    Pros

    The hours were good and the pay was fair. There was a solid system in place, even during a busy time the work was still manageable.

    Cons

    It was really busy at times and we were occasionally understaffed. Required to work double shifts at times, even when it was unscheduled.

    Advice to Management

    The management could do a better job with the scheduling. When the stores are busy step behind the line and help out the cooks and cashiers more. This could really boost the morale of the staff.

  2. It's a place to work.

    Pros

    My co-workers are awesome, and are some of the best people I've ever worked with. The job is easy enough and easy to learn. The only perk, other that the co-workers, is being able to snack while you're on the job. Its very easy to sneak food into the back and eat it really quick.

    Cons

    The people in management have very poor people and management skills. We just got a new general manager back in August and she is just now holding our first meeting. I came back to work this semester not knowing who she was. A lot of people just thought she was just another worker. That makes me not respect her as a manager. One of our supervisors could use some training in leadership and how to actually do work and not delegate everything that comes across his plate.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that we as students do not live to work here. We have school to worry about which is more important that this part time job at a pizza place. We get raises, but it is basically nothing. 5 cents per semester we work. Give us more and we will be more willing to stay on longer as an employee. At a certain point, the job becomes too much with such a low salary and with barely any growth to expect with it.

  3. Very bad. Worst job I ever had

    Pros

    It only makes good pizza. That's it.

    Cons

    I worked very long hours here and was devoted to it. Then, they made me work for an extremely long time, there was no breaks, and I just completely quit.

    Advice to Management

    Make the people who work here work less hours.

    The oven burns you! So be really careful with the pizza and your hand.

    Advice to Management

    My manager she's awesome we don't have a Gm yet but she does everything in her power to make things work! I really respect that of her! She's doing pretty good with going to school and having kid! I don't know how I could do it!

    Pros

    The only positive things there were the nice co workers and the free pizza (which we werent allow to have)

    Cons

    Mike Yousef, the general manager, has no clue what he is doing. He is only there because he is either friends with the owner or friends with the corporate management. He doesn't treat people like people. He treats them like animals and screams like a little baby when he doesn't get his way.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Yousef and start treating your employees better.

    No healthcare, and lazy employees.

    Try and hire people with a good ethnic background.

    Pros

    Tony, Billy, Alfred, and Marty are the greatest. Easygoing atmosphere, great food, great employees. I was sad to leave the place!

    Cons

    Long hours. It can get very busy at times. There's a very high attrition rate among employees. I would get my W2s late every single year.

    Advice to Management

    Consider closing some holidays. It's understandable to want to make the most amount of money possible in a given year, but if it's at the expense of your employees' Thanksgivings, you've got a recipe for poor team morale.

  10. Got me through pocket change in college

    Pros

    Liked people I worked with. Liked working with the majority of the public. Exciting to open new store and work in a high volume business.

    Cons

    Worked LOTS of hours. Standards of operations were not consistent. Bonus program tied to things that I had no control over. Labor kept to such low levels that it was impossible to service customers well

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent. Realize that employees make or break a company daily. Owners should let operators run the business.
