The manager at the time I worked there was wonderful. The company itself puts alot pressure on manager and staff which takes enjoyment away from the job.

Working for papa Murphy's is a fun experience so long as you make the best of it. It's hard to mess up and easy to learn. It's a very good job for someone with no prior work experience.
Pros
Deals and discounts for friends and family
Cons
Working for too long can make your back sore from being bent over a counter

It was honest work,
Overall the work was good, you didn't drive yourself into the ground nor felt you did nothing, The workload was fair.

The management was too much of a coin-flip. I felt no security there.

I have been working at Papa Murphy’s got the past 13 years. The workplace culture has been amazing for all these years even with change in management. This location is closing which is why I am looking for a new job.

A typical day is taking customers orders and processing the transaction if you are on till. If you are not on till you can expect to be putting toppings on pizza and following the guided measurements for the pizzas. You can also expect to answer phone calls for pizza orders.
I learned how to use a industrial cheese grater and how to sheet pizza dough.

Management was very friendly and hand on, they were always checking in to make sure thing were running smoothly.

The hardest part of the job was lifting some of the equipment so we can could clean it.

The most enjoyable part of the job was sampling new pizzas so we could tell customers about the flavor and make recommendations.
Pros
Would sometimes get free pizza or deserts
Cons
very short shifts

A great place to work! Manager, as well as owner, take great care in their employees. A typical day consists of helping customers and preparing pizzas to their specifications. Everyone follows a daily list that helps us get everything done that we need to get done. I've learned many skills with prep work that has helped me in my everyday life at home.
Pros
Discount of food, learning environment, friendly staff
Cons
Very little room for a raise

Both owners made me feel very unsafe. They also had horrible hygiene and did not wash their hands before handling food. I learned that many customers were unimpressed with their behaviour. I felt very uncomfortable in this workplace, some coworkers did not make me feel welcome at all. The hardest part of this job was having my boss learn how to operate machinery while he was trying to teach me.
Cons
No break.

Papa Murphy's was a fun, friendly, and organized place to work. I got great customer service and sales experience while I worked there and the management was great. It was nice being able to serve customers healthy, real ingredients and be honest about the high quality of the ingredients. I've worked at some food places/restaurants that did not follow health or cleanliness rules that I would not eat at if I was not currently working or once I quit. Papa Murphy's was not one of those places, it was always clean and safe!
Pros
Friendly atmosphere

Papa Murphy's was an awful place to work. They refused to pay me so I had to contact employment standards in order to get any pay cheques. They treated me like I was a five year old who did not understand English and were generally very rude.

Papa Murphie's had a great job atmosphere. We had to multitask many times due to how busy it got but we worked great as a team. Every day I had a new task (cashier, pizza maker or closing the store) I enjoyed all of them.
