Crew Member Interview

Crew Member
Cincinnati, OH

I applied online and interviewed at Papa John's.

Interview Details – Filled out application online, got an email for the interview three days later came in for interview two days after that. The interview was short less than five minutes it was pretty straight forward just questions about my availability.

Interview Question – When am i available to work?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They say part time but its really not true. They also will not adjust days for schooling so weekday availability preferred as well as weekends.

Pizza Delivery Driver Interview

Pizza Delivery Driver
Indianapolis, IN

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Papa John's in June 2010.

Interview Details – I called a local store and asked if they were hiring drivers. The manager asked me to come in and fill out an application. When I submitted the application, the manager asked me to obtain a background check. I obtained the background check and submitted it to the store. The manager scheduled a time to train on the computers and ordered shirts and name tags for me. Once I completed the training, I was ready to be scheduled for work.

Interview Question – When you apply for a delivery position, you are scheduled for an orientation meeting as part of the training. During the meeting, the interviewer tells you about the company culture and what is expected. They explained company intolerance for people who show up to the orientation when they are scheduled.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The local area business was slow.

Pizza Delivery Driver Interview

Pizza Delivery Driver

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Papa John's in April 2010.

Interview Details – Walked in, filled out application, got hired on the spot. I had a family member that worked here so they vouched for me. I believe now you have to go online to fill out an application. However, stopping by to talk with the GM (general manager) would be recommended.

Interview Question – When can you start?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiating for driver pay. You get what they pay or you don't work here.

Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

Digital Marketing Specialist

I applied through other source and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Papa John's.

Interview Details – I was initially contacted through LinkedIn via the hiring manager. They sent me the job description and asked me if I would be interested. I applied online and messaged him back letting him know that I found this to be an exciting opportunity.

A few days later I got a call from HR asking to schedule a phone interview. I later came to find out that this was the "phone screening" process. I had about a 15 minute conversation with HR that asked standard interview questions and prompted me about my previous experience on my resume. It seemed as though he asked 2-3 common interview questions, 2-3 questions about my experience and 2-3 questions the person looking to fill the position would want to know. I think he was taking notes while I was talking. I am sure he probably gave those notes to the person hiring for the position.

A day later I was contacted again to set up an in person interview by the end of the week. It seemed to me that they were wanting to move this along quickly. The day before my interview they had to change it to a phone interview because the person doing the interview had to leave town. This interview had similar questions to the phone screen. It was pretty basic, just wanting to know my experience. The interviewer talked a lot more than I did and almost seemed to be selling me the job.

The next day, again I was contacted by HR wanting to reschedule the in-person interview. I figured that the first time we spoke was more to just be polite and not cancel because the in-person interview was more of what I expected from the process. I interviewed with 2 men that I would be working with. They both took turns asking questions. The conversation was pretty relaxed yet formal. The interview probably lasted a half an hour.

It was right around the holidays so this time it took them a while to get back to me but the next time they contacted me (3 weeks later) it was to offer me the job.
