Inexperienced drivers

I placed my order at 5pm the order said it was close at 526 pm. Then I get a call from the driver at 550 pm asking me to provide another address. Not sure what other address I’m supposed to give him. The whole point in ordering is to have it come to your door.

So anyway, the driver calls back at 7 pm saying he found my place!! I told him I already placed another order and won’t be using Skip the dishes again due to poor service and as far as tipping is concerned there is an automatic tip that gets added to the receipt so you drivers can’t complain about not making any money.

Anyway from now on I’ll be using Uber eats!!!

    When I worked retail, I always disliked people who walked in minutes before the store closed and expected everyone to work past their scheduled shifts unpaid to serve them hand and foot. Check your first world problems at the door and tell me how hard life really is.

  5. Skip themselves are fine. Drives are paid literally in tips, you get good drivers and you get shit drivers.

    This is a driver issue and if you call skip they usually help you out.

    • They don’t get a delivery fee? I don’t believe that.

    • They do but that usually covers gas.

    • I drive for skip when I am bored. You keep delivery fee and whatever the customer tips. But majority of the time people don’t tip.

    • I usually do the tip, but I hate doing it predelivery

    • Dustin Edward Giroux not tipping on skip isn’t even an option. Lol

    • Sherry Malley, it’s very easy not to tip…lol the delivery fee is what you pay for convenience of being able to order from almost any restaraunt. That’s not a tip….

      [0]
    • You do know it automatically applies the tip right? Lol I mean you can 0 it out but then the drive has 0 reason to bring you anything

      [0]
    • Rory Williamson it has a preset percentage as a suggested tip on the app. That’s not automatically adding anything. You ok it. You add the tip.

      And if the driver wants to continue to drive for them you will get your order weather you tip or not.

    • You wouls be surprised that unless that driver is paid a tip in cash… these companies keep a nice portion of delivery fee and top it up with the tips.
      For example… your delivery fee is roughly 18$ tip included… how much of that do you think goes to the driver? Definitely not as much as you think… and definitely not the full amount you paid for fees either.

      Also if the amount is worth not worth the drivers time of fuel… its not ao easy to just get your order…

    • Kym Normandin, I have ordered from skip regularly over then last year and a half or so. Not once did i not get my food. No matter the amount of tip.

      As a driver I can tell you we get 100% of the tip you award at tome of order. That percentage amount you chose goes soley to the driver. This is the amount many people decide to zero out cause there’s already a delivery fee.

      Of course a portion of the delivery fee goes to skip. But it’s not as much as you think. I know the delivery fees I have paid and have been paid out…..and not EVER have I paid 18 for delivery. The delivery fees are average from 3 to 6 dollars. So unless you tip 14 bucks or so you’re not pay 18 for delivery lol

  6. There is an automatic tip? Since when??

  7. Okay, so you say “inexperienced driver”, dude have you driven on the roads the last week? They’re kind of shitty. And if he was inexperienced, I’m personally just happy he was safe… I mean really, your food sure as fuck ain’t worth an accident.

    Why did you feel the need to bitch about this? If this is the worst thing that happened to you today, be happy.

    And, you wasted good food, you’re an ass.

    I use to drive for skipthedishes and in many occassion people messed up their own addresses with silly mistake like Ave instead of street and then when i call the customer, well they are always right and wont admit wrong address even after i showed them in the app which we are suppose to follow.

    Yes sometimes orders do get delayed from many reasons but if you call skip they will refund you or give yoh discount and hear your complaint and ask the driver what went wrong.

    Making money? Trust me there isn’t so much making money in delivery driver. If you drive a full day then yes there is a bit of moneh which can be made by working most cashier jobs.

  12. You’re seriously joking right? The road conditions are crap, experienced drivers are going off the roads, Deliveries are not going to be perfect tonight.

    And yeah, a 3-5 dollar tip isnt all that much considering its contract driving and taxes are paid against said tips as well….

    • and the wear and tear on the car

      [0]
    • I get what you’re saying, but this case wasn’t about the driver taking care in weather conditions. This driver was lost trying to find an address for over an hour. I would be mad too.

      [0]
    • Did the op have their lights on? (Most people dont even bother turning on lights)
      Did Op put the address in correctly?
      How far was pick up to delivery?
      Also if the driver was using google maps.. it could have been having one of its days (trust me has been giving me final destinations in the middle of back alleys houses away.
      Theres definitely not the entire situation laid out in front of the readers

    • Or, if you know your place is difficult to find, provide some basic directions.

  13. I used to drive for skip. The tips were not all that great. some of the addresses are indeed hard to find, and yes in this weather even harder. It is hard to earn extra money, when clients order their food for example way on gateway blvd. and expect their food to arrive in a good time when they in fact live deep north, lets say Castledowns. Yes, this has happened many times. Is that fair?

  14. Did you give the driver an opportunity to explain? There could have been a reason. Not to mention the weather conditions, etc. Could it be gps was wrong? That happens frequently!
    Your story has gaps- did you call Skip the Dish back promptly within a reasonable time frame? Or even when driver arrived?
    I don’t think you gave them a “fair” chance. Too quick to complain on social media.

  15. I’ve ordered from Skip dozens of times over the last few years, NEVER had an issue!!

  16. I won’t use Skip the Dishes. Found out they take 20% from the restaurant – in some cases that amounts to their whole profit margin – and then you are expected to tip the driver too. Don’t even get me started about tips…..

    • You’re right. Why should you compensate someone for delivering food because you’re too busy or lazy to do it yourself?

      They save you gas and time. Do you really expect skip and the driver give you that service for free?? Lol

      [0]
    • The delivery person is already getting paid…by the company he / she works for. I pay a delivery fee when I order in so it isn’t free. We talked with the owner of our favourite restaurant about using skip the dishes and found out it eats a large amount if not all of her profit. She doesn’t make a profit, the restaurant closes. So instead of being too busy or lazy as you put it, we order and pick it up ourselves. We support the restaurant and tip for great service, not because someone drove our food to us, a service which I will point out again…we pay for.
