I have been working at Papa John's part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Being either a delivery driver or a general manager is the best way to go. Don't even bother working at a franchise store if you're going to be an in-store employee or an assistant manager. Both get very little pay.
-Relatively low stress and easy job, depending on how managers treat you.

Cons

-Sometimes you're required to stay later than you plan for.
-Sometimes the managers treat you unfairly or try to enact stupid policies.
-Sometimes it's hard to get enough hours.
-Sometimes you have to take cuts in hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't make up your own policies. Be fair. Don't get a power trip.

    I worked at Papa John's full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Extremely high attention to product quality and customer service at the restaurant level. Overly excessive emphasis on customer who order online by over-discounting their orders and peeks.

    Cons

    There is essentially no company emphasis on development of a well-rounded consumer rewards program because the consumers who order by phone or walk-in are given far, far less opportunity to save money or be rewarded (as compared to online ordering customers). Middle management operations department has opted to revert to the way business was handled in the early years (1984 - 2003). General Managers and the Directors of Operations are the only contact for business customers (schools, organizations, apartments, hotels, retail, industrial) without the assistance of a dedicated account manager. This makes an ongoing relationship between company and customer challenging to grow at best. A worst it offers an opportunity for the business customer to shop around with other pizza suppliers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should re-instate the 2003 - 20012 test of a local level Account Manager who calls on business (schools, organizations, apartments, hotels, retail, industrial). Whatever salary is paid to the Account Manager should be divided among the restaurants supplied, i.e. the stores who will realized the increased pizza purchases and profits.
