Assistant Manager (Former Employee), El Dorado, AR – September 17, 2014
Pros: advancement in job and discounted pizza
Cons: the busines closed
I enjoyed making the pizza very much. When advanced into management, it was very easy. I learned a lot and enjoyed every minute of it. Working with the public was enjoyable, as was working with the other staff. We really pulled together to always have fun, yet productive shifts. I was sad the restaurant closed, as I truly loved working there.
This was a very fun place to where the majority of people were working toward the same things as me.
Waitress 30hrs per week (Former Employee), Conway, AR – July 24, 2014
A typical day at Pizza Inn included waiting on my assigned tables, taking to go orders, helping people at the register after they had finished their meals, cleaning my assigned seating area as well as the bar and waitress stations. The management wasn't bad, as with any job some were better than others but I never had a problem with all of the managers. – more... I loved my coworkers they were people I could've talked to forever and never gotten sick of! The hardest part of the job was the double shifts but I requested them so there's really no room to complain there. They people were deffiently the most enjoyable part of the job in terms of my coworkers and our customers. – less

Co manager/ Waitress (Former Employee), Mountain View, AR – June 7, 2014
Pros: it was really laid back, and we all felt like family there
Cons: sometimes it was hard to balance school and that job
A typical day working at Pizza Inn was that I would come in and clock in and make sure that everything was cleaned and ready to go before I would let the other waitresses go, I would then began taking tables and getting the people what they wanted. I would put in orders then go back and help cook them when I had time. If my other manager did not have – more... time to answer the phone or cash people out I would do that as well. I learned so much by working here, just getting a feel for people and learning how to work a register along with taking orders. My workers were all so amazing and we all really did feel like a family, of course we had some workers come and go but the ones that were there for awhile we all became really close and always had a good time with each other, rather we were at work or outside of it. The hardest part of my job were just those days when you had really rude customers and having to deal with helping to run the store and making sure those people leave happy were sometimes stressful. There were so many things that were enjoyable about my job, the people I worked with, the people that came into the restaurant, and even just cleaning up at the end of the day. I really had a amazing time working at this job! – less
Food Prep/Salad Bar (Current Employee), Greenwood, MS – March 6, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: too much gossip
Pizza Inn is an excellent place to work for someone who is looking for part time work and going to school. The drive was long and tiring but the work itself was very enjoyable. My tasks were preset and could be done in a couple of hours. The management team was somewhat lacking, and the co-workers had no sense of job urgency. There was a lot of talking – more... and trashing of other team members and managers discussed personal business with other employees. – less
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – March 3, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: everything else
Preparation of food, assisting customers, cleaning, answering phones. I learned Nothing. Management was very poor absolutely no structure. My co-workers were lazy and rude. Going to work in general was the hardest part of my job. The food by far was the best part.
This job helped me focus on tackling multiple tasks at once as well as learning how to satisfy several customers at the same time.
Server (Former Employee), Elizabethton, TN – February 21, 2014
Pros: very satisfying, great pay, friendly co-workers
Cons: management, no benefits
I would typically focus most of my time on waiting my tables and always being sure that my customers had what they needed. In the spare time I would clean my tables, help the workers in the back as well as the other servers when assistance was needed. I learned the true value of customer satisfaction and how much hard work can pay off both individually – more... and for the company as a whole. My management team at the time was slightly lazy, but would help if it were greatly needed. Their main job was the supervision of the restaurant as a whole. My co-workers and I got along incredibly well and could always ask each other for help at anytime and for anything. The hardest part of this job was the occasional period of an overwhelming amount of work to do and the stress that came along with it. However, the most enjoyable part of this job regularly came after the period of overwhelming work, when satisfaction of a job well done set in. It was incredibly enjoyable when all of the customers were satisfied and a direct relation in that was visible in my compensation. – less
Waitress (Former Employee), 1000 N. Greer Blvd. Pittsburg, Texas – February 19, 2014
Typical day at work includes a little bit of everything once you get the hang of how everything runs. From waiting tables working the drive thru and register, answering calls, washing dishes, making pizzas, re-filling the buffet bar, interacting with customers and even cleaning. Most days are very busy but it's all worth it.
Waitress (Former Employee), Conway, SC – February 3, 2014
Pros: wrk double get free lunch, the customers
Cons: not enough hours in a shift
I want to be at a place where you can work your way up. Somewhere I could see myself there for a very long time. not a 3 hours sift a day job where I am struggling to take care of my 2 kids. that's what Ive been doing for a whole year. I loved this job but cant afford to stay. I would come in start my shift wait on customers, but never really that busy. – more... So within 2 hours of the shift we have already been cut from the floor and then side work would been given. – less
Waitress (Former Employee), Mountain View, AR – January 27, 2014
Pros: free lunches and nice people
Cons: no benifits
A typical day at work would be taking drink orders and making sure customers are satisfied. I would also be taking buffet requests and refilling drinks. At the end of the night I would be sweeping and putting up chairs in the areas I was assigned, and cleaning bathrooms or the salad bar. Also, I would help the dish washer put up the last of the dishes. – more... I learned customer service working at Pizza Inn. My co-workers were great and so were the managers, I loved working with them. The hardest part of the job would probably be cleaning the salad bar. I enjoyed learning new things and talking to the customers. – less
