    I worked at Papa John's full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a delivery driver the tips were good. Flexible with hours so they will work around your school schedule

    Cons

    Working friday/saturday night is pretty much mandatory. Good news is the rush shift is only from 4-9. Also they put in a new rule that lets them pay delivery drivers less than minimum wage while they are clocked out on a run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop screwing over your drivers with below minimum wage pay. You guys charge your customers a delivery charge (2.20 in 2010) and at least half of that went in your pockets, while the customer tips less than they would because they believe all of it goes to the driver.

    I worked at Papa John's for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are fun to work with, and have remained friends with many of them.

    Cons

    NO federally mandated breaks, benefits (if you can get them) are basically nothing, little respect from higher ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your employees like people and not mindless slaves. There's a reason why in two and a half years I saw hundreds of people come and go with in a month of starting. People are people regardless of job position. Everyone deserves some respect.
