    Pros

    Family owned company with a true sense of self. I loved my job, and the people that I worked with. I was taught by some of the best people in the business on how to run a business.

    Cons

    The hours were long and the support from some levels of management weren't there at times. It is very hard to advance outside of a restaurant. The salary for the level of work done is not on the same level as other places.

    Advice to Management

    Find a program that truly trains and helps your managers grow out of the store level.

    Pros

    Feels like family. Current owners are very involved and business is growing at a great pace. Love the time I've invested with them.

    Cons

    Drama and lack of enthusiasm from management. It has so much potential with the right staff there might still be a few bad apples holding improvements back

    Advice to Management

    Hire acountable people but at the same time pay fair bececase it doesn't matter what it may be you get what u pay for u don't pay much u don't get much maybe that's why the staff has problems caring.

    Pros

    Pretty simple job, serving pizza to others. Had to work in the kitchen also. Decent fellow employees.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, the managers could be extremely unprofessional, the other employees were unreliable and would leave you with a lot of work.

    Advice to Management

    Make more requirements for store managers. A lot of the ones I had were very unprofessional and rude.

    Pros

    I like working at Donatos because we are a family. I get to come to work everyday and be with my good friends. I've gotten several raises since starting. I am considered a full time employee.

    Cons

    Slow at promoting people. Lazy managers, obviously that will change from store to store though. Half the managers dislike each other

    Advice to Management

    Get along better and don't play favorites
