    I have been working at Papa John's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendships, Good hours... if you’re full time, experience with all types of customers, great employee discount.

    Cons

    Very stressful sometimes, making sure everything runs smoothly, sometimes it makes me want to rip my hair out.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and don’t bad mouth them behind their backs just because they did something wrong one time.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. I could see this being very good if you're in High School or straight out of high school.
    Tips (delivery) can be decent, depending on the area.
    Freedom while on the road. (not couped in a building all day/night)

    Cons

    Base pay is horrid and even worse when you're on the road. (delivering)
    Management very unprofessional and poor in general.
    Morals lacking in general.
    Uncomfortable work environment. (managers liked to throw tantrums or talk negatively about subordinates in front and behind backs)
    No benefits and few options to be full time. (most people, especially drivers are part-time)

    Advice to Management

    A relaxed environment is fine, especially since this is just a pizza place. However, there should be a level of professionalism to an extent.
    Pay is laughable but I guess at a job like that, it's to be expected to an extent.
