Pizza Delivery Drivers must be safe and responsible individuals who are capable of representing their company at all times. This includes time spent in transit from the customer's address to the restaurant. Drivers must be capable of tracking travel expenses (i.e., mileage or gas consumption). Most deliveries will take place in the evening (dinner, rush hour, late-night snacking, etc.). Drivers must be comfortable with driving at night in all weather conditions, especially snowy, windy, rainy and foggy evenings.
As Pizza Delivery Drivers provide door-to-door service for the customers, they must present a perfect representation of company policies. They must be well-groomed and tidy at all times.
