    Flexible hours, consistent work, and room for growth.

    I have been working at Papa Gino's Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy job. Can be fun with the right staff. There really isn't much more to say. I run a pizza place, it isn't rocket science.

    Cons

    No raises. Period. The company is constantly cheapening the brand by switching to cheaper products. Tons of micromanagement from district managers. Constant pressure to reduce costs and cut labor all at the detriment to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    There is so much oversight and micromanaging from the district managers that it makes it hard for us to move forward on anything. The requirement for a member of management to stay up front at all times reduces us to overpaid cashiers, while other more important things necessary for the day to day operations gets pushed to the very end of our shifts and is done hurried if not completely forgotten.

    I worked at Papa Gino's Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees you meet are actually awesome. Best part of the job was getting to work around people I loved. The tips if you're a driver are pretty decent.

    Cons

    The company could care less about its employees. If it's not staffed right it can be stressful. The pay is terrible unless you become a manager. They don't give any incentive to work harder or to be a better employee.

    Advice to Management

    You're penny smart pound foolish. Start caring and taking stock in the good employees you have and they will make the company money. You worry too much about all the arbitrary rules.

    Pros

    Good tips. You can make 30 bucks in tips in a really good day. The owners are really friendly and nice.

    Cons

    Long hours and weekends are mandatory. Pretty much if you won't work both Saturday and sunday, your fired.

    Advice to Management

    Give the workers a break. I cut my finger so many times there to the bone and was told to keep working. No one is going to want to work for you if you treat them like slaves.

    Pros

    None really - I suppose that it was easy to land a job here. Might be good for high school or college students.

    Cons

    Horrible management, horrible upper management, bad pay, horrible hours

    Advice to Management

    Maybe pay more for the delivery drivers, who are expected to do EVERYTHING in the store (that other positions get paid more to do) - and tips are not an excuse, when you send other positions out in urgent situations and they get to keep said tips.

    I worked at Papa Gino's Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, sometimes. My GM was supportive.

    Cons

    No employee perks. No incentives. All my coworkers would rather get high than do their jobs. HR doesn't respond to regular employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find people to work there that aren't scum of the earth and reward those who do their jobs.

    I worked at Papa Gino's Holdings part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts on food, some good coworkers and friendly guests of the restaurant.

    Cons

    Managers treat wait personal as trash, abuse them verbally. Absolutely ridiculous wage. Dinner rush gets out of hand and is very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better.
