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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, most of the shift is spent out of sight of management

    Cons

    Trash wages supplemented only tips. You're relying on the generosity of an increasingly penny-pinching society to make even minimum wage, since the pay on the road is just 4.50 an hour. No benefits for non-fulltimers, obviously, and lol if you're gonna get fulltime without slaving for a year or more.

    Advice to Management

    Get right with the gods, cause there's no mercy for the likes of ye beyond the veil.

    Management was a little too lax, a lot of people were lazy, understaffed so often ended up working longer than expected (during night shift) also while maintaining another full-time job, no holidays off no super bowl off

    Advice to Management

    Be more serious

    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.

    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!
