Have you ever wished you could deliver food with a friend? It sounds great: go out with your friend or spouse, pick up food, chat, maybe earn more than you could on your own. But how does it work? Senior RSG contributor Dash Bridges covers what it’s like to deliver food with a friend below.
Hello, fellow Dashers! It’s been a while and to be honest, my dashing is a little rusty.
But as you may recall, my dashing background is that I dash on the side as a supplement to my regular day job. Several months ago, I was laid off from that job. It wasn’t the best paying job in the world — SOME of us in Silicon Valley are neither venture capitalists nor master coders, ok? – but it was a full-time salaried position with benefits.
Unfortunately, unemployment is a little wonky and, without going on about the details, it actually made more sense given my DoorDash hours/earnings and unemployment benefits to… not work. Yeah.
Obviously, I’m searching for a full-time salaried job. My unemployment benefits have both a monetary and time limit, and dashing isn’t going to pay all the bills, anyway. Why not let us collect both? It’s a major disincentive to work. These laws are outdated to the modern day multi-job realities. But I digress…
Today I want to share my experience dashing with a friend – the goal is to bring a second person along to make the delivery process more efficient. Doesn’t it seem convenient? Your colleague drops you off right at the restaurant and residence door, then swings back around to pick you up. Or vice versa. What a concept! But does it really work?
The best way to maximize your ridesharing and delivery income is to sign up for multiple services like Uber Eats, Postmates, and Lyft. That way when one of the apps is slow, you can use another one. Click here to sign up for more delivery services.
