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

    Pros

    There's nothing really that I can think of as a "pro" to this job, save perhaps the fact that you got a single serving free pizza for lunch and tips could be decent at times.

    Cons

    The management was terrible, there was no compensation for use of your personal vehicle, the pay was too low, the tips could be lacking and the training process was pitiable.

    Advice to Management

    Consider better training for employees and management.
