Pros

Endless opportunities for growth, fun, competitive environment

Cons

District Management was unfocused / distracted and really lacked the ability to mentor young leadership, and it often times caused people with high potential to taper off or wear out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people, you should really think about having enough general managers to operate your restaurants, and not expect 1 guy to help you run 3 different stores indefinitely.

    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.

    Hard to advance in the company, but great for a short term job, especially if you have a newish car.

    Pros

    The tips. On a really good night, it's not abnormal to leave with over $100. But it's all the luck of the draw, and depending on tips is scary at best.

    Cons

    It will destroy your vehicle. It's very hard to become a manager. They will tell you they're going to promote you, but never offer you the training you need to qualify, even if you ask, and will instead hire new people for managers and shift managers. If you're hired as a driver, don't expect to move up in the company. You aren't going anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider moving people up if they want to advance. when drivers want to become managers, they should be given the opportunity to. stop hiring new managers and give a chance to the people you already have.
