I worked at Papa John's part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Ok pay if you hustle and have a knack for driving and finding things. The day shift can be laid back but you won't make a lot of loot. As a driver, hopefully you will be out of the store a lot and you won't have to deal with managers, co-workers.

Cons

At my franchise they stopped paying minimum wage + tips. When I left it was $4-5 an hour plus mileage plus tips. Back before the crash, those were the days! No delivery fee people thought went to the driver, gas was low.

You have to wear that dorky uniform of khakis and tennis shirt. You cannot have a beard.

Advice to Management

Instead of punishing employees for not upselling or whatever, give out some reward. Hell, it can be a plastic trophy or something. Employees respond a lot better and make you more money for positive reward, it's business psychology 101.

    I have been working at Papa John's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can be a fun working environment because of the people.
    Decent hours if you are manager or opening/closing delivery driver.
    Food benefits (lots of order mistakes).

    Cons

    You will only work about 2 to 4 hours (sometimes even less) each night through dinner rush.
    You need to be a either a manager or opening/closing driver to get decent hours. Dinner rush drivers also get less tips because there's so many other drivers on the clock and only so many deliveries and you will get stiffed often which makes those 2 to 4 hours you worked a bad experience.
    Fake schedules - You will get sent home early often because of "high labor costs" and be called in often on your day off as well as be called 30 minutes before your shift and told to not come in to work because of high labor cost. Managers will often work end up working by themselves or with very little help and pressured to meet numbers and get orders out on time.
    You will often run into lazy employees with no sense of teamwork or drive/initiative and who will often call out.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, let them work.
