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

    Pros

    Free and discounted pizza, great relationships built through work, easy to learn everything needed to run basics of the store.

    Cons

    Thorough cleaning requirements daily, such as wiping down everything and mopping, managers cycle through fairly quickly, changing menu and difficult customers

    Advice to Management

    Stop finding more excuses for heavy discounts

    I worked at Papa John's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Team work environment; Immediate success from a very busy night such as a Friday night, which is the busiest time of the week

    Cons

    Long hours for the GM and above store level managers when employees call in sick or quit at the last minute

    Advice to Management

    Provide as many tools as possible to help GM's hire employees since turnover is so high. Directors of Operations should make themselves available to help out GM when necessary even if it is helping with production on the weekend.
