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

    Pros

    It's a job.
    Flexible Hours.
    Taking a management position typically means taking a huge pay cut, however good opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    In store pay is minimum wage, when you go out on a delivery it drops to $4.25 an hour.
    Raises only apply to in store pay.
    401k is pushed on you hard, but it is one of the worst in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to make some changes to employee benefits. Raises should apply to in store and on the road pay. Change your 401k.

    I worked at Papa John's (More than a year)

    Pros

    The money itself wasn't bad but that's because of tips. I was on the road, could listen to music and go at my own pace when it wasn't busy.

    Cons

    You rely on customers to be able to pay your bills. Papa John's only pays you a small amount for the gas you use. When you're on the road, you get $4.25 per hour. Unless you could find something else, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    If management cared about the employees at all, things would go a lot smoother.

    Pros

    You get free pizza, some of the people you work with are nice, they work with your school schedule but it's really good for high schoolers

    Cons

    You get bad hours and you don't get any break. The management sucked and you get below minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Please you need to check on the store manager, and don't forget where you started from too

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers were hard workers and worked with me as a team. We communicated well and when there was an issue with a customer, usually we could handle it and fix it.

    Cons

    The boss' management style always had me walking on egg shells. I couldn't tell if he was in a bad mood due to his sarcasm and when he got mad, he got very mad. He would yell, throw pizzas (into the trash) and almost broke a chair. A customer once commented on his attitude as being a jerk and that (employees) shouldn't have to put up with that. This manager was eventually promoted to corporate which baffles me.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to work in food, be prepared for people to make mistakes and know how to handle your anger and stress even when the store is busy.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people I worked with and I for the most part enjoyed the work. Throwing out the dough was definitely the best option of the jobs in the store.

    Cons

    It was too busy and the only times they would schedule me to work were on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Advice to Management

    It was a corporate store and the management did not have the right incentives to run a quality store besides when a corporate checkup was coming.
