    Beginning some new and exciting strategies that are sure to yield great results, open to feedback, experienced leadership, unparalleled opportunity for advancement, flexible scheduling for work-life balance, and award-winning training.

    Cons

    The usual cons you encounter at any job with conflicting personalities and those who can be resistant to change, but experienced leadership can help navigate anyone through these sorts of conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is a fast-paced, low-margin environment that requires lots of energy, commitment, and hard work.

    Pros

    NPC has allowed me to progress into a position that allows me personal growth. The company has been very supportive over the years in personal development. I started in a Shift Leader position and now offer HR support for 82 restaurants.

    Cons

    Sometimes with a wide span it makes it hard to visit all your locations as often as you would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe we are on the right track with the upcoming changes and we are well on our way to new levels of success!

    Pros

    Overall they Very flexible with schedules and the freedom to do what you need to make your area a success.

    Cons

    Overall, I feel they pay on the low side compared to other restaurant concepts. Very decentralized which makes operating as a team difficult.

    I have been working at NPC International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    NPC has given me the opportunity to grow, learn, advance my career over the years and be a part of a growing and dynamic company. If you have a strong work ethic, and have a desire to learn and do more and work towards those goals the growth opportunities are available. I have seen so many people accomplish their personal and business goals over the years and it is always exciting to see that happen.

    Cons

    The restaurant business is hard work and things tend to shift and change fairly regularly. So, you have to be able to adapt and adjust to changes as they come your way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep the lines of communication open. We love to hear about what is going on with the brand and how we are doing.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at NPC in Memphis TN is that we are passionate about our community. From American Cancer Society to World Hunger, we know that people are our business!!! We want to see young people grow into leaders and keep our valuable tenured team and their wisdom. We are the "Pizza Hut Family" and we take a lot of pride in our Pizza, our Teams and our Guests!

    Cons

    The challenges of working at NPC is that if you are not competitive and don't "come to win", you will feel like an outsider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take great players for granted...they need feedback too!

    Pros

    NPC is not a stagnant company. NPC understands the need to improve Pizza Hut products to drive customer satisfaction and loyalty, and is working to improve internal systems to drive improvements as well.

    Cons

    The parent company (Pizza Hut, Inc.) has not been as responsive as their competitors in marketing products. Internal system changes are viewed as challenges to past programs rather than competitive advantages to move the company forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, communicate!

    I have been working at NPC International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced, reasonable compensation, growth opportunities and reward for high performers.

    Cons

    Being in the "value" game has destroyed margins and PHI has moved away from our core occasion of dine-in which results in a lot of empty restaurants. Older locations and higher crime areas have made it difficult to attract and retain great talent. Employees want to work in up-to-date and well maintained locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics and breathe fresh life into tired assets. Talk to the guest and stop listening to the revolving door in Plano.
