What I liked

It was easy and I could do it on my own time.

It's still not a real job job so that has its drawbacks.

Food Delivery Driver

June - August 2019 • Boulder, CO

What I liked

I liked the flexibility of hours and freedom to pursue jobs in different location over the period of one summer.

What I wish was different

I wish the wages would be slightly higher and that DoorDash would provide all of its tips to its drivers instead of taking a portion of the tip.

Advice

Try to only pursue deliveries that are during peak pay hours and/or very busy hours to ensure a steady flow of deliveries.

Higher pay.

food delivery

June - August 2019 • Las Cruces, NM

What I liked

The flexibility to create my own schedule was a big bonus and it was also convenient that had the opportunity to work in whatever city I happened to be in.

What I wish was different

The pay was job-based and there were times you got a delivery that required you to go across town to pick up the food then delivery and you only receive a small fee.

Advice

It's a great opportunity to gain customer service experience as well as time management skills. The pay is not enough for a primary source of income, good spending money.
