Hi sheryl318, I'm enjoying Postmates. I'm actually able to make more hourly with them than with Door Dash. If you can place 26 orders in an hour that is $9 an hour, which really isn't bad. My 2nd 1 hr shift with them I was able to make $7.35. I made more tonight close to 8.25. How do you see the ratings. I haven't seen any ratings yet, but maybe that's because it's my 1st week.

Also, one thing I don't like is if you make a mistake in your scheduling & it's less than 24 hours that you need to cancel it, we are expected to try and swap hours & find a replacement to work our hours. This was not explained before hand & it's something I think they should tell you in the beginning. With Door Dash it's easy to go in and just cancel even less than 24 hours, although I know they don't like you to. But I accidentally sched for 2 shifts b2b for tomorrow & realized I couldn't work them because of a prior commitment.

So, I was told to go to the Facebook page and post my hours to do a swap. I first went in and requested a swap, but I wish you could just cancel the hours. It's too much of a hassle having to find a replacement worker. I mean we are not considered employees, so I don't feel we should have to find replacements for shifts we're not able to work. I'm really not going to stress about it. I emailed Hayley & hopefully I won't be dinged for this. I mean I think I've been doing a good job so far, but just a caution to anyone working for them or planning to do so, be careful when you do your scheduling. If you need to cancel a shift, I believe you can go back into the schedule and just hit the leave button & cancel it, if it's more than 24 hours. If not, then you have to worry about swapping and finding a replacement worker. So, I have to be more careful in the future with this.

Night all.
