    Pros

    Flexible schedule, easy work. I was part time while in school and it was great for me. Delivering is fun because you get out of the store and listen to music all night in your car.

    Cons

    Low pay for in store jobs.
    Inconsistent pay when delivering because it's based on tips.
    Every thing you wear to work, and your car, will smell like pizza.

    Pros

    Coworkers were great and made the job bearable. We had a sort of "suffering together" attitude.

    Cons

    Minimum wage jobs are not fun anyway, but this company should treat the workers as more than pawns to make a profit. Regulations, rules, and compensation reflected very poor attitudes towards us workers. My in-store boss seemed sympathetic, though there wasn't a lot he could do within the rules pressed upon him from higher up.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your workers by treating them fairly and paying them fairly. Do not punish them when you are pressured into treating them slightly better.

    Pros

    The team members and the products.

    Cons

    This company treats you like dirt. They do not care about how good of a job you do. You will never get a raise. They call you "a dime a dozen". I use to love this company and love coming to work...now I hate everything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Good, but will fire you at the drop of a hat.

  7. Semi hard. Work fast pace

    Pros

    Great for a part time job not worth the hassle for a career. Great for college students with food discount.

    Cons

    At my store, my manager plays politics and does not cross-train others. Does a decent job, but does not think proactively. Only schedule you from 5-10 pm

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the managers you hire or promote have decent communication skills and an as actual as bility to managej
