Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
I moved out when I was 17. got a pizza job.

at the time 5.50$ an hour + 10% commission on how much I delivered plus tips, plus I closed the place up at night and didn't throw the pizza away like we were supposed to.

this afforded me a death trap shitty studio for $350 down the street. went to junior college during the days, worked through it, living off dough barely making dough.

the good thing was it was a small chain local punk rock pizza place they hired lots of punks and goths.

I had left my Christian home. I was banging the crew as we were all creatures of the dark. rebellious teenagers.

early 90's.

got me through junior college until I transferred into a university.

worked for me.

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.

yeah i did that or better in 91 when gas was still cheap.

I did it for years and cant wait to retire from my 'real' job to do it again. I made about 40k per year and was only taxed on about 16k. dont have to claim all your tips.

and you get to ride around all day listening to talk radio and pet dogs all day. how awesome is that?

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
Best slave job I've ever had. I live in Canada, made $10/hour (minimum), plus tips. I made between $20 and $30 an hour, average, got to drive a fast car on beautiful twisty roads and listen to music, and got as much free pizza and ice cream as I wanted. Met awesome people, spread the word about important stuff and made great friends and connections. Helped a small business succeed, and made so many stoners smile. ;)

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
Forgot to mention that I got $1 per delivery. Drove around 350km over 2 shifts, made around $300-500 per 11 hours.

Something else to think about; if you smoke almost everyone you deliver for will smoke you up (at least where I live), and you can sell while you're delivering (think of your main client base).

I don't know anyone who's done it, but it doesn't seem like it would be too much of a stretch.

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
if you have a good running car sure why not

but if you are rushing to get to these homes to deliver pizza most likely you could get caught speeding get a ticket that will cost you more..

so dont speed...

now its shit money delivering pizza and they dont pay you for gas either...

and how much is gas in your area?


and...... lets talk tips...

if you deliver to a shitty neighborhood... dont expect good tips

you deliver to a rich neighborhood dont expect good tips...

the rich are usually snobby shit heads..

they dont think about how much you make how fast you delivered it

they just dont care.......

so is it worth it?

hope you still live with your mommy and dont owe a shit load of bills cause it wont pay much


you'll be lucky to bring home 200.00 a week

and thats a guess.. it depends where you live I guess..





*edit*
im reading back some of the comments..
im going to guess this was a LoNG time ago you made good money doing this

the economy isn't like it use to be
people hardly keep cash on them its all done with debit credit cards..



and sorry my post isnt too positive...I do know of someone who did this a while ago and it wasn't positive..

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
I am not sure but I will tell you that it irks me that the delivery charges that Dominoe's (icky pizza) doesn't go to the delivery person.

So if they charge $2.00 for delivery they keep it and you have to tip the delivery guy on top of that...let's say at least a buck (depends)

I think the driver should keep or at least get half of delivery charge....I don't know why they don't.

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
in a related story... my mom ordered pizza when i was a kid once. she felt it was "too late" and made me pay the guy without tipping him.

he said very angrily "tell your mom to tip"

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
I work for the big guy (d o m i n o s). The franchisee owns 130 or so stores in the south.

we get 7.25$ an hour while we're in the store

when we're on the road we get 4.25$ an hour.


paid overtime. holiday pay on christmas eve. hurricane pay when we worked in the store after Isaac. (Time and a half)


we get a sliding scale of around $ 0.30- $0.34 per mile we drive (the mileage as per recommended by the computer's routing system.)


with tips I average 20/hour. I claim about 25% of what i make in tips. = 3000$ tax return


I just completed my first year of employment, and now I have fairly decent health/life insurance and a 401k.



I drive a 2002 SUV that gets an average of 20mpg and is about to die. in the past year i put 35,000 miles on it and replaced 4 tires, a full brake job, and of course oil changes.



about to get a small mazda2 or a honda or a hyndai accent that gets 30-35mpg

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
I shit you not I delivered until Halloween this year in Pittsburgh.
Made minimum, 10% commission, and tips without a split.

In a city's downtown area I made 41k working 50-60 hours a week for a year.

I put over 10k into my car though, and about 40k miles.

I got paid to eat pizza, smoke weed, watch TV, and drive around listening to music. Work for a local chain. Best job ever.

Fuck what you think is a pathetic job. Can't argue with 40k at 21 years old.

I probably put 20 or so in my tank a day. maybe 30 or 40.
I usually ended up taking home 40-90 dollars a night, depending on the night. if its a weekend, I usually made more. (that estimate is subtracting gas)

this. so much.
but my car is old, I can't really afford to ruin it.
PLUS. I wasn't smart, and got pulled over a few times. I'd NEVER gotten pulled over before I started delivery. so I decided to quit :/
besides, as a teenage girl, my parents were worried about me. (delivering pizza, especially in certain towns.)

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1376666


the tip should really be worked into the cost of the pizza. then if people want to tip extra they can but the delivery person won't be working for free if the people are cheapskates.

Re: How much does pizza delivery people make?
I just got off work. Local pizza shop. I deliver. Tonight I had 11 deliveries, worked 6 hours, drove 50 miles, made $90. I usually make between $10 and $20 per hour, depending.

I have delivered off and on for different places for years. I have worked for small shops, pizza hut, and domino's. Working for the major chains I made shit. Working for a locally owned shop I make great money.

There are several variables that will determine how much you will make. First is the area. Like one poster already stated, rich people don't tip and poor people don't tip. But the middle class tip really well. Second is the time of day that you work. If you don't have a lot of deliveries, then you are just making your hourly. One thing about that is if you get paid less than minimum wage and work for tips, but you don't get any tips because you don't have deliveries, then your employer is obligated by law to make up the difference.

I love my job. You should tell your friend to give it a try. They will either love it or hate it.
That which eludes us is not what is unknown, but rather what has been forgotten.

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.
 Quoting: murat 1334974


You can make 24K delivery pizza?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1377822


yes you can make 24,000....

and then subtract your investment.

customers don't realize they are responsible for compensating the driver for use of their vehicle.

80% of the mileage on my car is used delivering pizza.

therefore, 80% of the cost of my vehicle
and 80% of all repairs and maintenance need to come back to me in tips. that's thousands of dollars a year.
when i don't get tipped, even when compensated for gas by the company, i am paying money out of my own pocket for lazy assholes to get food.

i can't really recommend it. it's ok. but i do not make near the amount of money that i SHOULD be making.

especially comparatively to similar jobs such as UPS drivers and USPS drivers.... ~$15-$21hr and i make ~$10-$14/hr with my subtracted investments.

but then that's not including risk to my vehicle's safety and my safety... i've hit deer while working... i've had accidents while delivering in blizzard's and all-around shitty road conditions/ severe storms )

anyways, i recommend being a waitress/waiter or a bartender over being a delivery driver.

they make more money and their job doesn't cost them money or put their lives in danger.

fuck, i hate bartenders.

$20+ an hour for filling fucking glasses with fucking liquid and walking a few feet.

and they ignore me for giving them a FAIR tip of $0.25 per glass. fair? hell, it's fucking GENEROUS. dicks
