    I have been working at Papa John's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, family-like friendly staff, open to suggestions, best pay (I know bc I researched and plus I worked for another top three pizza chain for two years prior). (Papa johns actually tells customers over and over the delivery is not a tip) and they pay their drivers both gas and enough for wear and most tear of vehicles. (Depending on what u drive. For example drive a tractor trailer to deliver ur not getting tractor trailer gas prices lol)

    Cons

    Sometimes u need to speak up and say hey I need this or that but truly they do their best to ALWAYS address areas of concern and make you feel worth it. Anyone who doesn't play a good role, has bad attitude, doesn't usually get to work there. So smile 😊😊😊🚙🚕🚗

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Dedicated to fresh hot pizza with the finest ingredients is one thing, but truly, they are also highly dedicated to their customers and their employees. When they say join the Papa John's FAMILY, they mean it.

    Almost unlimited room for advancement, franchise opportunities and corporate controls to assure quality across the world.

    I have been working at Papa John's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good for a single individual or someone with a small family . It's good to get a food discount or even free if you feel like it . Make your own schedule in a way but you have to work at least 50 hours a week

    Cons

    Stressful , high turnover rate , too much to do with very little time , work 60+ hours a week at any given week just to run numbers or cut down on labor cost . Have to deal with customer complaints and reply within 24 hours . A lot of deadlines with very little time to do it . Also may have to do work at home like complete work schedules or customer complaints

    Advice to Management

    You can't look at numbers you have to be there to understand why things are ran the way they are . Need more labor hours and need to pay all employees more

    I have been working at Papa John's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I get paid daily as a driver, & also receive my check every week. My Gm works with my schedule and gives me time off when I request it. 50% discount on the menu.

    Cons

    You will run down your car if you deliver full time. It's always a good idea to set aside money for repairs just in case something happens and you can not work to make the money to fix it because you rely on your car to make money.

    Advice to Management

    I think drivers should be given a higher delivery reimbursement while delivering in high traffic times. Traffic slows us down and runs down gas.

    Pros

    Super busy restaurant. Decent tips off sheer volume of deliveries. Management was good. Pretty flexible on scheduling, if you needed hours there were always shifts to pick up.

    Cons

    Store is open very late on weekends. Huge delivery area also includes sketchy delivery areas alone at night where everyone knows you have cash on hand. Nothing against papa johns as any delivery driver knows robberies in the city are common.
