Some customers never tip at all, and that can be very discouraging for any delivery driver.
I have been a delivery driver for the past ten years.
I started working for a pizza shop.I worked for the pizza shop for two years and then I started delivering for a dry cleaner. The dry cleaning gig paid better and the tips were higher, so I stayed there for a while. Recently, I decided to switch jobs again when a position was available to drive for the medical marijuana dispensary. My best friend was working as a budtender at the medical marijuana dispensary. She told me about the delivery driver job, which had a higher hourly wage and benefits. I was hesitant to leave the job at the dry cleaners, because of my five years of employment. I thought about the decision for three days, before I called the manager. She immediately brought me into the store for an interview. We talked for thirty or forty minutes and I felt really good about the job. The manager called me an hour later with great news. She wanted me to start the new job in two weeks. I had to tell the manager at the dry cleaner that I found another job. I didn’t expect him to beg me to stay, but he even offered to raise my hourly wage. Unfortunately, he could not match the benefits the medical marijuana dispensary offered, so we had to part ways. I’m enjoying working for the cannabis dispensary and I’m also learning a lot about medical marijuana and all of it’s wonderful uses.
