Good company to work with but no stability only contract jobs.
It is good platform to work especially for new comers in Winnipeg. Students get their survival jobs in good hands. You get to learn lot of new things and get hands on experience in Canadian market.
ProsThey do give jobs to so many international students.
ConsThey don’t hire any more for full time permanent job

Too much stress
The job is very stressful and demanding... management needs serious training because every other team lead have their own rules.. my first team lead was awesome but later my team got changed and the new team lead was full of attitude and arrogance. Work is demanding that one cannot look around until break..

productive and useful experience
I have learned a live support operation, how to respond to live calls and how to create actions for couriers, restaurants and customers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with cases of escalating the issues with customers.

Productive and Technically Advance company
SkipTheDishes is a technically advanced company. A place where we hardly use papers as everything is purely computer based. The team work and career advancement opportunities is something very laudable. I don't think the job really has a hard part because all the tools needed for effectiveness and efficiency at work are readily available.
Customer Service Representative | Winnipeg, MB | Aug. 2, 2019
Tedious, poor management and too much favouritism
This was my worst job experience so ever. They expect so much work from you yet they offer low pay. You can clearly see that some team leads suck up to the management and will only be friendly and helpful towards you until they leave. Don’t expect an advancement here because you can only grow in the company from knowing someone in a higher position than you. Your hard work won’t be recognized and you’ll just be treated as a disposable. Their problem solving overall with important stakeholders like customers and couriers isn’t effective enough. I’d say this job is good if you’re part time and still in school but as a career I’d never recommend it. Hopefully they can put more work into treating employees and couriers equally and fairly.
ConsLack of work/life balance, favouritism, boring

Fun Young Workforce, Monotonous Job
Like any big company, there is a robotic feel to the live operations work after a few months; they used to have fun cross training opportunities and a better managed workforce when they were just Skip; the good old control team controlled operations but later dissipated as algorithms created new roles and made a whole team non existence - it just shows you how progressive skip is as a company, provides full equipment for your work and sponsors immigration requests - easiest place to get along with and work by far for locals and immigrants!
ProsFree equipment during tenure, growth opportunities
Consmonotonous, bureaucracy
Driver (Independent Contractor) | Calgary, AB | Aug. 4, 2019
On behalf of all skip drivers i give them a 1/2 of 1 star! Skip is now a forced dispatch system!
As a class 1 driver i work part time for skip and it is now a forced dispatch system! The driver has the right to refuse an order but if you refuse the order your acceptance rating goes down and then you recieve no bonus from skip and if you refuse too many orders you will not recieve higher paying orders and you hours will be cut or you will be schedualed during low order times.

Questions and answers about SkipTheDishes

Do you have to put up a hundred dollars of your own money to start?
Asked Sep. 1, 2017
You need a smart phone , a data package , a full tank of gas , you need a float of $60 for cash orders. Before you can start you have to buy the bags which are priced differently depending on where you live and pay $20 for a criminal record check. Your car insurance will go up and vehicle wear and tear is no joke.

Is that skip the dishes requires a SIN Number for joining them
Asked Nov. 20, 2017
No they do not require ur sin
Answered Sep. 21, 2019
SIN is not required unless you want to use it as proof that you can legally work in Canada. As a self-employed courier, it is your responsibility to report your earnings on your tax return each year. And although Skip The Dishes does not provide a T4A, they still provide monies paid to each courier along with the name and address of each courier as part of their corporate tax filing. CRA does not need a SIN to identify couriers; they can always use other means.
