Being able to cut the coupons off for the customer that are usually stuck to the box.

(Not all at once, due to hygiene issues.) 1) Shave between deliveries. 2) Use as a car window escape tool if I accidentally drive off a pier. 3) If clean, offer to remove unwanted toppings with the scissors rather than going back for a second pizza. 4) DO NOT RUN. Biking with scissors may be okay. 5) Pizza box origami. 6) Self-defense from dogs at the gate or bad people. 7) Fun monocle. 8) Cut curbside flowers en route, offer them to attractive people along with pizza, hope for bigger tip. 9) Freeing my hair from the door Jake Ryan slammed when he was calling Samantha. 10) Tie each half to bottom of shoes on icy day—skating deliveries. 11) Use crushed eyeliner and tip of scissors like a quill if someone doesn't have a pen to sign the credit card slip. 12) Mirror: spruce up, see who's behind you, replacement for rearview, SOS signaling, calming angry birds. 13) Shoelace + scissors = jewelry. 14) Straight edge for graffiti art. 15) Compass to draw perfect circles, which could also be used in aforesaid art. More useful, though, on city map to specify pizza delivery area.

As it happens, I've been delivering pizza to support my family for the past year while looking for a position in which I can use my post-graduate degree. If I had a pair of scissors it would vastly simplify and expedite the pre-frontal lobotomy which your stupid question mandates I perform on you. I was going to use my Cross pen. Thanks for the use of your scissors!

I'd use the scissors to stab any customer who tried to beat me with a rock instead of giving me paper (cash). Then I'd stab whoever comes up with the stupid questions, or whoever in Human Resources allowed some LSD-infuenced college "professor" to convince them that these questions have ANY place in ANY job interview - unless it's an interview for "improv comedian" positions

That is a trick question, because the real question is to see if you can separate pizza delivery from your need for or use of scissors. If you deliver pizzas and do arts and crafts during your time off. If you cannot disassociate pizza delivery from owning and using a pair of scissors, you are not going to produce any real answer.

I would ask customers, what is the best way to benefit from a scisors in a pizza delivery job.

Aytac Zeren on

What? Nobody got this? The answer is obvious... With a scissors a pizza deliveryman could invoke a cut functionality, so he can cut the variable time in half. This way the delivery man would be able to increase it's throughput and time efficiency for each client, which would result in quality of service. If pizza deliveryman were a game, the scissor item could be used to achieve the behavior above. But again, this type of interview questions serve only to test your creativity, behavior handling odd problems and your capacity to come up with a congruent solution that solves the problem, when all the conditions you defined are guaranteed.

If I were a pizza deliveryman, I'd live on a pretty low wage, and, living a pretty simple life, I'd only own one pair of scissors. Another pair of scissors would benefit me because it could be my back-up pair. It would save me some of the trouble of looking for scissors at times, or if something were to happen to my first pair, I wouldn't have to spend $5 on a new pair.

I think the correct answer would be in the same ways as a person who has any other job. The question didn't ask for how you would benefit from scissors for your job.

i do not think it is a trick question. Anyway if I was a pizza deliveryman I would use it both to open doors of apartment blocks (most are locked and sometimes intercom doesn't work + a pair of scosors will open it in 3 sec without damage) and i might use it as a measuring tool to measure the distance to the customer on a map making as sure as possible that I won't be running late :)

I would use the scissor to cut tickets, paste on pizza box and write customer name on it, so they don't get mixed up !!

I don't find there would be any beneficial value to the scissors, as such would return them, as it would be a waste of company resources. I would in turn request a benefits program to help with health costs.
