Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Courier Driver in DoorDash

Love working whenever and wherever I like

You can enjoy this job and make as much money as you decide to dedicate to it. I make my own schedule, and work the hours I choose. I have funny moments every week. My regular restaurants now recognize and are extremely friendly. I love it! I do work a lot of hours, and I love driving. But I'm always bringing my customers exactly what they want, so they're happy. I make it so I have positive interactions, great environment for me!


Set my own hours


Lot of miles on your own vehicle...but I rent :)

Great to be able to earn some money and still be flexible for my families schedule.

Great!Contacting a real person and getting issues professionally handled when needed it not your forte! Dasher Support is horrible!But the job and flexibility are great!Base pay could be better! Especially on certain orders…..longer distance, long wait at merchant! Retail/grocery order’s should have higher base pay!

Flexibly scheduling

Pay used to be good. You could average $20/hour and spend about $15 on gas. Now you’re lucky to get $20 during lunch and dinner rushes. DoorDash continues to lower base pay, and now they only pay drivers $2 per order. They are making customers shoulder your pay. Don’t work here.


Freedom in scheduling


Low pay doesn’t cover cost of wear and tear on vehicle
