so so much work. Doing every single job possible in the store for minimum wage. extremely unfair pay with no benefits, no sick pay or holiday pay or even wage slips. not awful for a teenager as short shifts but so much stress and hard work for little benefit.
Pros
free pizza often
Cons
so much hard work for minimum wage

I’m currently in my first year at college. Fortunately, I don’t have much financial responsibility (bills). However £5 per hour for such a big company is not ideal. The job can be fun but the low pay rate is demotivating. On the weekends, and in the holidays, it gets a lot more busy than normal.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Pay

It’s a good first job but that’s about it, you can have a laugh and can enjoy it when you’re working with the right people but every staff member is paid unfairly, everyone starts on minimum wage but you could learn absolutely everything there is to know about the store and have a couple of quid increased on your hourly rate but then there’s other staff that do minimal that will be on a higher wage than you just because they’re older, also smokers are prioritised on “breaks”.
Pros
Free pizza if you work the full 11 hours
Cons
Majority of the time it’s short shifts, no set breaks, treated unfairly as well as being paid unfairly, do not receive payslips.

Honestly the worst mistake you can make is working for papa Johns Caerphilly. You can ask anyone who has worked there they will all tell you the same.
Pros
Free food after 6 hours
Cons
Don’t pay you!

There is no job security, they will use you until they need you and will get rid of you for minimal reason As soon as they get more staff.The pay is barely minimum wage and the drivers don’t even get that considering the fact that delivery drivers has to use their own car and pay for petrol.My Overall experience is that this is one of the worst place to work for and waste of time.
Pros
Free meal
Cons
No job job security

The job itself wasn’t good pay but it was enjoyable because of the colleagues I had and the team leader was very kind. If you need urgent money and live in London which is expensive, I wouldn’t recommend working here.

You’ll get called in hours before your shift starts saying you have to get there ASAP. The pay is rubbish and isn’t worth the headache. Your getting paid peanuts for a job that your using your own car and being told to speed up and get the delivery done quicker. Don’t recommend and work there!

It can get very busy especially at weekends, working here can be fun however your hours are not guaranteed and can be sent early often which can get annoying.
Pros

Cons

I’ll start off by addressing it’s a franchise, the owners don’t Care about their employees and won’t hand out correct uniform and expect you to pay for it out your own wages with trousers / shoes, good luck getting a payslip unless you threaten to take them to acas/hmrc, if you show you’re keen to learn... yes, you’ll get promoted and once promoted you’ll be screwed over by a ridiculously low wage increase and unsupportive management
Pros
Free pizza (if you mark it as wastage)
Cons
Management, lack of payslips, job security, wages, closing by yourself with not a lot of help from other employees

NEVER WORK HERE!!! PLEASE!! It's honestly ridiculous. Staff are unbearably rude and the managers lack enough care. The place is filthy and no one cares if there are literal bugs on pre-slapped pizza's. Isn't that horrible? Would never recommend you work here, poor salary, poor customer service, just poor everything to be fair.
Pros
Easy job to get
Cons
It's horrible

The staff and boss were nice. We made a good team and worked with each other quite effectively. The salary wasn't great but it was good considering I was at the Uni at the same time.

Papa Johns is a fun and enjoyable place to work at, and the only downside is the zero-hour contract, so I get less hours than I would want to. I would have liked 9 hours a day, but am only getting 5-6, sometimes less.
Pros
Free Pizza
Cons
Zero-Hour Contract
