    I worked at Deliveroo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair pay system if you take the hourly rate plus delivery fees.
    Very Flexible
    Opportunity to get a lot of exercise

    Cons

    Can be tiring
    Algorithm for which deliveries you should be assigned to is clearly broken, you can end up travelling 3 miles plus for a single delivery which is obviously absurd.

    Advice to Management

    Change the delivery assignment system. It doesn't work. Add in a maximum delivery distance, especially for bicycles.
