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

    Pros

    Awesome work culture, very laid back as long as you do your job. The work isn't too hard and as a driver the pay wan't bad after tips. Not everyone tips well but for every stiff theres someone who give you a nice one so it evens out. And at my store my coworkers were all awesome people so I actually didn't mind going to work.

    Cons

    You're not going to get rich and the (former) CEO sucks. Also puts lots of miles on your car.

    Advice to Management

    Give the delivery fee to the drivers or lower it so people are more inclined to tip their drivers.
