Supervisor (Former Employee) – Westbank, BC – 22 February 2018
A typical day on the job includes opening the store, food prep and greeting customers and taking orders. I learnt exceptional leadership skills and was able to learn some very good and effective problem solving skills by management. Staff was always friendly and eager to work together.
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
It's a good place to work.I have learnt how to deal with different types of customer,had difficult time too. I started working for the firm in November 2016 and the got promoted in may 2017.This is when I realized there is a lot of scopes to grow.
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
Cashier, Baker (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 20 April 2017
There aren't many duties to do when it isn't busy there, alot of the staff gets used to sitting around, and that molded them into employees like that. A lot of staff ended up very lazy, and no longer took pride in their work
Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 1 April 2017
Work was enjoyable & fast paced, I was always kept busy. Management was humorous and easy to get along with, friendly staff - helpful and eager to teach. The hardest part was finishing up the closing dishes at a reasonable hour, overall a great place to work.
Supervisor/Key Holder/Auditor/Driver (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 26 March 2017
Great place to work. Having never made a pizza in my life prior, it was a bit of a struggle to learn everything in three shifts. But I ended up receiving a raise from the District Manager after only 5 shifts on the job. It got a bit stressful at times with trying to manage one of the busiest locations in Canada on a Friday night or Saturday night after bars closed, or during university events.
Salary, room for advancement, fun place to work, free pizza (if your management)
First job was pretty fun , Very Understanding , Supportive , and truly a team
Pizza Maker/Kitchen Assistant (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 14 March 2017
The job was fun , I enjoyed working there for the time I did , I did all the job duties so I got to learn everything about working at a pizza place other than delivery because I don't have my license. I would say this is great job for students looking for part time jobs . Pizza Places would probably be the best suggestion for students/teenagers but Papa Johns was truly the best job experience I had besides WEST Inc. .
Great team member's, Awesome Superviser's, Amazing food, Good deals, and 50% discount for all employees
Cutting onions, scraping off old pizza crust on buckets before washing, ( Took enough strength), Lunch time for students, and holidays were super busy it was almost panicing !!
Shift Lead (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 12 March 2017
This job requires employees to operate the store on their own, including order taking, making pizzas, oven tending, cleaning, and daily cash deposits. It also requires employees to solve customer complaints and any issues that arise within the work place.
Food Prep (Former Employee) – Belleville, ON – 10 February 2017
Amount of shifts were minimal, around 3 hour shifts for 4 days a week at minimum wage was not satisfactory, however the food was perfect, the salary was not up to par, would recommend another place to work.
Cook (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 26 January 2017
The shifts would be five hour long and all I was allowed to do was top pizza. I was not given the poper chance to learn the other aspects of the job, because it was not perfect the first time I did it. The management was poor, and the pay dates constantly changed.
General Manager/ Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 13 January 2017
Papa John's was an amazing experience throughout the time I was working there. I started off at the bottom of the chain and quickly moved up into the GM position with the help of my fellow managers and owners. I gained a tremendous amount of confidence in this role though some times were extremely stressful and hard to get through. I'd rate the experience a 10/10 due to the amazing people I met throughout my employment and the rate at which I was able to advance.
Steady Advancement, Free Meals, Good Hours
Very Stressful, HIgh Pace Work Environment, High Turnover
