Schedule & Compensation:

Philly Foodworks hires drivers on an independent contract base. Each driver is expected to fill out a 1099 form. This means taxes are not withheld from a driver’s pay. Philly Foodworks submits documents reporting your earnings to the IRS. The driver will be responsible for paying taxes on the amount they’ve earned. Since this is an independent contract position you can use items from the below list as deductions.

This position can be anywhere from 1 - 4 days and up to 9 hours a day based on the driver’s availability and the route needs.
 

Hours of work are Tuesday - Thursday (occasional Friday)

Tuesday: 9:30 am on (dependant upon assigned routes, one route can be 2-3 hours, two routes can be up to 8 hours)

The start time is dependant on the route but the earliest arrival time for each day is what is noted above. Depending on driver availability and vehicle determines how many routes can/will be assigned to the driver. Schedules can be flexible based on driver and Philly Foodworks’ needs.

 

Compensation ranges on the volume and mileage of each route by day. Gas & mileage reimbursement is figured into the rate of each route. The lightest and smallest route can start at $75.00 and range as high as $125. The larger and more demanding the route the higher the rate for the route. Once a driver is trained they can assume a repeating weekly schedule unless there are holidays or weather circumstances causing a change in the delivery days. Scheduling availability bonuses, as well as paid time off, are available once a driver reaches 90 days with Philly Foodworks.
