OK place to work at; could be better
Crew/in training for supervisor (Current Employee), Vancouver, BC, CanadaJanuary 16, 2013
Pros: free expired food at closing, awesome co-workers, radio/ipod dock
Cons: absolutely no breaks, hours vary, owners aren't that nice
I started as crew, and was trained on landing the first day during dinner rush. As it was my first job, I've never experienced anything so fast. Two days go by, and I was trained on cash. That was easy for me, as I'm outgoing and have a people-person attitude. I made sure that whatever I was doing, was to the best of my ability. Then, the shift co-ordinator – more... trained me how to do duties up front, and general cleaning.

The part I hate about working is that your hours go by bread sales. If you don't sell enough bread, you don't get hours. Once the owners noticed my bread sales were 30%>, they stuck me on cash since the day I was trained and 2 weeks after, got "demoted" to 1st (we have 3 registers). It's just over 7 months and I'm still on 1st. I'm absolutely tired of it... doing the SAME thing 5 days a week. Restocking front counter, cleaning lobby, announcing orders. I never got trained on sheetouts/dress because I never work mornings. It's always either 3-4pm to start and 8-11pm end shift.

About almost a month ago, I asked the owners (after the guidance of my supervisor) to apply for the position of closing supervisor, since I never work mornings and I'm used to dinner rush/nights. So, they are training me to become so. There's only 6 of us working there; the assistant manager, supervisor, me, and 3 crew members. And we're all between 16-22 years old.

My co-workers, we've become all close to each other since there's only 6 of us. The owners usually leave between 5 and 7 and there's only 2-3 people on shift depending on the bread sales the week before, so for at least a couple hours, me, the assistant manager and/or supervisor, and IF a crew is there, can chill and talk. There used to be 9 of us, but it's quite easy to lose your job. If you miss 3 shifts, you're gone and there's nothing you can do about it unless you have a doctor's note stating you couldn't work.

I don't see the use of working minimum wage, and working my butt off, even the owners saying I'm their best cashier (in other words, making them the most money on till) to get a .60c raise for closing supervisor, when you do 50% more than what crew does. It's ridiculous.

Mind you, I'm the only girl since I started, and the rest are guys except for the owner's wife who's the only one allowed to do dress unless they're not there and it's either the AM/supervisor only. The owners don't like hiring girls because "apparently they don't have nearly enough work effort/initiative as guys and don't want to get their hands dirty." I'm stuck on 1st cash, and everyone else is doing sheetouts/landing/dishes. It gets boring when it's slow, so we have a cleaning list we have to get done. I finish lobby duties when it's slow in 20 minutes when it should take me around an hour. So I end up doing dishes, pan wipes, or landing until closing duties start at 6:30/7. It's so slow, he's only giving hours to the AM, supervisor, and myself who's in CS training. Our crew only gets 1-3 shifts a week when we get 5-6.

Another thing is that I've never had a break since I started. I'm up on my feet from when I leave my house to when I get back, and that can be between 8-12 hours a day depending on shift. Your back hurts so bad, especially when bending to do dishes. But since you're 1st, you can never sit down for more than a minute without someone walking in.

The owners can be really rude sometimes, and especially when it comes to writing tickets, they can be stingy on how you write them up/how much you charge. If you screw up on one minor thing, they freak out. There's so many people who've quit because they didn't like the way the owners treated them, and I can understand where they are coming from. They're uptight about how much parmesan you use, and even fired someone for using too much (giving out too many parmesan packets/overusing for dressing breadsticks)... that's just ridiculous. We can listen to the radio, and it's pretty loud. It's the only thing that keeps us from slowing down our work, because when you clean/do dishes, you become bored if no one's talking and you're doing something repetitive. So you can focus on something and listen to music.

Overall, it's good for a first job, but don't stay there too long, because our supervisor's worked there for about a year and a half and he's saying that it's too long for him. You can only work there for so long before you can't deal with it anymore. It's too repetitive and the amount of work you put in isn't appreciated. If you just want something part-time to make some extra income, such as a high-school student or college student, you'd have to be a dependant or supported by someone/the government in order to have enough to comfortably live. If you don't, either look for 2 or apply for crew and hope for the best that you're chosen for management. And depending on how good you are at cash, they'll keep you for dinner rush or put you in the morning before shop opens so you don't go on register. – less

fun atmosphere where one can learn how raw dough is transformed to tasty pizzas
supervisor (Former Employee), vancouver, burnaby BCDecember 12, 2012
Pros: work/life balance is achievable with a positive atmosphere
Cons: lack of variety of new products the last 20 years
from customer service to product knowledge to costs of running a restaurant operation to developing teamwork to making each shift as productive as possible all contribute to the more enjoyable parts of the job ... training and trusting the co-workers to produce quality products add to the fun of the atmosphere ... the hardest part of the job would be – more... trying to increase the existing customer base ... – less

Productive ad Fun learning Experience
Customer Service (Former Employee), Campbell River, BCNovember 8, 2012
I had a great time working at Little Caesar. As a staff member I was entitled to as much time off as I wanted, and although the pay was minimal I enjoyed working there and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun learning experience. The hardest part was leaving my friends and co-workers at Little Caesars. I learned Customer service and kitchen – more... duties. Management was excellent and they have so much to offer. – less

Entertaining work doing something I loved
Crew Member (Former Employee), Whitby OntarioMay 29, 2012
Typically I would be opening, or closing the store five or 6 days a week. Daily I would take part in the preparation, and serving of the food. As well I would maintain the cleansliness of the restaurant both at my station and in general. Every Thursday I would unload and organize the invenotry of the next week. Little Caesars taught me how a small restaurant – more... is run, and since the dough and sauce is handmade my talent for food preparation also improved. I loved this job because it was doing something that I enjoy, for a company I have always admired and respected and while sometimes hours would be long and breaks would be few there was not much reason to complain. – less

Okay Job
Crew Member (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONMay 29, 2012
I loved the atmosphere of working in such a face paced environment, being able to bring in customers by being the mascot and also helping them place and make their orders. For the time I was there, I don't think my hard work was valued and under appreciated. I loved every part of this job also, from prepping the food to shaking the signs out side.

Easy work but may be extremely fast paced at times
Restaurant Crew Member (Former Employee), Port Saint Lucie, FLAugust 14, 2014
Simple work of taking orders and making pizza. I learned customer service skills. Management was polite but not driven in my location. Coworkers were young and had average work ethic. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with a fast pace. Most enjoyable part of the job was getting a discount on the food.

It was a productive and fun environment to work in.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 12, 2014
Pros: getting a promotion
Cons: not enough hours
A typical day would be getting there starting work right away and making sure all paper work was right and getting employees to do there job. I learn to manage and become responsible for a store. I was a asst.manager at the time so i got to learn a lot of great things from my former managers. The hardest part for me was getting my employees to come – more... in to work they were constantly calling off so it was very hard to get people to come in so we could have a successful shift for the day. The GM refuse to hire people so it was very hard. Over all i learn a lot from the job i was there for 5 years i learn to manage and work with others. I love managing and training people. Some of my crew members were excellent workers and it was enjoyable working with them and also working with customers was another great part of my job. I like making sure my customers would leave with great service. – less

Efficient Fast Paced Productivity.
Cashier (Former Employee), Flushing, MIAugust 12, 2014
Extremely fast paced productivity with proper preparation. As a former employee of this facility, I can say without doubt the strongest skills I learned included; multitasking, preparation, and focus. Given the slogan, "Hot-n-Ready" customers often enter and order multiple pizzas that are expected to be given to them at the end of the transaction. This – more... requires immense preparation and foresight. Especially when you have multiple customers ordering multiple items. In order to do this, multitasking is key. From the sauce to the toppings, all items need prep work before they reach the final product. Staying calm, collected, and focused ensures the product reaches the customer in a smooth and productive fashion. – less

Good job, Not so good people.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Canton, OHAugust 11, 2014
Pros: great experience
Cons: no appreciation, poor management
For the past year and 6 months I have put all I had into coming in work every single day. Started off low and slowly made my way to the Assistant Manager position. Everything would be great in that store except the GM had at least 6 of her immediate family working together. I'm all for family working together as long as you can keep it about work. They – more... would come in and not work, stand around, talk, I honestly felt like I was back in highschool. And for someone that was there everyday and busted my back for that store, the management and owner were very unappreciative of my work. Not just me, at least 3 other crew members also, that were of course not their family. As a company, the Little Ceasars franchise is awesome. As far as who these break off chains have running their stores is another question. Little Ceasars on 1901 Cleveland Ave Canton, OH NE – less
