    I have been working at Papa John's full-time

    Pros

    Other than free food its a resume builder. Because being a shift leader here I'm also expected to be an electrician, plumber, peacekeeper, babysitter, customer service rep, and miracle worker.

    Cons

    See all that stuff you're expected to be ready to do? Yeah go ahead and do that for basically pennies. Plus long hours on your feet making every food product that comes out of the store, terrible upper management that cares more about the company's numbers than they do your mental health, a joke of a healthcare package that's actually worse than nothing, and all of the other 50,000 things you're responsible for on a daily basis and expected to do for a dollar or two more than minimum wage.

    Pros

    It was relatively easy to climb to store manager with good work ethic and basic professionalism
