      Pros

      Work your own schedule. Able to get paid instantly or weekly. Drive your own vehicle or even walk or on bicycle.

      Cons

      Might not get good tips from all customers. Postmates are now with Uber Eats and won't hire you if you have a DUI and you're applying to do the job by foot or on bicycle.

      Free lunches 3x the week, good benefits, ok pay

      High turnover rates and the marketing teams are led by people who don't know how to lead, we've had 5 managers come and go in less than a year

      Soul-Sucking - Postmates and Postmates by Uber both were the worst

      Oct 21, 2021 - Senior Associate in Nashville, TN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      There were none. At first it had many pros as it seemed like a place to build a career based on the “culture” and the lies they spew when you first start. I worked so hard for them above and beyond and all they gave me in return was disrespect and taking me for granted while knowingly not paying me what I’m worth. You can make a great career there if you’re fake and unqualified as long as you can win a popularity contest. If you can’t be most popular because you go in and actually work hard at your job they will want you to take on a higher level of responsibility and supervisory tasks that other people are paid more to do without paying you a dime more all for the sake of advancement then when you actually play along and do work free for 6 months or more and kill it then try for advancement they still never contact you after an interview, never give you a reason why or what to work on or even have a reason other than they already picked who they hired before they ever posted the job. Such a scam.

      Cons

      Everything except the benefits sucked.
