Some of the “Dashers” SHOULD QUIT! They are getting more and more horrible! Long wait, orders delivered to the wrong place, food lukewarm, and not friendly.
I strongly suggest doing with a partner because not only is it easier to find house numbers and increase the delivery time but in some neighborhood's it is a safe alternative to leaving your car unattended and someone to call emergency services if something should happen. Yes use a partner if possible
I would recommend fast pay as many times as needed, not just one time. This is a lot of people’s main job and we need to get to our money more often a day. I would also recommend pay for the wait times at merchants and pay for mileage. Also it would be nice to have more peaks a week. We seem to make the most money on holidays. I been a top dasher for 8 months and would like to be paid to travel to other states that need more dashers if the pay was good and my hotel, gas and food was taken care of, I want to travel more because with so many people doing DoorDash it affects us too dashers because we aren’t gaining much of an advantage compared to regular dashers, we especially should have more advantages as top dashers and for how long we have been working for DoorDash.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make DoorDash a better place to work?
🤔 hmm. Before accepting an order, it'll say the total profit (pay and tip) sometimes itll be more than you accepted. But i wish we has the option to block customers. Sometimes they make a huge $100 order and will only tip $3. Or they're rude. So blocking customers for future convenience. Also, the help button was more helpful all the time. Sometimes I'm literally taking a few seconds to give the customers food directly and after aboht 2 mins I guess it'll ask if you need help with the order bcuz it says you're at the address but cant fund customer. But I was one time stuck outside a gate for a cusromer i couldn't ger ahold of and i mever got that option to say i couldnt find them. I still don't know what to do, do i take the food or leave it if i cant dind them at these complexes?
Anytime, for me personally tho, i follow the commandment and take a day of rest. So Fri sunset to Sat sunset, i am off the clock
You can start at anytime, and anywhere. Sometimes I will go get a mcds burger and start my rounds and have a burger to eat while I wait for orders. Sometimes itll come in fast, sometimes it'll be awhile. May have to drive around for a bit. I'll get an order and check my stuff (nothing less than $5, the distance) if taken, i go to my order. Sometimes I'll get a 2nd order either super close or at the same place. You can decline. I have been doing this thing where my goal is $50/day. Usually its done in 2 hours, but in those off days just have to stop that round and try again at night. I had my 2nd Grocery order and this one was far. So was the first but I was giving them a chance. Basically i went more than 12 miles, had to struggle for a bit with parking, and they gave no tip. Was a waste. In time you learn what you want to accept and all that.
Sometimes you get a bad rating for no reason. Like your customer's burger had unwanted pickles on it and they blame you even though you have no control over that. Ratings can get you fired if they get bad enough, and can also affect your eligibility for top dasher benefits, so it can be stressful to get a bad one for no reason.
Also, there are occasionally scammers who try to claim you never delivered their food so they can get free food.
