    Pros

    papa Johns is a familiar name, and they frequent customers. Easy work.

    Cons

    not a lot of accountability by management. They don' t recognize talent to move up. No pay raises for drivers and no shift premium for working late hours into the night.

    Advice to Management

    train the drivers on how to do side work. Many times this is their first job and don't know how to do it correctly or care. In many cases, the cleanliness would shut a rest. Down in other states.

    Pros

    Day-to-day work not challenging, good healthcare benefits, and high potential income

    Cons

    Tips are unpredictable, often overstaffed, have to work in rain, snow, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Only schedule just enough drivers so that everyone can make the money they need. If there are six people waiting for a delivery, then you have too many drivers on duty.

    Pros

    Lucky days have really good pay. If you have no job, and want a job that's not extremely demanding, and can have some decent pay sometimes, or want a job that's about moving up the ladder, go for it.

    Cons

    Unlucky days have really really pad pay. 4.25 while driving, minimum wage while in store. If you don't get the nice shifts(you won't) you'll be in store at least half the time (minimum wage). And during the day, people tip much less. Prepare to get stiffed, while making 4.25 an hour. The hours you get are NEVER consistent, the days you work are never the same, they never let you go on time, sometimes way over somtimes way early, making 40 hours a week is impossible, unless people bail on shifts and then you have to work an extra 6-8 hours on that day.

    Advice to Management

    Nature of the buisness demands it be the way it is. They don't want to pay for useless employees, so someone's gota come in for a few hours, and leave for a few later and come back, or just have 2 people come in for 4 hours each day. It's not exactly their fault, and most of their managers are decent people so don't get me wrong! Not harshing on them at all.

    Pros

    When the store gets busy it can be a fun fast paced environment. Also able to work up to driver if you'd like.

    Cons

    Hours can be scarce. It is a pizza place so there aren't a ton of hours available if you are a part time employee.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing specific for management at this time.

    Pros

    Papa Johns has a fun atmosphere with great people. You'll spend most of your night in your car if the store is busy and you'll be doing various side work if there's no deliveries to take. minimum wage plus tips plus $1 for every order you deliver. i usually average anywhere from $16-$20/hr

    Cons

    The only major issue is wear and tear on your car. If you put a good set of tires on it and service it regularly it shouldn't be an issue for you.

    Advice to Management

    The advice to management is to train everyone on how to handle a busy store better. At points where we would get slammed the work would no longer feel fun and everything turned into work.
