Just got done with my first three hour shift. I will say that you better be fast at grabbing orders because a lot of the times I just sat there trying to grab one.

Most of the merchants were very nice and knew who postmates was, only a few didn't know, and 1 told me they don't allow deliveries from anyone but someone they have a contract with.

The majority of this is handling food orders. It helps to be really familiar with Asian and Spanish or Mediterranean cuisine, as I would say 90% of the orders I placed was for those items.

It also helps if you can speak (or at least understand) heavy asian and/or spanish
accents.

My phone wouldn't interface with their call system so I had to call manually, which takes extra time.

Most orders are pretty straight forward, but sometimes you will get orders with strange or hard to understand instructions.
