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

    Pros

    Fun work environment, great manager who was really good with hours.

    Cons

    Manager left shortly after I did. Rushes were insane with lines out the door, and people getting very angry if having to wait less then three minutes for a pizza.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employes out. There are many that are going to school that can only work part time, don't overlook these people. Many employees that I met that were only part time worked harder than the full time

    I have been working at Little Caesar's

    Pros

    some of the people you work with are really fun and just talking while working makes the time go by very fast! you meet a lot of new people and most of them are very nice. flexible scheduling has to be a big plus too, only if your shift supervisor actually pays attention to the details. if so then you'll have no problem! very easy and in routine!

    Cons

    HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT. at my store it seemed that they were running out of managers so they would promote random crew members just to be managers. they dont properly train them either! if you do choose the closing shift, you better pray that you aren't there cleaning until 2 am. little caesars has really silly rules and sometimes they discourage you from doing the actual right thing. also hot-n-ready is IMPOSSIBLE. what a lot of people don't understand is hot-n-ready is really for a customer to order only 1 pizza. many low income families come and feed their children because its so cheap and they tend to order around 4-5 pizzas at a time and if you are constantly getting those kinds of orders in, you can imagine how backed up our oven becomes. if you work here tend to get yelled at by customers for not having their walk-in order for 10 cheese not ready. seriously there are so many problems with this system it will never add up. it takes 20-39 seconds to give out a pizza but around 7-8 minutes for a pizza to cook. save yourself the anxiety and stress for another job. anything will be better than little caesars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i don't even know where to begin. really get rid of the "hot-n-ready" slogan cause it never is ready and it'll save you from all the complaints you guys stack up.

    Pros

    Very easy job. All you have to do is really pay attention and do not let pizzas burn. This is a good place to begin working as it will teach you to multitask.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth. Rare raise in salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize it is a minimum wage job and people will treat it as such.

    I worked at Little Caesar's full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stepping-stone job. Opportunity for growth, experience and development of certain qualities that serve as a perfect entry into the work-force.

    Cons

    As with most franchises, all positive quirks related to work and pay rely solely on the management style of the owners. Most Little Caesars restaurants consist of young employees that are restricted to minimum wage regardless of effort or workload. The approach explained to me by the owners of the franchise I worked at was as follows: "Hire a bunch of 16 year olds, and when they start asking for too much money--fire them." Beware. Also, as a manager, do not expect benefits, overtime, or a work-life balance. As the store manager, I was forced to work a regular weekly amount of 50-70 hours in order to maintain optimal function of the store (season transition), yet I only got paid for 40 hours due to refusal to pay overtime (salary). Having to work 20-50 hours for free every paycheck was very mentally draining, and resulted in a complete loss of any work-life balance. Lastly, the regional supervisors are extremely unprofessional, and if you do not make an attempt to fit into their "clique", you will be treated poorly and discriminated against.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize proper talent, treat employees better, and train supervisors to act on a professional basis rather than a personal one.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere; after a while everyone really starts to feel like a big family. stations are easy to learn its just a whole bunch of repetition after you've learned it all really. work hours are flexible; if your in school or you have other main priorities they emphasize with you and give you the shifts you actually want based upon your schedule, they have really stable schedules they don't like throwing you around like the dummy you feel you are working there, also the post schedules two weeks in advance and usually always give you your requested day off.

    Cons

    Busy sometimes you really don't even notice the time nor have the time to breathe. customers are ghetto literally, their a lot of low income families coming for our cheap pizzas, nothing wrong with it if it didn't come with a crap load more attitude, robberies, and homeless people leaking outside of your company doorstep. no hours HRs policies just get worse and worse regarding store hours considering how busy it is you'd think this wouldn't be a problem. pay raises, at the rare occasion you receive one for your efforts are only five cents oh joy let me go shopping now, what a way to make us feel appreciated. understaffed; the company takes away hours stating we don't have any but yet work is constantly busy and then throws all the hours on the general manager who is already over worked as is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    managers need to show some gratitude to those worthy to deem themselves as hard workers, give us some decent raises so we wanna stay and work, too many negative policy's then positive, and my god either hire more people or give us more hours please.

    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
