Not the worst place to work, definitely not the best.
Restaurant General Manager (Former Employee) – Prince George, BC – 24 December 2017
Although there were many opportunities to advance, the people who make such decisions are more likely to give it to a friend or family member over someone with experience, as was the problem which led to my leaving a position in management. The owner hired his sister who refused to do any actual work and this was common knowledge, and the higher-ups refused to intervene for the good of the restaurant, even after they started losing money due to her "customer service". Their store is now failing, and she still works there. As a company they don't seem to care if you win or lose because they got paid their franchise fees.
CUSTOMER SERVICE - CASHIER - PIZZA MAKER (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 4 November 2017
It was wonderful to say the least... On top of that the food is great, they have great prices and the customers that came in to my particular store loved the service. We always tried to make everyone feel at home. It was like a big family! Loved working here!
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 November 2017
Nice and small restaurant to run, and the staff members were great to work with. A typical day would be opening up the restaurant and setting up the appropriate items for the day-to-day business. As a store manager, it was my duty to manage and train new staff. It was a great experience and made strong growth on my part.
Pizza Maker/Cashier (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 31 August 2017
I usually worked between 4.30-8.30pm on every weekend evening. The pizza shop became really busy from 5 pm till my shift was off. I learned how to work effectivity under large pressure and still smile to customers and patience even though I'm really tired already. The hardest part of this job is how to keep your brain clear without forgetting things under high pressure and also try not the get burnt by the oven. The most enjoyable part is I can make the pizza I like, but not on the menu. I planned still work in papa John after my summer vacation, but a large fire took the store away.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 29 June 2017
I learned a lot at Papa Johns, however the management was absolutely terrible and did not care at all about the employees or their work conditions. The customers were not treated well and the website always received complaints and no changes were made.
Team/Shift Leader (Current Employee) – London, ON – 6 June 2017

Customer Service (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 16 May 2017
This store have a nice and clean working environment. I feel very confortable to work in this place. I have learned how to make better looking pizza at here. Also I strart to focus on dealing with each customer to make them happy and willing to come back again. I have improved lots of communication skills over phone calls, and it is quite interresting to negotiated prices with customers. In my point of view, the hardest part of this job is to deal with unhappy customers.The most enjoyable part of the job is answering a big order over the phone and during that moment, I feel joyful becaue I wish our sells is going up. So everyone will happy.
Horrible management and horrible hours with very little salary boost
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 May 2017
It's a really good job to start off with, but with how hard they push you to be perfect on the first day of work is kind of ridiculous, my coworkers and i were constantly threatened to lose out jobs if we made a simple mistake like adding one too many pepperonis. the only good thing about the job were the coworkers, besides the manager and the overtime salary
