    I have been working at Papa Gino's Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was able to work my way up to a General Manager positions. Much better growth than other companies I have worked for in the past. There is no favoritism, just a checkbox of things to complete before getting promoted. If you do the work, you will be promoted.

    Cons

    Many long time customers that can be needy but if you give them a smile they will forgive anything.

    I worked at Papa Gino's Holdings full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the locations have a loyal customer base that have been coming for years. You work with some great people and are able to train/develop them to meet the needs of your restaurant. The work environment in restaurant can be fun if you have the right people.

    Cons

    Constant change at the corporate level! Change in focus, policy and procedure is hard to keep up with. Messages are inconsistent and Poorly communicated. People are regarded as if they are replaceable yet almost every restaurant is struggling to staff. Training is rushed and people are often promoted before they are ready to handle the position. Equipment is old, outdated and inadequate for the amount of menu items.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want the company focus to be and stick with it. Invest in your people like you once used to and consider updating facilities.
