It was monotonous and tedious in that I saw how little this company had to offer in terms of advancement.

Crew Member (Current Employee)

I have been working at Little Caesar's

ProsTheir hiring process is fairly easy and straightforward. Also, learning how the store was run was simple and they even display these "how to" cards around the workplace for easy reference.

ConsI did not feel appreciated as an employee. Also, my manager was extremely incompetent and he cared more about personal profits as opposed to making quality products for the customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be more supervision as to how the stores are run. Often times, the product being made receives many customer complaints because its overlooked and neglected in terms of quality.

Little Caesars

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Little Caesar's

ProsCustomer service.
Rising your experience and skill trades.
Improving your relations with general people and customers.
Learning how to prepare food.
Having a job.

ConsImmature co-workers.
Not kept to a professional level.
Have to work outside in the blazing sun for 5 hours or more.
Manager advocates immaturity and unprofessional-ism.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds improvement in many different fields, starting with the main management. They usually let childish behavior run a-muck, while the manger turns a blind eye and allows/joins in.

Good place to work if your 20

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Madison Heights, MI

I have been working at Little Caesar's

ProsVary nice customers. Co-workers are good people to work with.

ConsToo much micro management. Once your over the age of 35 you can forget any advancement at all. After 5 years of commitment to this company all I get is 5 hours a week.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow a little loyalty to those who have stuck it out.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

All levels, locally, need restructured

Marketing Director (Current Employee)
Huntington, WV

I have been working at Little Caesar's

ProsWell recognized company, lots of support from corporate.
Some what good amount of freedom as long as you have your hours in.

ConsDepending on the franchise owner the downsides can vary. I worked in the office not the restaurants, I reported to the owner who never had time to listen. The owner was not as involved in educating nor training on Little Caesars background.
This is a franchise that believes in the old sink or swim method.
There is not a employee handbook, big problem! Rules are more less made up as they go, and there is no fairness.
Not much support from co-workers.
No transportation offered, lots of travel.
Zero recognition.
Salary quite below national average and local average.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut more time into educating employees, offer incentives worth something.
Learn how to control your Tempers!
Follow thru is a must, not an option.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
