    Pros

    This is a company that focuses on making and delivering quality pizza -- every time, but that's not all. It also delivers a high quality, highly secure online ordering website. If you get the chance to work here, the experience will teach you things that you can take with you for a lifetime.

    Cons

    I really don't have any down side. I guess there were times I worked some long hours, but often it didn't seem that long when it was happening.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, hiring great people and making great pizza. ...and never, never stop serving the pepperoncinis with your pizzas!

    -free food all the time

    -laid back enviornment

    Cons

    Pros

    Friendly environment, you can eat food,

    Cons

    The one I worked at didn't want to put you on the schedule. You'll work like twice a week making $8.50 and hour. If the store wasn't busy they'll let you leave no matter if you just got there 30 minutes to an hour ago. Got paid a basic level employee wage but worked as if I was a manager.

    Fairly good work environment, and you make your own schedule

    Cons

    Management wasn't the best because they focused mainly on profits

    Advice to Management

    pay more attention to the customer than the profits
