I second what everyone else here has said. Go back to the old pay model. I dashed today for almost 3 hours and made $8.96! The Bay Area dashers are always getting incentive bonuses of up to $8 per delivery during peak hours. I dash in the Sac area and we don’t ever get more than $2! The zone for Citrus Heights/Folsom is so spread out (and there’s really only one route to get through it) that I am constantly having to decline orders over 20 miles (30+ minutes of driving) for $7 payouts. It’s become so bad that I can’t even afford the gas to dash everyday. And I work 7 days a week and can barely pay my bills! Y’all need to get it together and stop neglecting your lifelines (us dashers) who make it possible for you to earn your paychecks, and my guess is they’re a lot healthier than ours are!

Yes, Doordash does not monitor whether or not you have someone in the car. It would be great to have someone in the car whilst delivering because that means you could leave the car running and park closer to the restaurant with your hazards on.

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