    I have been working at Sammy's Woodfired Pizza

    Pros

    the Del Mar location has some great comraderie in its coworkers, very team-work oriented atmosphere, good tips as well.

    Cons

    Management changes frequently which can add a little chaos, but it is pretty easy to get adjusted to working under different types of personalities

  9.  

    Friendly coworkers, but not fabulous pay.

    I worked at Sammy's Woodfired Pizza part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A fun and upbeat place to work. All food is prepared for you... meaning no salad or dessert preparation. Love that! Very accomodating to time off needed, but you must find someone to cover your shift... many people are hired on as stand by to cover this.

    Cons

    Would frequently work a lunch shift and walk with 20 bucks, if lucky. The price of meals is pretty low, so it is often tough to get a high check. Popular with families.
