I have been working at Papa John's

Pros

Flexible schedule if you're a student like myself. Better rates for delivery drivers than any other pizza chain. Well at least in my area.

Cons

Driving a lot can make you tired

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work

    Upper management is completely out of touch and implement policies which hurt the company and their employees.

    Pros

    If you can tolerate having the life squeezed out of you: and you enjoy being a driver, money is OK. and you are a manager and you bonus (they will do everything they can to squeeze that out of you as well), money is good. There is no good reason to be a shift leader or in-store.

    Cons

    Working your rear off for a company that pays lip service to but does not truly value its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees! Not with platitudes, but with a cut of the store profit and sales. Schnatter is proud of what he accomplished and rightly so. However, the policies of the company do not reward the dedicated, hard-working, and competent employees the company relies upon. Instead of reality, the focus is on stock valuation, gimmicks, and image. Managers should bonus of off monthly store profit (15% maybe). That is it. If a manager is doing poorly, give him his bonus (if earned) and get someone in there who can do better. Assistant managers should be brought back. Whoever thought eliminating assistant managers at the store level was a good idea should be fired. Bonus (10% maybe) and treat them like managers above. Shift leaders and in-stores should bonus off of sales (2% maybe) while they are on the clock. Drivers should have their wages restored. Quit trying to squeeze every nickel and dime out of your customer level employees! Think about it. What kind of culture are you creating??? If you are hard up for money, squeeze middle and upper management. From what I have seen they bring little to no value to the business at the store level. It is really sad to see people getting paid so little for doing so much at the lower level, while those at the top come up with so many ridiculous ideas and get paid so well comparatively.

    Pros

    Decent, Flexible hours,laid back for a high school job. Better than other starter jobs- if the customer complains, throw them a free pizza. Easy as that.

    Cons

    You may be scheduled for 2-3 hours at a time, even less on slower days. Most of the time you wont leave at your scheduled time, so if your shift says 2:30-6:00, it really means 2:30 to 9pm. This is because the dinner rush can be very unpredictable, especially if management hasn't rotated dough correctly so your pizzas wont cook right. And if you end up working past your scheduled shift, because of unexpected rushes or poor dough management, you can get in serious trouble with higher ups who bark about labor all the time.

    Advice to Management

    If you want good quality food coming from your stores, you can't cut all your employees when there's a million pizzas on the make line screen.
