being a pizza delivery driver
my car gets 25-30 mpg. pros and cons?
Pros: Driving around smoking listening to whatever you want. Tips. Free food if the place you work at is tight. Finding spots because you drive random-ass places (at least I did when I worked at a Mom&Pop place that had no delivery zone)
Cons: 'In this economy' no tips. 'In this economy' gas $$. Miles on your car. You might have to work and not make it to SC

I would rather buy candles at the 99c store, Knock on doors in the neighborhood and sell them for 5$. Come up with some "I put my self through university by selling these" pitch. MEGA PROFIT!!! If you work it , you are looking at between 30-50 dollars and hour.
cannot imagine putting miles on my car AND having it smell like food all the time. that job sounds a lot less lucrative these day anyway, i would look for other options.
My girlfriend is GM at a Hungry Howie's pizza place in Canton. The drivers get paid a decent wage plus tips. Some people still tip well even in these harsh economic times.
Althought they did get robbed the other day by some black guy with a gun, avoid the hood at night if you're a driver, you're a target if you have one of those toppers on your car.
one of my friend used to deliver pizza, he said its wild as shit. specially on weekends.
make sure your delivery zones are in rich/nice areas. my friend delivered for papa johns and made baaank.
Unless you dislike stability/being an adult, are a struggling artist, are a student, or under the age of 19 or 20, it's a bogus gig.
I put 70,000 miles on my car in 2 years doing it. I made awesome enough money to live on my own, pay for my car, and buy pretty much whatever I wanted, but I fucking hated every second I was at work. If you have no ambition it's a pretty cool gig I guess, otherwise, find something else.
for real though
makes your car smell strange, this could be a pro or a con depending what your car smells like now

Cons: Inconsistant tips, your base wage will be below minimun wage, cost of gas and milage on your car, delivering in the snow (if it snows much or at all where you live)
One of my favorite jobs I have had so far. Not the best as far as benefits or consistancy is concerned but definitely the most fun, and if the place you work slaps there own dough, doing that is awesome.

being a pizza delivery guy was my favorite job ever: i worked for a small mom and pop pizza place, got free pizza every day and night, smoked weed all day long, listened to whatever music i wanted, got fat tips, and did i mention that i got free pizza every day and night.

I make between 15-20 usually closer to 20 bucks an hour
miles on car/maintenance
gas price sucks
driving in the snow might suck in your area. i live in the hilliest part of my state so this winter could get hectic
My city of 80,000 has 2 domino's
I work in the one that delivers to the ghetto, the downtown bar scene, hip young community, factories/production facilities and the housing neighborhoods that go with them, the pricey local hotels, and one of ritziest private colleges in my state
the other dominos delivers to the rich part of town, the 2 cheaper private colleges, the cookie cutter suburbs part of town and the cheaper hotels.
i'd much rather deliver in my zone
20$ an hour to fuck off is pretty rad
Depends where you work, I'm sure I've mentioned multiple times that I loved my job.
Cons: You'll get calls from Northside, You're not from Richmond so you have no clue how sketch Northside can be, and you'll get robbed.
they say there's certain places we don't deliver to after dark. its 551 e laburnum ave to 64. how many rich white people live there?
