    Nothing while I worked there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything was great when I worked there, HOWEVER, now when I go into the Wilma Rudolph PJs it just looks like no one cares. Employees uniforms are horrible: messy hair, untucked shirts, wrinkled pants-not from working for a few hours, wrinkled because they don't seem to care :(

    Pros

    I had a lot of fun working here. I worked on a campus location and although the work was long it was sill a lot of fun. I have nothing bad to say about my time here. Were very lenient when it came to time off because some employees were students.

    Cons

    During slow days, asked to go home

    During busy days (big games) asked to stay longer

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

    Pros

    i liked the friendly environment that the whole staff created. the managers were a lot of fun, the rest of the team was amazing to! i love that they chose me to train the new employees because i knew what image Papa Johns should be showing their customers. working at Papa Johns helped me get over my depression and see a better side of people

    Cons

    I didn't get benefits while working at papa johns. and toward the end of my employment they would work the whole team 2 hours and then send us home so they wouldn't have to give us a break, and for me, i was spending more gas than i was making money to buy it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I loved working at papa johns, but the people from head quarters should check in and see how all of their stores are treating their workers
