I have been working at Papa Murphys part-time (Less than a year)
Costumer Service experience, good people to work with. Very easy job, good first job. Gained experience on phone and register, and working in a fast pace environment.
No hours (2-3 days a week), bad & VERY unprofessional management, they schedule too few people on our busiest nights, makes it hectic on weekend evenings when you're trying to close.

50% discount, some free pizzas/ cookie dough if they are expired or customer mistakes, can be a laid-back atmosphere depending on the manager, but also might not be because of the corporate vibe.
This place is great for high school students to pick up 70 bucks a week.
Corporate thinks as though you are a cog in it's piston, ie you have no soul and you are replaceable at any time. This chain makes a good product but they expanded and got too big for their britches. Government food stamp program drives possibly around 50% of their business in some stores. That means your tax dollars and not-so-well-educated customers.
Barely any opportunities for full time positions. Team leaders make pennies more than regular crew even though a lot is expected out of them.
Advice to Management
Truly care about your employees (and their lives), even more so than your sales numbers; your sales numbers will be better than they would have been if you had cared about your numbers more than your people.

-For a pizza place, it's nice to close early and still have a bit of the evening to yourself
-No oven means the temperature inside the store is nice
-Fairly flexible scheduling for high school and college students
-Easy to keep the store clean
-Monthly store meetings are positive for morale and communication
-Dedication to accurate product and quality
-Meetings every week for managers (Seems excessive. Sometimes, just an email would have been fine)
-Lack of training
-Low wages/inconsistent raises
-Extreme favoritism from the owners and area manager
-No verbal feedback for job performance
-Inconsistent business structure/operation
-Food truck constantly not bringing items that show up on an invoice and ruin your inventory
-Absurd labor goals
-Bonuses and paid time off never explained (bonuses were also months behind for managers)
Advice to Management
-Focus more on the business and less on looking through paperwork. Prep lists and coupons from every day of the week should not take precedent over customer service
-Less busy work. You don't need to put your initials on a sheet of paper every half hour when you clean the make line and sweep the floor.
-Labor structure. Don't increase the work load (i.e. mandatory supervisor packets) while you decrease the labor usage (if someone is constantly a half hour early, make your schedule accordingly for this.)
-Feedback (whether positive or negative) should be given to management
-Wages were acceptable in most cases, but what rate to hire at and when raises were to be given were never thoroughly explained and very inconsistent
Hours were flexible which was great for a college student.
Pay isn't great. Didn't have benefits.

If you work hard management notices.
You're never going to get rich. Very limited hours unless you make your way into management.

Autonomy and supportive company. Company is still growing so opportunities for career growth.
Management can have long hours but if you like working and interacting with customers then it really isn't a con.
Advice to Management
None, owners and everyone was supportive, helpful, and takes pride in what they do.

Good constant job and easy ability to move up
Employee turn over rate was very high and retraining all the time was very hard

Good work environment - easy to get a hold of.
Management sometimes gets out of hand I think.
