DoorDash engineer slams company policy of requiring all employees to deliver food
An American food delivery company requires all of its employees, regardless of their designation, to make at least one food delivery each month. San Francisco-based DoorDash launched a program called WeDash in 2013 – the year it started operations. Thanks to WeDash, everyone in the company, even CEO Tony Xu, is expected to deliver food once a month. The logic behind WeDash, according to the company, is to introduce its employees to different parts of its product and help solve problems. âAs the business grew, the founders wanted everyone to experience different parts of the product so that we could get closer to all of our audiences and understand how the product works,â a DoorDash spokesperson said. at CNN Business.
However, politics does not receive all the desired love from the employees of the company. A DoorDash engineer, reportedly earning an annual salary of $ 400,000, is furious at the program for not being mentioned in the individual’s letter of offer or job description. DoorDash had suspended the WeDash policy after the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, but is now restarting it from January 2022. The employee, in question, is not happy with the resumption of this program and has expressed his anger on the Blind social media platform. âThe compulsory ‘WeDash’ starts from next year. You have to rush once a month. WILL BE FOLLOWED IN PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS !! What is the real f ** k? I didn’t sign up for this, there was nothing in the letter of offer / job description about it, âthe employee said, while mentioning his annual pay.
While the disgruntled employee managed to garner nearly 1,900 comments on the post, the company told Market Watch that the individual’s beliefs are not a “reflection of the employee base as a whole.” DoorDash, however, confirmed that the post on Blind was shared by its employee because the social media platform requires its users to sign up through their company email address.
