Productive and fun place to work
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Myrtle Beach, SCAugust 15, 2014
Pros: work experience, management experience
Cons: inconsistent hours
The day began at 9 am on the management side, opening the restaurant and starting the paperwork. The customers began to place orders at 10:30. From this point we prepared food and beverages. I would manage the delivery times to ensure the product quality. The closing manager would always show up around five and we would count money. Upon closing we – more... would make sure there were no last minute customers who weren't satisfied and then we would begin to clean the store and make a deposit to the bank. – less

The job place is pretty fast pace
Dispatcher (Current Employee), Brooklyn, N.Y.August 14, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: no healthcare, no sick time
Requires a working car and a lot of movement. Co-workers and management are high spirited and always going. The hardest part of the job is lifting the pizzas and constant driving. The most enjoyable is being out of the business for a few minutes.

Wish it wasn't a minimum wage job
Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Ann Arbor, MIAugust 12, 2014
Pros: skills developed, discounted food, work-life balance, tips paid daily
Cons: wages, some people may treat you as inferior for whatever reason
Great place to work for extra cash if you have a good location/delivery area

A typical day includes delivering orders, making orders, and secondary duties

Hardest part of the job is staying motivated after not getting tipped

Most enjoyable part of the job is making the delivery

PaPa johns pizza
Store Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bayamón, PRAugust 10, 2014
Its a job, you do your job and you get paid, no place is perfect but i did my job and i got paid every 2 weeks. As far as im concerned thats as good as it can get for me personally. Though I have to say i was rather surprised at how fast a worker went from a regular employee to assistant manager in a year or so. I personally got and offer for assistant – more... manager, but i was not interested in said position. So if you get a job at papa Johns youll get a chance at management, eventually, with some nifty perks. – less

General Manager (Former Employee), Henderson, KYAugust 9, 2014
I took over in august 2005 , the sales were low the staff was in disarray and most hated working there. I started managing by leading by example , with a smile and support everyone was needing. it took a few months firing and hiring positive attitudes. we increased our sales and customer service satisfaction by 35 % and was begged not to leave and I – more... shouldn't have...I had the perfect staff and we all respected each other... My biggest mistake was leaving there – less

Shift Leader (Former Employee), Tigard, ORAugust 8, 2014
Pros: up beat, fast, fun
Cons: i look for the bright side in all things
I managed the papa john's pizza in Tigard Oregon for a time. I loved my co workers and managers, we had a lot of fun, and got the job done. Learning how to make pizza from slapping the skin (tossing the dough) to finished with grace and speed was a really enjoyable experience. I grew and learned a lot about what it takes to manage a productive, happy, – more... healthy team of individuals in a work place under strict deadlines. We all shared in the responsibilities of taking the orders and making the pizzas. Making sure everyone was dressed to code and working in a timely manner was a part of my job. Getting the drivers out the door with the whole order and proper directions while continuing the order taking process and making the pizzas was my regular focus.

At the end of the night we would start clean up and inventory which some nights was quick, and other nights took a few hours. None the less all of the product would get counted, the store would get clean, the money would get counted and deposited, and we would all go home.

The days I worked at Papa John's Pizza were invaluable for every day was a unique experience, from my interactions with all of my friendly co workers who became my friends, to keeping a sincerely positive attitude with all of my interactions with costumers while adhering to a very up beat and quick work environment. – less

Okay place to work if money isn't an issue.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNAugust 7, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, lots of breaks, good wage(lots of deliveries)
Cons: low wage, lots of mileage
Papa John's is an okay place to work. Every day was kind of the same. Food preparations, folding boxes, putting inventory away, and delivering pizzas. You get lots of breaks if it isn't busy enough.

Poor Pay, Poor planning
Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Lake Oswego, ORAugust 6, 2014
Pros: cheap food
Cons: low pay, high out of pocket costs
Even for a delivery job Papa John's is a very low pay day. with less than half of a delivery charge going to a driver, you live and die by the tip. You can actually leave work with less money than you showed up with if you are unlucky with long delivery routes and low tips. This was a new franchise and the delivery radius was not clearly set, so the – more... boundaries would change shift to shift. – less

Lead Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Everett, WashingtonAugust 6, 2014
Pros: team member discounts, breaks
Cons: short breaks
It was a good working experience for me, its just that this was my first job working as a retail worker. I was fired because i was making too many mistakes and i was working slow. I was told to work only the weekends and only 4 hours a week, 2 hours a day. Not enough hours to fully fathom everything. Not a good fit for me. I plan to work as a cashier – more... for any company. – less

Delivery Driver/Customer Service (Former Employee), Havelock, NCAugust 5, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: hostile work environment, employees not held to the same standards
The store manager was very immature and unprofessional. She took personal interest in certain employees giving them more hours than the others regardless of how hard they worked. I am very disappointed with my work experience under this new manager. The previous manager was outstanding.

Delivery Driver (Current Employee), Covington, GAAugust 4, 2014
Pros: free pizza sometimes
Cons: the every day risk of being robbed
I would clock in and ask the manager what need to be done if there where no deliveries ready.
If there where no deliveries ready i would clean or fold boxes.
I learned about managing time.And also how to make pizza.
the coworkers are okay when they're doing there jobs.
I would say the hardest part of the job is ,that sometimes people do not tip you – more... for delivering there food to them.
my favorite part of the job is being able to be to myself when i make deliveries.
I like being able to listen to my music on the way to my destination. – less
