OrderUp [Take Menu Orders from Home at $12 an HR!]

OrderUp Offers Work at Home Jobs

OrderUp Offers Great Pay for Simply Helping People Place a Food Order

I don't know why this job appeals to me so much. But it does. And hey, I'm not a huge “work on the phone” all day fan. But this job actually sounds a bit fun. Or at least less stressful than many other customer service type jobs. Have you ever done roadside assistance or mobile support? Let me tell you — those are stressful and you get a Mr. Grumpy Pants or Miss Huffy about every other call. Sooooo NOT fun.

So anyway — I came across this job and I wanted to write about it and share it with you.

Who is OrderUp?

OrderUp is kind of like the Uber of food (Come to think of it, now Uber has food delivery too via UberEATS. They offer delivery jobs that you might want to check out too! And Doordash offers an opp to set your own hours delivering food to costumers as a “Dasher”.). Uber, of course, delivering people to their destinations and OrderUp delivering food to its destination. OrderUp allows you to order your meal from a list of restaurants that is both plentiful and hip. Not only that – but they offer a cool app to track your delivery and even a share-pay link so that if you have a bunch of friends or family altogether ordering (even co-workers!) – you can easily split the cost.

So basically it's pizza delivery — but not. It's all kinds of food delivery which is awesome.

OrderUp is similar to GrubHub, but OrderUp was just acquired by Groupon. To me, that is a very good sign as far as longevity and growth.

What Does the Actual Job Entail?

Pretty much what I've already stated. But specifically, here is what is posted for their job listing:

Specifically, you will be tasked with:

Making outbound calls to restaurants and diners to place consumer orders for pick-up.
Making outbound calls to consumers about any issues that pertain to their order.
Updating make times in the dispatcher after placing the pick-up orders.
Communicating in the Delivery Support room regarding the call-in orders.
Calling in at least eight orders an hour. This is subject to change as processes and technology changes.

Additionally, there are requirements in order to work at home — these are typical of many work at home jobs:

Computer Requirements:

Subscription to a reliable, high-speed, hard-wired, bi-directional Internet connection, DSL or Cable (no satellite or wireless Internet service)
3 Mbps downstream, or greater
A laptop with Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Apple Macintosh with OSX 10.7 Lion or above.
Minimum 20 GB free hard drive disk space
Minimum 6 GB RAM
Intel i3, i5, i7 processors or AMD equivalent.
Monitor with minimum screen resolution of 1024×768 (1280×1024 recommended)
If the program you are hired for requires a separate monitor, you need to have a 17 ‘” or larger monitor with your equivalent laptop output (HDMI or VGA) and applicable connector cable.
Sound card and speakers to listen to audio files
Current Anti-Virus software with updated definitions
Current anti-spyware software (SYKES Home recommends: Super Anti-Spyware, Emsisoft Anti-Malware or Malwarebytes)
Firewall installed & operating -or- Windows firewall turned on
Google Chrome with Google Hangouts Plugin Installed
A webcam (can be integrated into your laptop)
USB headset. Logitech H390 or equivalent

And of course – they require a certain set of skills and traits:

Ideally have at least one year of customer service or call center experience
Ability to work in office and remotely from home office (only Maryland residents please)
Ability to work evenings, weekends, and holidays
Good phone presence
A willingness to learn and adapt
Strong attention to detail and ability to follow direction
Solid verbal and written communication skills to effectively communicate
Ability to work effectively in a team oriented, high demand and fast paced environment

So the Pay is $12 an Hour?

The job ad states that compensation for full-time employees is $12 an hour. But they also note perks too:


Fun, get-things-done work environment
Ability for rapid professional growth in a quickly growing company
Competitive comp package
Health benefits – medical & dental with company contribution
Paid time off
Laid back culture and casual dress
Free lunch, drinks, snacks, and social functions!

Of course, some of the perks apply to those that work IN HOUSE and not to those that work at home.

Final Thoughts on Working for OrderUp

OrderUp is headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland. The talent behind this machine is a former AOL exec and long time internet pioneer, Steve Case. So OrderUp is in good hands.

Although, I see conflicting info –I don't think you have to live in Maryland. But I'm not positive on that. Would love for someone to chime in below in the comments section if there is a firm answer on this.

I do see this is their job listing:

Ability to work in office and remotely from home office (only Maryland residents please)

But I am hoping this is open nationwide — if not now, eventually. But in any case, I know many of my readers reside in Maryland, so a boon for them! I would certainly apply. Here is the most current link I found to apply.

***Update: OrderUp is now part of GrubHub — I do have a post on Grubhub too, or you can go straight to Grubhub's career page, here.

But just in case this really appeals to you…. fear not. Here are a few other jobs that are similar:
