Great food and atmosphere for customers, poor working conditions and lack of compensation/benefits for employees
Pros: 50% discount on select items
Cons: long shifts with constant standing, lifting.
Papa Murphy's overall is great, from a customer standpoint. Quality ingredients, quick service, clean store, and medium priced pizza and sides. From an employee stand point, it is mediocre. Similar to any other fast food place that is apart of a franchise, there are a lot of regulations, which quickly stifle any enjoyment that make come from the work place. Every person under the 2 managers, makes no more than 50 cents above minimum wage, despite how long you have been there, how experienced you have been or what skills you may have, seemingly. Every shift, you are on your feet, moving from one place to another, with only one break (10 minute break for 4 hour shift, or 30 minute break for 5+ hour shift). You are expected to make pizzas at a certain pace, expected to do a gigantic list of tasks every shift. I personally feel that the pay you receive for this work is too low to actually "compensate" you for the work you do. This seems to be the reason why everyone under the head manager has about 1.5 years of experience or less, with maybe 60% of the work force having less than 6 months of tenure there.
