Peapod grocery delivery - to tip or not to tip
I believe Peapod says that tips "are appreciated but not required".
I live on the third floor with no elevator, so the driver has to go up two flights of stairs and they always carry ALL the groceries at once. That's quite a feat, and so I almost always tip (unless they were late or in a ridiculously foul mood).
Does anyone know how much such drivers are paid? Do they rely on tips like pizza or take-out delivery people, or do they get an hourly wage? Or if any part of the Peapod "delivery fee" goes to the driver?
I don't mind tipping, but on top of the $7 delivery fee, it gets costly.
Any information or advice is appreciated.
