Signing Up for Doordash: Requirements, Orientation, and FAQ
As you guys know, I’m always looking for new opportunities when it comes to the rideshare game. When I first started driving for Uber and Lyft in 2014, I was making $20-$30/hr every time I went out but I knew that wouldn’t last. I was actually making more per hour from driving for Uber than I was at my day job as an engineer. But after a few rate cuts, things have obviously changed. I still go out and make decent money, but it’s about in line with what you’d expect an Uber driver to make.
I learned a lot from the entire experience though, and one of the big takeaways for me was that a lot of these companies provide the best opportunity when they’re just getting started. If you’ve talked to founding Lyft drivers or OG Uber drivers, you know that companies have a lot to spend in the beginning and they’re not really worried about profitability, so that’s why you see big sign-up bonuses, guaranteed pay, etc.

In my last article, I talked about why so many drivers are signing up for DoorDash. Today I’m going to detail what that actual sign-up process is like, and tell you about what I learned at my DoorDash orientation. [Read more…]
