    Pros

    There is a fair amount of upward mobility opportunity within this organization and it is a great place to begin a career in management, however, if idle in a single position for too long, it is possible to get stuck at the company without advancing your career. If you end up finding yourself stagnant for too long, it is a wise decision to take what you have learned and apply it to future endeavors. In order to grow your career at this company you must possess a high level of determination to the daily operations, and be willing to get the job done at nearly any cost. Overall, it is a good place to begin your career in management or to be an external hire into upper management once you have garnered some outside experience, but I would advise against managing a store for many, many years before waiting for a promotion.

    Cons

    Long work hours, which is acceptable, however they are trying because of the mid-day hours involved, 10-830pm. Those specific hours make it difficult to have any personal life outside of your store location. Work is quite redundant but you can sculpt approaches to make it interesting, overall, the work environment is fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more flexibility to the store manager's schedule, that was the main issue with my time at Little Caesars, I was the store manager but still had a required schedule and if I wanted to alter it in any way, it needed the stamp of approval from the Area Supervisor.

    Pros

    bi-weekly pay, somewhat decent people. some holidays off, you can take tips ( if you manager doesn't see) good job if you are a 16 year old teenager

    Cons

    everything. favoritism everywhere, store manager not knowing what she was doing. owners were cheap, and rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be thorough with inspections. inspect managers and crew. managers were chewing out in store relationships when their "favorites were dating" make sure managers aren't biased and that owners are actually qualified to run a store

    Pros

    Free food (most of the time), very simple work, easy to stay busy, great people. It's a great entry level job. Fun place to work. Decent pay for the area for management. The owners have very high standards of cleanliness and conduct. The owners take good care of their management, but expect a great deal from them. However, they never expect any employee to do anything they wouldn't do, or haven't done, themselves.

    Cons

    Unreliable workers, unpredictable schedule, having to work at a moment's notice, high turnover, unpredictable busy times, unpredictable not-busy times. The fact that it is a very entry level job means that you work primarily with teenagers and ex cons. The majority of my coworkers were stoned a lot of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better starting pay to attract better workers. Have an attourney find a good way to drug screen employees.

    Pros

    I love the people I work with on a daily basis and I love making pizza. My benefits are perfect for what I need. Overall I'm very satisfied with most aspects of my employment here.

    Cons

    A recent shift was made in how our schedule works with upper store management being required to work 10-11 AM shifts until 9-10 PM 5 days a week. This is obviously extremely abnormal in the food industry. We were told by upper office management this is because we in store "are not devoted or invested enough in our work. You need to stop worrying about friends and family and worry more about your paycheck."

    As much as I have loved this job, this was a massive nail in the coffin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-Life balance is important. A disrespect to that is a disrespect to your employees.
