I worked at Pizza Hut part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Free food. Free drinks. Depends on how nice your manager is and how much that manager's manager is tightening thumbscrews about food expenditures.

If you are a driver, you spend a lot of time on the road away from the workplace- that means not interacting with customers or dealing with orders as much. It is one of the fun parts of the job.

I tended to wash dishes and do dough prep during down time. Both are activities where you can easily zone out and the time passes at a decent pace.

People who are either dragging along the bottom or at a crossroads in life work there. The former can be difficult to work with; the latter can be interesting.

Cons

The free food will make you fat.

You get a $2 dispatch fee, which many customers take to mean they don't need to tip you.

The job reinforces negative stereotypes about minorities not tipping- because sadly, they typically don't.

Your vehicle will suffer long term wear and tear that makes the job not worth it. And it will smell like pizza, not to you, but to everyone else who gets in your car.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dispatch fee increases based on how much is ordered or how far away you are. We are in the internet age with google maps and other things, this is definitely possible.

Company vehicles. NPC makes loads of money. It would not be hard to swing a company vehicle, or heck, at least some oil change coupons from the local auto shop or something.

    I have been working at Pizza Hut full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, decent tips, fair wage for drivers, fair mileage, limited benefits, and good coworkers.

    Cons

    No full-time hours available except for management, and there are threats that this could change. If you want to advance in the company be prepared to sell yourself to the company as a slave. RGM's are required to work 60 hours a week, but due to low hourly rates for shift managers and high turn over they end up working a lot more than that. If you are a shift manager and want to drive, good luck with that. You will make more money as a driver, because due to high turn over you will be forced to work more hours as a manager and sometimes all of your hours will be manager hours. Training is poor, because there is no money to train new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If Pizza Hut wants A+ employees they need to pay them better. Shift managers need 20 driving hours a week at least if they are going to make enough money to make the job worth it. HIre a bunch of Shift Leads and give them 20 driving hours a week, this will help out with the high turnover. Also, understand that not everyone wants to promote because they don't want to be a Pizza Hut slave, it's called quality of life, and I know most RGM's working for pizza hut don't have one, so they must not know what it is. But, I ask of you RGM's to search deep within your memories and try to remember what that quality of life was like, and to understand why someone would not want to give that up by working 60 to 100 hours a week at a fast-food pizza chain.
