Current U/L driver here -- I see a Saturday session has opened for 2/6 here in Pittsburgh.
Question is, is it worth it to start up with Postmates?
I will keep reading the PM threads here and doing research; I do have some questions:
- I know they provide your insulated bag, how good of a job...
I received a ping this morning at 5:30AM PST. I accepted and immediately was called by a 310 area code way outside my area code. (I'm in Central California) he stated that we was from Nebraska and worked for a insurance company. He said my ping was to go to Walgreens 24 hour pharmacy and pick up...
