I saw this trick the other day on reddit, it was on ICEBOX, so i try it on other maps, it works on every map. I don't think it's a bug, because it's similar to doomfist in overwatch.
My husband lost his job due to covid and we have 4 kids. I signed up for doordash to help pay bills. I absolutely love it and the fact we do it as a family is a bonus. My husband drive and I get the food to deliver. Anyone else do deliveries with you family??
First I never ever would have excepted this order had I seen the drop off instructions. I get to the house and see that the drop off instructions say "DROP OF TO THE BACKDOOR....KNOCK ON BACK DOOR". I could tell that there was an apartment attached to a house. I still felt uneasy and the sun was going down. I didn't know what to do in this situation, in hindsight I should have just left it at the front and let the asshole figure out where his food was. I walk back there, ready to fight someone if I have to, and I see the door is cracked and a hand on the knob. I say "hello, door dash"...and the dude just grunts. So I say it louder. A dude who is clearly messed up, opens the door and HE'S NOT WEARING ANY PANTS. I basically throw the food at the guy and run back to my car. Later on, I filed an incident report and door dash called me 5 minutes after I filed it. Basically went "we care for your safety, but there is no way to make sure you never have to deliver to this person again, we'll add this to the feedback for door dash". The lady was nice enough and felt for my situation, but her hands were tied. Here's hoping I don't get fucked up Phil with no pants again. 🙄
I really can't complain with dashing- I do it on the side and can earn an extra $20-$30 more an hour on most nights when I dash. However, there are some pet peeves that I have, which I wish DD would address:
Fix the damn issue with customers requesting to have a no contact delivery and then putting "hand it to customer" in the instructions. This is just annoying and makes the process more difficult for both dasher and customer.
Stop offering orders outside of my current work zone. If you do offer them, don't count a declined order against a dasher acceptance rate. I know most people don't care about that, but I try to get a top dasher spot every month as it makes scheduling much easier for me. I regularly make $25-$30 an hour so I found a good balance for me for accepting decent orders and rejecting crap and still maintaining the 70% required.
Don't suggest stacked orders as "on your route" when it's an extra 5+ miles. I had several offers that were 10+ miles recently. Not good for the customer or dasher.
Allow dashers to rate customers. Some of the most demanding customers are the low or no tippers. I rarely will take a no tipper, but I may take a low tipper if it's a stack and really on my route. I routinely find that these customers have so many ridiculous request that it just ticks me off. I have no qualms about going above and beyond for folks as long as they can demonstrate respect and give a decent tip. I would love nothing more than to see no tippers wait a long time and prioritize good tippers via a waiting system. I hate when I get a $6 order and then see after completion that the customer did not tip.
Add the ability for a customer to easily add/increase a tip after delivery.
Give an extra 10 seconds to accept and order...while I can quickly analyze an order and accept within a few seconds, there are times when I'm not going to do that while driving or risk a ticket. Just add a few more seconds so we can pull over to review.
Where it makes sense, offer stack orders after a pickup. I know some people don't like stacks, but I do. I will get a stack offer when I arrive at a restaurant ...maybe just add the ability to offer orders shortly after a pickup or if you're driving past a restaurant that has the order ready.
have a quicker way to get to support. I will say that support is generally fairly quick, but why do we have to go through a ton of options to get support. Have a direct number or link to chat support
I have 3771 Dashes. Did about 3000 since last August so I’ve been really going at this hard. I love driving and customer support that’s why my ratings for friendliness and contact are high. The past couple weeks I’ve just been feeling lazy , at the house (air bNb) all the time.
I'll be completely honest here... IDK if it was because I was on quarantine for a long time or I'm just excited to have a second income that can make me over 700 a week..
But doing doordash all day has been really relaxing to me for some reason!
I play my favorite tunes.. have the craziest conversations with other dasher I meet in stores..
I have bring my fiance along and we do quick little dates when I need to take a break.. well within the budget of course
But "currently" lol just currently, I'm finding this very relaxing.. plus I'm making 150-200+...
Do any of y'all dash all day? Ive only been doing it for 2 weeks so I'm still fresh.. like I just got fast pay lmao.. I'm new new lol
