    Pros

    As a delivery driver the tips were good. Flexible with hours so they will work around your school schedule

    Cons

    Working friday/saturday night is pretty much mandatory. Good news is the rush shift is only from 4-9. Also they put in a new rule that lets them pay delivery drivers less than minimum wage while they are clocked out on a run.

    Advice to Management

    Stop screwing over your drivers with below minimum wage pay. You guys charge your customers a delivery charge (2.20 in 2010) and at least half of that went in your pockets, while the customer tips less than they would because they believe all of it goes to the driver.
