  1.  

    Pretty awful place to work. Great for entry level workers and those without experience.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    ~Easy to get a job in the store with no experience.
    ~On good days the driving position will pay better than any manager position will at 90% of other jobs.
    ~Small workplace.
    ~Oven duty and make-line will probably make you buff.
    ~Awesome employee discount, 50% off any item. Bad orders will often be sitting around by the end of the day for everyone to share. This job will never leave you hungry!

    Cons

    ~Incredibly loud, hot, and stressful place to work. Busy hours are hell.
    ~Corporate walk-throughs usually result in an efficient workplace being ruined and reassembled into what PJ's corporate seems to think is "efficient."
    ~Many rude customers, that is to be expected in the pizza business though.
    ~Your uniform will have a permanent sweat and dough smell by the end of the first month. You will come home smelling like this every single day after work.
    ~Air inside the store is filled with the powder that prevents dough from sticking. It sticks to your clothes, skin, and gives you terrible allergies as well.
    ~Cleaning the store is perhaps some of the hardest cleaning you will ever do. Pizza stores get INCREDIBLY dirty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to arrange the make-line and oven areas in a way that will allow them to work efficiently. Just because you think it works, doesn't mean it does.
