    Pros

    Fun work environment and you get to meet some really fun people that'll make you want to stay. The pizza is also very tasty

    Cons

    If you don't like smiling or kids do not apply here. Your manager will get on to you about it. There is also a lot of cleaning on slow days which is most days.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your workers when they tell you something. Do not put them in an area that they do not wish to be in. It would make for a better work environment.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, cool people to work with, lots of free pizza. Definitely a good choice as a first job, I started at 16 and it's been a good conversation starter for other job interviews.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of awful parents, no real chance for pay increase. Not a great place to work after high school. Most people are high school students, and there's no real advancement opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, every store is different, but at mine they weren't always consistent with the schedule so we were short a lot of the time, so we had a lot of extra work for no reason.

    Pros

    Fun and interesting work and never a dull moment. You never know what is going to happen next.

    The hours were not the best, especially on the weekends. They do not care much for time outside of work and your life outside of work.

    Pros

    - I worked with a great team of professionals
    - Former management had good, long-term vision for the company
    - I took pride in working for a company that put so many smiles on so many children's faces
    - Never a dull moment; every day was different

    Cons

    - New ownership = short-term thinking. It's all about their exit in a few years
    - Labor pressure on store operations was unrealistic; too much pressure on them to do more with less
    - This was a great place to work before current PE firm took ownership

    Advice to Management

    None. They have their marching orders.

  9. Management is awful, pay is mediocre.
