The Domino's 'Survivor' Challenge Had TikTok Fighting

How do you know you're valued at work? It could be that your boss likes to shower you with embarrassing praise in front of everyone, or perhaps it's as simple as the coffee machine providing you with a slightly less watery drink than your co-workers.

However highly regarded you feel at work, pay is always a crucial component. While there's little doubt that delivery drivers work tirelessly, Domino's drivers earn an average of $15.92 an hour, which some argue is not enough.

However, according to a TikTok video uploaded by user @denyciadawn, Domino's stores in Kentucky and Indiana have been offering their pizza delivery workers the chance to win $10,000 — but in return for working at least 60 days in a row. Termed the Survivor Driver Edition, @denyciadawn describes the competition as "insulting to the working class", and claims they will never buy Domino's pizza again. Naturally, many TikTok users agree with the sentiment, but others argue that the challenge has merit.

Many TikTok viewers are shocked by Domino's promotion

Domino's competition has come under fire on TikTok. One viewer cynically suggests the competition is designed simply to get managers bonuses for good performance, while another opines that it exploits pizza delivery drivers. The promotion has also been compared to "The Hunger Games" and "Squid Game", and another claims Domino's should pay its employees a "liveable wage". One comment bluntly states: "This is a horror show."

Some people were more sympathetic with Domino's idea, pointing out that employee participation is optional. Commentators have also noted that the competition requires three hours of work a day, which they said is a manageable amount of time.

The TikTok video has amassed over 225,000 views, which may have prompted the response from Domino's. According to Newsweek, Domino's credited a local franchisee with publicizing the promotion, stating that it believes it has since been discontinued.
