Anybody wanting to work some hours in the dinner shift? Really busy so lots of money to be made, but I have a deadline I need to meet for my other job. I have shifts up from 5-8pm today and tomorrow.

Hi kara8776,

Yes. They have contracted with a few hundred additional people since I began in late March. Initially, during my scheduled shifts, there would be less than 150 signed into Slack to handle orders. Since that time, just last week there were almost 400 people signed in during my shifts. That number was not including the leads who were also signed in. Orders are now few and far between. I have been scheduling 2-3 back to back shifts during afternoon and evening peak times (usually 6 hours on my scheduled days). However, at this stage, when unclaimed orders do appear, claiming simply one has now become a battle. I was excited in the beginning and appreciate the opportunity, but I have made the decision to move on to other opportunities. I hope it works out for everyone.

things are quiet at the moment, but I just saw a news story that Chipolte Mexican has contracted with Postmates for delivery services. So maybe they were anticipating this new client sheryl

I sat at my screen the other night and couldn't even claim an order for over an hour
They over-hired by way too much

I'll keep at it and try to make a few bucks, and the leads are super nice, but it's not going to pay near as much as I had hoped with so many people grabbing orders right, left and sideways.

I think it's normal for new companies to overhire when starting out. If not, they would be less with too few workers when people start dropping out for whatever reason. I'm sure as they stop accepting applications, things will improve. I don't have too hard of a time making around $9 an hour. Also, I'm not sure if the number of people signed into Slack is really indicative of how many people are actually making calls. I know I'm always signed in. I have the app on my phone and I get notifications often, but I usually only work 2-3 hours in the evening.

They do get rid of people with low stats, so beware.

What hours did you work? I'm usually able to get about 20 calls an hour and that's with taking small breaks when my baby is being loud, to eat, etc. Do you feel like you take too long to place orders or that there aren't enough orders to claim? FYI, it's very busy right now if you want to hop on.
