    Pros

    Growth of basic customer service skills and working in a fast-paced environment/under pressure, discount food, decent allowance of breaks

    Cons

    Extensive weekend hours, say goodbye to your Halloween, New Years, and Superbowl Sunday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing-- the business is run very professionally while still giving breathing room to be able to have fun and enjoy the job.

    Pros

    Well known brand, pizzas taste great. People at headquarters are nice until they have your money

    Cons

    Competition is very tight. Not enough resources and support to the small owners. Our health insurance was canceled without proper notice.

    Stick up for your people.

    Pros

    People are fun, work is relaxing for the most part, everyone is straight forward and clear about what needs to be done. You do get benefits, but it takes a year for it to kick in.

    Cons

    It's a food service job, which is pretty straight forward in what it all entails. If you enjoy doing it, you'll have a good time. If you don't, you won't. And it's all up to the manager to dictate the working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it going.
