash and online. Apps like Instacart,...

          Cons

          The only con I have is this is mainly an evening and weekend gig, because people aren't drinking right when they wake up right? At least lets hope not.

          Advice to Management

          I would try to have the scheduling within the courier app.

          Pros

          Flexible schedule, guarenteed hourly pay (unlike uber/post mates), communicative and friendly dispatch, professional staff, simple and efficient app technology. over all a super awesome company to work for!

          Cons

          This company has no cons in the year that I've worked for them. Straight A's in my book!

          Advice to Management

          Continue doing exactly what you're doing.
