Pros

You can make some decent money moving up through the ranks through your own will. Bonus program is available, and tips are common.

Cons

This job can eat up your entire life, you may not have any time off. You may be tired on your 1 or 2 days off, if you get them. Expect 50-75 hour weeks. Your staff may be low quality, because of pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You usually get what you pay for. Give raises to those who deserve it.

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

    Pros

    Some really awesome managers
    Fast paced environment
    A very strong system for production
    Flexible work schedule (excluding holidays)
    50% employee discount

    Cons

    Tendency to promote very young managers
    Difficult to receive promotions
    Sometimes very laborious work
    Free food for complaints no matter how many times they've received free food before
    Very High turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees if you want them to respect you. The company does not really care about the workers on the bottom but some kind of a raise for hardworking, loyal employees is something to fight for.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment
    Depending on location I think delivery driving is the way to go though I hear you can actually make a lot less in some stores.
    Made friends

    Cons

    Irresponsible franchise owners notably late pay (up to weeks at a time).
    Low morale
    Moving up to manager was never worth the stuff you have to deal with.
    Hours can be way less than scheduled or way more. Only worked what was on the schedule about 10% of the time.
    High school drama
    Most employees had poor view of owners and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Basically needs to treat employees better.
    Store managers and pretty much everyone gets frustrated with owners and upper management who barely work for their companies and still collect the paychecks.
