I Now Drive for DoorDash

Here’s how it differs from Uber Eats.

Recently I complained about the working conditions for Uber Eats. Well, since then, I have been accepted by DoorDash. Is it any better? Eh…

The first thing that’s noticeably different about DD is the method for going online. Rather than just going online like with UE, you have to choose a surge area and go there. If there’s no surge area, you can’t go online. The surge area might be ten miles away and even when you get arrive, there’s no guarantee you’ll get good orders. You could end up wasting a lot of time and gas.

Another interesting aspect is the ability to reserve your spot ahead of time. That way, you’ll be guaranteed the opportunity to work an area at the scheduled time. Supposedly, there’s a limit to how many people can be in one place at any given time.

DoorDash presents you with orders similar to how UE does it. You are given the projected total, the restaurant name, the location, estimated time to complete, etc.

You might end up getting slightly more money than projected, although it’s best not to count on that. Interestingly, DD gives you the number of items in advance, unlike UE. Since large orders pay more, this makes it easier to gauge the tip size (or lack thereof).

Unfortunately, rejecting a crappy order is more of a hassle on DD. When you choose not to take an order, the app tries guilt-tripping you into accepting.

And if you push forward with the rejection, the app demands to know why you’re not accepting it.
