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

    Pros

    The job has great job security so there's little chance of getting fired unless you just don't do your job. With how busy the place gets you'll get plenty of hours.

    Cons

    Being a franchise, the owner is more involved, which in this case isn't good. The place is run poorly with terrible management and employees that don't care about the work they're doing.

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

    Pros

    The employee discount was decent (50% off)
    Some of the people were nice and I liked my manager
    You could move up to management if you wanted pretty easily

    Cons

    It's a fun job if you don't want to make money
    Sometimes you would net less than minimum wage after paying for gas and maintenance for your car, should be another lawsuit honestly
    Garbage benefits and terrible culture in corporate
    Still expected to work every holiday and when the weather was dangerous

    Advice to Management

    Make the higher ups pay employees a decent amount

    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

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

    Pros

    50% empoyee discount, everyone hates corporate and Papa John so that's good

    Cons

    The job is so stressful and heavy. I've become dehydrated and nearly blacked out a few times because the environment is not suitable. Also the company doesn't give you any breaks no matter what. Open - close? Nope, zero breaks. Also only making $4.50/hour to do this? Worst job I've why had. Thankfully I have a different full-time job I work as well that actually treats me decently. Papa John is a glorified slave owner

    Advice to Management

    At least call me a slave instead of "Pizza family". That would be some welcome honesty

    The people were really fun to work with, and you got a discount.

    I did not like being a delivery driver, I did not feel safe going out after 10 pm.
