    Pros

    Workplace is like a family, flexible hours, free food

    Cons

    Terrible upper management, no concern for employees, unfair policies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on retention at the crew level, and you wouldn't have such problems later on, drug test employees and pay them more to attract quality workers

    It was okay.

    I worked at Little Caesar's

    Pros

    Its a good job for a first job, but not something you would want to have for a couple of years. Good company values. Not a very strict company.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. Unless your the general manager, you are part time no matter what. So not only is the pay horrible, you barely get any hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider giving people full time positions.

    I worked at Little Caesar's part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I found the job to be fun, that was probably the best part. Making pizzas was fun for a while. I even enjoyed doing prep work like cutting veggies, sorting chicken wings, bagging crazy bread.

    Cons

    Advancing in this company is extremely frustrating, at least at the location I worked out. Management did not care how well you performed, instead they promoted favorites even if they were not qualified. Working conditions were also insanely rough. My manager did not offer breaks, even on 8 hour shifts. The summer I worked there the air conditioner worked for about two days and they never cared to fix it. Overall it was hot, tiring, and frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't choose favorites. It's not fair and it allows for mistakes to be made. You've also got to make your employees comfortable or they'll quit.

    Pros

    It really is an easy job. Obviously there are busy hours and slow hours. Great for first time work.

    Cons

    Low pay but what do you expect its fast food with five dollar pies.

    I have been working at Little Caesar's full-time (more than an 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.

    Pros

    Easy to get along with coworkers, managers rotate jobs so it's not only the same thing every day, very flexible hours

    Cons

    Minimum wage, only get $.10 raise every 6 months. Not a full-time job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better chances for advancement, bigger raises after 6 months

    Your experience will vary greatly based on co-workers.

    I have been working at Little Caesar's part-time (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.
