    Pros

    DDI is a fantastic company! We have actual employees who work here in the Irvine office and then there are self employed drivers who hire DDI to handle their Accounting and Insurance needs. Some of the reviews on here say they are for DDI but are actually should be directed to the Restaurant Marketing Service the drivers partner with.

    Cons

    None that I can think of!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    If you don't like life work here. The hours are terrible and pay is even worse.

    Cons

    No time for yourself. They work you day and night with no regard for your wallet. The company has you drive everywhere, then they get paid more for the transaction than you. The worker only gets a small portion of the fee. This significant lowers your tip. The company charges the customer a transaction fee, delivery fee, and then expects them to want to tip.. Next thing is that you can work all year, and still not make enough to make profit after the damage to your vehicle is paid for. Repairs don't equal the pay for a years worth of work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. Just because you get paid salary, doesn't mean you should treat us bad. We only get tips...

    Pros

    The main benefit is that you can choose the shifts and days you work.

    Cons

    I made 3 deliveries one week with the tips amounting to $59.42, and delivery fees $39.97 and $0.75 cents for a discount for marketing. However, the deductions include: -$5.99 for accidental insurance, -$6.00 to lease equipment(each shift you pay $3), and -$32.47(This amount changes weekly and increases as you get more orders) for marketing for restaurants on the run. So after 3 deliveries I made $55.65. I also had to buy my own delivery cart and ice chest to store drinks. Consider gas and mileage being used on your car too. You also pay for an MVR report which is the DMV report every six months($14.99) and a background check ($25) in the first month. What I've gained working here so far has been learning to interact with restaurants and businesses.

    Pros

    None that I can think off

    Cons

    DDI claims employees to be "contractors" as a means to circumvent minimum wage laws. The pay by commission can come out to be way less than minimum wage. Drivers are also responsible for providing their own gas/insurance/equipment and must pay to become a licensed contractors. Worked for a company that partnered with DDI, before partnering with DDI we were paid minimum wage, after partnering, our wage dropped to around 4$ an hour. Whether or not this is legal is subject to debate and interpretation, but there is no doubt that this is an unethical practice.

    Advice to Management

    Do not exploit your workers to gain a competitive advantage.

    Pros

    The way they schedule is planned so badly that you will be able to get a lot of overtime especially at the end of the month.

    Cons

    You'll be screamed at and talked down to. You'll be blamed for mistakes and won't be trained. You'll work for someone with no experience because they are friends with the right people. You will never be promoted or advance from the position they hired for. No raises at all.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that not everyone you hire has to be a 20 year old girl that agrees with everything you say. Say thanks every now and then even to the people you don't have happy hour with.
