I just ordered a pizza online. There is a delivery charge of $1.99. Am I supposed to tip also? No prob if so. I just wasn't sure if that was considered gratuity or just to pay the place back for reimbursing gas . . .

    Well, it is the pizza place that sucks. My friend works for Dominoes in our state, and I guess they make the drivers pay for their own gas and they charge the customer a delivery charge... so a lot of people think the driver is getting something from that... My GF told me that when gas was more expensive they raised the driver wage (comparable to server wage) but now that gas is going down, she's getting a pay decrease. Drivers need tips, just like waitresses do. Would you really be so rude as to not tip a waitress because you thought the burger was priced too high? No, she is innocent in all the madness!

    I do not like that they charge a delivery charge to bring you pizza. I think that it should not be a delivery charge and it be up to the customer as to give a tip.

    Both of my kids have worked for Dominos. It's pretty simple. They go out in the worst weather. To deliever your pizza. So you can stay home and be comfortable. You don't want to pay the delivery charge and tip then pick it up yourself. These kids really do work hard they need the tips to put gas in their cars. It's no different then if you went out to eat and you stiffed the waitress. By the way I'm one of those that at times over tip (when I can offord it) to help them offset the cheap ones. Guess what I get awesome service. They remember and will go out their way to make me happy. TIPS To Insure Prompt Service.

    At the pizza place I work for we charge 2.50 for delivery and right now the driver only gets .81 of that (it changes depending on gas prices how much the driver gets.) The company tells us that the rest of the money goes to help off set the cost of having delivery service (ie. the increasing cost of insurance to cover the drivers, buy hot pouches, car toppers, ect...) but the drivers have to carry their own insurance and we haven't bought new toppers or bags in over a year. Therefore besides the gas stippen given to the driver the rest is just pure profit for the company. Most people don't know this so they just assume it all goes to the driver and don't tip which really screws the driver since most only make minimum wage or less at some pizza places. If you want to know how much the driver gets of the delivery charge where you order pizza, next time just ask. They will tell you, especially if a driver happens to take your order, they love to let the customer know that they don't get all of that money.
