A pizza delivery driver delivers pizzas directly to people's homes or businesses, acting as lifesavers for the hungry (and the lazy). Pizza delivery drivers need to be excellent drivers in order to deliver food safely and quickly to customers-nobody wants their toppings to fall out during a particularly sharp turn. Pizza delivery drivers also need to have excellent customer service skills as they interact with customers they deliver to and often take orders over the phone. However, a pizza delivery driver doesn't always spend all of their time in the car. Sometimes, they have to help out in the restaurant by folding boxes or processing orders.
The most important qualification for a pizza delivery driver is a valid driver's license. Some pizza parlors require their drivers to have their car as well. Although some experience driving may be important, most pizza delivery drivers succeed with only a high school diploma and very little professional experience.
Pizza delivery drivers earn an average annual salary of $20,519. However, they can earn more than that through tips.
