Overall Reviews at Favor
Delivery Driver | Houston, TX | Mar 13, 2019
Favor advertisement of pay to work for favor is way higher than the truth. Reality depends on where you live. I live in a suburban area I get low tips and travel further. I get 9-10 an hour before expenses. The richer the customer the least they tip. I can manage 1 delivery every 35 to 1 hour depending on what is ordered. The 9 dollar guarantee includes your tips so if you make 2.10 favor pay plus 6.90 tip that will be your pay... it’s nice when I would have made 7 an hour and they top it up to 9 per hour. Once in a while I encounter a bug in their app where instead of sending me to the customers house they send me to another store location so now I triple check which address is plugged into my map app from favor app. The in app support is super awesome. Hours are hard to grab so be fast. I stay with favor because I need a super flexible schedule. Overall don’t expect to get more than 7-11 an hour. Use this as extra cash in your pocket not as a job
ProsFlexible schedule, awesome support team
ConsLow pay, hours are rare for guaranteed pay

Hit or miss? A constant question.
Hardest parts of the job are communication between both you and the customer as well as you and support, competitiveness of shifts, and what you earn versus how much it costs to earn it. I believe if you live where you can deliver on a bike or happen to have an incredibly fuel efficient car, as I do not, you'll do alright.
Typical day of work depends on if you were able to land a shift. On an actual shift you are guaranteed at least one order, whereas working on your own is just a waiting game most of the time.
Most enjoyable part of the job is all the different people you get to interact with, and all the places you visit that you didn't even know existed that you can plan to go try when you're not working.
You meet management at orientation. Very nice people who make the process painless and quick. I was on the job straight out of orientation.
ProsMaking your own schedule.
ConsCommunication, cost vs earnings

Very relaxed job for extra cash
I started doing this in Dec 17 to make extra cash for gifts. I was surprised at how much I made and it literally felt like doing a favor for someone. I like that you can put yourself on the schedule and are guaranteed at least $9 if tips aren't great or you don't make anything. But I would only put myself on if I was gonna actually do it. Cancelling a shift last minute takes you out of the early access to the schedule. (It fills up quick!) When I started I had an issue with how I was sent to places but now they've done the city in areas so you only stay where you want to work which is so much easier on your car and gas. Support is amazing and they try to get back to you asap if you need to unexpectedly log out or want to reject a favor. You can even let them know what deliveries you won't feel comfortable doing and they can filter you out of those.
ProsExploring your city and seeing what various restaurants have.
ConsWear on your car

Fun, easy going job but should be a second job- not the one you make a living from
Favor is a great side job or transition job, but it's very hard to make a living off of it. They're constantly hiring more people, so it get's harder and harder to find hours on the schedule to work. If you have enough hours, you can make a decent amount of money, but if you can't get on the schedule, it's impossible to live off of. I got this job as a transition job while I was moving from home to College Station, and I had intended to find another job quickly after. If you just need a second job, then favor would be the best option for you because you can (almost) make your own schedule.
ProsYou make your own schedule, you wear what you want, you get to talk to a ton of people and see new places.
ConsYou put a ton of miles on your car and waste gas, you can't always get on the schedule, sometimes it gets stressful when there is an issue with the maps or customers.

Favor has a scheduling system where one can have a guaranteed hourly minimum--IF ONLY, you can secure one on the app it is worth your time. I believe my particular market is over-saturated and it is rare that I secure a guaranteed shift. This scenario results in me just hanging out in a market, waiting for the left-over gigs that other runners are unable to fill. Favor DOES NOT pay for mileage or wait time. That's where they rob the runner. My TIME is my ONLY RESOURCE in the gig economy. Other gigs pay for mileage and wait time--last night ran a Favor where I waited 52 minutes at a restaurant for a food order of less than $20 for which I had called ahead for 15 minutes prior to arriving the restaurant--over 1 hour for one order for which I earned $2.10 Favor delivery fee + $4 tip--I am more valuable than this.

I ran as well as been a customer for Favor, neither one is enjoyable. Running for favor, I would run about 5-7 hours a day making about $4-7 a run. In a day I would make anywhere from $15-45, at the time I thought was good until I realized I'm basically making gas money I would use just to deliver.
As a customer far worse end of the stick, not only are you up charged fees for simply items, wait times are high, but the customer service honestly sucks. I placed an order Sunday after for a kids meal that would typically be around$6-7 and was charged $27.70 for it, not mention the place is 7 minutes away from my house. I tried sending emails text and calls to not get a clear answer as to why I was charged this. After looking at door dash and Uber eats I know where to go now.
ConsLow pay, poor management

Flexible Easy Way To Earn Extra Money and Serve the community
I like the flexibility of signing up for whichever areas of town I want to work in and set my own schedule to accommodate my personal life. It is fair pay, and your earning potential and growth is only limited by yourself. Their support is great, they pay on time, they provide all of the information you need when you do a personal run, such as closest store/restaurant/etc to the client's home to optimize efficient service delivery. You can always contact support while working and when not working. They also remind you when the schedule is up for you to schedule yourself. It can be fun and rewarding.
ProsFlexible, Great Support, Fair Pay, Pay on time, Tips can be good too
ConsNot all clients tip

Knowledgeable and Family Friendly
Colleagues I have worked with are all very passionate and have some sort of personal experience in the area of their jobs. Very compassionate and caring individuals who want to empower other families and individuals with the challenges of behavioral health in children. Willing to educate anyone who is touched by someone whom has special abilities, mental health issues, and even medical home questions. Wanting to change the system to make it easier to access when families are in crisis and need help.
ProsAtmosphere being part of a bigger family. Family Friendly
Conscost of medical coverage, and salary increase

Flexible schedule as a delivery driver
Delivery as a Favor Runner is very convenient. You're able work when you want and however long you want. The bad part is there is only a base pay rate if you've scheduled yourself previously and pay is based off of customer tips. You could have a $50+ order and the customer only gives you a $2 tip. Everything including the address and order, is dealt through the app so it is convenient and has minimal customer interaction. It was nice to drive around and explore the area as I was new to it and quickly learned the area.
Prosvery flexible schedule
ConsSteady pay is not guaranteed, gas is not paid for

Working with mental health child
My job entails working with family to come up with a plan for there child because of there behaviors. I would often meet the child at school and also in the home . I would talk to the family and child to find out why there having problems and how we are able to fix them so the family can function as a whole . There some children who might have been in trouble with the law and I would visit them at the juvenile and get them ready to interact with the family again. I would drive to different county in the Georgia area to meet with the family along with a case coordinator.
