What really stinks that as a delivery driver for pizza hut is I drive my own car and give me $0.77 cents for every $1.25 (plus tax i belive) they charge the coustomer for delivery!!! I work very hard as a driver I pay for my own gas but gas these day is over $3.09 a gallon for the cheap stuff and going up daily!!
I take care of my own car breaks tires car troubles!! They say they will reviwe the situation every so often but they haven increassed it from $0.77 cents in a while yet they still charge the coustomer $1.25 for delivery!! The reviwe has passed several thime this year and they still dont seem to raise the amount per delivery the driver recieve's.
I do get a houly wage but its not enough to pay the bills let alone repair a car every time it breaks down!! There are tips but because of the delivery Charge some people dont think about tipping!! They think the driver gets the $1.25 but when i have to say no i only get $0.77 cents they say thats not right!! I agree but I have to follow there rules when i guy from a local pizza shop charges a $1.50 per delivery they give the delivery driver the whole $1.50 because they know what its like with gas and knowing the coustomer tips less because of the charge but they know they have to componsate there driver or they loose coustomer's.
I have told coustomers that the reason for the charge is to keep food cost down!! That they may realize that if there wasnt a delivery charge that there expensive pizza would cost them more then what it does already increasing food cost!! There are some slow stores out there and the fact you work hard you may only take less then two(10 or less) hand full of deliveries on any given night because its slow on deliveries and because of the delivery charge the coustomer would rather pick up ther pizza!! How are you supossed to make a living????
I say give the IF YOU are going to charge a coustomer $1.25 per delivery You should Give the Driver the same $1.25 for there hard work and the ware and tare on there car/van/truck/suv !! One gas prices are still rising and that we will reviwe it is a excueses!! We dont think your worth us being in the delivery bussiness or that the driver dont matter to them!!
They would think more about it if they had lost there job and had to pay for there BMW Landrover or any other car they drive let a lone pay for a house health insurance(cobra ) now that they lost there job they have to take what ever they can to pay the bills!!
I think us as drivers should boycott for one day and see how much money they may lose but wait they will try and make there manager's deviler so that they try not to loose coustomer's!! oh Wait they might do coustomer special day to win them back the coustomer's. them they may realize they need to take better care of ther own pizza delivery driver!! I mean gas prices anrent going down yet they go down when th summers over i hope then i can afford gas and repairs again!!
This is for the drivers who say something and the ones that quietly mudder things because coustomers arent tipping cause of the delivery Charge and that there affriad to say any thing!! Thats because they need there job to pay there bills!! IT's time to talk about it cause i am feed up and i know some of the other driver's are feed up to but are not sure what to do or say!!
