    Pros

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

    Cons

    Depending 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 Management

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Too 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 Management

    Show a little loyalty to those who have stuck it out.

    Pros

    $1 discount on pizza and other goods.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything, extremely incompetent management that attempts to maintain a high turnover rate by simply refusing employees hours.

    Advice to Management

    Go to school and learn something.

    Pros

    Steady work, friendships made, fresh product, no real hard or extremely difficult tasks, good in an established customer base, decent pay.

    Cons

    Revolving door for management and crew at all times, no support from upper management, hostile work environment, various forms of harassment and discrimination, no clear picture of bonus structure as it evolves to say you get it but never do, minimum wage crew is all you get, chain of command not followed as it is supposed to be, senior General managers are those who have lasted 6 months and are up for a promotion?, managers who threaten violence are rehired as not enough managers to go around (i.e. revolving door)...need I go on?

    Advice to Management

    CLIMATE SURVEY, to all stores with current and former managers and crew. This would rock your world at the amount of deceit and illegalities that go on in the Baton Rouge market.

    Pros

    Great food experience , good job for High school graduate

    Cons

    Not flexible enough when you have to attend classes. Manager makes facial expressions, gives contradicting orders, does not allow employees any breaks but takes several smoke breaks herself. Spreads fear with firing and giving ultimatums. Keeps pizza over expiration time to save money.

    Advice to Management

    A Manager should be true to his job title. You have to MANAGE people, set a good role model and help people to get their best out of them. Remember, without the bottom line you can do nothing.Instead of firing rather pair not so good workers with excellent workers, so they can learn. And most of it listen to your employees and try to help them but not by ditching them.

    Pros

    great team of people to work with

    Cons

    being a cashier, dealing with customers, keeping customers from waiting for their orders

    Advice to Management

    don't discriminate women by training them all as cashiers. Not all of them want to be cashiers. People will quit if they are unhappy with their job.

    Pros

    Able to take home extra pies when working closing shift. When outside you can listen to your music. Customer service experience

    Cons

    No time for lunch, would work a 10 hour shift and only have a 10 minute lunch in the back. low pay poor time management overworked repetitive

    Advice to Management

    Take time to learn employee names and not play favorites. Take the time to actually make sure you hire capable workers. That and well the kitchen would have it's days where if we had a random inspection, we'd get shut down but the boss wouldn't care as long as noone saw and the customers were happy.

    Pros

    Good work for High school students

    Cons

    Prejudice, Too much politics, this shops motto is hard work doesn't matter as long as your boss likes you, Just like any politicians the owners promise alot of things but never follow through. take advantage of hardworking people and undermines the employee's. Not allowed to take breaks unless we clock out but in restaurant business we can't clock out most of the times because we are always busy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people how you want to be treated and Respect is not given, its earned. What goes around comes around.
