Pros
  • Flexible hours and flexible locations (in 34 reviews)

  • Keeps you fit if you work on a push bike (in 16 reviews)

Cons
  • Finally, due to often being out in bad weather you can get ill from the job - ironically losing you money as there is no sick pay for time off (in 11 reviews)

  • The only downside I see is the fact that you are exposed to the bad weather (in 19 reviews)

    Pros

    From my own experience I can say that Deliveroo is a great company to work with. I'm a student and this job gives me total flexibility since you are self employed and work on your own terms. I work whenever I want or when I need some extra money. As a rider, sometimes it is a bit hard, but is perfect if you love cycling and you can earn a lot of money as well

    Also bonus £50 after your first 20 orders by using the code LE142687 when applying

    Good luck!

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the weather is not always the best

    I have been working at Deliveroo (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really great part time job for students who like cycling. Unlike working on a shop floor, time passes very quickly as you are always busy. I averaged £12 per hour in my first week!
    You get to choose when you want to work, as little or as much as you like.
    Sign up process is very easy, simply fill out a quick application on Deliveroo's website and then pick up your kit at a storage location (takes <1 hour).

    Cons

    Kit costs £100. You can buy second hand if you wish. Deliveroo will take a maximum of 50% of what you earn until you pay it off.

    I have been working at Deliveroo full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic exercise, you're always outdoors which is a major positive especially if you are fed up with the office lifestyle. Good pay (£4 per delivery, average 3 deliveries an hour, plus tips) and you get paid bi-weekly which is a major plus. You also get a £50 starting bonus after your first 20 deliveries if you use this referral code OL144164 when you sign up. Highly recommend this job, especially if you're a student as it is extremely flexible.

    Cons

    Can be wet and cold sometimes but you do not really notice when you're on the bike.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    You earn 4 pounds per delivered parcel, and in some cases you can get double-orders as well, which is really good and efficient time-wise. Plus if you use a referral code in your application you can get 50 pounds extra after your first 20 orders. If you want you can use mine: DA167157
    The community is quite nice.
    You are going to have massive legs if you do this on a bike on a regular basis.

    Cons

    In Aberdeen the weather can get quite cold and windy, which is bad because if you get sick, you can't work and you won't get paid, therefore, what I would suggest is that you put on like 3-4 layers. It worked fine for me so far.

    I have been working at Deliveroo part-time

    Pros

    Overall I would highly recommend this job to any cyclist looking to earn some extra cash. It's very easy going, you can work whenever you want for as long as you want and if you get bored you can have a chat with other riders while you're waiting at restaurants to pass the time. You'll get ridiculously fit in no time and gain an excellent secondary source of income. The referral system also gives you a lot of extra cash; if you enter my referral code when you sign up you'll get £50: BE54889

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets boring if you're not getting any orders so you have to wait about for them to come in. There is a timetable feature on the app that predicts the busier periods so you can usually plan when you're going to work around that.
