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

    Pros

    This was my first job! I loved this company so much. They are super friendly and train you very proficiently. Goals are clear and the work environment is always fun. If you put in a lot, you will get a lot out! I was offered a raise after my first month for working with them.

    Cons

    You WILL smell like pizza! Plus, it is easy to gain weight being around the pizza at a discounted rate all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the friendly, helpful work place!

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

    Pros

    Working as a delivery driver for Papa John's is a great experience. The pro's of working their include: Great comrades, delicious pizza, decent pay, the smiles on peoples face when you show up with a tasty pizza, and for the most part you work alone.

    Cons

    Cons to working at Papa John's as a delivery driver include: dealing with upset customers, having to rush to get to the delivery point and back to the shop (you are timed) and getting stiffed on a tip.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to not time your drivers. This causes an unnecessary stress and I have seen it lead to employees driving reckless.
