Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
I've wondered whether the drivers are given any gas allowance? Is this true, because if not, you're making less than minimum wage. There's no guarantee that you are getting tipped, let alone a descent tip. But like the other person said, better than no job at all.

I know! If you work 60 hours a week you can scrape out enough money to feed and house a family of 3. This includes cable TV and some party stuff. So at the most we are talking about 24K.

There is no gas allowance. You pay for your gas and not everyone tips, especially black people. They even demand change--to the cent. This is from personal experience. Do not even consider it.

Its decent money + free food.

Combine School bus driver in the AM, and delivery at night. Youll turn the 24k into 48k

People don't care if their friends take jobs as pizza delivery drivers. You're asking because you are thinking about it, but think it's beneath you. You are here to have someone tell you to go ahead and do it, along with assurances that your dignity will be intact.

I'll tell you what would cause you to lose dignity: Accepting government handouts. Take the job, make it happen, and move on.

They might give you $10 for gas and to make change for customers but thats it. You have to spend some money to make it.

Youll still profit if you have a fuel efficient vehicle. Only idiots deliver in their big ass trucks or lincoln towncars.

Another advantage is that it's as close to being your own boss as possible while still employed for someone else. You can run as many or few pizzas as you want, though more pizza = more tips. I averaged around $13.50 an hour net.

Uh, car maintenance, people!

If you can fix it yourself and keep it running and it is cheap then, yes, do it.
The driver job is coveted as the tips are split by drivers, and the inside guys get no tips so make less.
Then again, there are some areas you do not want to go to.

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
I make $10 an hour. been working part time there several years. $1.25 per delivery plus tips. Tips avg. $3.00 per delivery. It's actually a decent paying job IF you work at the right resteraunt, and in a good area (not too many long deliveries and generous customers), also, and most importantly you have a vehicle that is reliable and inexpensive to maintain. Good choice for car is a Toyota echo, yarris. Honda fit, civic. Get a Gps, they are great even if you know the area. The Gps will take help you find an address in the dark when you cannot see address numbers or street signs.

It's a fun job at times, other times it's stressful. There are a lot of arrogant people out there that have more respect for drug dealers making good money than a lowly pizza guy, lol. The people that I work with have generally been humble friendly and fun to work with. GL.

Totally agree, it really is like having your own business. Helps if you have a good employer/supervisor as well.

Also, it's a great place to work if you want time off to travel or do/work with other stuff going on. Great if you want to be semi=retired as well.

You supply the car, the Pizza house supplies the gasoline.

Add to that all the free pizza you can eat.

IF you have a good route with good people who believe in shoveling over a few dollars each time you deliver, then yes, its good pay.

However, if you are just starting and there is more than one route you can be certain you will be given the crap route/customers.

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
Several things to factor in...your SUPPOSEd to get minimum wage. Some places will give you SERVEr minimum wage which is like 3$ an hour. Some places charge "delivery fee", which is usually either given wholly or split with the driver. Now factor in: gas, brakes, tires, oil changes...you will be doing them a lot. Most people tip their delivery driver LESS then you would a waiter or waitress, which is stupid. Personally I til a minimum of 5$ and they are about a mile away. I figure between he 5$ tip and 2-3$ dollar delivery charge that's fair for 15 minutes driving.

Also keep in mind most places make their driver do "side work" like folding boxes, prepping food, ect..now with that in mind on a slow night you may only get a sw deliveries with crappy (or no tips), and you were a pizza places bitch for next to nothing.
