    I worked at Little Caesar's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fed during most shifts. Coworkers were generally likeable.

    Cons

    Uncaring Management - I worked at a franchised location. The owners of the location were a mother and son. Neither of them were very pleasant or appreciative of the crew members. But the mother was particularly rude and disrespectful to most of the employees. Several people quit because of her during my time there. On one occasion, I contacted my direct supervisor to call out of a shift due to food poisoning. This supervisor evidently passed this information on to the aforementioned co-owner(the mother), as our store was understaffed and so she had to fill in for my shift. This apparently upset her so much that she wrote me up, and demanded a doctors note. I did not learn of this until I returned for my next scheduled shift, (by which I was already better). The writeup removed me from the schedule entirely effective immediately (so I had come to work just to be sent back home) in addition to the demand for a doctor's note. I hadn't gone to a doctor - food poisoning is easily recognized and self treatable. The owner did not seem to care, but also did not ever give me hours again nor inform me whether or not I was terminated, despite many efforts to contact management to look into these concerns. Unfortunately the owners refused to share their contact info with anyone but the managers, thus calling the store was my only hope. However, I was always told by the manager on duty that they were not present and that they did not now If I had been fired, but that they would request the owners contact me. This never happened. It felt that I was being deliberately ignored rather than simply firing me. This wasted about a month of my time that I could've spent seeking a new job. I wish I had simply gone ahead and started looking. I hate having to explain this situation when potential employers want to know why I left my last job.

    Stressful - Feeling of being stuck either rushing all my work such that quality suffers, or get yelled at for being too slow if you take time to do things correctly. Despite all my work to improve speed and quality, I never was properly shown appreciation for what I did. A simple 'good job' after handling a dinner rush would have made a world of difference.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that those given leading roles treat employees with the respect they deserve. Be available for contact with your workers.

    I worked at Little Caesar's part-time

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, not a totally ugly uniform, courteous co-workers.

    Cons

    Whole system is too fast, entire routine had to be learned in first hour and a half, I just got tired and bored and decided to find other work.

    Advice to Management

    Find another career too, maybe in turning those places into completely automated joints, like the old "automat" restaurants. It is demeaning to use people to act like little speeded-up system-processing machines. Although I know that is still what most "work" feels like these days.
