Tell us your favorite Dispatch story!
I love those long drives that I can sometimes get with Dispatch, with the atmosphere of a road trip and a great day behind the wheel!
Why should other people drive for Dispatch?
Dispatch offers drivers a flexible schedule to work when they want to work or take days off without worrying about getting permission from the boss. Drivers also get the opportunity to build rapport with regular customers to form strong relationships and a good sense of camaraderie, as well as assist businesses in their larger community.
What’s your favorite thing about being able to set your own hours?
I like to be able to start work early. Working with apps like Dispatch allows me to get going as early as I want in the mornings or to work as late as I want into the day.
If you could give any advice to other drivers at Dispatch, what would it be?
Keep the Dispatch app open with your navigation app (in pop-up view) overlaid on top of it, so you can catch Dispatch jobs as they come in. This way, you can take advantage of opportunities as they come.
