Supervisor (Former Employee), Dieppe, NB – July 14, 2014
Pros: free lunches and tips.
Cons: always night shift and cant take breaks in restaurant business.
Having to come to work in a face-past environment. Training new employees and dealing with the delivery services. The hardest part of the job was telling people what to do, but it's something I learnt to handle well. Management could be confusing, working with young students and some car problems can occur in the delivery business, so we had a lot of – more... people on call. – less
Food Service Supervisor (Current Employee), Lethbridge, AB – June 26, 2014
Pros: 50 percent off when staffs order food.
Cons: when the communication systems are down.
My typical day starts as opening the store in the morning, counting float cash register, switch all the machines for daily operation, preparing the mis-en plus such as food preps. check any planned ahead order for the day. My co-workers are very hard working and friendly to work with. The hardest part of the day would be when sometimes one has to work – more... alone in the afternoon and there might be a rush and the person has cope up all alone. The most enjoyable part is the rush hour where orders keeps coming, phones are continuously ringing to place orders, customers are lining up inside the store to order or to pick up their pizza orders. It is a quite challenging situation and time pass by quickly. – less

Assistant General Manager (Former Employee), Richmond, VA, USA – April 10, 2014
The job was very demanding, sometimes satisfyingly so, other times, it wore you out. Generally worked with wonderful people. The hardest part was balancing the numbers due to unpredictable business. Also, managers were on call at all hours. Learned a lot of valuable skills there and met many wonderful people.
I enjoy my job a lot at Papa John's. I've been working at the Kerrville, Texas location for 8 months and have loved every bit of it. A typical workday for me involves doing just about every position in the store and I love that. I wouldn't want to do the same thing every single day. I've learned how to talk to different people and react to certain situations. – more... The management there is awesome as well as my co-workers. I honestly wouldn't change anything. The hardest part about my job is that I usually don't have a day off to relax and a lot of the time I'm working from the time the store opens until about an hour after we close. I don't have a most enjoyable part about it because I'm excited to go to work everyday. – less
