In the past few years, food delivery start ups have grown mani-fold owing to higher demand and the ease of ordering food. However, if you always thought that food delivery executives are poorly paid then brace up for some surprise. Given the strong growth in the number of monthly orders, delivery executives get handsome salaries apart from monthly incentives if they complete orders well in time (especially during peak hours and rains). Moreover, the amount they earn per order is also significantly higher. Executives in cities with higher demand like Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru are getting paid Rs 80-Rs 120 per order, including incentives.
Various food delivery start-ups also provide good part-time job opportunities for students, who can undertake the job of food delivery on weekends and during in the night shift. For week-end jobs, they are paid around Rs 1100.
Recently, A Redditor posted a screenshot of a job posting in Goa in which a delivery boy was mentioned to get Rs 22,000 per month as compared to a teacher who will be paid Rs 10000 a month. The Redditor posted the screenshot with this message: “And then they say quality of Education is going down. But apparently shaping young minds is not even as important as delivering food.”
Soon many reacted on the post. Check out comments:

In order to stay ahead of competition, food delivery platforms Swiggy, Zomato and UberEats, have almost doubled the salaries of their delivery executives.
