    Pros

    Papa Johns has a fun atmosphere with great people. You'll spend most of your night in your car if the store is busy and you'll be doing various side work if there's no deliveries to take. minimum wage plus tips plus $1 for every order you deliver. i usually average anywhere from $16-$20/hr

    Cons

    The only major issue is wear and tear on your car. If you put a good set of tires on it and service it regularly it shouldn't be an issue for you.

    Advice to Management

    The advice to management is to train everyone on how to handle a busy store better. At points where we would get slammed the work would no longer feel fun and everything turned into work.

    Pros

    This is a company that focuses on making and delivering quality pizza -- every time, but that's not all. It also delivers a high quality, highly secure online ordering website. If you get the chance to work here, the experience will teach you things that you can take with you for a lifetime.

    Cons

    I really don't have any down side. I guess there were times I worked some long hours, but often it didn't seem that long when it was happening.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, hiring great people and making great pizza. ...and never, never stop serving the pepperoncinis with your pizzas!
