After you have scheduled a Deliveroo interview, Deliveroo will send you a message with the details of everything you need to bring for the interview. This includes a passport, ID, smartphone, kit (if you want to use your own) and a credit card (if you want to buy the kit).
The Deliveroo Interview
They call it an “interview” but it’s really not. All they do is check your documents and talk you through the app. I don’t think it’s actually possible to fail it. You also need to order all of the gear from them (for a ridiculous price) and then you can get on the road and start earning money!
The office where you have an interview is usually really hard to find. For mine, I had to walk through an estate agents office and then down some stairs to the basement. In the basement were loads of computers and deliveroo boxes stacked high around the desks.
The whole process takes about an hour or so. You start by showing your passport and then they send you a link to download the app and sign up. You also need to choose the are you would like to work in. They’re pretty sneaky about this because when you sign up they make it seem like you can work anywhere you like, but a lot of the places are already full. I wasn’t able to work in my neighborhood and so I had to sign up for the next door one which was a bit of a pain. You also get to select the shifts you want to do. I would recommend selecting every single shift at first and then just missing the ones you can’t do. It’s so much easier to get rid of shifts than it is to get new ones, and Deliveroo is super chill about you not turning up to shifts every now and again. You’ll then have to sign are few forms (all done on your phone) and buy the equipment. Make sure you ask for lights and a helmet as well because they give those out for free!
