    Pros

    There are not a great number of reasons why anyone should work here. As a manager you eat for free.

    Cons

    Extensive hours are required. Upper Management does not care about you. Your schedule is always changing, week to week. The benefits are nearly non-existant.

    Advice to Management

    If you want someone to run a property that is worth millions, have the decency to pay them a reasonable salary.

    Pros

    Free food, inside of the mall. Not too many pros i can think of.

    Cons

    Horrible upper managment, in correct training, no health dept procedures in place or followed, pest infestation, pizzas sit out all day and served.

    Advice to Management

    They did not send me to a training store, mice and roaches all over, pizza would get dryed out, old, and still served and considered "fresh", money issues. District operators need to be more involved with stores, besides calling everyday asking why sales suck, when no type of lsm is in place or being executed. They say you will work 55 hours plus, the plus meaning open to close every shift you work. Get there at 830/9, leave at 10/1030.

    Pros

    Growing family owned company with excellent products. Strong desire to build the culture. Excellent co-workers that care about success at the restaurants.

    Cons

    Some old fashioned processes still in play.

    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.

    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.


  8. 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.

    Pros

    Honestly it's great helping people puts a smile in their face.

    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.
