Got pizza today and the driver was friendly/chatty. So I asked him a few questions (after giving him a $2.90 tip (20%) ).
They are paid hourly, minimum wage, plus $1 per trip for gas.
Delivery charge added to bill goes to the store, not the driver.
2/3 people tip - usually in range of $2 - $3. On large (party) orders tip is usually about $5 - $6.
1/3 people don't tip and give exact dollar amount & change.
Drivers don't like to deal with coin change at all.
About 50% pay cash, 50% use crecit card.
If driver is robbed, store insurance will cover lost money and if driver injured it's covered by worker's comp.
Gas, wear & tear on car is very high.
By then pizza was getting cold, so I let him go.
