Dough Roller (Current Employee) – Lakeport, CA – September 29, 2016
Much like any fast food restaurant, Round Table pizza is easy work that can, at times, be frustrating, but never difficult. Having worked at two different locations, under two different franchisees, I can safely say that Round Table, despite their higher-than-average prices, has staying power and brand recognition; as long as you put a little effort into the job, you should have no trouble staying hired. Nights, weekends and holidays are a must for all employees, but otherwise getting a day off has never been difficult. You're not likely to get full time hours or benefits unless you make it to management, and I rarely saw management positions open. But if what you need is a side, temporary, or first job, RTP might be your best option.
Cook, Cashier, Food Prep, Delivery Driver. (Former Employee) – Kennewick, WA – September 8, 2016
I was in college while working there. and the scheduling was done to my favor which was great. A typical day of work was always a busy day. I had to work at a fast pace either making pizzas, running pizzas to tables, handling cash register, answering phones (English and Spanish), helping on dishes. Closing was always tough because we always raced to get done, sweeping the entire restaurant, mopping, vacuuming, and cleaning tables. I was a delivery driver before my car broke down. Del driver was good money because of tips. Coworkers were awesome because they were close, treating each other like family. I learned how to work hard and fast. I learned how to talk to people because I worked the cash register. I believe knowing how to talk to people is important for all jobs.
Job security, friendly coworkers, the work ethic learned
Great staff, awesome place to work, and vast opportunities to learn.
Supervisor in Training (Current Employee) – Rocklin, CA – October 6, 2015
A typical day includes hours of food preparation before opening which include, chopping vegetables, mixing dough and sauce, as well as rolling large amounts of dough through a machine in order to cut enough pizza skins for that day. While working at Round Table Pizza I have learned the ins and outs of daily operations of the restaurant. How often to put orders into our suppliers, the process of receiving and accounting for inventory, how to properly deliver a consistent product to customers, and how to deliver a standard of professionalism when serving customers, whether over the phone or in person. Management and coworkers consists of people who are the best at what they do, provide the same level of customer service previously mentioned, and are an absolute pleasure to work with. The hardest part of the job is the monetary compensation, the most enjoyable part of this job is the learning experience that comes with providing customer service to such a wide range of customer.
Manager (Current Employee) – Washington State – October 5, 2016
Upper management is ok. Difficult to make labor without manager working a position.. high expectations for just ok pay. I feel like they hire a manager to manage but in reality they micro manage the manager. Labor must be kept low.. so difficult to satisfy customer if busier then forecast. They should allow little more labor scheduled and hold manager accountable for making correct labor based on business. Overall good company.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Madera, CA – October 10, 2016
When i first started working here at Round Table Pizza it was great to work there, they help you in any questions you have. The owner is very friendly and easy to communicate with. There are a few employees who are not customer service and work friendly. They are very rude and criticizing. but for your lunch breaks you do get free food and soda on the plus side you get long hours there.
Crew Leader/Trainer (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – June 17, 2016
My particular location started out with wonderful management, but when my original manager left, her replacement was kind of a pushover. My store was a constant mess. We had a bug infestation for months. To clean the floors, we dumped tubs of hot, soapy water on the floor. I got paid minimum wage to run the kitchen alone for hours at a time, making pizzas and cooking them, start to finish, without any help. Delivery drivers get paid $1.25/delivery instead of per mile. Cashiers didn't get credit card tips because the tip line was removed from the receipts. We got burned and slipped almost every day. I got sick and was punished for calling out of work. The only thing that made everything worth keeping that job was my coworkers. We became great friends and tried to make the best of every situation. The prices of the pizza went up every year I worked there, so eventually the cheap pizza became not so cheap.
Cheap pizza, great coworkers that became friends
10 minute breaks, constant slip risks, constant burn risks, pizza sauce stains on everything, managers yell a lot, customers are impatient
Cashier/Food Prep (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – July 12, 2016
typical day involved pizza making/cashier duties and front of the house duties. I learned how to handle money as well as how to operate a touch screen cashier monitor as well as customer service. Co workers were sociable but also immature at times. Hardest part was being left alone to do multiple things when i got busy and there was no help.
Easy work, sociable coworkers
no benefits, no pay increase, no job advancement, poor hours and pay
Friendly work environment, no benefits, no security
Team Member (Current Employee) – Claremont, CA – May 17, 2016
Work is what you make of it. It can be fun or boring. I learned that I do not want to spend more than a few months here because there is no room for advancement. Management is very friendly. Coworkers vary in attitudes from grumpy to happy. The hardest part of the job is knowing there is no room to advance in life. The smell of delicious pizza and some customers can make your day.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Elko, NV – October 8, 2016
The food wasn't that good. Management was not ever at any point professional. Everyone hungout after work so there was always drama. I never had enough hours even though I was one of very few who worked hard.
Front Counter Cashier (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – June 4, 2016
Round table was a great first job to start out with, ever since the original owner passed away and the new management took over. The restaurant closed down and moved to a downstairs food court. Ever since the move and being under the new management, a lot of things changed. The only thing that kept me motivated to come in were the customers.
Server (Former Employee) – Renton, WA – October 9, 2016
When clocking in when I got to work I would start looking for boxes to fold. I would help in the kitchen with cutting the pizza and serving it to the customers table when it was ready. I enjoyed talking to customers when I was a cashier because I recognized people i knew.
Manager (Current Employee) – Benicia, CA – June 9, 2016
A typical day at work at Round Table Pizza would be coming in at 9AM and starting prep work, getting the restaurant in order and being ready to open at 11AM. Making sure my staff members are preforming duties correctly and efficiently while I handle bookkeeping and any possible maintenance needing to be done that morning. I've learned so much in the four years I've worked here, from cleaning tables starting out to rolling pizza dough, to managing the entire restaurant. Working in any kind of retail job position really helps interpersonal skills and dealing with any customer need first hand, Ive learned to be able to accommodate just about any customer need or concern. I absolutely love my boss and coworkers, its a very friendly and family oriented environment which makes it very easy going to work there. The hardest part of the job for me is being short handed, and to fix that, I briefly explain to the customer as to whats going on and simply up the wait time according to the size of the order. The best part of the job is getting calls back from a delivery or take out saying how wonderful their pizza was and how happy they were about the quality of their order, and efficiency of the order being placed.
