I have been working at Papa John's

Pros

1) get some cash from tips every night, hopefully gas doesn't est into too much.
2) free pizza to make your kids happy ( occasionally on bad orders)
3) free slice of pizza if you are not tired of it.
4) meet plenty of people as the workers come and go ( so do network by all means)..
5) don't worry about being a felon or a drug test.

Cons

1) opening drivers do all deliveries, make pizza, slap dough, prep food, date and stock, and much more.
2) closing drivers get to do all deliveries across sectors and then wipe counters, sweep flour from the tile crevices, mop, set up store, and etc. No bonus at all with this extra work.
3) never get a raise after receiving "you an asset to papa john review."
4) work well beyond your schedule leave time if it is busy.
5) wait to clock in if it is slow as much as 2 hours but they want you to wait around off the clock until it business picks up.
6) Watch your 6 constantly cause it is the 5th most dangerous job to do. Plus it is minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop giving to so much to unproven GM and shift leaders that manipulate service percentages by learning passwords, appreciate the bottom so called unskilled workers some bonus as well. They do get the food to the end user.

    Pros

    Papa Johns is great if you want to get promoted because every other couple months a GM will burn out from working too hard and you will get your shot to be a slave as well.

    Cons

    Papa Johns excepts perfection when they don't have perfection themselves. You will never stop working too hard. You will be humiliated and talked about when you do not make your numbers; even if there are instances where it is out of your control. You will always have extremely high turnover because when the general managers drop from exhaustion; they hire a whole new staff; this makes for ignorant workers. Papa Johns expects anyone to be able to manage perfectly after two weeks of bull book training, which the managers don't even care about your personal development unless you're going to work for them. They expect you to do the impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hey, maybe you guys should actually give a rats butt about your workers and treat them with respect instead of extreme criticism. Oh, and GIVE THE STORES MORE LABOR SO THE GENERAL MANAGERS CAN ACTUALLY SEE THEIR FAMILIES!!!! It's one thing to have to work a lot when you are understaffed, but to have to work 65-75 hours to make labor is not right. Take a look at how much turnover you have; take that cost and figure out that it's actually better to pay people more than to hire and train and hire and train and hire and train. Oh, and upper management beyond General managers get paid too much, when the people actually working in the stores get paid nothing.
