    I have been working at Papa John's part-time

    Pros

    No pros whatsoever in my eyes

    Cons

    I was promised a weekly payment.. What did I get? After 3 weeks of no pay, I finally get paid $2.00. After hours and hours of hard work and sweat, I get paid $2.00 in 3 weeks. The manager is a slacker, and when I got sick due to seasonal changes he threatens to fire me for not showing up for a few days (after I informed him that I was sick). Once I get my paycheck, I quit this job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your customers, we are people just like you.

    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.

    I have been working at Papa John's part-time

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    It's a pretty easy job. Not really all that stressful, and the job is rather enjoyable if you meet good people, which I have. Improves your sense of direction.

    Cons

    Expect overtime frequently - the longest overtime I've ever worked was almost 5 hours longer than scheduled, though that's an extreme case. The job is extremely demanding on your car.
