    Pros

    Occasional free pizza, most of the people pretty cool and laid back.

    Cons

    Worked 2 locations...District managers super nit-picky to the point of wanting to tell them off and walk out on them. Some in store managers you just cant please...you cant work fast enough, again malking you want to walk out on them but not wanting to make your other co-workers job harder you stay. Schedules in the second store I worked in not adhered to, dont know why they even had them... And if you didnt stay past then your job was in jepardy since you were so expendable. Any chance of moving up meant you had to practically live there. Overall......not worth working here for minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay! Or at least lighten up and be thankful.

    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 Management

    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

    Pros

    Get out of hard work and into ur car where u can relax a little. Money from tips.

    Cons

    Fired me for taking to long on a few deliveries yet they were praising me weeks before that. There was also a scheduling conflict since I had multiple jobs but they knew that going in. Crazy fired from a pizza job and I'm 30 and college educated.

    Advice to Management

    Ur clueless. Stay there and suffer making peanuts or get a real job.. Hmm

    Pros

    I'm a driver which has worked out pretty good with my school schedule. I have classes mon-thurs then I work at Papa John's as a delivery driver thurs-sun evenings. It's a good weekend job because you don't have to wake up early. Nothing better than when the crap is hitting the fan inside the store, to just get your orders together and walk out the front door, haha. Having a job where you get to cruise around all night and listen to your choice of music and meeting different people every time you work is fun and keeps the job from getting too boring/tedious. The opportunity to make decent money for having no degree ($15/hr+) is achievable if you stay focused and do your job efficiently.

    Cons

    I would NOT work here as an insider. Pay is minimum wage and depending on who your manager/shift runner is, the stress level as an insider can be high (especially on fri nights.. or during the week if you're short-handed). My advice is get an older/reliable honda or toyota and BE A DRIVER!!

    Advice to Management

    Tons of micromanaging in this company. You need a managers password (or thumb) to do almost anything in the store relating to the computer systems. You have to ask to clock in, ask to do special things for customers, etc. Guess this is their way of mitigating mediocrity. Pay insiders, who deserve it, better. They might stay longer than a couple months.


  11. Typical of most pizza places

    Pros

    If you work in a good area you can make decent tips as a driver. Usually you can change your schedule with other employees which makes hours flexible.

    Cons

    Managers are always trying to squeeze every penny out of their positions and in the process makes for disloyal employees and high turnover. People generally don't care about their job. They are there to make money and that's it.

    Oh, and you have to pay for your own uniforms!

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees not against them.
