    It was monotonous and tedious in that I saw how little this company had to offer in terms of advancement.

    I have been working at Little Caesar's

    Pros

    Their hiring process is fairly easy and straightforward. Also, learning how the store was run was simple and they even display these "how to" cards around the workplace for easy reference.

    Cons

    I did not feel appreciated as an employee. Also, my manager was extremely incompetent and he cared more about personal profits as opposed to making quality products for the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more supervision as to how the stores are run. Often times, the product being made receives many customer complaints because its overlooked and neglected in terms of quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs improvement in many different fields, starting with the main management. They usually let childish behavior run a-muck, while the manger turns a blind eye and allows/joins in.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Cons

    they hire to many people and put newbies on sign duty and dont give enough hours starting off and they try to keep there employes in a cage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire less people

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

    Pros

    -Pay isn't bad if you're working the salaried 50 hours max. Usually it ends up being much more than that.
    -Company does give a lot to charity, and the Love Kitchen is a great thing.
    -Lots of opportunities for promotion.

    Cons

    -Extremely tight labor charts, especially at lower volume stores. Difficult to run the numbers they want.
    -Turnover is high. Employees beg for hours but I can't afford to have them in the store.
    -Quality is expected across the board, yet lots of stores have different equipment (Some worse off than others).
    -Classes take place downtown, which can be difficult for some people to make.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to bring people in AND keep them, you have the make the job appealing. The pay for crew and assistants is low for the job they are doing, and I can't schedule them over 30 hours. So what incentive do they have to want to stay? I try to keep the environment very light so they won't want to quit, but then I look incompetent to my supervisor and corporate. It's a lose-lose situation.
    In regards to the classes comment above, why not have area specific classes? It's a lot more appealing for a future assistant/co-manager to travel to a store close to them than to go way out of their way.

    Scheduling is not felxible and cooperation is not up-to-date on technology. Better pay,full-time,insurance, and vacation is not offered unless your in upper management.
