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

    Pros

    I like the customer base and the people I worked with. Pizzas were made from freshest ingredients so I didn't have to pretend to like the food.

    Cons

    Management gets away with a lot and they want the most amount of labor for the least amount of money.

    Advice to Management

    Better training would be nice.

    I worked at Papa John's part-time

    Pros

    I would say the work environment at the store I was at was pretty good. The management at the store was competent (for the most part), and the people I worked with were pretty chill. Also, some free pizza and tips are a nice bonus. Note that the work environment varies widely from store to store, though; knew some other stores in the area that were pretty bad.

    Cons

    A few coworkers had problems that management didn't deal with, late night work hours, and -eh- pay. One major problem was the over-obsession with sales & inventory numbers (measured in many different, confusing ways) to the point that it was ridiculous. Also, several required activities related to maintaining those numbers wasted A LOT of time and decreased productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Stop punishing stores for not meeting quotas for ALL the numbers tracked & reduce the number of redundant activities stores must complete. Add the ability to look up the phone numbers of other stores on the maps.

    Pros

    Some of the best people I've ever met!

    Cons

    Upper management talks about caring for people but actions don't reflect it. Team members ideas are not considered.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your team members or you may lose them.
