I worked at Papa John's part-time (more than an year)

Pros

They promote within, so moving up within the company is fairly easy.

Cons

As a driver you have to do more then the job description requires. I had to do the job of several in store employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire smarter people.

    I have been working at Papa John's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cash/Tip compensation on a daily basis, flexible working hours

    Cons

    Late nights, lack of quality managers within the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Multiple stores/managers are dishonest about service numbers in order to receive bonuses. The customer is the one who is getting worse service as a result.

    I have been working at Papa John's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good tips if you live in an area with rich people.

    Cons

    They make you work multiple hours a week off the clock, which is incredibly illegal. Every week you have to "donate" an hour putting coupons on people's doors. The schedule says be there at 5pm, yet you may not clock in until 5:30 if there's no delivery ready... In the mean time you are expected to do "side work" like dishes or box folding, for free. The schedule may say you work until 9pm but prepare to be sent home at 8pm if things get slow. They only give you ~20hrs a week because they don't want full-time employees, this is because it would increase the cost of pizza by $0.13 due to "obamacare". So they keep you part time to save $0.13 a pizza, meanwhile I can't pay rent without more hours.

    They contradict themselves.. They tell you do "x" and then when you do "x" they yell at you and tell you not to do "x". For example I was waiting by the oven I saw my order was coming out in 1-2 minutes. They yelled at me not to stand around by the oven, and go do dishes. So I smiled and went & did dishes.. Then I got yelled at for being in the back doing dishes when the order was ready.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making your employees work "off the clock" its illegal, and the few dollars you save is not worth the disdain for the customers it fosters
