The management team should do more for their dedicated drivers with good ratings, especially since the driver is the face of the company. For example, with these new fast pay qualifications, they should give drivers fast pay immediately after hitting 25 deliveries if they have good ratings. I have been with the company for only one week, and so has my boyfriend. He got one of the new Walmart orders by pure luck a few days ago, and since then he's gotten two more, and those automatically pay an extra 3 dollars. On top of that, they unlocked his fast pay too. My ratings are better than his and I have not gotten to do any Walmart orders, I'm still broke waiting to get paid, and I don't get to qualify for any of the cool beta stuff because I didn't get lucky enough to get a Walmart order. I just feel that some aspects are unfair.
Another example, the other night I wanted to try the Manchester area so I worked through dinner. I had scheduled myself until 10 but I ended up ending my dash early because I was so angry. They sent me to a restaurant that was 28 minutes from where I was at, and approximately 23 minutes back to the customers house, and you know how much more I made than my average total on that order? A dollar more. For me to go out of the actual dashing area I scheduled myself in, and go to an area I'm not even familiar with or comfortable driving in.
So yeah, it would be great to give more incentives. Even if it was competitions to win the incentives, you would keep way more drivers. I worked as a delivery driver and manager at a local pizza place for years when I was a bit younger, so I've learned quite a bit over the years.

They used to pay daily, but now you have to have a total of at least 25 lifetime deliveries and been a member for at least two weeks to qualify for what is now called "fast pay." You can only use fast pay once a day, and it charges you a fee each time. Hope that helps

No, but since the employees are considered sole proprietors gas and mileage is a tax right off

The main reason I would leave would be the wear and tear on my vehicle. I worry that this job is going to run my car into the ground. If they provided more incentives to their drivers with good ratings it might help their drivers to stay.

Independent, no pay raises, no security, no supervision, no reference when you look for another job. You are a number not a human.

Door dash has an option to where you can make a schedule to reserve that time slot for that particular area. However, you don't have to follow it. You can end your session anytime you like. Also, there are slow periods sometimes where an area will have an overload of drivers, ESPECIALLY during lunch and dinner times. The area map is pretty accurate about showing how badly the area needs drivers though. I always just go to another area.
