    All the major pizza chains have the same policy and it ain't nothing new. We should boycott Pizza Hut because their pizza sucks.

    I don't understand why anyone would eat Pizza Hut. Even here in Iowa we have good, local, independently owned pizza joints.

    Their Pizza sucks. No reason to go there.

    On the hand their corporate policy, based on the extremely litigious society that we live in, is spot on. Corporate policy is designed to protect the company first. Because without the company there is no policy to worry about. Any policy that allows,approves or condones use of a weapon in any fashion while on the job opens the company and their insurance provider up to serious legal ramifications. Period. Company comes first. It has to.

    To the delivery driver. How bad can it really be. He got demoted from a crappy job. A job which runs an inherent risk of just those kinds of things happening. He was aware of corporate policy when he started and chose to proceed.

    Screw company policy. I'd get fired before I'd get killed.

    why would I boycott them for enforcing a policy the man agreed to when he took the job?

    How do you get demoted from delivery? I imagine that is the worst job they have.

    He didn't really get demoted, he got reassigned to cook and had his hours cut. With tips, you clear several dollars more an hour than the cooking staff that makes minimum wage or close to it.

    I delivered pizzas in college for Domino's in a small town. I averaged around ten dollars an hour, the cooks made five and change.

    Well, pap john's is the walmart of cardboard pizza, which is especially true with their customer service efforts over mistakes to orders.

    The two walmart pizza papa john's places nearest me have this: WE NEVER make a mistake kind of attitude. I use either pizza hut, dominos, or moon river.

    This is how much the papa john's nearest me suck.


    ETA: When I delivered pizza, I was armed, but heck, I'm usually armed so no biggie.

    I'm already boycotting Pizza Hut because their crappy pizza gives me the ****s, I'll add this to list of reasons why.

    As an aside, I knew someone who used to drive for them and carried a .38: to them it seemed like being alive and looking for work was a better option than being a team player and dead.

    I keep a p64 in the car while delivering for pizza hut. Company policy says i cant but maine state law says employers cant prohibit guns in private vehicles. Thank you governor LePage.

    Were supposed to give up money peacefully if robbed, but i dont think i'd be fired for fighting back if the attacker started striking. Besides, im a pretty vital employee and their short staffed :)

    will do


    ....but it won't be hard as I've not eaten or ordered from them since the late 80s while in the Army. Not due to their policys as such but more about the crappy food.

    A local pizza place here has made it public knowledge that it's delivery drivers are allowed to carry if they have a license to do so. All of them do, and only one driver has been robbed in the last 15 years. Their pizza is excellant as well.
