I work a 8-10 hour shift on my feet hosting birthday parties to birthday parties. I meet and greet new families, take orders & help my party parents with anything they need. I do all the running around for them. I learn how to deal with any annoyed rude stressed or happy parents always have a good attitude towards any and do whatever I can for them. Good management but after working there after 2 years almost 3 i only have received a 20 cent raise. great co workers most enjoyable part is throughout my job i have better and better communication skills
no breaks, no lunch, eat as you go. only a 20 cent raise after working there for 2 years
GAME ROOM MEMBER (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – November 20, 2015
Got tons of overtime, got along with absolutely everyone. Management is kind, helpful and understanding. Although I quit after 2 months, they would like to hire me back. Reason why I left was just because of the interference with studying for school.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Avondale, AZ – May 10, 2016
It's a good company, it just depends who your district manager is. It is a very fun environment but and do love the company but for being there as long as I have I don't feel like I'm compensated for it.
BUSSER (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX 79925 – March 31, 2016
I loved working here. the people became so close to me we became like a mini family. working there was so much fun. it was always the same thing but the fact that it was such an awesome environment made it great.
Team Member/Cashier (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – May 25, 2014
The location I was at was in dire need of employees and overworked night closers. They were wonderfully flexible with my class schedule but the courses I was taking required so much of my time to study which was occupied by work. Majority of the team members were teenagers barely getting into the gist of things so I would help train them and teach them skills about time management, communication, etc. It felt as though I had taken a huge step back because I was basically teaching someone else to do their job with no raise though I was promised one for the longest time. I was recognized once as Employee of the Month which felt like a great accomplishment. I learned that most of the guests took pizza a little too seriously and would complain about any little thing, just because they knew they could receive free food.
free food sometimes, great friendships, awesome managers
hardly any breaks, dead during most days during the week
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Tucson, Az – September 26, 2015
A typical day was crowd because of kids running around. I learned to make both parents and their children happy. The management was okay, very laidback. The coworkers did not really communicate as much as I hoped especially while training. The hardest part of the job was getting out of my comfort zone, the most enjoyable part was seeing the children smile.
BUSSER (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 9, 2015
Clocked in and cleaned dishes, restocked items, bussed tables, cleaned restrooms, provided customer service. Learned to better talk with and put up with customers. Managers usually were willing to work around my school life, but at times were very stubborn. For example, wrote me up for not showing up despite me telling them I had an exam and would not show up if they left me on the schedule. Too many druggie co-workers. All they did was talk about weed, alcohol, and pills. Hardest part of the job over the 14 months was feeling unappreciated. Often covered for co-workers on their days off while most co-workers refused to cover me, managers refused to give me hours despite me coming in nearly every time was asked to (never did that thing that people do where they pretend they didn't have their phone with them when managers/co-workers called), both managers and co-workers often refused to do me favors despite me staying sometimes to help after off the clock. Most enjoyable part of this job was being able to wash dishes and just listen to my music.
Radio with mp3 jack in the dish-room, fairly-easy job
Terrible pay for un-rewarding job, terrible managers, mostly terrible co-workers
Cashier Trainer (Former Employee) – National City, CA – October 3, 2015
I've worked in this job about 9 years ago, and from what I could remember, the most enjoyable part of the job was the closing part where each closers have a department to clean. Since I am a cashier trainer, I usually clean the dinner area, such as wiping tables, emptying the trash, sweeping or vacuuming the carpet, and going in and on top of the kids slide to clean it. Another part of this job that I enjoyed was covering people, because I've got to experience being the cook, the dishwasher, the game room attendant, and hostess for kids birthday parties. It gave me the opportunity to really have the feel of working in a different area and different responsibility.
Team Member (Former Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – November 25, 2015
Great place to work, great food, and so many great days. managers were very nice and understanding of many things. Learned to be fast and reliable. everyone on the team was helpful and knowledgeable in what they did at wok. best day at work is when we were the busiest and we had parties to tend to.
Free lunches, 20% family discount
One general manager was very mean, he was th reason for my resignation
General Crew Member (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – April 3, 2015
I would go into work, get assigned a position & get right to it, didn't mind how busy it was, just got the job done quick & effectively. I learned how to talk to a customer the right way & understood not every customer was the same. The management at Peter Piper's was debatable, good, in-between, bad managers. Co-workers here, came & went but for the most part we all worked as a team. The hardest part of the job here when another co-worker got lazy and never did their job. The most enjoyable part of this job was going into work knowing I could talk to everyone as a family and not a crew.
I learned a lot during my time there at Peter Piper. learned to handle money for the first time, was the foundation for my good communication skills. Management was not too good with hours unfortunately. the hardest part of the job was the maintenance on the arcade machines and cleaning them as well.
General Crew (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 28, 2015
Employees were not typically very motivated, so a lot of my work load consisted of cleaning up other people's messes or helping them with their job. Teamwork was essential to get through the day, especially on the weekends when it wasn't uncommon to have upwards of 30 parties in a day. This job worked really well around school schedules and was good for high schoolers.
Great job to pay bills and wait for your dream job to come.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Tucson, az – August 9, 2012
Local owned thats all i have to say!! You have to deal with owners and with all their family that works there. Its like having 10 to 15 people telling you different things that changes every week. No advancement and if you do for horrible pay no actual great benefits like you would get at a corprate job. nothing is enjoyable, waiting for a call every week on a job that will be worth leaving this place and make sure not to come back!
cook (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – June 13, 2015
not much to say never enough tasks to fill the day. and management struggles to know what they want from the workers if done early can finish many other tasks on own before managers give you more fun projects. store close at 10 sometimes there till 1-2am because managers having trouble with inventory or their jobs while employees are just sitting around done talking to each other
Multiple (Current Employee) – Sierra Vista, AZ – July 14, 2015
Great place for first job, easy. Management not the best, but overall a great fun, and easy job. The busy days can be very stressful, but it's quite an enjoyment to be able to multitask to get things done and make guests leave happy.
Kitchen Employee, Management Trainee (Former Employee) – EL Paso, Texas – July 13, 2015
Great place to make friends, go in and do your work is all that was really asked of the employees. Not too difficult of a job to do and as long as you followed everything by the rules you should not be in trouble.
