it was alright

Lots of driving around, and wouldnt get payed as much. Accepting Orders: DoorDash drivers log into the app and accept delivery requests from nearby restaurants. They can choose the orders they want to fulfill based on location and compensation.Picking Up Orders: After accepting an order, drivers head to the restaurant to pick up the food. They must ensure orders are accurate and well-packaged.Navigating Routes: Drivers use GPS navigation to find the quickest and most efficient routes to reach customers' addresses. Time management is crucial to making multiple deliveries in a short timeframe.In summary, a DoorDash delivery driver's job involves accepting and delivering food orders efficiently while providing excellent customer service. It offers flexibility and income potential, making it an attractive option for gig workers.

This place is the worst. It is hard to live with “No” guarantees

There really isn’t anything good about this company outside of sometimes you can pick when you work. Even when it comes to that you have to schedule. If you log off, you can’t log back on if it’s not “busy”. They manipulate drivers to stay on the road and waste their time for “possibly” getting a cheap order. I have done over 10,000 deliveries and have all bags and have completed every single kind of delivery that you can make at DoorDash. It’s not worth it AT ALL. You are not valued at all. You are better off working at McDonald’s. At least you won’t be wasting your time.


Occasionally you get decent orders

Quick and easy way to make money. I love that the app is super easy to navigate. Pay varies per order. You have the option to accept or decline an order.

Excellent company that pays instantly with hourly pay at about $22 an hour and you pay the gas expense.

Food and grocery delivery out of any car with the schedule you choose from 1 hour 1 day to 12 hours 7 days. If you change your mind about working what you scheduled just simply cancel before that time slot starts.


Quick pay


A lot of driving

Productive and fun workplace, self-employed.

I would tend to DoorDash during the late afternoon, early evening because that is usually when it is busy here in my city. The workplace culture is amazing.You get to meet all different types of people with different backgrounds and personalities throughout each delivery.I enjoy meeting people and seeing around my city every night.I have loved the experience since I started working for DoorDash, everything about my job is enjoyable.




Slow days every week

You work by yourself and really just are sent deliveriyvis phone and you pick up and deliver

I drive to my zone that I scheduled for and wait to get orders. It's quite simple, get an order, deliver the order and repeat. Unless you have a major issue that you have to call corporate, you will hardly speak to them ever. As a driver you are your own boss. You can accept or decline orders. I've never ever seen or heard of upper management in the field with us drivers. It's an easy job with no stress plus if you hustle as I do you can meet a decent wage that can support a family.


You can work when and as long as you wishh


No incentive for outstanding drivers, I think the algorithm that chooses the stores needs to be overhauled, s

Good earnings but unvalued as a driver

Good earnings easy work, just dont get any speeding tickets even after you start working for them. Had a clean history when hired, then got 3 tickets later, then got deactivated for the tickets without warning

Easy and Flexible Scheduling

Hard to get on the weekly schedule, but if you're in a busy area it's not too hard to get online when it's busy. Nice to be able to choose which jobs to take and which to pass on, and very nice flexibility for sticky life situations where having a normal schedule is hard.

Good for extra cash

If you want to work on your own time 100% and by yourself, become a dasher. It can be great for extra cash if you know where to dash. Becoming a full time dasher can take a lot of effort.

Delivery, App signup, instant pay

You sign up through the app, provide vehicle information and when done with delivery slot, pay is instant if you so choose. Customer service is usually on point


Session payouts are instant


Lots of low paying gigs, must accept all gigs so your acceptance rate doesn’t go down

It is your own Schedule

I love DoorDash because I can work when I want to...BUT, you have to put your time in to get the schedule/s you want. The hardest part of the job is apartment complexes especially at night!


You can work when you want to


The restaurant is out of the food they ordered

Good part about it is that you can make your own schedule.

Only issue is they will need to raise the pay of drivers having to travel farther than expected because 11/12$ tip for a 20 minute drive isn’t ok. Period


Earn money each delivery


Sometimes not enough pay for travel

Fun environment

Great place to work on your own time creating your own schedule and amount of time spent working. It works perfect for me as I can drop my kids off at school, work for the day and have enough time to pick them up afterwards

They take you off the platform

My ratings were all good they took me off the platform for canceling an order due to having a flat tire I appealed it and I've had no answer back and I've been a good driver for a couple years now

Poor Pay and treat their dasher poorly.

Very rude to dashers and usually know less about DoorDash then us dasher. No help in odd situations. They even try not to pay when the restaurant cancels an order.
