Team Member (Current Employee) – West Warwick, RI – November 18, 2018
Good place to work. Very friendly people and staff. Quick-paced place of employment as orders come in at rapid speed and need to be sent out very quickly. Overall good part-time job for maybe a high school student.
Cashier and Pizza Maker (Former Employee) – Chelsea, MA – November 17, 2018
I really enjoyed my time working there. You had typical stress just like any other job. But the other workers and management were great at helping out and helping to relieve stress. It cool all the workers are fun and diverse you can have fun there.
Team member (Former Employee) – Cranston, RI – November 6, 2018
This job was easy when you got the hang off it. Some of the managers you get for the job will not really train you correctly on how to do your job, it would be team members, shift leaders or assistant managers who put in the hard work to train workers. The job is very stressful when things are done incorrectly and someone does not help you when you're busy. Working there definitely gives you great cooking skill. However, it is a pain some days. They also would inconvenience yourself and make you do a lot of work that you do not get paid enough to do. The best way to say this is, in order to make a really good pay, you either have to have over 30 hours or become a manager because not even the shift leaders make a lot, they get at least 70 cents more than the team members which is upsetting that we do not get increase in pay rate as a shift leader. It was also upsetting when my job did not inform any of the workers that they were closing our location. I need the money to pay bills.
My team was a nice group of people who got laid off without any notice. Many of them had families to pay for they had lives and that was all taken away from them yesterday when corporation walked in and told us to shut off all the machines and leave because our establishment was no longer in service. Frankly I believe Papa Gino's is going out of business and applying to a store would be a waste because you will probably suffer our same fate. The thing that was most off-putting was the fact that they told managers to reapply. These Managers have been loyal to this company for years and all they got in return was a slap to the face. This business has zero respect for their employees.
The lack of respect the company has for their employees
papa gino's has no respect for the people that work for them
Driver/Delivery (Former Employee) – acton ma – November 4, 2018
today papa gino's permanently closed it's Acton location. it did so with out any notice to it's employees. the people that were supposed to work today, showed up to locked doors. reportedly this happened to a couple of dozen other locations as well. i was a delivery driver. i worked at papa ginos for four and a half years. in that time drivers were never given a raise. we were also changed from hourly employees to tip employees so papa ginos could avoid giving us raises when the minimum wage went up in 2016 and 2017.
there are no pros, no respect, no raises, no future
Shift Leader (Current Employee) – Medway, MA – October 6, 2018
It all depends on who your manager is depends on you experience, some managers are abusive both verbal and physical, others really care about you as a person. Trying to communicate to anyone is impossible and communication through the company is terrible.
Cook/Cashier (Former Employee) – Auburn, ME – September 25, 2018
The typical day at work, would depend on the time of day and what day it is. I learned how to be fast pace The management was awesome and fun The hardest part of the jobs, were being on my feet for 9 hours on Saturdays, with ONE 30 min break What I liked most about the job was the people, we would always have fun there, it was like a little family.
To start, the management immediately made my priorities count. I was in school, and they had no problems integrating my school work with their work. The team members were quick learners, and dependable. The hours were good, and the pay was fine.
Manager (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – September 17, 2018
The company is loosely structured and their standards are dwindling. It is definitely a lot of work for little compensation. Once you reach management level (salary) you will definitely be taken advantage of, and the shining stars that could have been great will quickly fizzle out and move on. Sad to see just how many of the Papa Gino's, D'Angelo's brand restaurants are being shut down for losing sight of their core values. The only saving grace for this franchise, which is keeping them afloat, all comes back to location, location, location.
New England staple, very unique and delicious pizza
Lack of structure, standards and their uncanny ability to sweep things under the rug
DELIVERY DRIVER (Current Employee) – Brockton, MA – August 30, 2018
Being a delivery driver can be a slow paced or fast paced day. A typical day day at work consists of cleaning up the store . (boxes , trash.etc) hardest part of the job can be sometimes getting people their food by their desired time, where the most enjoyable part of the job is helping others or new team members new things.
