Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 19 August 2018
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.
Discount of food, learning environment, friendly staff
Pizza Maker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 June 2018
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.
Prep (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 November 2017
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!
Pizza Maker (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 28 July 2017
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.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 1 November 2016
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.
Cashier/Food Handling Associate (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 1 May 2015
I was watched like a hawk 24/7 because of the lack of business this business received. Every task I was given was pedantic...it was a joke... I was treated very disrespectfully as well...overall I wouldn't recommend working here unless you are willing to do anything to make some money...warning: you may be given 2.5hr long shifts, because I know I was.
Crew member (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 July 2014
A typical day on the job would be making pizzas, prepping for the rush, and cleaning up. I have learned that it is critical to have a positive attitude towards costumers, and co-workers. The co-workers are always nice, easy to get along with, and friendly towards the costumers at all times. The management was incredible when I first started working there, but as new management came in, it was not the best environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the conversations you get to have with the costumers and staff.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 1 January 2014
A typical day is assembling pizzas and handling cash. I learnt how to make a pizza! Management changed when I was there, but I can not speak for the current management. CO-workers were always very friendly. The hardest part of the job was the downtime The most enjoyable was the discount
Pizza Maker / Dish Washer (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 15 April 2013
I got to work and depending on what I was schedualed for I would work cash, make pizza's, answer calls and wash dishs. I learned how to work in a real part time job. The manegment was awesome, I got along with manegmant well. My co-workers were always helpful and suportive as I worked. The hardest pat of the job were the VERY hungry customers on fridays(fridays were very packed) and the most enjoyable part working at the job were the co-workers (manegment and all)
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 14 January 2013
The job is easy enough, there's not much to it. Make pizza, wrap pizza, give pizza. But I find that, because, I'm on the younger spectrum of our employees, I do not get a fair amount of hours. Because of my job title, cashier, they only work me on weekends for short 3-4 hour shifts, which for a high school student of a single mother whom is trying to save up for a car and university, it's not cutting it. The main reason I've started applying for a secondary job, even at the age of sixteen, almost seventeen. I do not get any benefits or holidays, and neither do any of the other employees. Unless you're available everyday all day and old enough to operate the machinery, you are not valued as an employee at all.
friendly employees, close to home, easily accesible
