How Do I Check My Application Status with Doordash?

DoorDash has a complex application process. If you've recently applied to DoorDash, follow these steps to check the status of your application and background check.

DoorDash is an on-demand food delivery service. The company was originally founded in 2013 by a group of Stanford students. Today, the company operates in 56 markets across 600 cities in North America. DoorDash hires drivers to deliver food to its customers. Many people choose to be a driver with DoorDash as a secondary form of employment. Drivers are not required to keep a specific schedule, so there is the flexibility to pick up work whenever desired.

If you have recently applied with DoorDash, there is often a delay before you get a response. The company policy is to perform a background check on all DoorDash drivers. Typically, this background check takes between 5-7 business days. DoorDash uses a third-party vendor, Chekr, for background checks.
