If u want cold food, 2 hours after u order this is perfect.
By cjef josh
Honestly, I understand it isn’t economical to only hire intelligent, thoughtful people. But it seems they scan through the applications for the people who are the least. I’ve ordered food probably a dozen times, not once has it ever showed up in the “estimated time”. That’s the least of my complaints. I work at a restaurant that offers door dash as a means of receiving your food, on several occasions, often multiple times a day, the dasher will come in, pick up part of an order and take the incomplete order to a customer, who then calls us and complains. Not only can we do nothing about it because we made the order in full already, but the customer complaint number they give us to pass on to angry people only makes them even more infuriated with endless hold times. A dasher should never leave a restaurant without everything in hand, but they have no incentive to be correct, just an incentive to be as fast as possible. This incentive doesn’t even benefit us as consumers though, as often times one dasher will be carrying 2-3 food orders so saved moments don’t turn into you getting warmer food quicker, but so that they can fit 2 extra deliveries in without u noticing enough to get upset. Maybe I’m just a hater, but I’ve yet to be proven wrong by door dash as a company in any situation.
Sort of a fan...
I use DoorDash all the time... probably 2-3x per week between lunches when I’m trapped on calls working from home or dinner when it hits 7pm and I don’t feel like messing up the kitchen. It’s very convenient to be able to get food from places all over town BUT when they mess up, they mess up badly. I’ve had a few experiences where they mess up the driver and by the time they figure it out I’ve waited 1-2 hours and the restaurant has closed. Hungry people aren’t happy people. It’s hard the fault the driver that finally gets assigned the order because it’s DoorDash that messed up not being able to find a driver yet accepting an order and committing to a timeline for delivery. Furthermore, when I’ve been able to reach a human, the customer service is terrible. They are devoid of any compassion and read off a promoter to say they can credit you back for the order but by that time you are hungry and nothing is open anymore. I’ve had two customer service reps hang up on me mid-sentence. I’d switch providers but they are so dang convenient I find myself swallowing my pride and using the app again. Probably not the ringing endorsement founders would hope for, and the only way to change this impression is to work on training the call center operators. They can make or break the business.
Incorrect Order Functionality Should Be ADDED
I placed an order through DoorDash and it turns out another person placed an order with the same name as me. It has been two hours trying to correct the issue at hand. I decided to just go and pick up our correct order myself. The restaurant that we ordered from has been very accommodating and helpful. However, the DoorDasher themselves need to be more aware of which orders they are picking up and dropping off. Which leads to my next point, DoorDash should have an option through the App after the order has been dropped off “Did you receive your order?” Followed by this question “Did you receive the correct order?” With a YES or NO option. If “No” was selected, there should be an option to put in the Order Number you’ve either received OR what was incorrect with your order along with inputting your order number, from there it should automatically go back to the restaurant with another DoorDasher in route to pick up the correct order and drop off.
DoorDash has been great to use, I use it very often, but unfortunately this isn’t the first time that this has happened and revived the incorrect order or something wrong about the order.
From a customer standpoint I think adding in the Functionality mentioned above would be a great improvement to the App as well as provide better customer service as opposed to creating a hassle trying to get your order.
Would have been 5 stars but......
So I love this app has great prices, promos, and a wider variety of restaurants than other delivery apps BUT TODAY WAS LIKE PULLING TEETH TRYING TO PLACE MY ORDER. I’ve used this app for more than a month had small problems here or there but nothing major until I was blocked from submitting orders for no reason at all I called my bank to make sure the card info was valid and they said the reason for the decline was a mismatch billing address so I called DoorDash to verify all the information and the lady starts to tell me that I haven’t used it in a while so that was why but I explained that I used it yesterday and she says well there is no block on our end it’s your banks fault so more or less I was politely told “Oh well” I played around with the app and discovered that I could use my Apple Pay to submit the order so I did but what makes no sense is that the same card on my Apple Pay is the same card I was attempting to use in the first place but I’ve never had to use Apple Pay in the past so the whole situation was just annoying and I’m starving in the process so I’m just disappointed that there is no rhyme or reason to what happened to me. She said she would escalate the case but there is no est. resolution time......go figure
Wow! Horrible auto-response ...
I have been using Door Dash from day one. I preferred Door Dash to Uber Eats, but there are constant issues of items missing, drivers leaving my order at other doors, drivers taking hours to deliver and if you order drinks forget about it. I continued to patronize Door Dash regardless of the constant mishaps because at least their customer service reps are extremely polite and helpful. However, I recently ordered a rather large order ($70 as usual) band it was frustrating to receive the order again with no drinks. But when I went to report the missing item I received a most disappointing auto response that stated “Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide compensation on this order due to your account history.” So I guess if you continue to use Door Dash services and pay them for it although they continue to forget your items you paid for eventually you will reach a moment when Door Dash will be okay with taking your money and not delivering your food... just taking your money. The rep Vincent quickly apologized and offered a refund for the missing drink, however the auto response is apparently the type of business Door Dash intends to conduct which is to take your money and provide shady service then refuse to right their mistakes unless you take time out of your day to argue with them about it. No thanks. I’ll be taking my business elsewhere.

I love the variety of options on this app, but there are so many frustrating things about the app itself. I’m not going to talk about the over priced tips, or how you have to tip before you even receive your order which can’t change if you’re dasher is great or crappy. There isn’t even a comment section to give feedback on the dashers because I know a few have eaten some of my food while delivering it to me. The “your favorites” section of the app is crap because it has restaurants on there that I had once and hated. Not only is there no option to actually add a your favorite, there’s no way to remove them from the section. Every time I go to “your favorites” that place is always the first in line which is also very irritating. If a restaurant is closed on a day you look for it, it shows up as “no result” even though I can go through my previous orders and find it that way. I will say I am appreciative of how responsive the support team is if the restaurant messes up, or the driver hands off the my food to someone else. They are quick with a refund, but they don’t refund your tip even if the driver doesn’t do what he is being paid to do. I would be a much happier customer if the issues surround the “your favorites” section was fixed and the drivers could be held accountable for their mistakes.
Assignment of Dashers
I’m not sure how this works, but I’ve faced this issue innumerable times. So my user journey is - I check out the food/restaurant on doordash -> order food from the resto -> order is placed -> money deducted (all good till here) -> I see an ETA -> And now a dasher is assigned (which I see) -> So the dasher makes it a point to not pay heed to the ETA and bring food anytime after that. I am a human and I crave food when hungry. And that is why app like Doordash exist because of the craving and the ease to answer my craving. And when that is not satisfied, trouble begins and I write a review. So my problem is 1.) How come dashers change mid-way : is it like they bring food and in mid-way ‘Tony (namesake, the dasher who was assigned)’ met ‘Frank(new dasher)’ and they exchanged my food mid way and now Frank comes. 2.) Many times I receive my food cold. Why? If the taxes are not sufficient increase them but bring my food ‘hot’. Please. 3.) The dashers are always assigned to multiple pick-ups and no wonder food turns up cold - kindly make an algorithm so that a dasher pertains to not more than ‘3’ orders else the customer has to eat stone-cold food. 4.) Tips - I earlier used to give them, but once I started receiving stone cold food I stopped and I am afraid what else can I do. I want convenience and thanks to you I am getting that but not at the cost of delayed and cold food. Apologies but I should have voiced this out earlier.
Great concept, horrible execution
Doordash support is horrible!!! If there is an issue with your food there is no way to get it fixed, so if you have no transportation or any other food available your out of luck. There is no way to provide feedback on restaurants or drivers to hold them accountable. For example, I had an order canceled 30 min after I placed it even though it said it would be arriving within 12-18 minutes, I had gotten home late from work so ordered that way so I could take care of things at the house, eat and go to bed, instead I’m up an hour and a half later due to no notification. I should be able to put a review on that restaurant so that others are aware of their unreliability. Another restaurant never reads special instructions, so first off, I get food I won’t eat and will only get a partial refund, um, no, I should get a full refund for the cost of the food at least. I should also be able to put a review on that restaurant so customers know they have to call the restaurant if they have special instructions and want them followed. Not to mention the driver that drove up in my YARD instead of my driveway! I mean, come on!!! The only thing you can put is driver is unprofessional ... seriously? It’s absolutely ridiculous and completely frustrating, need to be able to leave restaurant reviews and doordash needs to have some accountability for poor performance for the restaurants and drivers.
App Failed & the Worst Customer Support Ever!
I used the app and was able to order food when traveling. The second time when ordering at work it did not process so I tried to submit again and it told me my account was deactivated. I reached out to support to find out what happened as my credit card is in good standing. Support sent me an email saying they would look into it. A week later I followed up to see if there was any resolution which they replied back with a link to their legal terms page and said I had violated their terms. THAT WAS IT. That was their customer service response to their app failing during normal use.
I even checked with my credit card company which told me they had not denied any transactions from DoorDash and my card was still active and valid. I also tried to place an order using a different email address to see if I could still order and it came back as account deactivated most likely since I used the same credit card. So that was my experience with the worst customer service and app fail. Their app failed and their response was THAT I VIOLATED their terms during normal use of placing a lunch order. I find it so funny. They could’ve replied with a different response to discover what error may be happening with their service and chose to place the blame on me. Good luck with anyone choosing to use this company. I wish DoorDash the best and hope they will do better in the future with their service and how they decide to treat their customers.
Worst delivery service ever
Ordered from McDonald’s. Waited an hour and a half total for it. I got paired with a dasher Margret after a little while and when I went back on the app 15 minutes later, she disappeared from up app so I figured she ended up cancelling my order. The tracker will still continue to count down though according to what they told you when you initially ordered. Then, 45 minutes later, I got a notification saying my dasher was still on the way to the restaurant and that my food would be delayed. Lie lie lie- they still had not even found a dasher to pair me with probably. It’s incredibly frustrating because if DoorDash knows they can’t fulfill the order but they will not tell you that- they will just keep playing you. Instead of giving you an option to order from other places before they close, they have you sit there on the edge of your seat hoping. It went past the delayed time they provided and still nothing. Now I’m trying to cancel and “this may take a few seconds” has taken about 15 minutes now but go figure lol I literally expected it. When I went to cancel, it automatically offered me a refund to my card which they obviously did because they messed up. Just ordered from UberEats and my food is picked up and on its way, got the call from the driver already. I regret not just going with UberEats from the beginning. It’s 4AM. Doordash, this is pathetic and you seriously can’t expect to retain a customer base like this. Truly ridiculous.
