    I have been working at Papa John's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers. A lot of good customers make things a lot easier. I am appreciated by my bosses and am told quite frequently.

    Cons

    There are a lot of customers that just want things for free and will make your life hell to get it.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to pay more to those who work hard. It's not fair to work twice as hard as another coworker for 25 extra cents and hour

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

    Fast paced, really good for a first job, I learned a lot, manager and coworkers were very nice and helped me a lot.

    Pros

    Good tips if you can drive

    Cons

    Only 5.35 a hour while on road where as other delivery jobs are a straight 9 an hour, shift is a ton of work for little pay, other companies start higher in wages, similar pay with similar companies have no responsibilities, promised raises slow to arrive if at all

    Pros

    Easy work AND easy money

    Cons

    Management uses you as much or as little they need. No full-time. Over staff shifts then cut according to sales so you may not make anything if its slow.

    I worked at Papa John's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Advancement opportunities. Flexible schedule. Pizza. You get paid weekly. Will work around school and other jobs. Very team oriented.

    Cons

    Flexible schedule also means different hours weekly. Weekends can be brutal. Some go home jobs suck like dishes. A bad manager can bring down a team. High turnover in staff.

    Advice to Management

    Papa John (Schneider) is awesome in my book.

    Pros

    none, it is a mediocre job.

    Cons

    low pay, stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers more money hourly, we do too much to only be paid 7.35.

    Pros

    Compensation (tips), met some awesome people, easy job

    Cons

    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
