>>25673838 You can make a lot, dude. I'm currently in a smaller city. Tips aren't great, but my GM gives me 40+ hours, so I'm makin' enough. You work at a franchise or corporate store? I used to work at a small, skeezy chain, and once or twice, we didn't get out until five fucking in the morning.
Damn, I'm kind of envious honestly. I generally get around 45-50 hours during breaks, but in the summer the GM makes sure we get under 40 hours to avoid having to pay us overtime... it's a franchise though so this one guy owns all of the Domino's in the area
And I thought my place closed late. Do you guys have to do all of the tedious closing chores as well? I generally just like to wash dishes, but sometimes the GM makes me flush the makeline and clean all of that shit
it's bad when they order some extra stuff like crushed red peppers, ranch , or any dipping sauce because that stuff doesn't go into the oven bag and is easily forgotten. It's awkward when they tip, but you forgot their condiments in the car.
>>25673966 I'm back at Domino's now, thank fuck. The other chain I worked at closed at 1 on the weekdays, and 3 on the weekends. We'd just get a lot of business because everyone else was closed. My GM was cool and mostly had us do dishes and clean the floors. We were only getting a flat rate of $4.50 per hour, so he felt guilty as shit making us do more.
Now, though, I just work open until like 9 or so. Mostly just do sauce, cut bread and fold boxes. And whatever other random shit there is.
I just tell them we're out of stock. The manager backs us up if they call back.
I'll forget the sodas way too often. It changes places on the receipt as well, so if it's not on the bottom, it could be listed at the top, or sometimes they'll order the smaller bottles of soda that we never sell. Fucking sodas!
>>25674041 Oh man, the best is when they get the address wrong and you call and confirm it. And they say "ya man it 187 Rob U Ave," so you ask them if it's the assisted living home nearby since there's no address that you see, and they say yeah. So you drive there and they call asking "wher u goin u was her in da parkin lot" "Sir, are you sure it's 187 Rob U Ave?" "ya u wus here" "Are you sure it's not 5009 Rob U Ave?" "ya itz 187 u wuz heer i seent ya" "Alright sir, I'll be right back." So you go back to 5009 and the fucking guy is out there and hands you a $20 for $15.74 and asks for "juss fo dolla back" Fucking Christ. We've come to a consensus that we don't deliver to black people anymore. "Qwon" ruined it for all of them.
>>25674073 >>25674163 I dunno if you fags work at domino's, or know what the parm bites are, but holy shit. No one sees it when they order dipping sauces on the parm bite bag. That fucks me over the most. I just go back and get it because, you know, fuck it.
>>25674214 With 40+ hours a week, I'm usually making around $2000 a month after taxes. That doesn't include gas or maintenance, though. Including gas, hourly and taxes, I've been making a little under $12 an hour the past few months.
Not bad at all desu. The opening chores are a lot easier from my experience, but I like the night manager a lot better so him and I generally like closing together. I usually don't do shit in-store during the night, but the daytime managers at my place are horrendous to work with. We have to constantly be doing something or they'll threaten to write us up
But I get $8 per hour (a bit above minimum wage in my state) in-store and about $4.50 on the road plus 20 cents per mile. We used to get a flat rate of $1.50 in mileage per run, but sometimes we would actually lose money for the deliveries close to the edge of our delivery radius.
Yeah, there's plenty of those. I had one guy who would always call from just outside our delivery area. He found some way to change the address so that our system would accept it, so it would just bring us to this random address. Then we had to call him and he would give us the actual address basically making us drive to two different locations. Of course he didn't tip either. Then his bitch gf calls to complain "why they always have trouble finding our place"... because you are calling the wrong store with an incorrect address, you stupid bitch.
Also, I fucking hate calling people numbers with my phone. But they always find a way. If I get to the place and they aren't there, I'll give them one call if no answer, I'm gone.
They always try to pull some bullshit like "oh, we had to go to the bank."
>>25674338 Not bad. I work with one shit whale of a day manager, and one that's my all around nigga. I don't mind working all day, makes shit go faster. I used to close way back when I first started delivering, but shit man, I got so sick of those hours. Now I work four shifts a week between eight and thirteen hours each, then get three days off to be a huge piece of shit. Fuck yeah. We've got split pay here, too, but min wage is $7.25. Get around $0.26 a mile, but I think it varies depending on gas prices.
Oh, man. My favorites were the ones that would write checks. We had a few bounce at my place, so the GM eventually made it a rule that we wouldn't accept checks from new customers. I almost had a pizza robbed from me once when this meth head tried to write a faulty check to me on delivery. He also made me call the GM once and every prepaid card he had got declined, so I ended up having to bring them all back
>>25674401 I dunno about your franchise (I'm assuming you're the other domibro in the college town), but at corporate, if you feel there's any danger that it could be a robbery (such as the customer giving you the wrong address and then changing it when you get there), you're not supposed to deliver it.
I work at pizza hut and am so glad we don't have all those stupid fucking snacks dominos carries. The worst is the dinner boxes though, especially when some asshole orders like 4 of them and you have to carry all that shit in one delivery.
Damn, that's a real good gig dude. They GM is making me work around 7-9 hours for 6 days a week currently... we're pretty shorthanded because he's been abusing his power and firing people left and right for frivolous bs
And yeah, the night shifts will get to you after a while. Switching to daytime hours (once college started back up for me) really fucked with my circadian rhythm
And I'd say $5. If I know a person always tips pretty close to that amount I always make sure to get it there early. I'll throw in free cheese and peppers as well and occasionally some dipping sauces if I can sneak some
>>25674495 I dunno about other dudes, but the amount you tip won't change that too much at busier places. Especially corporate ones. We're pushed to get everything out as fast as possible, regardless of how shitty the customer is. If we fuck up, though, and you're a good tipper, my manager will usually let you keep the fucked up pizza and throw in something extra along with the remade food. If you're a serial stiffer, you'll just get a pizza to replace the other. And if you're ghetto as shit, we'll ask for the other one back. But like $5 for me is what I'd consider good. $3's average. Anything under is just like "Really? You're white and you're doing this?"
i used to. i just got a gig delivering newspapers. i'm supposed to go in tonight for the first time. kind of nervous. should be bretty easy right? seems pretty comfy once i get my route down it will just be me at 2am and the radio.
Haha fuck bro. I've run into shady shit like that as well. Just the other night, $76 cash order to some trailer park, this lady handed me a fake hundred dollar bill (we aren't even supposed to accept hundreds) and the face was literally drawn right onto the corner of the bill...I was like, "ma'am sorry to disappoint you but this obviously fake and I cannot accept this as currency" I even told her we offer discounts and coupons that could help bring the bill down.
She told me to hold the order while she goes to break the bill.... of course she never called back.
Kinda sad because as I was leaving her daughter became upset asking "where's the pizza?"
Guys, can you get a delivery job if you don't actually own the car you're going to use? I'm poor as fuck and have to use my dad's old car. I'm insured and have a perfect driving record, but I'm just not the registered owner.
Seriously just tip. I'll literally hook people up at the end of my shift if they tip me well. They don't realize how much cancelled shit we get and I usually have a 2 liter in my trunk that I'm not going to take home with me.
Sometimes the job makes you lose so much faith in humanity, but other times, people are awesome and remind you why you put up with the shit.
I work at one of those really small stores. Not the ones that have an eat-in restaurant.
It's pretty cramped sometimes, especially when there's a big event and we have 15 drivers just going in and out. Lot of the stuff seems old as fuck too. Like those old black Dell desktops. It's touchscreen, but that shit doesn't work sometimes, locks up and have to reboot. One computer they don't even use anymore. The place can get pretty dirty too.
One night one of the ovens was leaking exhaust, that same night the dishwasher stopped working so you had to wash everything with just the hose (I closed that night too, yeah thanks) AND all the computers went down for almost an hour. We were busy too, and the only assistant manager there was new so nobody had any clue what to do.
Sometimes with the plastic lids, we don't even wash, it gets put back on the rack to be used again. But yeah, that shit accumulates quick. I hate closing. I only close one day, but I like my hours and working late, it's just the weekend that I do it. I don't want to close anymore though. My coworkers never help with dishes it's basically just the accepted culture that whoever is closing does all the dishes even if they are out making deliveries.
Of course the only time anyone does dishes is if they have to use it for their cooking prep.
>>25676851 Alright. >Super awkward driver named Randy is on a delivery at night >Slowly driving through a neighborhood, a little black kid rides out in front of him on a bike >He hits the kid and knocks him over >He gets out of the car to see if the kid's okay, he's fine >Doesn't know what to do >Just hugs the kid and leaves
You drive for Dominos, right? Do you guys get to dispatch yourselves or do you wait for the manager to dispatch you?
At peehut, we can do pretty much everything (assigning orders, entering credit card receipts, cashing out orders etc) on the computer as long as the manager trusts you. we have the manager password meaning we can make our own drops. Only thing is they cash us out at the end of our shift.
I think it's an okay gig once you get out of the store. Every now and then there'll be an influx of annoying teenagers who work as CSR's and it feels like high school all over again. But there's also some old whackos who end up as drivers and are a pain to work with because they always have to talk down to you even though it's a fucking fast food job.
>Randy becomes a manager >We're cool, despite him starting to take shit super seriously and not joke around >One day say I'm black because I listen to old school gangster rap and drive a '71 Impala. >"You're not black, Anon." >I took that as a challenge and did everything I could every day to convince him I was. >He gets so mad. >Can't help but fuck with him every single day we work together >He switches to another store (different reasons [maybe]) >Tell all the new drivers he's transgender and to use the female pronoun if he stops by. >My store knew him as Randy the Tranny >Three years later, my friend's girlfriend gets a job with him at his store >His store now knows him as Randy the Tranny.
>>25677161 Yeah man. We did it the same way at the Pizza Hut I was at. The system at D-no's is different, though. You assign your own order and leave. When you get back, you just sign back in. Instead of giving the store the money right away, you put whatever money or credit card slip you got in your locker. At the end of the night, the manager cashes you out. It saves a lot of time and keeps you from having to hide your tips in your car.
I know the kinda drivers you're talking about, man. Christ. I've worked with some stupid ass motherfuckers, haha.
>>25677291 I still occasionally text Randy and invite him to Black Thanksgiving or Christmas with my Black Family. If he ever agreed, I was gonna give him the address right beside mine. A super black family lives there (they've got like seven kids, none of them with each other).
>Work with this really stupid insider named Tyler >We make a pizza and I offer him a high five >Move my hand and he misses >He gently slaps me >I pause for a second, then slap the shit outta him >Yell "NO, TYLER. BAD. NO TOUCHING."
>Make the mistake of becoming a manager >Run opening shifts. >Make like $5 less per hour for doing a shitload more work. >Start fucking with people more, saying weird shit and starting unbelievable rumors to get by (like the Randy the Tranny one) >Super quiet tall awkward kid would slowly walk out the door >Didn't listen when I told him to hustle >Started chasing him out of the store saying "HERE COMES THE TICKLE MONSTER" >He started hustling
I did the same with a black kid. He just let me tickle him, looked me in the eyes and moaned. I didn't chase him anymore.
>>25677599 >Open with this weird, short, balding ex-navy guy in his late 40s >Walk back on him feeling up the dough balls >Looks at me with his big, bug eyes >"Man, these feel just like FAKE TITS!" >"Oh." >"Sorry, I'm feeling a little FRISKY today!" >"...Alright."
It's usually the same, the bullshit coming from them of help a brother (free stuff basically) yet they couldn't give me a dollar. Trying to short me in cash, saying they order a drink when they didn't. The usual only worse, only once where I ever came close to actually fighting one of them in the until my manager managed to grab me in time and screamed out them to get the fuck out before he calls the police. Yeah they were being that rude
I remember one Christmas I was so depressed, because work got in the way of my college semester again. I basically said this semester I would change and told my job stop interfering with school. They didn't and so I failed that semester and was forced on a break because they denied my aid the following semester, mind you before some people say why didn't you quit. I mean this job really does pay the bills and I've been doing it since the beginning of college, plus having money in my pocket everyday is nice. Anyway I was just sad that entire Christmas break and on Christmas eve, I remember delivering to this old couple and they instantly knew I was sad the moment they opened the door. The man told me there's no reason you should be sad on this holiday, as things could always get worse in life. I told him what happened and he said so you're just gonna graduate a little late so what learn from it. He gave me a $30 tip and said just go buy something with this later to make you feel a little happy. A random person cared about me that day.
>>25678321 Damn man that's pretty heartwarming and honestly it's what's happening to me right now. First day of class was today and I couldn't go since I don't have any money. (Like you said, the aid really does help, I use it for bus passes and the books) So right now I'm in the middle of talking with my counselor and seeing what I can do. I might get hired sometime soon and if that pans out I can attend in the summer and finish up my last class in the Fall before I can official transfer.
That's good on you again, keep that warm feeling in your heart and remember what that kind old man said. What are you going for?
>>25678448 Comp sci. Also I can't lie, I got a sailor's mouth when I'm with friends or at home. When I got the uniform on it takes a lot from a customer to make me say the things a worker shouldn't say to a customer. Just a few times where I ever cussed at a customer in the store, it was even great when there were other customers in the store who took my side when I cussed at them. Only once where I did on the phone while I was a run because the lady gave us a street that was in a different city. Yet that street was also in our delivery area, went to door, people in that house said they didn't order a pizza. After talking to her for the 4th time, she told said the full address including the city and finished with, "Hurry up and get your dumbass over here now." Next thing you know I went off, and never in my life have I floored my car so fast while I was working, but I was eager to drive 20 miles to this persons house and throw this pizza at the door until my manager called me and said come back, she is being blacklisted from any Dominos because she cussed him out too.
I've never officially touched someones food, but I give some customers 3 chances. After that if you're a douchebag I can almost guarantee your food isn't going to be fresh when I get there. I don't care how much you spent.
>>25678614 I work at a coffee shop and I fuck with douchebag's food in plain sight. If it's a really nice qt grill tho, I'll be nice and give them extra. Even good looking nice guys get pref treatment. Any Chad or bitch or anyone who gives me even an ounce of attitude will get a cup of coffee grinds and semen
>>25678517 Different places do it differently. Some give you $0.20-$0.30 per mile, some give you $1.00 per delivery. Part of that delivery fee goes to insurance, though. Not for the driver, but for the company.
>crossdressing >decide to order a pizza >checking out and get scared >put delivery instructions >I PREFER NOT TO BE SEE (character limit) >say fuck it and tuck my dress into a pair of pajama bottoms >pizza arrives >half hide my face behind the door jamb >complete the transaction with left hand >he nearly drops everything as I try to tip
Even if you tip well, you will have to be one of those people that order from our place on a monthly basis for you to get benefits. Otherwise we forget or there's a new batch of workers by the time you make your next order.
