    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 worked at Little Caesar's part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had complete control over my schedule up to having twenty-eight hours per week. Another pro: quitting was quite satisfying.

    Cons

    I worked my butt off for three years with multiple managers telling me I was the hardest worker they had. I was never idle. I cleaned the walls if we weren't busy. I did all of this for minimum wage. It was my first job, and management kept telling me I was "lucky" to not be working at McDonald's or Walmart. They had me convinced. Much worse, I dealt with sexual harrasment for ALL of my last year. AND when I got a work related injury (pinched nerve from repetitive motion) I was told to not bother filing for workers' compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GIVE PEOPLE RAISES! Even if you have to have fewer workers to make the bottom line, it's better to pay people enough to not despise you and oh, maybe SURVIVE. Workers will be more reliable when they can rely more on their employers for adequate compensation.

    Pros

    You dont have to go to work everyday.Sometimes you get to eat the pizza.

    Cons

    No breaks.Few Hours (Maybe 4 days in one week)
    Stressful someone can order 30 pizza's and you have to make it in 1 hour while your assisting other customers. If your new to the job you will only get help like 2 days then its like your invisible and you get confused and dont know what your suppose to do.To many Managers and CoManagers you get confused.They messed up my check it took me a whole month to get it back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to welcome someone to the job and actually teach them the steps dont tell someone else to do it and then yell at the new employee becuase odf what the other person tould them to do.

    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.

    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

    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.
