    I worked at Papa Gino's Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Several good systems in place to allow easy management
    Good training resources even if at times a bit redundant. It helps get people on the same page.
    Good district managers
    Some freedom in each restaurant

    Cons

    Corporate seems to be throwing ideas at the wall hoping to improve things. Change can be good but not in the way they are doing it
    They have the corporate attitude that all people are replaceable- even if true you should treat your people with respect.
    Slowly removing quality of food in order to save costs or to try and simplify prep.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to having quality ingredients. Too much focus on trying to save labor or marginal costs at the expense of quality is hurting business
    Treat your teams with respect and make them feel like they are an important part of the company, not expendable resources

    Pros

    Great people working to serve great food. Excellent training from experienced professionals. Ok pay for the hours you work. Overall an ok place to work.

    48 hour weeks for salary pay, getting screamed at by upset and impatient guests, and often running short handed.

    Train your team to work everywhere, negotiate for a pay rate that is higher than you wanted because you will get it if you have the experience.
