Its a ok place to work but overall I dont think they advance based on ability or performance. Its based on who you know.
Team Leader / Customer Service (Current Employee), Middletown, OHOctober 14, 2014
Pros: half off your order
Cons: the pay, advancement opportunities
I actually enjoyed my job until I got bored with it. There's no room for growth or advancement based on your ability its who you know. I enjoy customer service, being challenged, making a difference and seeing progress.

not a bad job
Delivery Driver/Cashier (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHOctober 13, 2014
Pros: i had a wonderful general manager, and district manager. its a good starter job, you get to be out on the road most of the day.
Cons: not much compensation, use of your own vehicle, having to answer the phone and place orders between deliveries.
I liked working here. It was my first job working as a delivery driver. my coworkers and managers were nice. They train you. I just got tired of having to answer the phone and wasn't getting good enough tips in the neighborhood I was working in.

Great place for a highschool student
Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Covington, GAOctober 13, 2014
Pros: free pizza, tips
Cons: horrible pay, damage to car
The job was horrible and gave little to no hours. We were only paid $4.25 an hour and weren't given enough hours. The most hours we were allowed to work per week were 39. There was no overtime pay and they made you work holidays for little to nothing

Too Demanding
Delivery Driver/Cashier (Former Employee), Dayton, OHOctober 12, 2014
Pros: half-priced food
Cons: too demanding
This company hires you for a position. Suddenly, you are performing every task in the store, with no raise in pay. Hired as delivery driver. Next thing you know, I have to open the store, close the store, make bank deposits, take orders over the telephone, make pizzas and other hot foods, catch the pizzas and other hot food at end of the oven, fold – more... boxes, make deliveries, run cash register, take orders in the store, and stock the coolers. All of this, and then some. Definitely not worth the 7 bucks an hour. – less

Fast Pace restaurant
Order Taker and Cashier (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 10, 2014
Pros: half off product and serving others
Cons: non-helpful management
Papa John's was initially a friendly place to work. After my first week there I noticed the co-workers talked behind each others backs and were overall negative. They don't work with those whom have issues with learning and would often raise their voice.There were no benefits and changed around the work schedule on last minute. I am hoping this is different – more... for their other establishments. – less

Fun environment to work in.
Shift Manager (Current Employee), AndoverOctober 9, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: no specified breaks
Papa John's is a fun and enjoyable place to work. You go to work to provide dinner to people who are entertaining guests or for busy nights for families who are involved in extracurricular activities. The hardest part of the job is the long shifts you may be required to work due to schedules being based off of sales volume. Being a part of the management – more... team, it can get stressful but it is also a way to learn effective leadership. It was a huge stepping stone as well as a great way to practice my management degree through college with flexible schedules. – less

stressful or boring
Driver (Former Employee), Mount Holly, NJOctober 9, 2014
How the day goes depends on what day it is, if its a busy day it will be stressful, if it is an off day it will be boring with nothing to do. management changed, many times while i was there, as did my coworkers. the hardest part of the job was keeping up on orders when it got busy. the most enjoyable part of the job was as a driver you didn't stay – more... stationary the whole time there. – less

Great for a restaurant-loving worker
General Manager (Former Employee), Evansville, INOctober 8, 2014
The days were pretty exhausting, but the pay made it worth while more often than not. It was often hard to work five 12-hour shifts a week, but the management and staff made it much easier. I learned a lot about working as a team and coordinating a "work machine" during my employment.

Simple Job
Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Lake Elsinore, CAOctober 7, 2014
My experience with this company is that it is a simple enough job but my current location is not the best run. I enjoy my coworkers and I enjoy the people I work for but the experience has not been the best. I feel it isn't the best organized situation and I don't think the company has the best policy system for compensation for driver expenses.

Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXOctober 7, 2014
Pros: half off pizza
Cons: limited advancement
It was a lot of fun working here. I truly enjoyed it. The co workers, the customers, what we had to do during the day… make pizzas, answer phones, deliver pizzas, slap dough. One of the most fun things about this job is slapping dough.
