    Pros

    Good for Student; they normally need evening and weekends. They can give you only 2 days a week or 6 days a week as your request. easy apply for no experience people. You will have a job history that. combination of sitting in a car and standing in a store. You may feel very easy.

    Cons

    $4/H on the trip. $8/H in store. $1.29 a trip. You just get a few tip sometime. Few tip mean bad days. employees are quitting.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, and easy job.

    Cons

    No benefits, and no annual/6 month/quarterly raises. Customers can be difficult on busier days.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to those that deserve it. Some workers have to pick up the slack because people can be lazy.

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

    Pros

    The only pro that I would say that I found in this job...is the location and hours. I was five minutes or less from this location, so it was easy getting to work. The hours also allowed me to work after school during the week. Weekly pay was also good, but I was not there enough to really see what my check would look like.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?? There are so many cons. First of all, I am in college for long hours. When I got this job, I was under the impression that they would be more understanding. But they were not. They fired me because I was a "no call" for two days, when I did call and make an effort to come in.
    Second, their restaurant is NASTY! I would walk in and see trash everywhere! I was appalled at what I saw, and was wondering why this location did not get a lower sanitation grade. Plus, people were eating things off of the make line WHILE MAKING PIZZAS. That's gross! I was not trained properly; I was just thrown in to the line without any other type of training. Coming straight from college (which is already overwhelming) to THAT didn't help me learn anything. I always left overwhelmed. And when I spoke to the manager about it, he didn't really help me. Instead, he said that I should "give it time".....how can I when I'm already struggling!?
    I would have given no stars if I could.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is...listen to your employees. Take the time to properly train your employees. And try to make the restaurant cleaner than it is. You have lost not only someone who was more than willing to work, but a customer!

    Pros

    They are extremely flexible with your schedule and the people there are nice and friendly. You catch on pretty quick and it is an easy job.

    Cons

    The pay is garbage. There is an employee that has worked there for 2 years and has never gotten a raise. Also the environment is bad as well.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe raise the pay rate to complement the amount of work that is put in.

    I worked at Papa John's (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place for young managers/owners to learn the pizza business and there is usually opportunities for career advancement. Also one of the most inexpensive for franchising (start up costs).

    Cons

    Manager pay and benefits are "so-so" until you advance past unit management. Bonus system is always changing.

    Advice to Management

    More job security and opportunities for advancement in corporate stores.

    U learn team work. Skill set like cleaning cooking, Counting how to communicate with customer & other people. I been there over ten year. It good when u have a good manager who been around a while.

    Cons

    Turn over rate crazy. So not so many bright light in the building including management. Every blue moon. Customer scamming always wanting food for free. Always over time never any raises. No breaks at all. And because some one decide to still mean no one in the buildings can eat. On a 8 hr+shift. no time, off no vacation. Overall don't care bought employee.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employee as well as break go by the rules papa John's made write up for a reason. Break on in the computer for a reason. Please don't overwhelmed your staff when ur staff is hungry, over work,or sleepy it can be dangerous for driver. Emplament team work.faspac and papa.
