  1. This company taught me a lot about work ethic, but they're a greedy and ungrateful company.

    I worked at Papa John's

    Pros

    Free food, learn customer service, and maybe you'll meet some cool people.

    Cons

    Rude and inconsiderate customers, long tiring hours with little pay, smelly clothes, lazy co-workers, and more times than not a lazy selfish inconsiderate general manager who wants to make the big bucks while you give your blood sweat and tears.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your lower management.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone has great moods most of the time. Very good fun family environment in management staff.

    Cons

    All young employees who don't care. Never room for moving up unless you are part of the family or worked there for 9 years. not much training just put in a car and go. No one gets hours. They tell you you can get $200 in tips a night on the weekends but that's not true. They hire like 20 drivers and all drivers work every weekend. So, with all drivers working you cant get pass 25 trips IF you know the area and know were every house is. (back to being there for 9years). If they only had 5 drivers a night you would be able to make money. I would use half a tank of gas a night so after you $5.00 a hour paycheck you don't make money. even with tips because half the time you drive 25mins to a house who only tips $2-3.00...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know family comes first but i would put more than family as management. Most of them couldn't count so they rounded up on what you owe to company. Oh by the way having one black manger and everyone else in the family doesn't count.

    I have been working at Papa John's

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with and I for the most part enjoyed the work. Throwing out the dough was definitely the best option of the jobs in the store.

    Cons

    It was too busy and the only times they would schedule me to work were on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was a corporate store and the management did not have the right incentives to run a quality store besides when a corporate checkup was coming.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    10-20+ an hour depending on the night as a delivery driver
    free food almost every night. Get to meet many friendly customers

    Cons

    In-store chores like cleaning suck. Middle management often sucks. You will never enjoy pizza again after a few years. Work is somewhat physical and tiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay in-store team members more. Not fair that they do more work while drivers make 2 or 3 times more money.
