    Pros

    Great team work, progressive environment... management seems to really care about their employees and all workers collaborate to make Papa Murphy's better.. basically feels like a family working there!

    Cons

    There should be an incentive program for making a certain amount of sales, etc. Also add some benefits/plans for students who work there part time

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are choosing employees who enjoy working with the public and with others, and also who have worked in the food/retail industry before

    Pros

    No ovens, so during the summer, you aren't super hot inside. The store runs pretty well, and we get very few, if none at all, customer complaints.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little bit better. The owner is at liberty to choose how much their employees get paid, and most usually stick to the mandated minimum wage, even if they are able to pay a little more.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate a smooth work environment by scheduling as best as you can. Always have a manager/assistant/supervisor on site to avoid easy problems.

    Pros

    My crew members were nice and dependable and the regular faces of the customers always made shifts seem better.

    Cons

    Verbally abusive and delusional boss made the entire place feel like a hostile war zone and the pay was far less than i was initially offered on top of my hours being cut from 30-40 hours a week to less than 10

    Advice to Management

    Train your store owners to have decency and run psychological tests to see if they can handle being around and employing high school/ college age individuals and pay your employees more to get more out of them
