    Former Employee - Delivery Driver 

    I worked at Papa John's full-time

    Pros

    Easy job, get to listen to music/ radio while working.

    Cons

    Papa John's charges outrageous for everything from delivery service to sauce cups, but all the money goes to corporate. Drivers make less the minimum wage, and they pay them less than 1/3 of what they collect for the delivery fee each delivery. That whole dollar is also credited as their gas compensation.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    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.

    Current Employee - Insider 

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

    Pros

    relaxed management, flexible schedule, and great coworkers. For a minimum wage job I think this is the best you can get.

    Cons

    minimum wage, for drivers it will take a huge toll on your vehicle, and of course not all customers will be pleasant.
