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

Pros

Fairly typical restaurant atmosphere nestled somewhere between fast food and fine dining. Good pizza.

Cons

The only cons would be were one to end up working with annoying co-workers, as is the case with most any job.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees; sometimes, by way of being 'in the trenches', they just may have a worthy idea.

    I worked at Pizza Hut full-time

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, Easy to get (unpaid) time off, most management is approachable, job is fairly easy for most major positions. Despite the list of cons below, it's not a bad company. Drivers make decent money during football season (especially Cowboys games), make little money during summer. Spring is a mix.

    Cons

    It's very business oriented. What I mean is that everything will be done to make sure the bottom line is met. That means it is hard to get full time hours thanks to the new health care requirements, and the desire to have a large number of part time employees instead of a lesser number of full time. Average Pay for a "Inside Team Member" is $7.25, and for a Driver it is $4.50 on the road, $7.25 off the road, with about $0.95-1.07 a delivery for gas (most drivers break even on gas, but this does nothing for maintenance. Shift Leaders get paid just a bit more than team members, but not as much as some other restaurant chains.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management will visit stores on a regular basis, but most give fluff or "business speak" to employees that don't even pass a basic "sniff test". Being more honest and transparent to your staff when you visit will prevent some of the trash talk the average staff member does once your leave. Explaining to us from a business point of view and at least being honest will help many staff members have respect for you, even if we don't like the decisions. There's nothing worse than being told to your face that it's good for your paychecks when it actually means less pay or hours.

    I have been working at Pizza Hut full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company wants to give customers a great experience and good product. Hires a diverse crew. Offers good benefits to Assistant level and above.

    Cons

    Has extraordinary expectations of employees for only minimum wage. No benefits for part-time employees. New products do very poorly because employees can never get behind them.

    Advice to Management

    Raise your prices. Your customers will pay them and goals will be easier to attain. When 10 years ago the price of a Large 1-topping pizza was $13.49 and now a Large 3-topping is $12 when the cost of all things have risen....isn't there something wrong with this picture? Especially since labor budgets, Food cost targets, and sales goals all stay the same.
