Fun work environment, but few opportunities.
Pros: fun work and coworkers.
Cons: no tips, rarely raises, no benefits, and no free food.
I've worked at Papa Murphy's for over 3 years. Over the course of these three years I've learned about leadership, teamwork, and being able to have fun AND work. Some downsides to this job are 1) there are few opportunities for raises. The ownership rarely allows raises. In my three years working there with a class of certification to be a supervisor, I went from 7.25-7.85 and that's before I took the class. I was promised a raise after the class along with other supervisors and none of us have gotten anything. 2) Management: it depends on every store, but they are sort of similar. I've gone through 6 managers in 3 years. Management will promise you raises, but it takes sometimes up to 7 months to see them through. Also, they are bad about listening to feedback from the employees. 3) It is a business where many employees come and go. Papa Murphy's hires a lot of young workers, many still in high school or right out of; which means a lot of the employees are just passing through. (a little extra money on the side, saving for college). The work itself is fun. Working as a team is a good lesson in life. It's high energy, busy work, and good company.
