    I worked at Papa Murphys

    Pros

    I love that its fast paced and is very rewarding when you are able to give the costumers the satisfaction they deserve. You are alaws able to have a sense of self worth.

    Cons

    Because they are a minimum wage employer, there is really no room for higher positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more interactive with employees and our costumers.

    I worked at Papa Murphys full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Making fresh pizza with veggies that are cut and prepped right at the store.

    Cons

    Friday nights are the busiest. You will never have a break after 3 o'clock.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make friends with your employees. It's a small area there, and having enjoyment with your co-workers will cause them to work better.

    Pros

    Great part time job for college students, flexible hours, discount, decent pay, easy to get promoted if you want to

    poor management and human resources, they are very good at hiring incompetent employees and the decent ones have to make up for it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire managers who know how to treat employees with respect and hire reliable employees to ensure that the restaurant is never understaffed.

    I have been working at Papa Murphys full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Papa Murphy's during college and it was an overall good experience. It only paid minimum wage, but it was my first job and the hours were extremely flexible. When I transferred universities out of the area, the store welcomed me back for university breaks and the staff had a very good overall morale.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover in staff because management tends to only hire younger people. Some former management likes to delegate most of the workload onto other employees without providing more compensation and that can be frustrating. I worked full time and overtime most weeks, but was never appropriately compensated for it. Also, management tended to "look the other way" with large issues with specific employees or employee relationships. With the industry being about customer service, you cannot afford to have such rude employees, regardless of their circumstances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more thoughtful when it comes to hiring new employees. Also, reward the hard work of your really hard working employees.

    Pros

    Once you prove yourself you get better hours,

    Owners are real nice, as is corporate. Open late /close early.

    Cons

    If you're an opener, plan on going all day without eating unless you bring something before.

    min wage for managerial work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give keyholders a raise, even if its just a small one, would help.
