** Lampshaded ''and'' serves as a plot point in ''Future Stock'' when the company is taken over by the 80's guy Steve Castle. Leela points out that, despite all his peacocking and gloating, the company hasn't made one delivery since he took over. [[spoiler:Of course, his only motivation is to make the company look like a rival to Mom's Friendly Delivery Company to raise their stock and sell the company to make a fortune. He doesn't actually need to make deliveries to do that]].
** Lampshaded in another episode where Bender isn't sure what they do, but guesses they're a bus service.

*** In "Law and Oracle," he implausibly insists that he's still the company chef when Leela tries to get him to make the actual delivery, "delivery boy" Fry having recently quit his job. When Leela responds by asking for something to eat, he stalks out of the room, returns with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and throws it at her.

** Speaking of Bender, his own position at Planet Express is pretty unclear. For most of the first season, he doesn't even have any actual job. Then he becomes the chef, and is [[LethalChef dangerously terrible at it]]. By the time of the revival, he's been bumped up to "assistant manager of sales".
