    Had some really great and talented managers and staff to work with , they were mostly looking for the great things that you were doing and supporting them.

    The upper management in Louisville and Orlando had NO clue how much we worked, they only relied on what others told them.. it was a dog eat dog world when it came to dealing with them

    listen to others before making rash decisions

    I worked at Papa John's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and location near campus were a plus for me. I attended school full-time and worked almost full-time. There were on the job perks such as a free pie every so often and half off our orders.

    Cons

    Pay was barely above minimum wage even after advancing to the shift runner position. Communication fluctuated based on who the GM was, and that position had a high turnover rate.
