    I have been working at Papa John's part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. A lot of the stores are like a kind of family unit. The pay in my opinion is not like any other restaurant that comparable business type. If you put in the effort, you can learn a lot, especially if you have a good management core. If you work hard you will be successful. You can make a career out of it, and do VERY well.

    Cons

    If you are in a higher volume store, you will work hard. you will work with people sometimes that don't want to do their share and you have to take up the slack. Sometimes the goals for management are not necessarily realistic, but you understand what they want.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to make personnel decisions on desperation. Praise your team when they do something right. Show them the correct way when they do something wrong. Team development does not stop after they have finished the monthly training. Don't have a team member do something you are not willing to do yourself. Lead by example.

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for while in school. Flexible hours, great friendly environment that made working there fun! Free food at times

    Cons

    Pay but it's papa johns can't really expect too much! Some members of management! Working on super bowl Sunday and big game days

    Advice to Management

    I would say management need to chill and realize it's just papa johns! Some of them act like its the end all be all! Be more understanding to the fact that most teenagers that work there are just working there to get some funds while in school.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is easy, you can listen to your music while driving, make nice tips...take cash home that night, and don't have to spend much time with individual customers or your boss

    -if you are a good worker, management will take notice and may offer you to explore moving up in the company
    -Papa John is becoming a meme

    Cons

    sometimes things can be a rush, sometimes customers won't tip even if you deliver good service

    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.

    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.
