DoorDash

DoorDash Driver

May 2021 • Bloomingdale, IL

What I liked

Being a Dasher is an extremely flexible job. Therefore, I had a chance to pick my own schedule and choose when and where I wanted to work.

What I wish was different

I wish that restaurant pick up time had been more accurate because order would take over 15 minutes to get ready sometimes.

Advice

If you want a job that is flexible and also pays a fairly good amount while attending school, DoorDash is the way to go. A bonus is that you will often get promotional events that help bring in more money.

Be your own boss and I was able to have any free time I needed. I got to work on my time not someone else's. Also got paid fairly decent.

What I wish was different

I wish the base pay for each delivery was better.

Advice

Communicate with the customer if the order is ready earlier or later than usual as you.

Food Delivery driver

June 2020 • Indianapolis, IN

What I liked

I love going to places I’ve never seen before! This includes restaurants and neighborhoods. I also love the tips that motivate me to keep going. I’ve made pretty good money since I’ve worked at it so much. It has allowed me to buy my textbooks and some of my tuition! Most importantly, I love that I’m on my own schedule; I’m able to DoorDash whenever I’m available, which is really helpful when working around homework!

What I wish was different

I wish I felt safer at all times, but for the most part, I feel pretty safe. Sometimes I just get nervous going out alone as a young girl. I also wish everyone tipped; I think it’s rude when people tip nothing after the hard work and gas I put in.

Advice

I would advise to keep in contact with your customers! I’ve noticed that when I texted my customers, whether I’m going to be late or not, they tend to increase their tip. Most of them like hearing updates on their order. I would also highly advise not to waste time on low-paying orders. For instance, if an offer comes up for $3 and the distance is long, definitely decline.

Driver

August 2020 • Pleasanton, CA

What I liked

I mainly enjoyed the flexible schedule and often generous tips.

What I wish was different

I wish the pay were a bit higher since deliveries are sometimes only $2-3 if the customer does not tip. I also spent a lot on gas and wish I actively kept better track of my miles for tax purposes.

Advice

I would not have Doordash as your main source of income. It is meant to be a flexible side gig.

July - August 2020 • Lawrenceville, GA

What I liked

I loved picking up and delivering food to customers.

What I wish was different

I wish that drivers were paid more money for longer routes.

Advice

One piece of advice I would give is to set a time for a lunch break. It’s easy to forget that you need to eat while being focused on taking orders.
