    I worked at Papa John's

    Pros

    It has a better atmosphere and environment than all other business in the industry. Management are usually very cool to their employees and have a good down-to-earth attitude as opposed to other similar business where managers seem to dislike what they're doing. Also, they always come up with ways to improve employee productivity.

    Cons

    It is my impression that sales aren't as high as for other similar businesses so it may be more difficult to put in more hours. Also, usually the delivery is a bit slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should not hire someone just because they know them. Also, an on-site manager or responsible person to file complaints or for more important on site emergencies should be present. Otherwise complaints have to be directed to a district manager or Papa John's Corporate.
