    I have been working at Little Caesar's part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you get along with management, you'll get regular hours, flexible scheduling, and an incredible simple work day. If your co-workers are competent, every work day will be very easy and stress-free.

    Cons

    On the other hand, if your manager doesn't like you, you're gonna have a bad time. They're free to give you the worst hours, most tedious tasks, smallest teams, and hand out write-ups for the most marginal errors. One example of such behavior is that I was trained by a lady who literally did not speak one word in a common language with me, yet I was reprimanded for not followings procedures that I didn't know about. You can also get stuck with only new hires for entire sections of the day, leading to incredibly stressful situations. It also goes without saying that since this is a service-industry job, customers will frequently berate and verbally abuse cashiers and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to ensure a positive work environment is available to all workers, not just the ones who got lucky enough to be placed at a relaxed store.

    I have been working at Little Caesar's full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is very laid back here. In two years I went from a crew member to an assistant manager. The growth rate seems quacking than usual BUT once you become an assistant there is not a whole lot of room for growth after that. When you ask for time off, you receive it. And you are not forced to be a shakerboarder unless that is what you are hired in as.

    Cons

    It is a VERY fast paced working environment and can be very stressful at times. Training is not something they spend quality time doing for their employees, however, it is a job that can be self taught and you can come up with your own ways of doing things that seem quicker to you. No vacation pay, 401K, or insurance for any full time employee unless you are a salaried general manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that there should be schedule making regulations. One pay period I have over 80 hours and the next period I have 45. Where is the consistency? For being such a wealthy company I feel that Assistant managers should have a set pay rate, higher than 9 an hour as I am only getting paid 50 cents more an hour than I was as a crew member.

    I have been working at Little Caesar's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Two of my coworkers are easy to get along with and understand my situation and are very helpful

    Cons

    My manager has three cashiers on duty at the same time, myself included. I only work an hour a day. It's ridiculous already. I honestly think its because I am pregnant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only hire as much cashiers as needed. Do not schedule more than two cashiers a day. Treat everyone equally even if the are pregnant.

    Pros

    Great Product Quality
    Great Value
    Excellent Variety
    Generally Fun Environment To Work In
    Enjoyed Most Of My Coworkers

    Cons

    Hot and Ready System Is Flawed
    Stores Need A Psychic On Staff To Be Successful
    Very Stressful At Times
    Customers Are Often Very Rude Toward Employees
    Low Pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our "state of the art" computer system did not function properly. Anticipating the flow of business was very difficult. You are either understaffed and overworked, or overstaffed and reprimanded for wasting company money.
