I forgot to mention that even the ones where you get to understand the rules CHANGE the rules according to the manpower they have that particular night. Not enough people? Close the lobby, close the lobby early, etc.etc..Same problem in my area for both McDonalds and Chick-fil-a. Some I can go into the lobby and get out quick, others are a must miss. Shouldn't be this hard.
You would be amazed. I used to feel the same way. Have to reject most trips but these days uber eats pays better than x if you know what you are doing at the right time of day. Roughly 15% of my trips are eats now and I'm easily grossing 30 an hour at the appropriate times. Another tool in the arsenal.Why are we even having this discussion ?
who in the right mind will do Ubereat delivery ?
My criteria are similar. Fast pickup, average out to $30 an hour (ex. 7.50 for 15 minutes estimated) and over a buck a mile.I forgot to mention that even the ones where you get to understand the rules CHANGE the rules according to the manpower they have that particular night.

These are just part of the reason FF is usually a no go for me. For me to take a FF offer the payout has to be $8.50 or higher, a place with quick turnaround, and the offer has to be low miles. It's either a quick money, fast, low mileage delivery or a no go. My FF criteria eliminates 90% of FF offers!
Who the h3ll would pay $22 for a Del Taco?... I got a $22 ping at DellTaco and they had their 💩 together and had my order ready when I got there, and I didn’t have to go through their long ass drive thru.
Out of several dozen McD’s that I’ve been to, i’ve only found 1 LOCATION that will being the food out to the driver late at night.Got a $15 ping at McDonald’s, got there pulled into the delivery driver parking spot, call them to let them know what order number and what spot I was parked in and the lady says “we don’t send our people outside after 10 PM you’ll need to go through the drive-thru”. Mind you the drive-through had probably 30 to 40 cars in it, I canceled and got the hell out of there. So F U McDonald’s
That was likely a promotional offer to spend XYZ. So those three drinks were actually free, aside from the tip left for you.I had someone pay $27 for 3 fancy cold tea drinks. I don't know whether that's coming out of their pocket or uber is paying more to make it happen. Was happy to take the money for a25 minute trip.
What makes you think the next driver decided to wait in a drive-thru line with more 20 cars in it ? Or the next ? Or the next ? Or the next ?The OP didn’t prove anything other than a ‘mental win’. It’s not like Mcdonalds is like ‘Oh, we just a lost a driver because we didn’t bring the order outside....’The next driver scored that same delivery for a higher rate/payout.
who the hell is working those hours...geeezI disagree. It is unreasonable to expect a delivery driver to wait 20 minutes to pick up an order.
Even worse. I had a large order to pick up at 3 am and I get there, wait 5, then get told, we are down while we switch over to breakfast.
My dad asked me the same thing about late hours. Well I’ve done late night deliveries to hospital workers, construction crews, parking attendants, security guards, people working at places like 7-11 and Circle K, fire stations, etc.who the hell is working those hours...geeez
