Round Table Pizza can be fun and stressfull at time's
Customer Service/ prep (Former Employee), Silverdale, WA – September 26, 2014
Pros: free lunch and tips
Cons: stressfull and at time's really hard to keep one's temper undercontrol
Every day at Round Table Pizza was different there were fast and slow day's. I handled each day as they come for me since I was mainly food prep I cut the veggie's made the pizza suace , set up the salad bar for the day.So my typical day would start out by fiinding out what I had to do for the day on my prep list. I learned to be on feet and to expect – more... the unexpected because we never new what the day would bring. The managment staff was for the most part making sure we were doing or job's and taking care of any problems that came up we had a pretty good staff had a lot of fun telling each other things about are self's and joking around from time to time. The hardest part of my job I would have to say was trying to get my prep list done and helping out with customer's and phone order's cleaning table's and making sure thing got done when they had to be, that and lefting ten gallon buck of ice five time's for the salad bar really make's you stronger and tired you out the most. I enjoyed seeing those customer's walk out of the restruarton happy and full and haveing them come up and say that was the best pizza I ever had I'm comeing back for more. – less
DELIVERY DRIVER (Former Employee), Rancho Cordova, CA – September 21, 2014
In my personal experience, this company does not care for their employees at all. My shifts were rarely given the appropriate breaks per hours worked. The restaurant itself is filthy, and badly in need of technology upgrades. I worked there for 3 years and 3 months, and saw a total of $0.30 in raises over all that time, and not for lack of performance. – more... This company also refuses to give their employees more than 28 hours a week so they can avoid having to pay for health insurance. – less
Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Reno, NV – September 15, 2014
Pros: free personal pizza on 8 hour shift.
Cons: good luck with scheduling
RTP is a fast paced environment that may or may not expect too much from it's underpaid employees at times. At times it is also the kind of job where you run out of things to do. This creates a need for effective, intelligent management, scheduling, and decision making. Unfortunately my location was often lacking in those departments, forcing me to – more... handle business far above my pay grade just to keep the restaurant moving smoothly during my shifts. RTP is an employee owned company, and once you have worked there a year, you begin to receive a small percentage of the company's annual earnings. This small number increases based on your time with the company. – less
A great opportunity for anyone who is starting to work.
Crew (Former Employee), Los Angeles – September 9, 2014
Pros: free food sometimes, flexible rules and hours
Cons: unmotivated workers
A typical word involved coming in and switching the food items while preparing for the rush later on. After that, everyone wants to leave yet there is still cleaning to be done. Management was nonexistent sometimes. My co-workers did not want to work. The hardest part of the job was a negative work environment involving my unmotivated peers. The most – more... enjoyable part was having flexible hours. – less
Crew Member (Current Employee), Davis, CA – September 8, 2014
A typical work day at Round Table Pizza is hard to describe. As most anyone who has worked in the food industry knows, every day is different. Each day brings its own challenges. While working here, I gained skills concerning customer service, time management, and adaptability. The coworkers that I met during this experience were a tight knit group. – more... Because it was my first real job, I was very shy and felt the need to keep to myself. If I were to do this job over again that is one of the things that I would change. The hardest part of this job was when I, along with my coworkers, needed to learn how to complete every aspect of the job. Unlike other workplaces where a worker might have one job, you are expected to learn how to make pizzas, serve the pizzas, work the cash registers, properly dispose and clean up food and trash, etc...The most enjoyable part of the job were the days where I was the person in charge in the main part of the restaurant. I do not mean that I managed the entire restaurant. However, there were some days where the restaurant was slow so the person in charge would take the time to complete any office work that needed to be done. I would be left to complete the majority of the tasks: making the pizzas, holding down the oven, serving the pizzas, answering the phones, and working the cash register. I gained immense satisfaction when I reached the point of no longer having to ask questions. I knew how to complete every task and I knew where all of the items were. It generally takes a while to get to know the restaurant because the worker is learning how to do every single job. It was a great experience. I recommend this restaurant as a great place to work as well as a great place to eat. – less
Fun work environment with many advancing opportunities
Supervisor (Former Employee), Sparks, NV – August 21, 2014
I generally opened and closed as a supervisor. On any given day I would prep, drive, train new employees, run my shift efficiently, relieve bottlenecks, handle customer complications, work registers, close tills, cash out drivers, and motivate the crew to communicate and work together. I learned a lot about stepping into a leadership position and how – more... to efficiently run a shift as well as the store when our managers had to leave for a meeting. My co-workers were the best. We had a lot of fun while getting out work done in a timely manner. The hardest part of the job was stepping into a supervisor position after creating so many friendships. I was afraid that they would think that I was being bossy. I learned how to separate my personal life from my work life which helped everything run more smoothly. The most enjoyable part of work was when we just finished a hectic, busy shift and we could all take a second to breathe. Even though we all may have been irritated or tired, we still found a way to start laughing and make the work environment fun again. – less
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee), Vacaville, CA – August 18, 2014
Pros: free food for managers
Cons: pay, hours, scheduling, and no benefits.
Shift Supervisor hourly pay rate suffers due to the California States minimum wage increase, while Shift Supervisor tasks and responsibilities have increased due to extra labor cuts. Less pay + More work = Discouragement and Lack of Motivation to Shift Supervisors who are expected to maintain the same, or raise the Quality of Management/Marketing skills – more... while taking a financial detriment after being loyal to the company for 7 years.
Made minimum wage for the first 4 years of employment. Only got a raise when promoted to management. – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Lynnwood, WA – July 12, 2014
Pros: free meals
Cons: no benefits
I thoroughly enjoyed working for this company. Their slogan is true to the word. The Last Honest Pizza. I learned how hard and how easy it is to work in a restaurant environment as long as the right conditions of a pleasant crew and understanding management are met.
all in all a great experience, as a job and a place to get great pizza and a friendly visit.
Cashier, Server (Former Employee), Anchorage, AK – July 3, 2014
Pros: great and happy working environment.
Cons: not the best rate of pay.
a typical day at this work place was both exciting and fun. I enjoyed my bosses as well as my co workers. As soon as you clock in, its straight to work. Either taking customers orders or helping any of my co workers that need assistance finishing or getting a task done.
Crew Member (Current Employee), Tacoma, WA – July 2, 2014
Pros: food is discounted, people are great
Cons: hectic at times, lack of hours
9 times out of 10 when I head in to work I know I'll have a good time. I've learned how to handle unruly customers and to compromise so that everyone is pleased. All of my managers are pretty cool people, and I enjoy the company of my co workers. The hardest part of the job has to be when it is either busy or we are low on stock because the goal is – more... to not run out of anything during business time and to make sure that we are getting the pizzas done in a timely order no matter how many orders there are. The best part of the job is when the customer compliments you on the food or your service, It is just nice to be recognized for the work you put in. – less
Prep Cook (Former Employee), Roseville, CA – June 21, 2014
Pros: great enviornment and awesome co workers.
Cons: not alot of hours.
I had a great time working here. A Lot of people i worked with there im still friends with today. A typical day would be coming in at 9, going over my prep list of stuff that needed to be made, and making those toppings or crust or sauce. Management was great there! Very easy to talk to and get along with. I learned how to make pizza sauce and dough – more... and how to prepare toppings for pizza. Also how to run a register and count a drawer down at the end of my shift. – less
