    I have been working at Papa John's part-time (More than 3 years)

    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

    The culture is great and the people you work with are outstanding. Work environment is relaxed and minimal politics at the corporate HQ. Many of the silos that once existed between departments have been torn down. There is more cross functional collaboration now and this has greatly improved performance and morale. I cannot say too many good things about the people who work at the corporate office. Most have a high level of team orientation and work hard to support others in the company. Many of the managers, directors and Sr. leaders show great concern for their team members. I personally have seen several go the extra mile. Nigel Travis has done great things to build morale among the team and is very good at communicating.

    Cons

    Sometimes things change very quickly and you must be comfortable with rapid change to work there. Benefits are not as good as other employers in area. Due to constant budget constraints several areas are understaffed and team members in those areas are over worked and highly stressed. The challenges of the current economy and the costs of commodities and labor place constant pressure on the budget and there are "seasons" of cost containment that result in travel restrictions etc. Upper management is against laying anyone off but hiring is often suspended and staffing is seldom in line with performance expectations.

    Advice to Management

    You have a very dedicated workforce but many are highly stressed out due to workload.
