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

    Pros

    Good if you're in a busy store working prime hours (5-10), you want as many runs as possible. People are usually pretty nice and tip good, I could make around $15/hr usually. Your co-workers don't really have much impact on you (they don't have many opportunities to make you mad).

    Cons

    If you get mornings you make way less money and work harder prepping all the food. Job does little for your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Give morning drivers minimum wage until their first run.
