DoorDash is a technology company that connects customers with local businesses. Customers order meals and other items from their favorite local merchants, and Dashers deliver them directly to their doors. Dashers are third-party contractors who deliver for merchants to customers. *Dashers are paid on a per delivery basis, not per hour.
DoorDash, the food ordering and delivering app, does not hire delivery drivers. Drivers sign up as freelance independent contractors. They pick up take-out orders from local restaurants and deliver them.
Jobs at DoorDash provide flexibility according to the schedule of the driver. A DoorDash delivery driver has flexible hours that let drivers earn easy pay on their own time. Dashers can work part-time positions for a few hours on weekdays or full-time jobs on weekends.
A food delivery driver at DoorDash set up their available time slots on their accounts. A DoorDash driver selects their available time and preferred locations to make deliveries. Once a Dasher is in the location, they click on ‘Dash Now’ to become open to receiving delivery requests.
Once a food delivery driver accepts a request, they go to the restaurant and pick up the take-out order. Then Dasher drives to the user’s given address to deliver the take-out order. With some order requests, each DoorDash driver receives specific instructions. These instructions can be ‘Don’t ring the bell’ or ‘Will pick up from outside.’
A DoorDash delivery driver can pick and choose the delivery requests they accept, which is up to them. A delivery request has details such as the type of order, location, address, distance, time, pay, and tips. A DoorDash driver reviews these details and decides if they would like to accept. Part-time Dashers do not need to complete a specific number of deliveries a day.
The DoorDash app's navigation system and GPS location give the best-suggested routes. Dashers use this navigation system to reach any destination. Drivers can also contact the user or the restaurant from the DoorDash app if they have any questions about the area directions, etc.
Instead of earning a fixed hourly wage, a DoorDash driver earn a base fee on every take-out order delivery request they accept. The base fee varies for each delivery request. It includes the type of order, the number of items, distance, location, time. Drivers can also earn tips that are 100% their own.
The company deposits a delivery driver's earnings into their bank account every week. The deposit includes many tips, incentives, and bonuses you received throughout the week. Full-time Dashers can use the Instant Pay feature to withdraw their earnings.
