Used to be great to work here as a driver/rider. But now it's just slavery. Seems they have lost interest in welfare of driver/riders. 6-8e per hour in Cork
Except at the weekend when u can make a wage. Too many riders.

After having worked with deliveroo for almost 3 years, they closed my account. Trying to talk to rider support about it, I went round in circles going nowhere. Seriously unfair. I did nothing wrong. Then all of a sudden I had no job and no reference. P***Poor show.

É uma experiência agradável trabalhar nesta empresa, o problema são as demandas que não necessariamente são ligadas a empresa e sim aos restaurantes, você é sempre dependente destas "chamadas".

As the same time it is fun to work on the streets is dangerous too. Bus drivers don't respect you as well as taxi drivers doesn't and when you are injuried because of working to hard deliveroo don't help with anything.

When I was working for Deliveroo my job would consist of being able to pick up and drop off food deliveries between the restaurant, cafes or shops in the city of Dublin. It was an experience to deliver food around Dublin and to respond to the different routes all over the city also to know your back yard. Over-all, I would recommend this job to anyone how has an in cycling.
Pros
get payed to exercise
Cons
long hours

The job Allows you to Pick your own hours and is totally flexible, you will Receive durable practical and light gear. Management is very helpful and it is a well thought out business model.


Thinking off signing up in Ireland? Weather can be an issue during the winter months but is very tranquil cycling around in the good weather and can really be relaxing and give you time to reflect and think while cycling around.

Pros
discounts for restaurants
Cons
low pay

+Great flexible work.
+Minimum interaction with customers.

-Low pay.

-Competition from other Deliveroos.

-Rain and wind if cycling.

-Waiting times between deliveries.

-People who live extremely far away.


In the end, you'll love it and hate it at the same time but at least you'll be fit at the end of the day if you do the job on a bike.

The work is hard-going and enjoyable, but the time spent sitting around waiting for a delivery to pop up is painful. There's nothing I hate worse than to get a job where I spend most of my time doing nothing, especially in a job based on commission.
Pros
work for yourself
Cons
inconsistent work patterns

Typical day at work

I would get dressed in my Deliveroo gear.

Hop on my bike and head to town.

I would turn on my gps on my phone, and wait for upcoming deliveries.

I would then accept the delivery, and head to the restaurant, following the mdirections on the map.

I would pick up the food, and head to the customer's address, which would show on the app itself.

Once I arrived at the house, I would ring the bell, hand the food to the customer, hop back on my bike, and head back to the town direction.

I would wait until another delivery would become available.

After a few hours, when I thought I did enough cycling and deliveries, I would normally head back home.



I worked for Deliveroo as a driver.


I was in charge of delivering the food from the restaurant to the customer's house.


Throughout my experience there, I learned many skills, such as:


Customer service skills.


Comnmunication skills.


Problem solving skills.


Technical skills.


Puncutality skills.


I was not strictly supervised by my manager. My work was followed by the deliveroo office from my phone. therefore I had the gps on all the time. If I had any problems or complications during the shift, I would ring the customer service which would resolve the issue immediately.


In my opinion the hardest part of the job is the fact that I was quite far from the workplace itself, therefore my shifts were limited to 3 hours per session.


Another hard aspect of the job would be that you are limited by elements aspects. If it rained, I was not fully able to work, as the rain made it too Dangerous.

is a good company to work with because you can choose when to work how to manage your schedule.
is a fun place to work

half of drivers in the area sign up, Deliveroo will be forced to recognise the union. It will be the first collective bargaining agreement in the “gig economy”, setting a precedent for others to demand further rights.

I chose deliveroo as it provided me with the ability to work when I wanted to. This gave me the opportunity to work as much as possible. The job allowed me to explore Dublin and earn money while getting fit. I met some very helpful friendly and interesting people through deliveroo which was an added bonus.
Pros
I got to experience Dublin in summer while cycling and I got fit
Cons
I found there to be very little cons to working with deliveroo

At first, working on a bicycle might seem attracting especially if you are into life outdoors and cycling. But you only realize the danger you are in after a few weeks, I have cycled in the rain and snow and even with all the equipment provided you are under a big risk in the night time. Management is great and your colleagues are always nice but after six months it was time for me to move on.
Pros
you can choose when you want to work.
Cons
the risk to be on the road.
