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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, family-like friendly staff, open to suggestions, best pay (I know bc I researched and plus I worked for another top three pizza chain for two years prior). (Papa johns actually tells customers over and over the delivery is not a tip) and they pay their drivers both gas and enough for wear and most tear of vehicles. (Depending on what u drive. For example drive a tractor trailer to deliver ur not getting tractor trailer gas prices lol)

    Cons

    Sometimes u need to speak up and say hey I need this or that but truly they do their best to ALWAYS address areas of concern and make you feel worth it. Anyone who doesn't play a good role, has bad attitude, doesn't usually get to work there. So smile 😊😊😊🚙🚕🚗

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Dedicated to fresh hot pizza with the finest ingredients is one thing, but truly, they are also highly dedicated to their customers and their employees. When they say join the Papa John's FAMILY, they mean it.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time

    Pros

    As a cashier working in a college town, the tip money definitely made up for the minimum wage. And you get to eat the pizza sometimes, and there's opportunities to transfer to another location

    Cons

    Really long hours, you almost never get off at your scheduled time. Having to clean the store for closing

    Advice to Management

    be nice don't yell

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

    Pros

    VERY FLEXIBLE schedules, decent compensation around 12-14 an hour average for a delivery driver, minimum wage for an instore (production cook, cashier, order taker) and hourly management can make between 10-12 an hour.

    Cons

    If you like evening and weekend work not a bad gig at all! Sometimes I have some not so highly profitable delivery shifts however i just keep on telling myself that it will all average out and thus far it has!

    Advice to Management

    At this time I don't really have much to say. I work in a store that is well ran and the employees generally get along well with each other.
