I worked at Pizza Hut part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Free food. Free drinks. Depends on how nice your manager is and how much that manager's manager is tightening thumbscrews about food expenditures.

If you are a driver, you spend a lot of time on the road away from the workplace- that means not interacting with customers or dealing with orders as much. It is one of the fun parts of the job.

I tended to wash dishes and do dough prep during down time. Both are activities where you can easily zone out and the time passes at a decent pace.

People who are either dragging along the bottom or at a crossroads in life work there. The former can be difficult to work with; the latter can be interesting.

Cons

The free food will make you fat.

You get a $2 dispatch fee, which many customers take to mean they don't need to tip you.

The job reinforces negative stereotypes about minorities not tipping- because sadly, they typically don't.

Your vehicle will suffer long term wear and tear that makes the job not worth it. And it will smell like pizza, not to you, but to everyone else who gets in your car.

Advice to Management

Dispatch fee increases based on how much is ordered or how far away you are. We are in the internet age with google maps and other things, this is definitely possible.

Company vehicles. NPC makes loads of money. It would not be hard to swing a company vehicle, or heck, at least some oil change coupons from the local auto shop or something.

    I worked at Pizza Hut part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There really are no pros to working this job.

    Cons

    I worked as a driver. Sounded good on paper, hourly plus tips, what could go wrong?.Everything. The pay is a joke. The driver has to use his/her own car, pay for the gas and upkeep of vehicle and then hope he or she are making enough tips to make it worthwhile because the paychecks will not even cover your rent. The pay is below minimum wage. Pressure on drivers to drive faster. Risky if you work at night, because of greater chances of being robbed. Keep away from the food industry.

    Advice to Management

    None because they are just as powerless.
