Driver (Current Employee), Paris, ON – October 7, 2013
Pros: discount on food items
Cons: want more shifts
Typical Day at Domino's.
I get to work and some days are busy then others. When the store is busy I am on the road driving a lot. I really like when the store is busy because then I am busy and the night goes fast. When the deliveries slow down I am either helping with dishes or cleaning the store.
I have worked for Domino's Pizza for almost two months – more... now and I learned a lot about how to run a pizza store. I learned how to answer the phones and take peoples orders and use the computer system we have.
At Domino's Pizza the management is awesome. The father and son that own the Domino's Pizza, I could not ask for two better bosses.
My Co Workers are very nice, very helpful and very team oriented. All the workers together to get the job done.
The hardest part of the job I would have to say is that on a Friday night when we are so busy with deliveries and we don't have enough mobile debit machines and run out of hot bags to keep the food items warm and we have to make the deliveries but we have to wait for these items and we cant get to the customer in time and we cannot meet our 15 minute or less delivery time. I want to keep our customers happy,.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I work with everyone works as a team to get the job done and meet the customer needs. I also enjoy driving because I get to meet the customers and know that they are very happy with our product and delivery service. I enjoy seeing a happy customer and knowing that we made them happy and gave them a very good experience and they will come back to Domino's in the future. – less
Customer Service Respondent (Former Employee), Buena Park, CA – September 24, 2013
I would come into the store and instantly you can tell the environment is happy. Everyone had to take orders over the phone and learn how to make pizzas at an accelerated rate because this is a fast paced job. This job definitely teaches people how to be open and take charge of situations. My whole experience here was great.
Pizza Maker, Order Taker (Current Employee), Tuscany, Calgary – August 10, 2013
Pros: free pizzas, off early when it is not busy, flexible
Cons: hard work for not enough pay, little benefits
I believe I have a good job for a student. But as expenses become more and more and money becomes more of a factor I believe it is time to advance into something better then a pizza place. The people I work with are really fun. They are all easy to talk to and be fun around. But at the end at the day when rush is over. I am stuck at to do all the work – more... by myself such as cleaning all the dishes, trays, tables, sweeping, taking garbage and recycling out as well as making orders as they come every weekend. I do understand that it is my job but sometimes when I want to leave it is hard to do so if I have to do all this work with no help. I believe that manager is lazy and I just want to go some where with a little bit more equality and I'll enjoy more. With pay always being the main goal. – less

Shift Runner/Call Service Representative (Current Employee), Cambridge, ON – May 1, 2013
Pros: friendly co-workers.
Cons: don't get enough hours.
Can work anything from a hectic shift to a slow one. Hours vary and aren't regular. Learned how to manage other co-workers, keep track of inventory, phone skills, and motivational skills. The hardest part of the job is staying calm during busy rush shifts, and working with slow employees. The most enjoyable part of the shift is working with friendly – more... people, and having flexible shifts. – less

Pros: after an 8 hour shift a free pizza.
Cons: may not work the day you come in
i remember working in saskatoon, i would help out on the make line for the pizza, take orders over the phone and in person i would also upsell. i didnt like my wage because in saskatoon the minimum wage is lower. my favourite coworker was the assistant manager at the time, he now is store manager, he had helped me through every wall i hit in the work – more... place and was patient with me. – less
General Manager (Former Employee), canada – April 8, 2013
Pros: free pizza
Cons: see below.
Working for a pizza company at any level outside of delivery driver is the worst thing you could make a person do.
lots of high stress, long hours for low pay. generally working under selfish franchisees or managers who only care about their own issues, usually using any and all excuses to not do their own work then blaming you for it.
long un-paid – more... hours under false ruses and other corporate tricks to keep you working hard for less money and no benefits.
hardest part of the job was relying on less the optimal staff as no sane person ends up in a pizza store for life. generally relying on thieves and degenerates to keep the store open, and all for minimum wage. even as general manager you barely break entry level wages in most other job sectors.
if you or a family member is working as a pizza store manager, do them a favour and get them fired, it is the best thing you could do for them. – less
Pizza Maker (Current Employee), Trenton, ON – April 5, 2013
Pros: social interaction
Cons: not enough hours.
A typical day at Domino's is fun very iinteractive with people. What i have enjoyed most at Domino's is I'm always learning i do not go a day without learning something new. My coworkers are great it is such a relaxed environment and we all share the same goal, to be the best. The hardest part of my job was learning all the coupons we use quite a few, – more... so it makes it very hard to memorize it all, but not impossible. The most enjoyable thing a Domino's is just to interact with the people and get to spend a few minutes taking time to show everyone they are special. – less
Shift Supervisor/Pizza Chef (Former Employee), Hamilton, ON – January 30, 2013
Fast paced, I had learned to prepare food and serve customers and I managed my own shifts seeing how I was the only one there most of the time. the hardest part of the job was dealing with drunk people that would come in from the street from bars from around the area. The most enjoyable part about the job was getting to meet a lot of different people – more... from all over the city and the world. – less
