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

    Pros

    No tip sharing. You get what you earn. You have days where tips are upwards of $20 an hour, and days where it’s below 10 an hour

    Cons

    You can certainly have days where tips are not great no matter what you do.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time

    Pros

    flexible hours, great tips, if you work at a franchise drivers make more $$ hourly plus tip, drivers do very little work compared to instore and make way more money, any position you work (expect for management, I did that for 2 years then left) is easy and decent money

    Cons

    late nights, wear on your car, GAS, everything smells like pizza all the time

    Advice to Management

    This is a high turnover field. You have a lot of teens and college age folks working for you. Remember that you are probably the first job they'll have. Be kind because if you invest in them, they'll invest in you.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, great team, easy to learn positions

    Cons

    Corporate is attempting to simplify procedures, but in actuality making day to day operations more tedious. Not to mention their messy/petty split from John.
