  • Me and my friends use Doordash as our verb for ordering

  • In our county we have a local food delivery company, and they are a GODSEND, esp this year. The service fee is a flat $5 for orders in town, ~$10 if you're ordering outside of their usual route, I don't believe there's a commission fee for the restaurants AT ALL, the drivers get paid $12 an hour (in a state where $12/hr is a liveable wage), AND I have seen them save more than 1 businesses that were on the brink of *closing* when they first popped up

  • As a delivery driver for doordash, I love the pay (15-40 an hour) and the flexibility . The support sucks but I never felt like they treat me like crap

  • You say "delivery apps" as if the app is the actual greedy and malevolent entity fucking drivers and hungry customers over alike. 'The fuck didn't just say corporations from the get-go? So weird. Anyway, don't get me wrong, good video and I am happy you with a very wide and big audience are covering things like these. Carry on.

  • '...wgich can add up to almost double the cost of the meal.' Umm...you showed a highlighted line that read 91% I believe...so technically what you said is correct but the way you worded it you made it sound like you were saying that the service fees were actually 200% of what you pay without it. Also, having done doordash for awhile, the most money got into my hands when the customer could barely afford the meal so they set the tip to $0.00 and then gave me cash...doordash ended up paying more to make the total enough to get me to take the order and then I got a few bucks cash as a bonus.

  • NEVER EVER EVER TIP IN THE APP! ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS TIP CASH! That way the app is forced to pay the driver the max pay out... while also getting a cash tip.

  • Due to some health issues, I didn't get a license until I was almost 25. Before then, if I wanted restaurant food, I would either have to get someone else to take me there or I would have to order delivery. Now that I can drive to those places, I pretty much never want to pay for delivery again. I wasted so much money back then and driving for 10 minutes is really not that big of a deal.

  • As a Door dash driver, I do not use it, or any similar service, because I understand how shit they are for the customer and seller. Even as a driver you can get completely shafted. I once had to wait 30 minutes for an order that was $8, this was before delivering to the customer by the way. I couldn't drop the order without being punished, and that fucking sucked.

  • Every order. EVERY. FUCKING. ORDER. They fuck up. I’ve ordered off other people’s apps, and those experiences have kept me from downloading their bullshit. That’s all of them. There’s no “best” app. They’re all shit. They’re hoping to become “Too big to fail” to get a bail out while giving the people on top a raise while cutting employee to experiment with driverless vehicles. That’s the future they’re pushing for :-/

  • as a mcdonalds worker i can confirm they dont even say the delivery price, they just say free delivery and add the fee to the foods price. Still doesnt stop people from ordering a single coke who end up paying like 6 bucks just to do so

  • once i ordered a large fri and a 6 piece from McDonalds on doorrdash. They said they had free delivery and it would arrive in 20-23 minutes, and the total was $5. It was 12am so i thought that's not too bad, but I realized when I placed the order the total came out to $15, and it said it would arrive in 45 minutes to an hour. It had been about 10 seconds and I went to cancel it, but they said "the restaurant has already started making your food" and that I would only be able to refund $5.

  • Counter point: I'm a full time stay at home caregiver. All these at-home delivery services make my life a LOT easier. I would have to walk to the fast food place (because I won't take a bus during the pandemic), and either arrive home with cold food, or take a $20 cab ride home. It might cost me like $8 more to have things delivered, but it saves me time and money in the grand scheme of things.

  • What? You don't need to pay drivers a single cent. I had worked delivery for years. You work as a contractor. All you do is take orders as they come up. You are payed a flat delivery fee by the customer every delivery which covers your gas and a little extra. Then you get your tips. It's such a simple system to implement. I'd make 100-200+ dollars a night in like 6-8 hours. . Idk why restaurants don't do this.

  • I work too hard for my money, idk how people can justify paying a 3x premium for being lazy (For the most part, I recognize sometimes you genuinely can’t leave the house). Depending on the state too I can see how some of the stricter lockdowns played into these companies gaining a lot of new costumers, but most places still offer takeout and pretty much every drivethru is open 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • I don't do delivered takeaways. We order from a fish and chip restaurant that is very close to us. And at one point ordered from a further fish and chip shop and had to pick it up. Too far to walk without it going cold. It's from the restaurant themselves we do the ordering. So it's just 'order the fish and chips'.

  • I worked for DoorDash full time was easily the worst job and most inconsistent paying job I’ve ever had. I only advise to do it part time as in 10hours a week if you wanna build a saving or save up for a trip or special occasion. Because one day you’ll make $20 in 30 min the. The next day $9 in an hour. And get this after all that you you gotta pay back your taxes.

  • I’m gonna say the unpopular thing here and and say that the “useless middleman” is the one who made the app, runs customer support, pays for their legal team, pays for outreach to restaurants, pays for promotions to get more drivers and runs the company at the end of the day. No one is forcing you to use their service, as a driver myself I think the pay is pretty competitive and also Uber and others don’t even make a profit lol, but again, NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO USE THE SERVICE

  • The point of running in the red for years while spending exorbitantly on marketing/political issues is to most favorably shape the market decades into the future. These companies are all following the Amazon playbook and tbh with how successful its been and Washington's unwillingness to act as any real antimonopoly check currently can you blame them?

  • I deliver for door dash and it’s a nightmare. You make pocket change from it and it’s terrible. I didn’t know this until after I became a dasher but dashers are considered self employed. When you are self employed you better be ready to set about 30-50% of your earning aside for taxes. And then you prob wanna set half of what you keep aside for gas, and repair for the car. Some days the app will tell me it’s busy but I can sit out in a parking lot with my car running (if it’s hot or cold you have to keep the car on so you don’t freeze or burn up) this can use up about a quarter tank of gas sometimes and then you don’t get an order for about 2 hours and now you’ve lost money. The payout isn’t worth it. Yeah you could prob make a pretty penny if you do all that tax write off and stuff but I’m not educated about that stuff and felt scammed when it was like “it’s an easy job and you can make up to 16$ per hour”. Lastly, and this puts the icing on the cake, you do not get a discount for being a dasher. That should be a given. If door dash is making more than me and the restaurant combined off of one order, I should be able to get a free dash pass. Oh well..
