Complete Pile Of SHIPT
This used to be a great gig job, for people with some intelligence who were willing to work hard.
That was, of course, back before the company was acquired by Target. Once the company was acquired, the downhill slide began. I went from making an average of $20 or more per order, to getting sent “offers” that are $4 or $5 to go ten miles.
Now the company is the worst of the gig jobs.
1. They pay very little. Yes, you may get lucky and get the good customers- if you have been doing this for five years. But, new drivers will be competing with every other new driver for the scraps in their city. So, if you get 2 or 3 orders a DAY you are lucky.
2. They think we are employees. Maybe they don’t pay us like they pay actual employees, but the Target mentality has taken over this company. That is, we can and will be fired for any reason. They treat drivers as completely expendable. Just like in a retail environment. Of course, retail workers don’t drive their own vehicles around to bring someone groceries, but so what?
3. They do not understand the business. No, shopping an order that takes twenty minutes- let alone two hours- is not the same as walking into McDonald’s, grabbing a bag, and walking out the door with it. Nobody who isn’t completely ignorant is going to spend two hours in the store, and then drive ten miles, for $4 or $5.
4. They have moved driver assistance offshore. It used to be that the people who helped you were located in Alabama, and actually spoke English. But now you get someone in India who just reads a script over and over. And over.
5. The customers here are the worst. Shipt, like their owner Target, takes the attitude that a customer can do nothing wrong. And the customers that pay for Shipt tend to be the upper middle class types known as Karens. People who have enough money to pay for the service, and think that entitles them to be as bitchy as possible.
* I have been called a drunk, told to go back to the rez, asked how I managed to afford my car, etc= maybe because I am Native American?
* I have had the cops called on me, by my own customers, for refusing to drop off items that required age verification without seeing ID.
* I have many times pulled up to a gated community, only to have the customer refuse to give me the gate code.
6. The company actively tracks down people who complain about them. They will follow you on Facebook, and every other social media outlet; this is why their app demands the right to access your phone, even when the app is not running. Unless you are willing to say how you want to get down on your knees for Shipt because they are sliced bread and Jesus all rolled into one, they will expunge you from their system.
At least with Door Dash, Uber, etc, you have a way to report a bad customer and rate them. Not with Shipt.
Worst of the worst.
Ok but not great
