    I have been working at Donatos Pizzeria part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are what make this an enjoyable place to work. The environment is relaxed, and the work is fun. The work with you and tailor your schedule to meet your needs.

    Cons

    There are absolutely no raises, ever. Not for six months, not for a year, not for outstanding work. There are promotions, however some of them do not even come with raises. They do not keep people long because of this, and the turnaround is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises for outstanding service and for commitment to the company. Your talent retention is horrific because of your refusal to grant raises even to great employees who have been with the company for years.

    I worked at Donatos Pizzeria full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to eat great food while you work there. It can be fun to work there sometimes, but it is also boring.

    Cons

    Management has gone down hill fast. They don't incentive people who have worked there for a long time to continue.

    I worked at Donatos Pizzeria part-time

    Pros

    Everyone was friendly and worked as a team. The management team was very hands on and were definitely team players.

    Cons

    Was new to the area so they were looking to hire often. Wasn't an ideal place for a college student because they always needed people but they didn't have room to schedule students during breaks.
