    I have been working at Papa John's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible for needed days off. - However expect to work beyond end of scheduled shift if it is busy.

    Cons

    As an opener I prep food for the day and keep very busy when not on the road. However, I do work with numerous people who are lazy, hide out using their cell phones, etc. The hardest workers are known but seldom rewarded except by scheduling.

    - Tips on credit cards are taxed.
    - Only $1.25 per delivery and it is taxed. Store charges customer $1.99 for a delivery.
    - Low $4.25/hr pay when on deliveries.
    - New employees constantly
    - Horrible and antiquated computer order taking system
    - Inconsistent pricing for customers

    The amount of money to be made is less than when I've worked for privately owned pizza places. Sliding pay is not sufficient.

    On average - I work 10 hours a day - I drive 120 miles daily - have 20 deliveries - make $60 in tips - get $25 in fuel reimbursement - Am paid $4.25/hr for roughly 6 hours, $7.25/hr for 4 hours. This equals out to $140 over 10 hours but before gasoline costs. With the stop and go fuel mileage is poor so figure 7+ gallons at $3.50/gal = $25. So for ten hours of work post gas costs it is $115 HOWEVER the tips are taxed if credit card tips (90% of the tips are c/c), the per delivery is taxed, the hourly is taxed.

    Compare this income to other privately owned pizza places as a driver. Previously I would never be taxed on any tips, make $2.00 cash daily per delivery for gas, make $7.25/hr driving or not. HUGE difference.

    Advice to Management

    Properly reward drivers. Pay us $7.25/hr on or off the road (used to be this way in the past). Pay us $2 per delivery (especially since you tax this amount). The best drivers and workers do not stay because of the low pay when compared with other pizza places (even some other corporate pizza places).
